The Mövenpick Hotel Ramallah is a five-star hotel located in Ramallah.[1] It cost $42.5m (£26.4m) to build.[1]

The hotel was first conceived in the 1990s but was delayed due to the political unrest that followed.[2] Construction began in 2000 and was completed 10 years later in November 2010.[1] Progress was hindered by difficulties and delays relating to the importing of goods into the territory from Israel.[2]

It contains five restaurants and bars, 171 rooms including two presidential suites, a range of luxury banqueting and conference facilities, a heated outdoor pool, a gym.[1]

The hotel is aimed principally at a business clientele, and it also hopes to attract the growing number of tourists and pilgrims visiting the West Bank.[1]
