Jerusalem,Tel Aviv(Yafo),Cairo or Petra.Any suggestions on Hotels or Restaurants.

Jerusalem area: It all depends upon your price range. The Sheraton Plaza is beautiful, comfortable and around $100 a night. It goes up around very busy times of year and varies on the view. The Days Inn/ Lev Jerusalem is a suite hotel with a poor dairy restaurant, but with full kitchen facilities. That runs about the same price as the Plaza. The King David is in a class by itself, at a very high rate; and towards the lower end is the Gesher house at about $40 including breakfast. If you have any other questions about Jerusalem, please email. Have a good time.

Just returned from Egypt and Jordan. Mena House in Giza has great food and spectacular view. Rooms are so-so. Also stayed at Semiramis Inter-Contentintal. Very comfortable room, great food. In Petra we stayed at the Movenpick. New hotel, beautifully decorated. Let me know if you need more information.

Just returned from a trip to Egpyt and Jordan. Stayed at Mena House in Gize near Pyramids. Great view, great food, so-so rooms. Also stayed at Semiramis Inter-Contenintal in downtown Cairo. Very comfortable room. Visited Jerusalem last year but don't remember name of hotel -- it overlooked the Sidron Valley. Beds not very comfortable. Since both trips were with a group, I'm not sure of the rates, although Mena House was posted at $175 per day. Have a great trip.

In Jordan, while visiting Petra, we stayed at a delightful hotel called the Taybet Zalman(sic). This was about 1/2 hour by car from Petra, but was no big deal, because the roads were fine. The hotel is a restoration of a desert caveranserai, including a hamam (bath), and loving re, a gift shop, and craft shop. The place is like a little village unto itself. An excellent, varied buffet dinner was served. The place was a real find, almost a destination in itself. There are hotels within walking distance of the entrance to Petra, but they are much more ordinary.

We stayed at the Moriah Plaza in Jerusalem last year (and in Tel Aviv we stayed in a nice place right on the shore of the Sea but I forgot the name, sorry) The King David in Jerusalem is good but a bit expensive.
