Even though the hotel is on a moshav about a dozen miles outside Jerusalem (so you need a car to get around from hotel), I think it's one of the best kept secrets in Israel. The hotel is in the hills with a great view of the coastal plain below. The rooms are large and comfortable, the hotel is well-maintained, and the full Israeli breakfast buffet is unbeatable. If you've never had an Israeli breakfast before, you don't know what you're missing. All this for $100 per night.
The hotel is right off the main Tel Aviv- Jerusalem highway, so it's convenient to both cities, and to the airport (about 30 minutes away). It's also close to the Israeli Arab village of Abu Ghosh, with great restaurants for dinner. There is plenty of shopping close by in the town of Mevaseret Tsion.
On weekends (Friday/Saturday) the place fills up with people from Jerusalem looking for a getaway, but weekdays it's pretty quiet, mostly with business guests.
The front desk staff generally speak very good English if you don't speak Hebrew. This is a solid 3 star hotel that I've stayed in twice now, and I've been very satisfied with it. If you're willing to rent a car and risk the insanity of Israeli drivers, this is the place to stay near Jerusalsm.
