“Very old for 2014”
Reviewed July 12, 2014 via mobile

We stayed for 2 nights here, part of our Israel tour. The staff didn't speak english and were very distracted. The food we got was a buffet with the same food for lunch and dinner. And warmed up for the next day. Wi-fi didn't work. But they had 2 old and rusty massage chairs in the lobby that were very cheap. 3$ for 10 minutes. The room was pretty big and clean. They had a bar where you could buy cheap beer and smoke shisha pipe. Overall: very old facilities and building. No entertainment at all (tv, shopping)

Stayed December 2013

Recently came with a group of 50 US and Chinese students, and this hotel definitely met and exceeded our expectations. Our travel agency booked us in this hotel for 3 nights at the start of our tour of Israel, and we weren’t sure what to expect since Bethlehem is in the West Bank, but we were quite pleasantly surprised. I’m sure this may vary depending on tensions in the region, but when we visited we felt completely safe, and crossing into and out of the west bank several times a day was a simple process (our tour bus barely even had to stop).

I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a low-cost place to sleep while visiting Jerusalem, the Dead Sea, etc. during the day. Bethlehem’s major attraction, the Church of Nativity, is also a simple and direct 15-20 minute walk from the hotel. The walk itself wasn’t exactly “comfortable” but it did seem safe and passes by many tourist-heavy areas.
Breakfast was enjoyable and varied, as was dinner. The staff was quite attentive and helpful, both at meals and at all hours at the front desk.

Aside from the Church of Nativity, there isn’t too much to do in Bethlehem, especially at night, but this hotel was clean, the beds were comfortable, and check-in and check-out were simple (even for our group of 50 people), so it served our purposes perfectly!

The only problem was a serious inconstancy in wi-fi availability from room to room and day to day, but free wi-fi is free wi-fi.

Room Tip: Rooms near the center of each floor seemed to have better wi-fi coverage

I stayed there for a total of 5 nights while on a tour round Israel. The staff was very friendly and the food was amazing! The rooms weren't super clean ie sticky floor and hairs on the floor but the sheets were clean and we had fresh towels daily. 10 minutes walk from the Church of Nativity near which there was a market on Saturday morning. Also, 50m away from a supermarket selling everything! Great hotel! Really enjoyed our stay there.
