Palestine Guesthouse recently received this information from the proprietors of a new B&B in Beit Hanina, a Palestinian area of Jerusalem. We’ll be checking it out for the website and for the Bradt Guide to Palestine as soon as we can:
The Front Line is located in the north Jerusalem neighborhood of Beit Hanina, at walking distance from public transportation to both Old City of Jerusalem and Ramallah in the West Bank. This is a 2-bedroom suite with private parking, a spacious living room and fully equipped kitchen. The suite is sunny and decorated with wooden frames.
The neighborhood is calm and clean. The house is 2 minutes walking distance to public transportation, and 10 minutes walking distance to grocery & shopping area of Beit Hanina.
You will be the guests of a retired couple from East Jerusalem. They speak Arabic, English and Hebrew and are assisted by their sons who speak French and Turkish.
The fridge will be stocked with everything you need to make breakfast at your own leisure, including milk, organic eggs, cereal, jam, etc. Other meals can also be arranged.
An extremely popular family-run guesthouse in the picturesque village of Jifna, near Ramallah and very close to Bir Zeit. Includes a self-contained apartment with breakfast and wifi included, or they can accommodate larger groups in other parts of the house. On top of B&B they can provide full or half board meals and advise on local transport, things to do and see and other arrangements. Book early!

Based in an educational centre for children with disabilities and run by the Moravian Church, Star Mountain offers a very different experience from the rather same-y mid-range tourist hotels or expensive 5* establishments of Ramallah city centre. It offers dormitory or chalet accommodation (with breakfasts and use of a shared kitchen) in a beautiful woodland setting, about 10 minutes by car/taxi from Ramallah. It also has wifi for guests during the day.
