The Community Hotel Bethlehem offers individual apartments to visitors who want to live within a local neighborhood, discover Bethlehem off the beaten track, and get to know the Palestinian culture and traditions. Its apartments are located in traditional/historical buildings spread throughout unique locations within the Historic Center of Bethlehem.
The Community Hotel Bethlehem aims at preserving and rehabilitating these buildings, which otherwise would have been abandoned. In particular, great efforts are made to support a high level of sustainability, the continuous involvement of the local population in order to foster their engagement in the preservation of Bethlehem’s historic authenticity as well as direct encounters with foreign visitors.
In order to achieve its goals, the apartments still belong to their original owners, who now share in the provision of touristic services.
Besides the social aspects, the Community Hotel Bethlehem strives to reduce the impact of tourism on the environment and to call attention to environmental topics among tourists and locals alike.
