Alexander Hotel is where Europe meets the Mideast. The owner, Joseph is American citizens that followed his dream in retirement and went back to his place of birth, Bethlehem, and build his own hotel. Do not we all dream one day to go back to the old country and do something good? He also par Italian. The hotel design, service, food, and the warm welcoming environment are much like hotels in France or Italy with a nice touch of middle eastern flavor.
There is nothing better than coming back from long day of touring and feel the warmth of Joseph or his son Joey or any staff member. You feel like went back to home sweet home to relax and get recharged for the next day of touring, or just relaxing. I stayed on seven stars hotels, paid as much as $1,200 a night. Of course there it was fine in very accept for the down home feeling. I had the feeling that I was staying in a museum not a nice comfy hotel room.
Make yourself a promise; visit the Holy Land, Jerusalem and Bethlehem. It will be the trip of a live time, not like any other place you have been to. And for sure stay in Alexander Hotel in Bethlehem. Once you make your reservation, call Joseph or Joey direct or email, ask them anything you need to know in advance of your travel. Let them know when you will arrive, for sure, like they did with me, they will be waiting for you with open arms and a cup of coffie or hot tea. Enjoy.
