Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The ‘Herodion Guesthouse’ in Bethlehem is situated in Al-Attan Street to the south-east of Manger Square. The building is a modern construction that overlooks both Bethlehem and the Muslim town of Bayt Sahur. Very important in Bethlehem is the distance one’s accommodation is from the main pilgrimage sites like the Church of the Nativity, the Chapel of St. Catherine and the Milk Grotto. In this regard the Herodion Guesthouse lies within walking distance; however, I caution that it takes about 10 to 15 minutes at a steady pace to reach Manger Square. If you are relatively fit, or if one wants to stroll casually, then the location is perfect, and we managed well. If you are elderly or physically impaired in some way, then perhaps not. However, a taxi could transport you to your destination within minutes. When we arrived in a hired car, we were met at the entrance and shown to the parking on the lower floor of the building. Entering and exiting the parking is confined and tricky, but if you can navigate the streets of Bethlehem you should manage. We were then escorted and helped with our luggage to our room and most graciously provided with coffee (which is always welcome when travelling). The building has an efficient lift and we had no problem reaching our floor. The passageway was not lit and we had difficulty unlocking our door as a consequence. The room was surprisingly well equipped, was spotlessly clean and had facilities that many guesthouses in Israel and Palestine do not have, namely a small refrigerator in the kitchenette, equipped with a kettle and tea and coffee. You will not believe how important this is to a pilgrim or tourist, especially late at night and early in the morning. Our beds were comfortable and the bedding was more than adequate. Our suite had a small balcony which we appreciated. The bathroom was modern and the shower produced ample hot water. The Wifi provided was more than adequate for our needs. I must state that you can also go up to the top floor of the building at any time where one can enjoy the expansive views and sip on some gratis coffee. Note that like in many locations in Palestine and in Israel, empty allotments and tatty spaces abound where one will see discarded sofas and building material that blight the view. Regardless, one is present to experience Bethlehem in its entirety - beauty spots and warts. The Guesthouse does not provide food, but you can ‘phone in to a local eatery and have it delivered or simply prepare your own in the kitchen located on the top floor. We made use of the local restaurants near Manger Square, but also brought food back where we prepared it in the kitchen. The owner and his son who speak English were very helpful and friendly and generously provided us with pastries in the morning. Yum! Thanks George senior and junior. The assistant that was present on two days did not have a good grasp of English which made for tricky communication and his mannerisms were at the least bizarre. At one point we feared we had offended him, but this might have been cultural. In conclusion – the ‘Herodion Guesthouse’ provided good value for money and we would certainly stay here should we make a return trip to Bethlehem.

No reception at hotel. I kept in touch with what's app and staff was waiting when I arrived at the hotel. Room was clean and wifi worked well. View from the room was beautiful and also view from the roof top was amazing. They offer free water, coffee at the roof top always, and they have a bar in the night there. It's not far from the hotel to the church of Nativity, however some slopes. Small supermarket is in front of the hotel. A bit large one is 200m with rapid slope. Very cozy hotel. I recommend it.

We spent two nights at the Herodion Guesthouse. It is family run and the hosts are so friendly and helpful. Make sure to add on the breakfast, it is a bargain and with more food than you can possibly eat. Plus you'll get to try local foods and the view is magnificent. Rooms are simple but adequate. The automatic blinds really block the light and most of the city noise. The room was clean and offers a fridge and a huge balcony. When we had a need, they fixed it right away. It's a bit of a walk up/down the hill to market square. That's the only drawback.

Wonderful welcome by Elias and his family! The guesthouse is central to everything and most comfortable! My wife and I felt right at home! Any questions we had about the area were answered. Elias and his family work hard and accommodated us. We were truly happy!!

Amazing location, very close to the Nativity church, the room was big, spacious balcony and wonderful view. Some little things were missing, like pans or plates, but as soon as i told Elias he immediately provided them. I stayed there for more than a month, and i totally recommend it.

The family that runs the guesthouse is SO fun and SO kind! Only my two friends were staying at the property but the other four of us were invited to the beautiful rooftop. We ended up dancing and eating and talking all evening with people from all over the world. And get this. When we finished Elias, the owner, drove us back to Jerusalem in his personal car. Amazing! I'll be coming back!

I have stayed in Herodion Guesthouse for over a month, and I had a great experience. This place in equally good to stay for short and long term. Both Elias - the owner - and his family were really helpful to me with whatever I needed, and they were always at hand, contactable on What's app. The apartments itself was of excellent value, with a huge room, kitchenette and bathroom. It has a AC - which is some months in Palestnie is impossible to live with. It has a very quick internet connection. It has a balcony with great view. It's literally 5 min from the center of town. It's practically like having your own flat. The building has an amazing rooftop with 360 view. It's good for BBQ, or evening dinner / drinks with friends. Herodion Guesthouse can definitely compete with any other hotels in this price range.

I stayed at the Herodion Guesthouse during my second visit to Bethlehem. It is affordable, with a big, comfy room, fan and hot shower provided. There's even a kitchenette with a sink, cutlery and fridge with bottled water provided. Air conditioning has not yet been installed as the guesthouse is still very new. It doesn't bother me as the fan is enough for some good healthy ventilation. The room itself is relatively quiet and provides a lot of privacy for the weary traveller. I was jet lagged coming in from South America and couldn't sleep the whole night but had the best nap the next afternoon despite the sweltering summer heat outside - thanks to the powerful fan. There is also a balcony in my room which offers a great view of the city. The premises in and around the guesthouse are safe. In fact, it makes for a nice walk through the quaint streets of Bethlehem in the day. The guesthouse is close to the center and a nice 7 min walk to the olive wood factory. There isn't a front desk but Elias and his family who run the guesthouse are very responsive to queries and hospitable to the guests. They are contactable via Whatsapp, which brings me to another point - a fully functioning Wi-Fi connection. I thoroughly enjoyed my time here interacting with the family when I see them and having my own rest time in the room when required. I highly recommend travellers to stay here, especially if you have a good few days in Bethlehem - due to its affordability and facilities provided.

I only have the highest recommendation for this place. I stayed for a whole month, and it was fantastic. The flat was very big and comfortable, with the most stunning view over the West Bank. The internet connection was excellent, and so was the washing machine, and all other facilities. The location was great: It is just a 10-minute walk away from the Nativity Church and the beautiful old town of Bethlehem. But the best part was the wonderful host family, the charming neighbors, and shop owners, who made my stay truly wonderful. Thank you!!

This is one of the best places to stay in Bethlehem -- long or short term. The location is just a five minute walk to the Church of the Nativity, market and main bus station, as well as some of the best cafes in Beit Sahour and Bethlehem. Each room is comfortable, clean and modern. The building is beautiful, secure, fire and earthquake safe. Most rooms have incredible views and there is a common roof top area with swings and place for picnics and BBQ. The staff are very kind and some of the most professional people I've met. Whatever I needed -- really anything -- they provided me with it within 24 hours. As the building is brand new, when I came to stay in June there was no air conditioner yet. However, after asking for air conditioning they came to put a unit in my room -- and then the entire building! -- within less than 24 hours! I just loved my time here and they have made sure to keep me happy and comfortable in every way possible.
