“An upscale hotel in Bethlehem”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

I stayed with a church tour group at this hotel. It is almost brand-new. The free wifi was great, and the beds were quite comfortable. The bathrooms are very updated with nice fixtures and high-quality towels. The meals were quite good for groups (buffet with lots of fresh and culturally-appropriate options... Korean rice porridge for a Korean group, American breakfast options for American groups).

The view is fantastic. The rooms look over the edge of a hill to see both occupied Palestine and also parts of Israel. There is plenty of sun, but the heavy curtains are effectively light-blocking. The hotel staff are really nice and helpful.

There is a very large lobby with a good bar, great for hanging out in the evenings. There is also a street-side patio. The hotel is one block from Manger Square and the Church of the Nativity. Walking distance to tons of shops.

The hotel bar sells bottled water, and there are always vendors right outside the door selling large bottles of water for $1 or $2. I would definitely stay here again.

Enjoyed My Stay Here..It was just across the street from Manger Square..I felt safe all hours of the day and night. They were kind and helpful in arranging transportation back to Israel for me.. . Loved Bethlehem ..I ventured further out and traveled the local areas and markets.. well worth the discovery. !! Hotel had Breakfast and Dinner available and the staff was incredibly kind.

Room Tip: My next visit I would like to stay in a Bed and Breakfast..with locals my preference..

We recently returned to Israel and were lucky to stay at this wonderful hotel in Bethlehem . The service and hospitality was the best we received in our two weeks in Israel. Do yourself a favour and make the effort to stay a few nights on Bethlehem manager hotel you will not be disappointed.
The rooms are spacious and breakfast was varied. Customer service was exceptional. The indoor rooftop pool was large with plenty of seating. Car parking is offered underneath and wifi is fast. Best of all though is location , the hotel is positioned at the corner of manager square within a stones throw of the nativity church. Money for value is by far the best we received in Israel.

I am a group leader who had my mid-February 2014 group stay at MSH. There were issues of maintenance, cleanliness, and service; big enough for me to ask my agent NOT to go back there. However, MSH asked for another chance. They have more than redeemed themselves. Every issue from February was resolved. Mr. Luay Tawill, one of the owners, went out of his way to be friendly and helpful, as did all his staff. My next two groups in March 2014 were very happy with the rooms, food, and service at MSH. The location is also a real plus - a stone's throw away from Manger Square, the Church of the Nativity, and 'downtown' Bethlehem. My recent experience at MSH was the closest thing to 'classic Arab hospitality' that I have seen in a while. Keep up the good work.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the valley side of the hotel rather than the street -- it is quieter. Though the s...

I have stayed in the hotel with my family a week ago where we have enjoyed our time to the max. The staff at the hotel were so friendly and helpful, and the facilities of the hotel show the professionalism of the latter. The food is delicious and has lots of varieties each day.
It was really worth staying there specially with its special location. We are looking forward to staying again at this hotel specially when the pool is finalized.
Keep up the good work
