Hotel Deals - Israel: Getting the Most for Every Dollar Spent

Published December 8th, 2009 - 03:07 GMT

Zimmers, known as Bed & Breakfasts in many
parts of the world, are outstanding choices for accommodation in Israel. According
to the last survey, country lodging owners say the number of tourists staying with
them has grown by 40% in the past two years, and it's clear why.

The most logical reason is that tourists are looking for the best accommodation
value in Israel. The increasing number of zimmers available, along with
sophisticated tourists, who shop around for the best deal, are two other reasons
that zimmers are becoming trendy. "Ask any businessman and he will tell you that
every hotel in the world looks the same from inside. On the other hand - waking in a
private wooden hut in Galilee, with a window over the Sea of Galilee, to a great
fresh Israeli breakfast, is unforgettable," says Tamar, manager of the premium
zimmer in Galilee, Bet Ha'erez.

The best available Bed & Breakfasts resorts in Israel routinely cost 25% to 50% less
than the cost of a Tel Aviv hotel, which will cost around $250.00 per night. A
zimmer in Galilee costs $170.00 to $200.00, saving you around 25%. The difference in
mid-week rates is even bigger, with lodging costs at zimmers being 30% to 50% lower
than hotel prices.

Most zimmers, particularly top rated ones, have services that often exceed those of
hotels, including extras like Jacuzzis, wine, mini bar, and Cable TV, which usually
cost extra at hotels. A romantic B&B lodge is the perfect getaway for couples, and
zimmer owners are great sources of information about local attractions.

Bet Ha'erez is one of the most popular bed & breakfast resort among tourists. It's
perfectly located for tourists visiting the Galilee area and features a private
pool, wooden huts, Jacuzzi and cable TV in rooms, sauna, and various spa services.
Bet Ha'erez is located 10 minutes from the Sea of Galilee and Rosh-Pina, 20 minutes
from Mount Hermon, and 40 minutes from Nazareth.
