“Cheap and good location, average rooms”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

First impressions: Judging from the ordinary-looking facade, I wasn't quite sure what was "new" about the New Victoria Hotel. Perhaps, it's under new management? Averaging between 55 British Pounds (low season) to about 100 British Pounds per night (deluxe suite at peak season), this is relatively cheap for its 3-star rating. Grade B.

Pros: Location... location... location is a big plus. This hotel is a mere 5-minute walk to Herod's Gate or 10 minutes to Damascus Gate of the Walled Old City of Jerusalem and, if you wish to bus it up to the Mount of Olives, an 8-minute walk to the bus station. Rooms are decent enough, not too shabby. A buffet breakfast, A/C and WiFi access are complimentary. Desk service is friendly, speaks English and are accommodating. They can arrange airport transfers for you. Rates are of good value for what you get.

Cons: For all of its excellent location, the hotel is not easy to find. I had to carry a map around to help me get back. The hotel is tucked away inside an Arab neighborhood, whose shops close and streets grow dark too early in the evening. The A/C (or heater) is a hit-or-miss affair. And the free breakfast can get monotonous in a hurry. Lastly, despite what the receptionist tells you, reserve a space for airport transfers the day before.

Verdict: This is a hotel meant for non-fussy budget travellers, looking only for a place to sleep --- nothing more. Excellent value for what you get. Anything cheaper and you're looking at youth hostels. I would not necessarily discourage you from choosing this hotel, just don't expect a lot.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2012

East Jerusalem is a Muslim quarter with everything what belongs to it... Allthough we never felt in danger even in the evening with the kids. At night (after 9 p.m.) the quarter is empty and quiet.
The position is really good - 5 minutes from Herods Gate and 10 minutes walk from Damascus Gate and the Bus terminal
The staff at the reception was extremely helpful and friendly. I was not very happy with the breakfast - the choise was very poor (e.g.arabic bread only).
We had a problem with the final payment - the credit card machine seemed not to be working, so my husband had to pick up cash from the ATM. The lady at the reception offered to cover our extra bank costs for the cash pick up - so we were happy at the end.
