Talitha Kumi Guesthouse, in Beit Jala, is a welcoming place, wholehearted hospitality, full service and responding to every request immediately with a warm attitude, always with a smile. The hotel manager and all the staff, are exceptionally nice. The food is varied and delicious, the rooms are clean and spacious, the furniture is new. In the hotel area there is an orchard, a grove, an ecological garden ... everything expands the heart. I highly recommend this place to tourists, peace activists and anyone who wants to rest and enjoy this place that "humanly connecting" between Israelis and Palestinians.

Talitha Kumi guesthouse is a wonderful, well kept place near Bethlehem, the service and room standard were so much higher than our guesthouses and hotels in Jerusalem , and the price was reasonable. The interior is tasteful, practical and very clean. The staff is very friendly and helpful, this is a peaceful island in this conflicted area. Very good restaurants nearby, an interesting place to relax.

This house is an oasis in Beit Jala / Bethlehem. Surrounded by walls the guesthouse belongs to the large campus of Talitha Kumi School that is reknowned and has an old tradition. The rooms are perfectly clean with excellent amenities. We loved to be cared for by helpful and friendly staff and enjoyed the excellent breakfast and fresh evening meal. We highly recommend the house for your expeditions of Jerusalem etc.
