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. The hotel looks very simple outside but the staff is friendly with good service and they have maintained the cleanliness in the... More

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

This hotel offered the best service and most hospitality I have ever encountered at a hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful and was eager to serve its guest. I felt safe the entire time and was treated fairly and just. It was a good experience. The only negative was that the wi-fi service was a little sketchy at times... More

I regularly bring groups to stay here whilst on pilgrimage to the Holy Land. It is a comfortable mid-range hotel with very friendly staff and good facilities. Spacious rooms many with good views. Good food provided in 2 restaurants. Located close to the old town of Bethlehem and an easy walk through the markets to the Church of the Nativity.... More

The Shepherd Hotel is a convenient and comfortable hotel. You will experience warmth and professional hospitality from the Palestinians at the hotel. Nothing is too much trouble. The food is first class and the proportions are very generous. The rooms are well-appointed and of a good size. Finally, you have ease of access from the hotel to the Church of... More

Situated close to the centre of Bethlehem but on a quiet sidestreet, this hotel is cool and comfortable. The staff are very obliging and helpful. Always willing to please. The hotel has a sort of faded elegance - when staying here you will become part of the local community. A couple of doors down the road is the local bakery... More
