After passover was finished we wanted to take a break from cleaning, cocking, organizing etc... we were looking from somthing cheap, comfortable not far from home. We took F/B (Full pension). The hotel had Bar Mitzvah guests so the effect was all regular paying fully money pushed a side, shaming!!!. It means, eating with the kibbutz members, no service to your table, pick up your own dishes, no choices on food. Food is very low like a worker's dinner, low quality, not tasty, you name it. Rooms was small no space, CRT television, (even my grandmother gave it). Some of the rooms have access to carts, babies and elderly can access the rooms. The reception guys were good and the guys in the dinner room, they were very welcoming and helping, but the management decisions to mix between guests and kibbutz member is wrong! What's next? Milking cows? Picking eggs? The very big advantage is the free enter to Kiftzuba playground & Galita chocolate that is very good point for families with kids. To the management- separate between guests & members (i have nothing against kibbutz i love them, good people). Don't call yourself Hotel because you're not, you are more like a hostel. If you're having big group don't have individual guests. Make better food as hotel class not like worker's dinner. Potential guests - I would not recommend to have a room for long stay, unless you're really stuck without alternatives or you're looking for minimal hostel to put your head and having a shower.

I stayed here for 9 days while visiting my daughter who is studying in Israel for four months (and also living on Kibbutz Tzuba with the others in her group). I had a very positive experience staying here. Each room is really two rooms - a nice sized bedroom with a double sized bed, a tv and ample storage, and a living room with another tv and a kitchenette. There is an electric kettle and a stash of teas and coffees to be used, and a nice sized mini fridge. Each room has a bathroom which is not as teensy as I have seen in Israel and Europe, and very clean. There is also a small balcony. I was very comfortable here. The wifi was fairly reliable and the rooms are conveniently located. The kibbutz is not far from Jerusalem, but if you don't have a car, you will need a taxi. It is also nearby to a little town called Ein Kerem which is a nice place to visit. The people on Kibbutz Tzuba are lovely - friendly, helpful and a joy to chat with (both the kibbutz residents/members and the hotel staff). The kibbutz is beautiful with lush greenery, gorgeous views, a little grocery store, friendly dogs and cats roaming, and some other on-site attractions. I never had time to visit, but evidently there is a winery on the kibbutz as well as a chocolate factory!!! (Dang, I should have gone!!) The kibbutz has a rich history and a longtime member named Reuven showed some of us around the day we arrived and shared the history of the kibbutz with us. If you can find someone to teach you a few things about this richly historical region and kibbutz, take advantage of it. Next time I am blessed to be in Israel, I would consider coming back here however I would probably rent a car so as to avoid taxi usage. (Might be cheaper that way overall.) Thanks for a great stay, Kibbutz Tzuba! Toda raba!

Politics should remain outside the kibbutz Gate

Great hotel location, very nice view, and good accessible rooms dividing: master bedroom & separated children's room and private lovely terrace. the rooms has a small kitchen inside with microwave and refrigerator & fully equipped and modern bathroom. The food quality is good and the meals has a wide variety. Free and ample car parking spots, very clean swimming pools. The only thing that bothered us was the loud rotating noise emanating from the bathroom damaged vent, starts each and every time the bathroom light went on, Unfortunately the hotel staff did not take care of fixing that untill our check out... However, in this kibbutz, which represents more than all the "Palmach" pioneering, we did not expected to see some of the service providers in the hotel as well at the amusement park wearing ostentatiously over their shirts, a necklace of a gold pendant with the symbol of the "1948 Arabs" (Map of all whole of the State of Israel with the symbol of the Islamic Crescent above) we could not understand why the Tzuba hotel and amusement park management does not prohibit a political demonstrations where it is intended for fun only. it was unnecessary, outrageous, bad tasted, and the crowd offensive feelings impressed.

Nice enough place, but a kibbutz hotel at 5-star city prices

The standard rooms are small suites in little four-suite buildings, with a small bedroom and a separate living area/kitchenette/dining area. And a tiny balcony. The living area consists of a sofabed.

The standard rooms are small suites in little four-suite buildings, with a small bedroom and a separate living area/kitchenette/dining area. And a tiny balcony. The living area consists of a sofabed. The minifridge in the kitchenette was incredibly noisy, which my wife attributed to its not being level. The furnishings are plain (kibbutz hotel) but newish. With greenery all around and absence of city noises it's a generally pleasant place to stay. They have a swimming pool that we didn't have time to use. But $200 a night for two people (+VAT for Israelis) is a bit over the top. It was the night before schools opened so you couldn't really say that it was still the high season. We had a wedding to attend in the area so I guess I was paying for the convenience. The air conditioner was quiet and efficient, and wasn't needed later in the evening or overnight. The bed was comfortable but sleeping in wasn't really an option because loud hotel workers positioned themselves outside our little building at 8am and that was it. Anyway, breakfast would only be available until 9:30. The clerk at check-in the night before seemed to be new and couldn't tell us where breakfast would be in the morning. I had stayed there a couple of years earlier and breakfast had been in the big room where the reception sits, so we tried that in the morning and were informed by the rude morning person at reception that breakfast for hotel guests is in the hotel dining room which turned out to be some rows of buildings away up a steep hillside with very little signage available to help us navigate those rows of buildings. She (the rude reception person) exhorted us to hurry up the hill since only 15 minutes were left before the end of breakfast. We eventually made it and found a large dining room in what I guess is a conference center. Breakfast was a big disappointment. It was like the bare minimum you could get away with as an Israeli hotel, never mind being a $200/night Israeli hotel. A meager selection of cheeses, rolls and fish, no salads, and no cakes or other desserts (unless you count packaged vanilla pudding cups). The only evidence that there was a kitchen somewhere and not just someone who picked up breakfast items at the supermarket was a pile of dry omelets in a warming tray. There's definitely room for improvement here.

an amazing family vacation
TripAdvisor RatingReviewed on September 17, 2016

We stayed 5 nights with 3 small children. The staff was very helpful with any of our requests and options to hike in the area turned this vacation to a very spacial one. There are many additional attraction in the area and Jerusalem is merely 15 minutes drive.
