I had the privelege of staying in the ultra re vamped gloria,having read reviews that I was expecting to cart luggage up a flight of stairs to be greeted by some old lady! Nonsense, straight in from the cobbled old world street left from the Jaffa Gate and Tower of David to a warm welcome of an obviously up dated re modled way above average hotel. My room was just across the cobbled street in a separate building. As a single traveller I was amazed to be placed in a bright modern twin bedded room with full bathroom, spotlessly clean and very very comfortable including TV with English film and news stations. The breakfast in the main hotel building is as good as you will get anywhere and really sets you up for the day ahead. There is a bar (one of only a few in the Old City) with friendly staff and a full range of beers wines spirits and of course excellant coffee. Tours seem to favour the venue but they also cater for the individual. A haven after a long day slogging the the street of a City of diversity and intrigue. You are literally in the centre of everything cultural charming busy and welcoming when you book with confidence to stay in the Gloria Hotel Jerusalem. This is real value for money and I would have no hesitation in re visiting this gem in the gem of Old Jerusalem.
