The Guest House

Book online on booking.com >>

Welcome to our guest house! Talitha's Educational Centre is situated on the highest elevation in the area of Bethlehem. Our guest house is the ideal starting point for travelers who want to visit Palestine and experience firsthand the friendliness of its people. After your touristic explorations of Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Jericho, or the Dead Sea, our ten-hectare large property covered with woods provides for excellent recreational opportunities.

The unusual combination of a school and a guest house on one property gives you an excellent opportunity to get a glimpse into Palestinian school life. Take your chance and visit one or a few school classes or talk to our tri-lingual students. Our modern and well-equipped conference rooms are available for use, as are the School Library, the church, and our sports complex.

Relax and enjoy the ambiance of our guest house – be it in our cozy, light-filled dining hall, in the cool shade of a tree in our leafy patio, or on one of our balconies. We do our best to make your stay as comfortable as possible and are more than happy to spoil you with refreshments and our home-made Arabic and international cuisine. If you want to visit us as a day guest, please register with us.

The guesthouse has been renovated in 2013/14.

How to reach Talitha Kumi may differ according to the current political situation. Please contact us by phone or email beforehand, if you are unsure about how to reach us.

At the moment, there are the following possibilities:

  • By taxi from Jerusalem (there are plenty of taxis available just outside the old town). The driver should at best be Palestinian but also Jewish drivers can take you here. Via the tunnel street (Street 60), you can go directly to the entrance of our complex. If you rent a car, you can reach Talitha Kumi the same way.
  • By Bus no 21. Take bus no. 21 in front of the Damascus Gate. Tell the driver to stop at Talitha Kumi.
  • By bus no. 124. Take bus no. 124 in front of the Damascus Gate. From the Bethlehem Checkpoint at Rahel's grave, take an Arabic taxi to Talitha Kumi.
  • We have observed that cars with tourists returning from Talitha Kumi to Jerusalem are increasingly led via the Bethlehem Checkpoint near Rahel's grave. Please plan for extra waiting time.
