“Palestina for dummies”
Reviewed 25 May 2011

I didn't know exactly what to expect...
A family guesthouse... just outside of Ramallah, staying with a family...
but what else..?
Well, my friend and I had the most amazing time... staying with Rawda and her family felt even better then coming "home"... They told as stories of the daily life in the West Bank, made us great food... invited us around the table all together, like a real family... And apart from that, they showed us places like Budrus, where we met the people who started the Non Violent Protest actions... going on now for 5 years or more... and other places where the protests are still going on today...
It helped us to understand the people here, and made us understand that, even if the "conflict" is not in the news every day... the people here are confronted with it every day, and in every part of their life... but nevertheless, they have a great, positive spirit here ...

An amazing experience... I can recommend anyone... and well, nobody better then Rawda and her family to guide you around...
And don't forget: never let people scare you with stories about the "danger" of going to the West Bank... it's more then ok...

Thanks Rawda...

Can't wait to come back. If I'd stayed in Ramallah, would have missed out on a special treat. Really beautiful home, nice room, good company, and tasty food! Short ride from Ramallah by service taxi. The Khouriyas are such gracious hosts, it was a treat to share a visit in their home.

We had a wonderful stay at the house of Rawda and Issa. They and their children will give you a warm welcome whenever you choose to stay at their home in Jifna, Ramallah.
Issa showed us many places (historical and recent importance) when driving us around from Jericho to Nablus and many places in between.
Great were the conversations at their dinnertable together with ohter guests coming from all places around the world, being there for: study, leisure (like us), business etcetera. Rawda' Palestine breakfast and dinner are great.
Rawda and Issa, many thanks for your hospitality and we sure hope to see you again.

I recently had a great experience in Jifna where Rawda and Issa shared their 4 story home with with us. We had a week of business meetings that kept us going until after dark and Issa even offered to be a taxi, like a family member would when you need a lift.

The hospitality and service from breakfast (where they know the person who grew or produced most of it) to insights about the area to offering to help (I forgot a few things) to wheels into Ramallah. WOW - this family is the best.

Thanks for changing a business trip into an experience with new friends.

I have already recommended the B&B to colleagues the first arrives in a week.

GOOD ON YA! Scott

The Khouriyas treats you like a new member of the family. They are extremely gracious and helpful, whether it means giving you a ride, showing you the sights, cooking a late meal, or sharing Palestinian culture. A warm and memorable experience. Will stay there again!

Palestine as a tourist destination? Isn't it too dangerous? ....? Dangerous? Huh? As experienced travellers in the Middle East we know that this part of the world is really one of the safest and nicest places on Earth. Forget about the negative image spread by stupid newspapers and tv-stations. Palestine is one of the oldest tourist destinations in the world and it is waiting to be re-discovered! The Khouriya Family Guesthouse is definitely the place to stay. Its atmosphere of unforgettable hospitality, the delicious Palestinian meals, its central location just north of Ramallah, the clean, new house, and the amazing view on the valley in front of the guesthouse at sunset are just a few of its advantages which should be mentioned!
