This hotel in Bethlehem was the closest to good international standards of the 3 in which we stayed during our visit to Israel and Palestine. I understand that the interior is being revamped and I must confess that it appeared in good order though I did not explore beyond the first floor.
Our allocated room was of a reasonable size with comfortable beds and both it and the bathroom were very clean.
The evening meal was again buffet-style in a large dining room. Many of the tables were marked as reserved for parties from all quarters of the globe, but we were in early and got first dibs at the food on offer. It was prepared to a very good standard, and as usual with buffets, you could go back repeatedly until you burst. No-one actually went that far while we were there.
So why only four stars? Well, the waiters were obviously preoccupied and not very communicative. They dished out watermelon desert on a 'take it or leave it" basis. Well, everyone is entitled to an off-lay I guess, and maybe they will be better next time.
Breakfast was pretty good too, though our relatively early start meant that I only saw it through bleary eyes. Check-out was fast and efficient.
We would stay there again, hopefully for a little longer than our one night fleeting visit.
