My husband and I and our 21 year old son spent 2 nights at the Ibike hotel. Rooms were modest, but very comfortable and clean. Lovely outdoor patio to sit and enjoy your complementary coffee/tea cold drink. Breakfasts were delicious and relaxing. Avia and Menachem were wonderful hosts and extremely helpful in setting us up with mountain bikes/helmets and maps of the hiking and biking trails. We had an amazing day biking in the Mitzpe Ramon area. Great new single track along the ridge of the Crater and into it. Would have loved to stay longer and explore more of the region! A very unique and special place:) We would definately stay their again.

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet as the hotel is just on the outskirts of the city. Family suites are quite spac...

We had just fantastic time in Mitspe Ramon. Excelent accommodation, excellent food, warm hospitality, relax and fun with Aviva and Menachem. Great trip suggestion from them.
We actually felt like at home. ...which reminds to stress the excellent food they prepared for us.
We came as customers and felt leaving as friends.
Overall undoubtly one of the highlights of our 10 days trip in the promised land.

Note for Aviva/Menachem: once you will be in Prague (2nd attempt to see the old cemetery) DO let us know.

Room Tip: I am sure that any room will be a good one.

why we like IBIKE and we are going to come again and again?
Because Aviva and Menachem that gave us (and to the other guests) that we are the most important guests, because the perfect dinners and breakfast because the modest and cleanliness roomד, because the silent, because the desert, because our children like the the place, and finally because of their specialty in Bikes

Room Tip: Ask the owners

If you look for a unique place to stay in unique surroundings, this is the place for you.
Despite the unforgettable nature, the Ramon Crater and the desert, you will be stunned by the overwhelming hospitality of Aviva and Menachem. The two of them will also provide you with a wide variety of hints and suggestions for great hikes into the crater/bike-trips. The thrill for us was a Jeep-Tour into the crater. Last but not least: fantastic food!

We spent a wonderful time at Ibike. Everything was perfect. The hosts did everything for our well-being. (The breakfast was delicious, actually it was the best we had in Israel!!) Moreover we got very good hints for walking in the desert and of course Ibike is a perfect location for trekking in Negev.
All in all we really can recommend this hotel! :-)

What a treat!!! we came, 10 Israelis, for 3 days. Now, you know how hard it is to satisfy a Israeli, let alone 10 Israelis... And yet, we all loved it: the atmosphere, the kind hosts, the food, the directions given for biking and hiking. Aviva and Menachem are the kindest hosts you can dream of, the rooms are small and simple but very clean and comfortable after a day of biking, the food was delicious and the location is great. We will return, we will send friends, we will always remember the great vacation at IBike.

We a group of 10 friends enjoyed a great vacation , the breakfast, lunch and dinner were tasty and very good, the public area indoor and outdoor are very nice, the rooms are simple. Aviva and Menachem are doing the best to help the visitors to feel at home and to enjoy the stay. Machtesh Ramon is a perfect place for biking , walking and to go by jeep. We did all of it. We plan to come back next year!

Room Tip: there are 7 simple rooms and 3 family rooms which are better
