Spent four nights in bustling Jerusalem and found this hotel to be a real gem offering a relaxed calm oasis in the old city. 1 minute from the Jaffa Gate this hotel is convenient for almost anywhere in old Jerusalem. Our family of four where part of a 15 person group and we were all roomed on the first floor. Some rooms were a little noisy if they were overlooking a street but our room overlooked a courtyard garden and other than the call to prayer and church bells chiming we were not disturbed.
The rooms were character full as are the public spaces. We particularly enjoyed the stone vaulted bar and lounge areas were we met each night to chat about our day. The dinning room is currently undergoing improvements and is probably not the Gloria' s best feature at present but the view is magnificent. The food is standard buffet style with plenty of choice. A good hotel for groups and those on a budget wanting a character full hotel.
