Bethlehem is not the richest of cities due to it's current situation, but the hospitality at the Sancta Maria was warm (very, until we got the airconditioning to turn on!) and welcoming. Food was simpler than in some less restricted areas, but tasty and varied. Easy access to the historical sights of Bethlehem.
The hotel is comfy, the food is not the best out there, I think they can do better. The rooms are not very large but can host two people comfortably. It's affordable for any traveller not interested in comfort but to experience Bethlehem and Jerusalem.
I was here several times and had friends staying here. The restaurant is good and the location is close to historical sights and shopping. It is somewhat new and is Christian owned. Parking is Ok but you may walk a little.
We stayed in this hotel as a group for three nights. We enjoyed the buffet style breakfast and diner. The internet connection was not very strong and just to send mails, we had to go to the lobby. I found very practical for travellers that there was a weight scale to check how heavy luggage was.
The hotel was perfect! The view was excellent! Cleanliness was at a very high level. The sheets smell great - like a parfume. The breakfast is very rich - so much kinds of things to eat. The staff was very kind to us.
I stayed in this hotel as part of a tour for 3 nights. The reception was good, the rooms were cleaned and big with slightly outdated furniture but overall it was comfortable.The food in the restaurant was very good , i really enjoyed breakfasts and dinners with many choices mainly local and Arabic. Overall positive experience.
My taxi driver from Jerusalem to Bethlehem is originally from Jerusalem and knows the two areas very well: Jerusalem and Bethlehem! I just drove by it on my way to the Sheperd's Field but, thought to write a review because it seems like a good location and nice hotel, at least from the outside, I didn't get to stay... If I had known about it, might have stayed at least one or two days in Bethlehem! It is walking distance from the Sheperd's Field and looked nice!
We stayed as a group of 34 here for 3 days in May 2016.Some rooms are ok in size but many rooms are very small and no space to move around.Food was not with many spreads and limited dishes only.This may not alwys satisify your taste buds and sugget to carry your own pickles and dhall or garlic powder to mix with semi boiled rice which they serve.
The reception is apparently luxurious but the rooms and bathrooms are very modest, with old and worn-out furniture, the walls were dirty and the room was small. Also the AC was loud and not very efficient.
Very pleasant stay at this property. Rooms were clean and spacious, nothing luxurious but well-appointed. Balconies were small but view of the hills amazing. Best feature was the restaurant - with very affordable dinners and excellent food. Kudos to Chef Ahmad in the hotel restaurant - excellent meals on the buffet with really good service.
