We got there, a family of 5, in the evening and our rooms were not ready. The public area was closed off and we were quite disappointed. The manager seemed to be more worried about the other guests' comfort than ours. We were asked numerous times that our children should not walk on the stairs too loudly which they were... More

Hotel Ibike is now called Hotel Ibex. It is located about 2 kilometers outside of the town in a nondescript industrial secto,r around the corner from the artist warehouses. Aviva and her husband go above and beyond the call of duty when it comes to hospitality. The breakfast is plentiful, freshly made food. They'll feed you even if it isn't... More

During my three years stay in Israel I boarded several times in iBike hotel, most often with my guests. It was never a disappointment. If you look for gold plated taps, red carpets or staff all the time fawning around you, this is definitely not your choice. But if you want cosy environment, peaceful environment, genuine friendliness and the best... More

We were a group of 8 friends. The service is exceptional, exceeding my already high expectations at every corner. The food was delicious! Best of all, everything we needed for our bike trip was taken care for on site. Highly recommend!

I have been coming here for several years now to do some biking and relax. Both Menachem and Aviva make you feel at home. Amazing location, the accommodation is excellent and the desert is in front of the door. Its located on the legendary spice route and is steeped with rich history and legends. It is especially good for families... More

The proprietors Menachem and Aviva couldn't have been more welcoming. We arrived on the bus and the first thing they did was take us to the supermarket for supplies. They helped us plan our hike and dropped us off and picked us up at the trailhead - all with a smile. THE complimentary breakfast was amazing. We will definitely be... More
