this hotel is only several months old and already almost always fully booked. Located in Ein Carem, (15 min away from jerusalem) it felt like we were in a small town in Europe. Beautiful views driving there and also from the hotel.
We stayed here for only one night because it was the only day available. (There are only seven suites in the hotel) Since it was my husbands 30th birthday, i decided to surprise him by inviting 8 more friends to join us for dinner.
Chef Yaron made our experience unforgettable. He cooked for us privately (as he does for anyone that stays in the hotel) and the food was incredible - if you read my other reviews of restaurants you will notice that I am quite a restaurant connoisseur. All our friends loved the food and the meal and after looking at our suite(we stayed in Alber&Luis Suite)- wanted to return to the hotel. I would recommend coming here as a family as well because it would be really nice to have several rooms.
I also surprised my husband with a massage that they offered at the hotel and he said it was the best massage (we stayed at a spa hotel Yaarot Hacarmel for the next two nights).
Breakfast was also incredible- probably the best israeli breakfast we've had.
Whatever you do- do not miss the food at the hotel. It is one of their greatest assets.
Overall Service, design, rooms, food- all was top notch.
