For a relaxing refuge overlooking Jerusalem and Bethlehem, try this hotel in a kibbutz just 15 minutes from Downtown. The relaxed, informal atmosphere is a big part of this hotel's appeal. Modern furnishings are done up in bright shades of lime and plum, and long sofas hugging the picture windows can be folded out to sleep up to three kids. With a fine pool, tennis courts, and large gym, Ramat Rachel feels like a resort. Kids love the playground, petting zoo, and waterslide.
