My husband and I enjoyed a 4-night stay here in November. It was a pleasure to receive a warm welcome from many of the staff. The gardens are lovely and clearly loved. The cold buffet breakfast is adequate with a range of choices. Coffee and tea (and sometimes milk) are available in the guest house kitchen at any time. There was no soap in our bathroom - bring your own. The room had heating. Wi-fi is good. Beds pretty hard and slightly short if you're over 6 feet tall! You will need to catch a bus (the 28) and the light rail to get into Jerusalem. If you don't use a Rav card this means paying about 6 shekels per trip leg. We would return here for the peaceful ambience, wonderful view and warm welcome. It might be less peaceful in peak season.
