We had an incredibly remarkable experience during our stay at Talitha Kumi guest house. The beautiful surroundings and the invigorating atmosphere allowed us to truly appreciate nature. Additionally, the accommodations were pristine, exceptionally cozy, and the staff members were truly outstanding. They went above and beyond to ensure our stay was delightful. I enthusiastically suggest this guest house to anyone planning a visit to Bethlehem. We look forward to returning to Talitha Kumi guest house in the future.

This was our first time staying in Talitha Kumi guest house. We visit Beit Jala frequently, but this was our first experience at this hotel. It did feel like we were guests in someone's home. The manager Farid is fluent in many languages so that was helpful since my husband, and I speak Arabic and English, I also overheard him speaking German and Russian, quite impressive. The rooms were clean, very comfortable, and the staff was amazing. They went above and beyond to help make our stay enjoyable. I highly recommend this hotel for anyone visiting Palestine. We look forward to our next visit to Talitha Kumi.

We spent 7 nights at the Guest house and enjoy every one of them, location was safe, and convenient to discover both the West Bank and the Israeli side, room was clean, beds were comfortable, and area was quiet, with lovely grounds to enjoy the fresh clean Beit Jala Mountain air in. The daily breakfast was healthy and filling, setting us up on our daily adventures. The manager Farid was welcoming and attentive to guests' needs, inviting us to chat, enjoy an espresso and help with tips on activities and spots to visit around the area. Staff were pleasant, and welcoming, rooms were clean and stocked with all amenities daily. We would visit again for sure.

In the last weekend we hosted a 3 day, 2 night conference in Talitha Kumi with 120 participants. I will start with the "small" and continue with the big (the staff). We arrived to the Guest House and everything was ABSOLUTLEY spotless! The dining room, the court yard, the ROOMS, everything was so well kept and clean - it was hard not to notice and be impressed. The food is delecious and satisfing, with many options to choose from, great tasting and beautifully presented. The venue itself is beautiful - a combination of a historic building, with amazing nature, great views and modern looking rooms. Finally, the staff. All of them presented us with THE BEST level of service I have ever experienced. Everything was done to perfection and always with such a huge smile on their face - always happy to help. I want to point out in particular the manager of the guest house, Farid. Farid was one of the most tentative people I have met - willing to help out our every need (and we had a lot). Again, everything done with such willingness and a great smile. 10/10 recommened this place for anyone visiting the West Bank and Bethlahem area. Thank you Talitha!!

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.
