I spent one night at this gem hidden in the lovely hills surrounding Jerusalem and I strongly recommend.
We took a taxi from the centre of Jerusalem and drove all the way to the hotel, found ourselves in an oasis of peace and tranquillity. The hotel features a lovely open plan kitchen / restaurant / lobby and is decorated to the detail. We were upgraded to a suite free of charge, with a lovely vanity set and newly decorated bathroom. The hotel features a nice patio with Jasmin trees and roses, and a lovely terrace with spectacular view where you can sip a glass of wine.
Loved the staff who was so careful and nice with us. As we visited on Independence day, all restaurants were closed; nevertheless we were nvited to buy groceries and cook with the hotel staff, which turned out to be a lovely and original experience. As an evening gift, we were given some raw home made chocolate, which was just delicious.
Perfect for couples but also for solo travelling and friends.
