“Awesome location”
Reviewed 20 March 2014

For Pilgrims, this hotel and the Knights Palace which is around the corner cannot be beaten. They are located right in a key part of the city with easy access to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, shopping, etc.

The staff is great, friendly, and will look out for you when they can-giving you tips etc. to save money and time. The food you should get WITH the room as you can really save this way if on a budget. You will be FILLED as the chef puts out quite a spread. The food is Mediterranean/local and very good, nourishing etc. which is what your poor legs and worn out body will likely need!

For cash machines, DO NOT use the one out towards the main street on the corner or any other ones in the area-walk out the Jaffa Gate and down the hill to the upscale shopping street-about halfway down on the left is a REAL ATM with minimal fees, awesome exchange rates etc. Its on the front of a bank.

This hotel is located inside the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem. Excellent location if you are interested in touring around or inside the Old a City. It is a nice hotel given its location and price. Nothing special about the rooms or the food but good & clean. The place is quaint and captures the feel of the area. I would definitely stay there again.

We spent threee nights in the hotle Gloria 2011. We stayed the annexe part opposite the main Hotel. Room was comfortable and clean. We did get quite a lot of noise from outside in the street. The staff were helpful, and stayed on duty on a Saturday on a nite evening when our plane was delayed.I think it was quieter in the main hotel.Tyhe man behind desk was very helpful to my husband loaning shaver charger cord. It is a super location to stay in. Would I stay there again? Sure would!

Room Tip: Stay in main Hotel.

I took a group of 17 people to Israel for a 10 day pilgrimage

This was an excellent hotel and each one of us had a wonderful time. The rooms were excellent and the food good.

I will go there again and am happy to recommend it

I stayed in a triple share room with my mother and sister for three nights and we all really enjoyed our stay.
The location is fantastic - in the Old City just inside the Jaffa Gate.
The hotel setting is charming in a beautiful old building with a warm foyer area and plenty of space to sit and plan your day.
The staff were all very friendly, especially Charlie who was extremely helpful when we were trying to choose what tours to do. He also advised us on the best way to transfer to the airport, where to get cabs from and making phone calls for us as we don't speak any Hebrew!

Our three single beds were very comfortable and we still had enough space for our luggage and to spread out some more. The heating was very efficient - we actually over heated and had to turn it off and open the window!

The wifi worked very well and was quite fast.
We felt safe in the hotel and it is up a side street that doesn't get too much foot traffic or vehicles so it was nice and quiet.

The only disappointment was the breakfast - rather minimal and the bread tasted like it was a few days old.

I would recommend staying there.

Tip: If you reach the hotel by taxi, get them to drop you off at the cab rank inside the Jaffa Gate at the bottom of the Tower of David. Our cab driver dropped us off on the road telling us that was as far as he could take us, leaving us with suitcases at the bottom of lots of steps! We did find ramps so it was no problem at all, only to discover taxis can enter as far as the inside of Jaffa Gate.

We also arranged a taxi to take us to Tel Aviv airport through the hotel for 85 USD and the driver came to the hotel's door so there was no hassle of carrying suitcases over cobblestones. Just make sure you have enough in cash to pay the driver.

Our group of 10 spent two days here. It's a great location in the old city at the Jaffa Gate. It has a nice outdoor courtyard, inviting bar and large seated area where our group met to de-brief at night. My first room had an odd smell but the staff were quick to place me elsewhere. While I had an enjoyable sleep and the room was clean, the rooms do look a bit dated and would benefit from an upgrade. The breakfast included the standard cold selection of cheese and meats but also offered crepes! The dinner choices were limited and uninviting therefore I decided to pass. There is an upmarket shopping mall next to the Jaffa Gate that has dining options. Overall, while I enjoyed the location and found the staff to be friendly, I would be inclined to consider other hotel options.

Room Tip: Ask for the one with the only hotel balcony that overlooks the old walls of the city.
