A Private Peaceful Place

3.8 on July 08, 2011

Ilana's is a lovely peaceful place to stay outside of Jerusalem yet conveniently close. It is especially good if you have a rental car as they offer plenty of covered parking spaces. They have lovely gardens to enjoy surrounding their place. They do not offer any meals but are very helpful in directing one to restaurants & places to buy groceries for your kitchen, etc. The innkeepers themselves are very hospitable, helpful, lovely people with a wealth of knowledge about the area. The accommodations are not fancy but they are private, peaceful & pleasant. There was ample hot water for a nice long shower & nothing to complain about. I would definitely stay again & reccommend it to anyone who enjoys peace, privacy, the beauty of natural surroundings & very gracious hosts.

After you leave the main road you drive about 5 minutes. When you reach the box of the guardien you continue to the left for 2 minutes drive and reach the center of the village. While the Silo tower and bus station beside are on your right you turn immediately after , to your right, and proceed 50 meters straight to the second junction (a tree in the middle) where you turn left to Derech Hazeitim st. The fifth house on your right is Shoket No 14 .You climb up to the courtyard and enter any of the closest covered parkings to our house.
