“Great views a bit run down”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2012

I only stayed for one night and that was more than enough.
The hotel seems to be geared toward tour group travelers specifically Russian as the signs for Happy Hour and menus were written only in Russian (not English or Arabic). With that said the drinks were affordable, the staff was pleasant, and the rooms quite spacious but it was not up to my desired standards of cleanliness. The breakfast was horrible.

Nice hotel, mainly used for groups, rooms are large but needs a good renovation. Service is very good, food is good not much to choose from (for dinner you have 6 types of salads, potatoes, chicken, beef, from time to time fish) but fresh and good :). Distance to the Nativity Church - 45 min walking, shops/restaurants/drugstore near hotel;
Advice - ask a room with a view to the main street and not at the last floor - if rains u in deep water :)))

Room Tip: rooms are better at 10th floor with view to the main street.

Not so clean, problems with windows, hard to sleep (close to the street). Good thing is free WiFi in a lobby.

Nice hotel with superb amenities. Had a great view of the mountains and the old town. It was a relaxing experience in the birth place of Jesus. Situated right in the middle of the town we enjoyed each and every day of our stay. Milk Grotto, Old Town and Church is situated in walking distance, hence saving lot of time on travel. If you are a shopping freak of want to collect souveniers to tacke back home, lot of shopping malls. shops, etc., are situated around. The food in the hotel is noteworthy and will suit all taste buds. Overall a great value for money.

The hotel was alright for a large group tour, value for money. The buffet breakfast was quite nice actually, the staff are very helpful and over friendly. Many shops are nearby for clothes or foodstuff.

The localization of the hotel is the best factor of stay there. Nearby Jerusalem and the other tourist places in the Holy Land. Standard is not high, but it is clean. Breakfast and dinners was tasty. The prices was reasonable. Good place for sightseeing Israel and West Bank. The staff very nice and friendly.
Don't go there if you expect luxury stay. It could be treated like a 2,5 star hotel.
