All of the overdone and glaringly qauche artistic flair was quite distracting to me. Maybe I went at the wrong time of day since it was extremely overcrowded.

Situated in the old city. The church is amazing. Very crowded. Go early if you can. We went several times to view the tomb of Jesus. The inside of the church is the final stations of the cross. Very special.

I don't think you can stay in the church itself. There is plenty of accommodation around there although I suggest staying outside the old city.
