“Impressive hotel and location”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

The Notre Dame is really an impressive place to stay. Not only the hotel itself is unique, also the location could not be better. It is just outside the walls of the historic center of Jerusalem.
The building is overwhelming, it is big and beautifully restored.
The rooms are nice although some items are lacking: there is no television and no refrigerator. This does not mean that the room is basic. There is airconditioning, the bathroom is comfortable.
Furthermore there are restaurants in the hotel to choose from. None too expensive.
The breakfast is also disorderly as tourist groups overpower individual guests.
There is a free parking although this is a really chaotic place; do not be surprised to park on the sidewalk.
Another thing: there are no signs on the outside, so you have to know where you are going.
Sumarizing: a unforgettable experience!

Fantastic central location, very close to Mamila and directly outside the old City. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean, simple and modern, beds are reasonably comfortable. The bathrooms seem to be newly renovated and nicely appointed. The rooftop bar has a magnificent view and decent wines. We had a great stay, we were tourists only and felt completely welcome. I highly recommend it and would stay there again. Great value for price (considering how expensive decent hotel rooms are these days).

I recently stayed at Notre Dame Guest House in Jerusalem. It was my first time staying there. It's a very good place to stay and a perfect and ideal place to stay for pilgrimage to the Holy Land. The access to the chapel was very convenient to have my pilgrim group to be able to have private Holy Hour as part of our pilgrimage horarium. The bed is very comfortable. Free access to safe deposit box. The only thing I am not marking "excellent" is because you have to pay for the internet service. This should be made available for free like any other guest houses (at least at particular areas like the lobby); otherwise, it would be excellent.

I can not say anything about the hotel but rooftop restaurant has amazing view and good cuisine, too!
Good meat dishes and huge variety of cheeses from all over the world. Also good selection of local israelean wines!

Dear Mr.Nicolaos
I am so glad to hear that you and your wife enjoyed your stay at our property and the unfortunate story with a wallet had a happy end. As much as we were lucky to find the wallet, I cannot even imagine that someone from the staff behaves other way than returning it.
Thank you for your nice words and hope to have you as a guest again soon.

Stayed at Notred Dame for 2 nights in Oct 2012.
Very nice venue, castle-like building (although only ~100yrs old) overlooking old town.
Rooms are average at best. No TVs. Guests are typically religious nut-jobs (which can be entertaining but also annoying).
Breakfast very mediocre (more like a 2* hotel).
Very nice bar on top floor with excellent view, however very earthly prices (~15EUR for a GT).

Dear Guest,
Thank you for your time writing some comments after staying at our property. I just would like to drive your attention to the idea of creating Notre Dame Center. From its very beginning, almost 130 years ago, it has been at the service to the Christian pilgrims in the Holy City. Since 1981 Notre Dame Center has a status of The Pontifical Institute. Although our door is opened for the guests from whole over the world and every religion, the fact that the most numerous are Christian pilgrims and clergy, it should not be a surprise. By recent renovation of the public areas as well as rooms we wanted to higher the standard of the Guest Hose, but still to keep the character of a pilgrim center – comfortable, but simple rooms with no TV. If you are interested to know more about the history of Notre Dame, please visit our website: www.notredamecenter.org/About Us/ A historical outline of Notre Dame of Jerusalem Center.
I am very astonished of your remarks regarding our breakfast. Usually we get positive opinions about our open buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner serving variety of local and International cuisine meals- cold and hot appetizers, salads and main courses – meat, poultry and fish as well as great range of sweets. However, we are sorry we did not fulfill your expectations. Hopefully you could find something satisfying you in one of our other three restaurants.
With compliments
