Issa was warmly welcoming from our first phone and email exchanges. I spent two very quiet nights, with no other guests and Rawda in Germany helping to settle their two children into their studies. Issa could not have been more helpful, giving me lifts to Bir Zeit for a meeting and Ramallah to catch the bus, driving with me to... More

This was my best trip ever. I always wanted to visit the west bank, but this was my first time there. The guest house is located in Jifna which is a village with a population of 3000. My sister and I stayed there for 4 nights. It's close to Ramallah and you pay 4 shekels = $1 for a cab(service)... More

I cannot thank the Khouriya family enough for their generosity and hospitality. This was the best trip and stay in Palestine ever. At first, we researched other guesthouses and decided on this one due to the incredible positive reviews online, and they were right! We stayed in the mini apartment on the ground level, it was clean and very comfortable.... More

Staying with Rawda and family in the West Bank was such a delightful experience. Rawda and Issa's homegrown and homemade breakfast items were one of the best parts, but not to top the sweetness of the two family guest house owners. It was an eye-opening experience to talk with Rawda and Issa about living in the Palestinian Christian community in... More

. This was a horrible stay for me and my family. I am not one to complain about hotels--I have stayed in some very cheap, basic hotels and I was content. This place just does not deserve the acclaim it has gotten on Trip Advisor. At first we were surprised by the beautiful view in Jifna. The house at first... More

Rouda and Issa are wonderful hosts at this amazing guest house. They are a great example of Palestinian hospitality. Rawda's food is superb and Issa can take you on some very interesting trips. Nothing is too much trouble for them. The accommodation is very good, the rooms are clean, comfortable and well furnished. The village of Jifna is a friendly... More

My first stop was Jordan followed by Palestine, Israel, Sinai and Egypt (where I am typing this) and still, my sty with the Khouriya family has been the highlight in every way. Issa and Rawda are the warmest, most hospitable hosts who go out of their way to make sure your needs are taken care of, no matter how small... More

I organized several nights at the guesthouse for two groups of 10 people. It was an absolutely amazing experience. The guesthouse is comfortable, and stunningly beautiful. Rawda and her family are extremely kind, and went far out of their way to accommodate our schedule. Rawda cooked a lovely breakfast, over which we had a warm conversation about Palestinian culture. Each... More

I really felt at home for 5 days, this fantastic family gives me the possibility to let definitely enter in my heart the wonderful Palestine and the warm Palestinians. Moreover the house is comfortable and the breakfast delicious! I will never forgot Khouriya Family... More

Rawda and Issa go beyond simple hospitality - they shared their home, their experiences and ideas, and the time we spent with them made a lasting impression on us. In particular, we would recommend taking Issa up on his offer to drive you around the area. He's a wealth of insights and will teach you a lot about the region.... More
