Guest rooms

Guest Rooms
Each of the 165 spacious rooms of the Ramat Rachel Hotel overlooks a breathtaking view of the surrounding Jerusalem hills. The larger VIP rooms are equipped with Jacuzzis and other features. Every hotel room has cable television, central air conditioning, a radio, and a direct dial phone with message service. There are also no-smoking rooms, adjacent rooms with connecting doors, and specially equipped rooms for the disabled.

Hotel dining room

The hotel restaurant, with large windows offering a clear view of Bethlehem and Jerusalem’s newer neighborhoods, seats 350. Three hearty koshers meals are served daily. The famous Israeli-style breakfast, included in the room price, is a wonderful way to start an event-filled day. The marble buffet tables are filled with an assortment of salads, omelets, freshly baked breads and pastries, cheeses and other dairy selections. Lunches and dinners are also served buffet-style, beginning with an array of salads and appetizers prepared with fresh local produce, and continuing with a rich selection of soups, first courses, and entrees. The dessert buffet caps off the meal with freshly baked cakes and other sweets and an assortment of fresh fruit in season.

Coffee shop - Bar

The café/bar, located in the hotel lobby and open from morning to midnight, serves soft drinks, alcoholic beverages, and light meals. Guests enjoy this lovely indoor/outdoor setting for get-togethers over an early-morning coffee, a late afternoon tea, or a pre-dinner aperitif. The bar has a collection of high-quality, expertly chosen Israeli wines, as well as a variety of non-alcoholic beverages.

Gift shop

Gift Shop
Anyone searching for just the right souvenir or gift will most likely find it at the hotel gift shop, located in the lobby. Silk accessories, Dead Sea beauty products and other cosmetics, printed T-shirts, Armenian ceramics, Jerusalem decorative glass, jewelry designed by local artists, and many, many more items are conveniently and attractively displayed. The shop is also the place to find the beautiful and expertly crafted jewelry of Yael Cohen, a member of Kibbutz Ramat Rachel.

Events Garden

Banquet & Events Garden
The setting for Ramat Rachel’s Banquet Garden is an expansive, beautifully landscaped area adjacent to the hotel. The hall is ideal for hosting family celebrations: a brit or britah, a Bar or Bat Mitzvah, a wedding, or any other special occasion. The hall is air conditioned in summer and heated in winter, making it suitable for year-round use. The wedding canopy, stretching over a Jerusalem-stone base, is located on a hill that overlooks the stunning landscape to the south, which includes the ancient site of Herodian. This exceptional view is a memorable part of every celebration. The friendly and experienced banquet staff works with the hosts to plan a personally selected menu drawn from the rich variety of items on the menu, which represent the best of international cuisines. Ramat Rachel’s talented MDR Design staff offers expert guidance in choosing the design features and floral arrangements that add an artistic touch to any event.

Swimming pool

Swimming Pool
On the hilltop area surrounding the semi-Olympic-size pool, guests enjoy the country club atmosphere of lush green lawns, shade-providing trees, and comfy lounge chairs. The large pool (covered and heated in winter) is a few steps away from a children’s pool with protective shading from the summer sun. Jerusalem’s longest water slide (operational during the summer months) is a special, much-enjoyed feature. Four tennis courts are also available for use. The pool cafeteria has an air-conditioned interior and a large balcony, both offering panoramic views of the surrounding landscape. Reasonably priced snacks and beverages are served throughout the day.

Sports Center

Sports Center
The center’s spacious gym is fitted with state-of-the-art training equipment that guests can use to maintain their regular fitness routine. They are also welcome to participate in one of the many different exercise classes scheduled throughout the day and led by professionally trained instructors.

[Hotel guests are required to pay a small fee for the use of the gym and for participation in the exercise classes].

For post-workout relaxation, or a soothing end to a day of touring, guests can enjoy the Jacuzzi, the steam sauna, or the dry heat sauna.


The hushed tranquility of the Ramat Rachel spa envelopes visitors the moment they enter. Hotel guests can sign up for any of the treatments provided there, which include massages (Swedish, deep tissue, Ayurveda and more) and holistic treatments (such as Shiatsu, aromatherapy, and reflexology), as well as facials and oil baths. The entire spa staff is professionally trained and highly experienced in a variety of treatment types. Guests are invited to call or visit to arrange for appointments.

Conventions Center

Conference Center
The Ramat Rachel Hotel regularly hosts congresses, conferences, seminars, and workshops in a number of halls specially designed to meet every need. Facilities include small conference rooms with comfortable seating for 10 to 100 people and an auditorium seating up to 270. The hotel also supplies sound systems, display screens, slide and video projection equipment, televisions, phone lines, and wireless Internet service for conference organizers and participants.

Olive Tree Park

Olive Trees Park
An environmental art project designed by the sculptor Ran Morin, the Olive Park consists of 200 olive trees planted in a circular pattern around two monumental columns, each supporting a live olive tree. The park is a short walk from the hotel, at the edge of the hill overlooking the modern road, linking central Jerusalem and the ancient Herodian fortress, and the “Ancestors' Road” that was once the main entrance to the city. The trees continue to grow and bear fruit thanks to a specially designed irrigation system and constant care.

Archaelogy Garden

Archeological Park
A short walk from the modern Ramat Rachel Hotel lies an archeological site with astounding remains from as early as the First Temple and Byzantine Eras. Traces of a Byzantine church, Roman army camp, and Jewish ritual bathhouse are clearly visible. In 2002, the ancient site was given new aesthetic appeal by the artist Ron Morin, who designed the area to give visitors a vivid impression of the civilizations that resided there over the centuries.

Yair's Lookout

Mitzpeh Yair
The panoramic view from this chiseled stone observation point takes in the Dome of the Rock in the Old City, Mt. Scopus, Bethlehem and the Church of the Nativity, and a large portion of the modern city of Jerusalem. A spiral staircase leads downward to an ancient quarry that supplied stones for construction at Ramat Rachel in ancient times - the same stones now visible at the adjacent archeological site. Designed by Ran Morin, Mitzpeh Yair was established as a living memorial to Yair Engel, a third-generation resident of Kibbutz Ramat Rachel and grandson to two of its founders. Yair lost his life in a diving accident in1996 while serving in the IDF Naval Corps.
