Jacir Palace Hotel – Bethlehem is the largest hotel in Bethlehem in the central West Bank. The building’s original design was based on typical Palestinian architecture and the characteristics of an arab household. Jacir Palace has three floors, each spanning 800 square meters. The newly-built hotel added an outdoor swimming pool, fit health spa, four meeting rooms, 250 available rooms and six food and beverage outlets including restaurants and bars.
Jacir Palace was built in 1910 by local craftsmen on commission of the former mayor of Bethlehem, also a merchant, Suleimen Jacir who intended that he and his five brothers families would live in the house together, so they did for a time. In the 1950s it was a private school called al-Ummah, later the house became a public boys school and at a still later stage was transformed into a public girls school.
In 1998, PTIC (Palestinian Tourism Investment Company) Owned Jacir Palace; they refurnished and renovated it soon after creating Jacir Palace Hotel Bethlehem it was completed in 2000 as a 5 star hotel.
