Reviewed 9 March 2013

Ideally situated as a base for exploring the Holy City of Jerusalem. My wife and I were part of a 20-strong group and enjoyed our time at the Gloria very much indeed. Staff are friendly and service-oriented - front desk is efficient and effective - everything 'works' as it should - meals are tasty and plentiful - food is of a good standard and wines and beers etc are of good standard and good value. Location is top-notch - you can virtually 'walk everywhere'' in Jerusalem from this convenient base.

Room Tip: We occupied room 171 on first floor - away from lift and 'passing traffic' - quiet and comfo...

Just inside the Jaffa Gate the location is great for exploring the old city. The Hotel itself is refurbished and comfortable, front of house staff were excellent and extremely helpful less so in the restaurant but certainly a great place to stay in Jerusalem. If you read the Lonely Planet guide there doesn't seem much to chose between the Gloria and the New Imperial, that's not the case the Gloria is a much more comfortable option.

I have stayed here several times. If location is everything... this is the place. Just inside the Jaffa Gate in the Old City. It just minutes from any location. The hotel has an old world feel. Rooms are simple but clean. Meals are simple but good. Book early it seems very popular.

Despite the excellent location in the Old City steps away from the Jaffa Gate, and the attentive front desk staff and management, the use of scented laundry products and the spraying of a sickly sweet perfumed air freshener in the rooms and hallways made it almost unbearable for my companion and me. With increasing numbers of travelers suffering from allergies and chemical sensitivities to environmental pollutants, it's incomprehensible how some hotels continue to allow the use of scented detergents.

Right at the Jaffa Gate and close to everything worth seeing and doing in Jerusalem. Helpful and friendly personel, good, service. Desent restaurant and comfortable rooms. There is also a roof terrace from which you have magnificent viuw over the city.

The best part about this hotel is its location just next to the Jaffa gate inside the wall. From here you can easily walk to all sights. The rooms were clean, the heating worked well and the windows could be opened. Breakfast was good and there was a buffet dinner available at night, but we did not try it. A taxi or small van can drive to the entrance to the hotel. It is worth going up to the roof for views over the city especially for sunset. It was quiet here during the winter. The staff were helpful and friendly. While we were there we could see some renovations going on especially in the halls. There was not much provision to hang towels in the bathroom an extra towel rail would be a big improvement.

The pros:

Good location, in old Jerusalem, right beside the Jaffa gate and very near Mamilla shopping area. Great.

In general, clean and decent rooms and premises.

What I disliked the most:

Poor breakfast in a very outdated hall. Awful coffee, awful scrambled, undrinkable juices.

No staff attending the bar three out of four times I went there for a coffee. On top of this, breakfast served until 9,30 am only...

The exchange rate they apply if you do not pay in USD, unacceptable. Make sure you pay the bill in the same currency you made the reservation.

Apart from this, ok place...
