My husband and I stayed for 3 nights in this place. First of all it is quite difficult to find. Very narrow street, which makes parking difficult. We received a nice and clean suite but no TV about which we were not notified before. Breakfast OK, nothing special. Service is nice. Small swimming pool is a real asset, especially if... More

Very pleasant and helpful Scandinavians run this small guest house. It is outside Jerusalem so a car is essential. We paid off-season prices which were reasonable for Jerusalem. The whole place is very attractive and well kept. Our bedroom was very pretty but had twin beds, one of which wasn't so comfortable. The room had a small fridge with everything... More

Not too far from Jerusalem (you need a car!), you'll find this nice and different Zimmer run by people from Finland which spend a 3 month period in Israel (so part of the reviews about the people that run the place may not be so relevant). We were attended by a nice woman who showed the place around and told... More

Thank you for your review on our small place in the Judean Mountains! Through our hostel we want to bring a taste of Scandinavia to Israel, so that the people staying there can feel themselves warmly welcome, and experience the hospitality. We are aware of the mentioned renovation needs and we are currently working on them. We appreciate your feedback... More

Friendly owners greeted me and showed me to a delightful room with ensuite. The location is ideal for a stay in the Jerusalem area. Managed by Scandinavians with great attention to detail. Lovely pool and gardens with a bbq (non kosher meals provided)

I have been many times in Rose of Castel. The place is run by a group of Finnish people. It is located in a lovely area (Mevaseret Zion) very close to Jerusalem, either by car or by the bus (the bus stop is 3 min walk from the residence) which will leave you in the center (close to the Central...

At USD 80 a night for two weeknights before Passover, my fiancée and I were really pleased with the Rose of Castel Guesthouse. The inn-keeper, Helena, was a Finnish woman, who works as a nurse in Finland but was here on a rotation meant to preserve and operate the guesthouse. We booked directly with her through email. She speaks perfect... More
