Travelling alone.

Hotel review by Kirsten, Denmark in 14 November 2012

My husband and I have stayed several times at Ramat Rachel, but this time I was alone. I got the specific room I asked for, the staff cared for me and I felt secure and comfortable all the time. The mattress is a bit too hard for me. I had this problem when eating alone, that the efficient st...

Ce qui le distingue, c'est la chambre

Hotel review by DAVID, France in 21 August 2012

Ramat Rachel est en fait un grand kibboutz à la limite de Jérusalem,à côté du quatier de Talpiyot(direction BethLéhem). L'hôtel est grand et spacieux et offre une magnifique vue dégagée sur Jérusalem. Il est équipé pour accueillir des cérémonies du type mariage, BM, ... D'ailleurs, nous sommes res...

Hotel review by Louis, United States in 01 July 2012

I always enjoy my stay at Ramat Rachel Hotel. Everyone treats us very warmly and makes us feel welcome. Two people in your staff that really made us feel welcome on this visit are Ossina at the reception and Luay in the Restaurant. They both are very nice and friendly people. Sincerely, Louie ...

Hotel review by Kirsten, Denmark in 29 December 2011

Hello, My husband and I have stayed at Ramat Rachel Hotel several times, and we love it - and we will keep coming as we have family near by. However, the renovated rooms, as lovely as they are, have very hard mattresses. But room 554 is lovely, it is not renovated (yet?) and the mattress is fine!...

Israeli manners

Hotel review by Nancybickel, United States in 23 November 2011

We have traveled many times to Israel and have lived in Jerusalem, so we are very familiar with Traditional Israeli manners, that is, that Israelis often have little Interest in being welcoming or helpful to visitors. Although many of the staff were friendly and helpful, others were not. The pe...

Hotel review by Larry, United States in 22 September 2011

We were there for 4 days, and the first 3 were great. Then came Shabbat. The hotel is not set up for individual guests on Shabbat. (1)Nothing was posted on the bulletin board, and the front desk had no information, so late in the afternoon on Friday we called the mashgiach to inquire what time ...

Hotel review by Leo, Canada in 28 August 2011

Our stay at Ramat Rachel Hotel was spectacular!!! Two points to ponder: We were disappointed that computer access was not available during our stay (although the staff courteously allowed us to check our email behind the front desk ;) Note: I didn't give the food a "five" because we had ordered a...

Hotel review by William, United States in 20 August 2011

I was very disappointed to find out that others had paid far less for the same room than I had. That is wrong. If the price I pay is based on the booking service I use, then I can't trust that I am being treated fairly. Especially, when I don't even know my booking options. Also, there were weddi...

Hotel review by Anne, United Kingdom in 22 March 2011

I stay at Ramat Rachel as it is close to my sister but it has all the facilities I need for that type of visit. It would not be suitable for a family needing a Jewish atmosphere as most of the groups staying there appear to be non -Jewish. For me it was perfect and except for the renovations at th...

We have stayed here 6 times in the last 10 years. We were disappointed to be woken at 5.30am by the hotel fire alarm. No explanation was given why it went off. The rooms have improved since refurbishment. The swimming pool area was not particularly clean, especially in the changing room. We did...

Upon check-out the waiter wanted to collect the payment for the second time but a call to manager solved the problem. I would recommend...

Hotel review by Howard , United States in 09 December 2010

Very spacious, comfortable rooms. The meal plan worked great for us- breakfast before we started a long day of exploring, and dinner at the end of the day. It's out of the way, but we would definitely stay there in the future....

Hotel review by Anton, United Kingdom in 04 May 2010

This is an unpretentious, very adequate hotel, and with fine food. Because Jerusalem is small, its location is just OK compared with hotels in the centre. We would certainly wish to stay there again if we were in Jerusalem - it is a pity there are not more kibbutz hotels in other towns....

The only criticism of your hotel is that it was very difficult to find. I had rented a car, Jerusalem anyway is without many signposts (or street names where you expect them to be), and so driving to your hotel was a nightmare. I almost gave up!!!!...
