Families visiting Jerusalem have a unique opportunity to enjoy the culture and history of one of the oldest cities in the world. The area also offers guests plenty of chances for adventure. The New Victoria Hotel Jerusalem boasts a prime location in the middle of the excitement, and spacious guestrooms can accommodate four guests. Each room comes complete with flat-screen televisions, private bathrooms and air-conditioning. The onsite restaurant serves a variety of kosher and internationally inspired meals. Kids will enjoy the children’s programming, while parents can take advantage of the massage services. A day trip to the Dead Sea is highly recommended.

We stayed here for 4 nights in May. Our thoughts:
1. VERY convenient. 5 min walk to Herod's Gate or 10 min to main Damascus gate
2. Good room air conditioning. It was 98 when we were there, and we needed it.
3. Very clean
4. No bugs
5. Kind front desk staff: they'll call you a cab, help you in any way! Yes, they understand English well
6. Full morning breakfast. Good, tasty, a variety of eggs, lots of regional salads, croissant, jam, cereal, etc.
1. Above the toilet in our room, there were TWO signs: "Do not flush the toilet paper. Put in in bin/wastepaper basket." When I asked the front desk whether we could get another room that didn't have this restriction, they said, "No, otherwise it will clog." I have experienced this before, in the Greek Islands and also a small restaurant in the Caribbean where the plumbing was old and you couldn't use toilet paper: you threw the disgustingly dirty soiled paper in the wastepaper basket which was cleaned every day. If you know this beforehand and don't mind it, fine. If you're surprised by this [as I was], then your stay is made longer, as you really know this isn't the best way to handle things.
2. Things aren't new [bedding, furniture, etc], and they show their wear. But, it's clean.
3. I could only get Arab-speaking stations on the TV. Well, we were there for the sights, and not the TV....
4. Street noise: Honking is big in Israel, particularly Jerusalem. I have stayed in major cities [London, Chicago, New York, Athens, Istanbul] and they don't honk their car horns as often as they do in Israel. It'll be the last thing you hear at night and first thing in the morning. It ends about 11 pm to accommodate a night's sleep.
