This is a great place to stay when visiting the West Bank/Palestine (depending on your politics). The family provides more than a room for your visit. They are anxious to help visitors with suggestions and Issa can be hired as a tour guide.
The town is small and the house is a walk up a steep hill, but on our arrival Issa surprised us by meeting us at the shared taxi stand. Inexpensive shared taxi's regularly run to Remallah. We took the taxi to Remallah and where we took day trips to Bethlehem and Jericho.
The house itself is very nice and clean. Breakfast is a nice selection of traditional foods. Depending on the season, you might get to enjoy some of the fresh fruit from the trees around the house. While we were there, we enjoyed the grapes right off the vine. We stayed in a room with a private entry that could sleep three or four people. It has a shower and kitchen facilities. Other rooms in the house allow groups to take advantage of the R&B.
This was my first visit to the west Bank and staying there was a great decision.
