good value and amazing people! We had great conversations with Sami and his son and they went out of their way to help us with everything. Its located out of the center but there are service taxis running back ná forth for only 2.5 shekels per person!

If you arrive in Jericho and ask for advice on accommodation, you will be sent here. They have some sort of affilliation, one of thevstaff lives there. Entering the lobby, from the unbearable heat of Jericho, you feel a welcoming waft of icy cold air. The lobby is comfortable, rows of couches, air conditioning, big screen tv with a large... More

We decided on making stopover in Jericho to see some of the sites and to be relatively close to : The Allenbey Bridge for a possible crossing to the Kingdom of Jordan; The Holy City of Jerusalem and the Dead Sea. Spent three days exploring Jericho and surrounding areas. (There is much to see !) After dropping into the local... More

We enjoyed our time here and it was a pleasure to talk with some Palestinians over tea. Easy to get around Jericho from this location although walking was a bit far. Still it was safe and everyone was helpful. You have to remember that this is the West Bank so the conditions are a little sketchy. I think everyone will... More

Gave us free dinner and tea; rooms are nice though there were some ants in the common area. Split the rooms among enough people and you couldn't... More

Very clean. Rooms are basic but good value for money. We paid 120 NIS for a 3 bed room (so 40 NIS per person). Sami is helpful, polite and genuine. Catch a service van (equivilant of a local bus) for 2.5 NIS from the city centre. Private taxi will cost 10-15 NIS. It is located near the Intercontinental Hotel. There... More
