We took the yellow room, and had an outstanding breakfast. Spacious room, wonderfull hosts. Highlly. Reccommended! There is a pool too, but I guess it is only for summertime. A very comfortable boutique room and friendly staff. Thanks!!

You can walk to the nature park, where you can see to Jerusalem. Nice pool and comfortable rooms with good breakfest. There is also a beautiful garden with barbeque. At the town, there is a small castle on top of the hill.

This is not your typical hotel and thus what you expect from a hotel does not necessarily apply here. It is a small guest house/residence with 5 rooms. It is a peaceful and homely place with a small swimming pool and garden and a relaxing atmosphere. The breakfast buffet is very good with items from Scandinavia. Located in a village...

Unbelievably unprofessional. When I came to the hotel, I was met by two elderly men from Finnland who spoke almost no English at all. The woman I spoke to on the phone to make the reservation did not show up as promised. She took my credit card information over the phone and promised to meet me in the morning to...

This is not something you see a lot in Israel - a nice small "homy" hotel, designed with a good taste and maintained by (at least from what I could see) nice ladies from abroad(Finland?). I real loved the intimacy of the hotel, the quite little garden, the TV/playing/piano room, the nice pool + small pool for toddlers. Now the...

Me and wife been there for the 2nd time and more to come. Been there with 2 little girls and also alone. Very quite place located in the edge of the forest (nice tracks nearby for walking or running !!). It is very close to Jerusalem but far enough if you seek for a quiet place. Very nice rooms (only...

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights in this place. First of all it is quite difficult to find. Very narrow street, which makes parking difficult. We received a nice and clean suite but no TV about which we were not notified before. Breakfast OK, nothing special. Service is nice. Small swimming pool is a real asset, especially if...

Very pleasant and helpful Scandinavians run this small guest house. It is outside Jerusalem so a car is essential. We paid off-season prices which were reasonable for Jerusalem. The whole place is very attractive and well kept. Our bedroom was very pretty but had twin beds, one of which wasn't so comfortable. The room had a small fridge with everything...

Not too far from Jerusalem (you need a car!), you'll find this nice and different Zimmer run by people from Finland which spend a 3 month period in Israel (so part of the reviews about the people that run the place may not be so relevant). We were attended by a nice woman who showed the place around and told...

Thank you for your review on our small place in the Judean Mountains! Through our hostel we want to bring a taste of Scandinavia to Israel, so that the people staying there can feel themselves warmly welcome, and experience the hospitality. We are aware of the mentioned renovation needs and we are currently working on them. We appreciate your feedback...

Friendly owners greeted me and showed me to a delightful room with ensuite. The location is ideal for a stay in the Jerusalem area. Managed by Scandinavians with great attention to detail. Lovely pool and gardens with a bbq (non kosher meals provided)
