Reader recommendation: Wonderful time at Dar Sitti Aziza in Bethlehem

Dar Sitti Aziza is a delightful inn in the style of an Ottoman-era merchant's home in Bethlehem

We had a wonderful time staying at Dar Sitti Aziza (House of My Grandmother Aziza) in Bethlehem for two nights. The inn, a heritage hotel in the style of an Ottoman-era merchant's home on the West Bank, has been renovated with modern amenities. The location is a stone's throw from the Church of the Nativity. When the weather is nice, breakfast is served on the patio under a pistachio tree. What made our stay extra-special was the hospitality of the manager, Nabil Rishmawi, the grandson of the namesake Aziza.
