The hotel is located in a busy Arabic district near Herodos gate. The location is good for exploring the old town but the hotel itself needs reconstruction. During our stay some reconstruction works were already running, probably it will improve the image and quality in the future. But now the public areas, corridors, elevator were very worn out and walls even dirty. We did not like our room ( it was "economy"). Even if the furniture was new, the walls were still dirty, electricty not up to EU standards, the bed linens not ironed out, looked like they were already used ( believe they wer not ). Bathroom cleanliness fair but facilities need update. No safety box in our room and the door not up to safety standards. We liked the staff in the reception and restaurant - friendly and informative. Breakfast and WiFi OK and once we had a buffet dinner which was good, too. They have nice Palestinian beer. Public parking place is next to the hotel ( extra charge 50ILS per night ) and it is not far to Damascus Gate bus station where you can take the bus to Betlehem. Local restaurants in the neighbourhood.
