Good place considering that it caters mostly to groups. Rooms are good, although not very well maintained. No coffee maker in the room. Switches and plugs a little shaky. The buffet meals were very good with a lot of variety - Palestinian and Mediterranean dishes. Very friendly staff. Value for money.

This hotel is set up to cater for the package pilgrimage market, services offered reflect this. Staff are very helpful, whether restaurant, front desk or those who care for rooms. If eating there solo travellers need to arrive at the same time as the group or there is not food left. Disregard to opening times of the restaurants! My room... More

Don't expect luxury given the price point and location. If you want to visit areas in Bethlehem, the location is good. However, getting into and out of Jerusalem is a pain especially if it is early morning or late night. Only some cabs are willing to cross the border and they are likely to fleece you!

To those traveling to the West Bank, be advised that firstly, the culture will be shocking for those who have never been to the Middle East before. It's quite extreme in terms of outside surroundings, even for someone coming from Israel. The standards of this hotel however, do match up with some of the more run-down establishments in the west.... More

Rooms are little poky but not bad. The shower space is very small, couldn't move much in it. There was air conditioning in the toilet which made me shiver! Had amazing sleep at this hotel though. Bethlehem was nice with cool winds. It is a few minutes drive to Shepherd's Church from the hotel. The buffet facilities were great -... More

This hotel is in a great location and I believe in supporting businesses in the West Bank, but this hotel is dirty. The towels are heavily starched and one had dried blood on it. I don't need anything fancy but I do need clean.

We stayed in this hotel during our visit in Bethlehem and the place is really nice esp we have the spacious room on the 4 floor with the excellent view of the sorrounding area of the old town.

I went to the hotel with my wife and my 3 children for 2 nights on Easter. The hospitality was great and the hotel is located well within the center so we could walk into the old city and the marketplace by foot. We were located on the 5th floor while the rooms were relatively clean the windows were so... More
