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.

This hotel seems to be the choice for groups of pilgrims visiting the Holy Land and this is all the hotel seem to care about. I stayed with my family and apart from one waiter all other staff are unprofessional and have a couldn't care less attitude.

Recently returned from leading a pilgrim group which included five nights at the Sancta Maria Hotel. Service was excellent, nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Accommodation and food very good for this grade of hotel although as a vegetarian, the occasional non-meat meal would have been welcome. Would recommend a more eco-friendly approach to changing towels everyday i.e.... More

I noticed that they were under staffed; where only one person manning the front desk when they knew that 70+ persons were coming. Two elderly porters were there to carry the luggage for 3... More
