My girlfriend an I took a vacation to amirim and we've decided to stay at the ohn-bar gesthouse, and it was a romantic vacation we will never forget! The room was amazing and the view to the sea of gallilee was spectacular!

Room Tip: We stayed in Bat-Harim cabin, if you have an option, take it!

Beautiful place in the North of the country for a healthy and enchanting vacation.
Full service studios in a quite moshav, with jacuzzi, 2 huge Tv screens you won't use..., all studios with a beautiful view on the Kineret aka the Sea of Galilee.
Sweet service, I say sweet as the personnel is so sweet and kind!
Central to drive around and discover places like Arbel Cliff, Mount Meron, Saved, and many breathtaking places.
Hotly recommended.

We arrived about 9pm and the owners waited in the office for us. The room was pleasant, nicely designed and with many amenities. Some fruit and a handwritten note were a nice touch. We found the linens and towels to be attractive and clean with a pleasant refreshing smell and a nicely stocked kitchen with utensils, coffee sugar etc. We were a bit overwhelmed by the technology and did not use all of it especially since we were there to tour.
The view was very nice if a bit restrictive because of plants and the outside furniture will definitely need a wipeoff.
In all, it was a pleasant and enjoyable stay which met our expectations. I cannot see how people complain about breakfast etc as all these things are spelled out in advance. It is not a hotel, so don't expect breakfast, a bellboy etc. These are cabins and nice ones at that providing good value!

Perhaps our expecations were to high about staying at this BNB as we were most shocked and unimpressed with our experience.
The owner was so rude ( perhaps cultural) on our arrival, we could hardly beleive she was the owner. she had no patience for us at all.
The supposed panoramic view was far from that. if you stand at the balastrade you can see the view, its far from panaramic.
They were renovating one of the rooms from very early in the morning so was very noisy and far from relaxing.
The bed was a foam matress ( most uncomfortable). They have lots of fancy things like surround sound and large t.v's and steam shower however most of these things are not needed it would have been better for them to put money into better mattress, less plastic furniture, soft and cleaner towels, and higher chairs on the balcony that allow you to see the view not the pot plants infront of the balcony.
Breakfast is not included which in 3 weeks travelling in Israel was the only place we had this experience.
there are so many places to choose from in Israel that are magical, and we had hoped this was one of them.
i must add that the rooms were well designed.

Dear Lisa,

We are sorry to hear that you were not completely satisfied with your visit.
We take note of your feedback and will try to improve our facilities and service accordingly. It came as a surprise to us, since no mention of your preferences was made before or during your stay. Please communicate with us immediately next time, as what needs to be fixed can usually be dealt with right away.

All of our units are equipped with high quality orthopedic SK mattresses which our guests usually inquire about in order to buy them for their homes.. The owners' back problems from excessive military service have improved. significantly. However, tastes differ. We would have been happy to accommodate you with a softer layer had it been requested.

No construction is allowed in Amirim during weekends, holidays and peak summer season. We have no renovations on site this year. It was probably noise from a neighbor, which we have no control over. However this is unusual and we would have called them and asked for consideration had you informed us that you were bothered by it.

The suite you occupied is one of our most desired units, as it has all the features of our most luxurious suites, though it is not as huge and we charge a lower rate. Have you brought your tourist visa papers along with your passports we would also deduct the taxes (currently 18%), providing an even better deal.

We always advise our guests to take a good look at our website to see the room they are booking, as each unit offers something different.. Our website provides many photos of each room, and a detailed floor plan. This helps to avoid disappointment. While some units have a view of 180 degrees, the view of others may be limited by lush fruit trees or grapevines. Some units are bigger, and some are smaller. Some guests prefer a more private and shaded yard, and others desire a more open view. And had you taken a closer look when booking you would have seen that no breakfasts are included in the price. This enables our guests to choose one of the many breakfast options that are available in Amirim. Some deliver to your room and all are at reasonable rates.

We try our best to communicate and learn about your preferences. Perhaps if you had booked directly with us (rather than through a 3rd agent) our communication and understanding would have been clearer..

Hoping to serve you again in the near future,

Ohn-Bar Guesthouse in Amirim

3 nights in paradise!! The owners, Arva and Ohn, treat their guests like old friends or even family (Arva lent me her walking shoes as mine were useless after walking Ramon). The views from the room are fantastic, honestly priceless! You can borrow movies and watch them from your jacuzzi if you desire. Arva and Ohn know a lot about the area so they'll guide you if you need to for places to eat, walks and many other things. I would go back immediately!! Highly recommended.

Luxury cabin it was not: furnishings were stained and very dated; kitchen supplies were broken and unclean; and, the sheets had stains. Gross. We couldn't imagine the owners putting so much money into electronics for the cabins instead of replacing old sheets, towels, rugs, etc...None of this would have mattered if Ohn-Bar marketed itself as rustic cabins with a view - do not expect luxury as they claim. The location was fantastic for sightseeing. And the views from some of the cabins are out of this world. Fresh fruit and organic dates in the room were a nice gesture.

Room Tip: Make sure you take a room with a view!

Dear LMDinTLV,

We appreciate your taking the time to review our guesthouse and provide us with important feedback. We are constantly looking for ways to improve our facilities and service.

The suite you stayed at has received our full attention. We have replaced furniture and rugs and upgraded all kitchen utensils in all units. Please note that we do advertise ourselves as an ecologically aware operation - most hotels routinely use highly toxic chemicals which indeed are effective at getting immediate aesthetic results however at great cost to our health and environment. This is by no means an excuse to be "rustic" however we do ask for understanding as we always are looking for alternative cleaning agents that are effective enough.

We apologize for the inconvenience and hope you will return and give us another chance to serve you. If and when you choose to make a reservation, we will take into account your constructive report and adjust the rate accordingly.

Best regards,

Ohn-Bar Guesthouse in Amirim

Our family spent a very nice and relaxing time here recently. As we were late to arrive, we contacted the owner who called ahead to Dalia's (restaurant). They graciously stayed open so that we could have dinner there after a long day on the road. We slept soundly that first night and awoke to well appointed rooms as well as an outside seating area with great views of the surrounding countryside. The cabins provide a centrally-located base for day trips around Galilee to see the many attractions this area has to offer. We had a wonderful time here!
