We stayed here a week while on Pilgrimage (my husband arrived a few days early). He originally had a smaller room, but they moved us to a bigger room when I arrived and he said the bathroom was quite a bit larger (more counter space). It was perfectly adequate--even previous popes have stayed there, so you're staying on Holy Ground!... More

Stayed for just under a fortnight. Great location, okay hotel. Some of the rooms are very small and cramped; others are reasonably spacious. My room was uncomfortably warm all the time (even when it was snowing outside!), had to leave the windows open, fan on full. Some rooms pick up wifi; others don't. Room I stayed in was apparently one... More

Wow, this is a treasure! The location couldn't be better - right across the street from the New Gate to Old Jerusalem. It was gorgeous, safe, the staff was amazing. It was at once old world and stunningly up to date. I can't remember loving a hotel so much. PROS: Location Physical beauty of the hotel inside and out The... More

The Notre Dame Center was a beautiful hotel with exceptional staff, very good buffet, and perfect location directly across the street from the New Gate entrance to the Old City. Safe, very clean, well appointed and has free wi-fi.

Experience the castle-esque granduer of the Notre Dame Pontifical Institute, offering the spiritual ambiance of a 19th Century monastery coupled by the luxury of a middle eastern palace in the epicenter of Jerusalem. It is directly across from the entrance to the old city, and walking distance to the Holy Sepulchre, Via Dolorosa, etc. You will not find a more... More

On our tour of the Old city we walked out of one gate and into the Noter Dame Guest House for our group lunch. A very nice buffet was set up in one of the eating areas. The staff came quickly with a drink cart and the group was impressed with the quality of the food. It is a nice... More

Wonderful, wonderful. Thank you. Every time I stay there, always a great experience. Food great, service great, staff so helpful. Location perfect. Arguably the price is slightly high, but well worth it. Stay there, you won't regret it, promise. All my people who have stayed there cannot praise it enough.

This hotel is opposite from New Gate, the gate closest to the Christian Quarter of the Old City of Jerusalem. It is a pleasant hotel, with stone walls throughout, pleasant staff, and a few restaurants.The hotel is owned by the Vatican, which explains the high number of Catholic guests, lay and religious. However, it is not off-putting in any way... More

Excellent place to explore Old Town Jerusalem. It is located just outside New Gate, Christian Quarter. The hotel has 3 restaurants (wine and cheese bar upstairs has a great view of Old Town)and very pleasant and peaceful atmosphere. This is a whole complex. We even attended Christmas Concert there with the locals from around town. We felt so welcomed and... More
