Initially I didn't want to write a rewiew of this place, as I wanted to keep it to my self.. but for my little family of three, this was our perfect home away from home. A small shaded garden, functional small studios, and a very friendly host. Ruth was very helpful! She shared the history of the place, which is...

Imagine that you are taking your first trip in decades, you don't speak the language, you have trouble walking, and you hope that the booking you made on line is not a Fawlty Towers. Your taxi drops you off at a blue door set in a stone wall and you enter a little garden of Eden. You soon discover all...

I spent three whole months in the Garden studio of Ruthy, Tom and Noam, and I got an amazing time, for numerous reasons. First of all, for the strategic location of the apartment, which is sited in a lovely and very quiet neighborhood just minutes away from both the Old City and the new center of Jerusalem (Yafo St., Downtown...

We stayed in Ruti, Tom and Noam's "Garden Studio" for four nights during the recent August heat wave, and never suffered from the heat. Although there was air conditioning available we turned it on only briefly; the cool Jerusalem evening breezes and soft cooing of the doves were too sweet to shut out overnight. As others have said, the studio...

Lovely Home I stayed in March/April for five weeks in Ruti’s Garden Studio. I am a returning guest and have been there five times. I have lived in all three Studios and they are all lovely and have a touch of Ruti’s artistic skills. This time I had an accident at the airport and Ruti was always happy to help...

Thank you so much to Ruti, Tom and Noam for making our stay in Barkai studios such a pleasant experience! We enjoyed the lovely and convenient studio B which was spacious enough for 2 adults and 3 children, also the quiet, green though very central location and most of all the warm atmosphere in a family run place where we...

We stayed 5 nights 07-12 Nov 2014 in Studio B of Ruth Barkai's house. We really appreciated Ruth's help for our daily excursions, advices about transportations, where to park and not to park our rental car, which bus to take to Bethleem, Olive Mount or Ein Kerem, or to book Nesher shuttle service from the aiport. We had not enough...

We stayed in Studio B for two months (September and October) while working in the region, so the Barkai Studios became our home away from home. The studio was comfortable and quite spacious with the sleeping area being situated above the rest of the room. The shower was "compact" as Ruti formulated it, but still big enough for our needs....

Nice and comfortable studio near central and old Jerusalem. We loved to sit in the garden under the olive tree, that gives a welcome shadow, while drinking a glass of cool white wine. Ruti is a lovely person and very considerate and helpful. Hope to pay a visit to this garden studio in the near future. It's not a hotel,...

“I would not be too obsessed with getting the Garden Studio, they are all great options, and you have equal access to the garden. All three are great.”

“The garden apartment is located in the private garden. This garden is used by all people who stay - but we feel well in that place and we had private place to eat family breakfast. Normally the apartment is designed for 2 people. But we fit perfectly with our 4 years old son. And the location is perfect! There is a play ground around 200 m from the apartment. So after 15 km of walking your child can still play in the play ground for the next 2 hours....”
