perfect location to visit the old and new part of Jerusalem. You could walk to downtown, or visit the Church of Holy Sepulchre, or the big, modern shopping mall near Jaffa gate, all on foot. I don't know any other hotel that can be better located than Notre Dame. I was very happy with my choice. the cordial and welcoming staff, yummy breakfast. spacious rooms, Notre Dame is a great choice. I'm going to stay in Notre Dame when I visit Jerusalem again.
the room was excellent, but there was no coffee, tea. we arrived late at night in the cold, and I was hoping to be able to warm ourselves with hot tea. (Plus, daughter had a bit of cold) As there was no coffee machine, I went to lobby, but the restaurants and cafes were closed, and I had no way to get hot water. The staff provided me with a thermo with hot water, but the water wasn't enough for a sick child and two adults to get through the night. Notre Dame is, by definition, a 'guest house' for pilgrims and not a 'hotel,' and that's why they say they don't offer mini-fridge or coffee in the room. But then, the price of the hotel or its other amenities are no different from other hotels, so why not offer hot tea and coffee? Other than that, I loved everything about Notre Dame.
