We just went for 2 expresso coffees and one tea, which were served in disposable cups. We were charged 100 shekels (26 US$). These people are scaring tourist away more than the whole Israel-Palestinian conflict!

This is a hard property to rate as it is really a pilgrimage hostel rather than a normal hotel. Rooms were pretty Spartan with very basic furniture, quite narrow and very simply painted. Bathroom was small with no toiletries beyond liquid soap dispensors. Woken at 4am every morning with the call to prayer and in the dark, the strong lighting...

Our group of 5 stayed for five nights at Casa Nova the first week of March 2016. The accommodations were perfect for us. The rooms with ensuite bath were immaculately clean and we were given fresh towels each day. Free wifi was reliable. Breakfast and dinner were included and were always fresh and delicious. We were in the Holy Land...

You can walk to the Basilica of the Nativity from here. We love this place, it is so convenient. The room was clean and warm. The food they provided us are great. The only thing we did not like was about 4:30 AM and 4:30PM there were several speakers of Muslim people praying very loud toward our rooms.

We stayed at the guest house with a friend and encountered very friendly staff, very basic but clean and pleasant rooms, and a prime location. We considered this to be of good value and would stay there again. Breakfast was rather basic, but its what was to be expected. Only minus in my mind is for the thin walls etc...

This review is of the restaurant only as we did not stay at Casa Nova hotel. After more than a week of travel, the restaurant gave us the best plate of pasta we have had outside of Italy. There is a generously sized outdoor patio seating area that we were able to enjoy at lunch on a sunny December Christmas...

This is where the Pope stays when he visits Bethlehem! Casa Nova is a Franciscan guest house run for pilgrims. The rooms are simple, but adequate, with en-suite toilet and shower facilities (a double shower, in fact). Amenities include a small wardrobe with shelves, a table with a small drawer. (Just mind the corners on the bed, though, when walking...
