The reception is apparently luxurious but the rooms and bathrooms are very modest, with old and worn-out furniture, the walls were dirty and the room was small. Also the AC was loud and not very efficient.

Very pleasant stay at this property. Rooms were clean and spacious, nothing luxurious but well-appointed. Balconies were small but view of the hills amazing. Best feature was the restaurant - with very affordable dinners and excellent food. Kudos to Chef Ahmad in the hotel restaurant - excellent meals on the buffet with really good service.

This hotel seems to be the choice for groups of pilgrims visiting the Holy Land and this is all the hotel seem to care about. I stayed with my family and apart from one waiter all other staff are unprofessional and have a couldn't care less attitude. The reception is deceiving as looks quite nice, but the rooms were tatty... More

I have stayed in the hotel in 2010. It is very decent 3 star property with all basic amenities. The rooms was very clean with adequate space. The breakfast was also very good with all continental stuff. The beautiful lobby I have seen in 3 star category hotel in Bethlehem is in this property. Outside is also very quiet with... More

Recently returned from leading a pilgrim group which included five nights at the Sancta Maria Hotel. Service was excellent, nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Accommodation and food very good for this grade of hotel although as a vegetarian, the occasional non-meat meal would have been welcome. Would recommend a more eco-friendly approach to changing towels everyday i.e.... More

We stayed in Sancta Maria for a total of 3 nights with our tour group in October 2012. It is an average type of family-run hotel. I noticed that they were under staffed; where only one person manning the front desk when they knew that 70+ persons were coming. Two elderly porters were there to carry the luggage for 3... More

Disappointed that we are not able to stayed in this hotel due to the renovation going on on the time we visit Bethlehem instead we went to the alternative hotel known as Good Shepherd Hotel which I could say a relatively good hotel with nice food and very helpful staff. We arrived very late at night and we had a... More

We went to the holy city for about 4 days, the Hotel is in average condition (even though the Owner told me it is about 6 years old). The lobby and restaurant are in good condition having also free internet & nice furniture, it is very clean as well. Now going to the stair case and rooms, you may find... More
