The Gloria Hotel exceeded all our expectations. This small hotel is in the heart of the Christian Quarter in the Old City. Our family stayed here for 5 nights and would definitely stay here again and agian when back in Jerusalem. The rooms are not big but comfortable and the bathrooms are modern with everything you need. The staff are... More

An excellent hotel right inside Jaffa Gate in the Walled City. The property is beautifully decorated and the staff are very helpful. The location is ideal for tourists. The breakfast is not the best, but it's more than adequate for a full day's sightseeing. Highly recommended!

One of the first things to hit you when you enter the Gloria Hotel is the coolness from the completely stone interior and the myrrh burning that permeates the entire hotel. Reading other reviews you may be worried that you are not at the Four Seasons, Gaylord or Hilton: I say, "Praise the Lord." When I travel I do not... More

There are many fine things about this place. I guess I would have to say that the best is the location - so close to everything that you need, including public transportation. But, not far behind is the food, staff and services. The food is really quite good - a nice variety and a lot of it. The chef is... More

On a tour we almost a week here. The accommodations were acceptable but the food was borderline based on our other hotels. The location is fantastic as it is right by the Jaffa gate. The staff was very hospitable but after a couple of days we were looking for someplace to eat. The buffets were typical but no eggs or... More

Stayed for a week May 2015 leading a small Pilgrimage Group. The hotel is in a fantastic location right beside the Jaffa Gate, a few minutes walk from Holy Sepulchure and the Western Wall.

I want to thank George who served us almost every meal. He was quick with a smile, a laugh, a coffee refill and anything else we needed. I was serious about taking you home with me. LOL. Since we spent our majority of time at this hotel (8 days) ; it was wonderful to see George at breakfast and dinner.... More

Stayed 6 nights early May 2015. Located within 3 minute walk of Jaffa Gate and easy access to quarters of Old City. Room and bathroom was clean, with basic furnishings and comfortable bed. Buffet breakfast had typical continental selections. Requested quiet room and was initially located on 2nd floor(Rm 256) facing entrance courtyard and street. Noise from across street restaurant...

This is a wonderful hotel just inside the Jaffa gate of the old city. It has Charm with capital C. The rooms are plain but comfortable and look out on to streets or courtyard. Staff are courteous and efficient. Our room was quiet, but some are closer to hearing prayer calls which might effect sleep. We felt very welcomed here.... More

Despite of last minute planning, I was able to get a room at this very welcoming hotel in the old city of Jerusalem. Situated very close to Jaffa Gate, it was very easy to find. I arrived very early in the morning ( I noticed the hotel prior to arrival) - before normal check in time, but was allowed to... More
