Isrotel Ramon Inn - Mitzpe Ramon

Ramon Inn a small and cozy hotel. It was built on two existing apartment blocks. The apartments were converted into studios and suites, the lower level is where the reception, lobby, dining room, swimming pool and spa, and the rest of the hotel facilities were built. The hotel has one drawback, there are no elevators and it is not accessible.

Mitzpe Ramon

Mitzpe Ramon is located on the northern edge of Makhtesh Ramon (Ramon crater). Beyond having a fantastic view of the crater, there are many hiking paths activities such as off-road trips, rappelling, mountain biking, stargazing, and agricultural and culinary attractions.
Mitzpe Ramon is the home of about 5,500 residents and many ibexes that roam around this small, sleepy town freely. The main attraction here is the promenade “the desert’s balcony” where the magnificent view of the crater stretches to the horizon!
The average stay here is two nights, although there is so much to do here that one needs a week to cover. This is our second stay here recently and we enjoyed it so much that we already plan to come back and catch up with everything that we did not have time to do.  We stayed at Isrotel’s Ramon Inn, an all-suite hotel with a heated swimming pool, which is an excellent base for trips.


Ramon Inn is an all-suite hotel with three types of rooms: studio, one, and two-bedroom suite with kitchen and dining room. We stayed in a two-bedroom suite. One room had a queen room and the other twin beds. The sofa in the living room can be opened to accommodate one more adult or children. The suite has a bath with bathtub and separate toilet, very comfortable. The kitchen is equipped with cooker, microwave, kettle and tableware. There is a safe deposit box, free WIFI and full climate control. We were very comfortable there!

Besides the option to cook, the stay includes breakfast and there is an option for dinner and dairy lobby bar. The meals at the dining room are buffet style. The food is served aesthetically in locally-made clay serving bowls. The buffet is compact, we did not have to run around from side to side to fill our plates, yet the selection was very wide and included many salads and warm options, including vegan and children food. The cuisine is local with Moroccan touch; we had couscous, Moroccan fish, and okra, although some of it was a bit spicy. Shabbat dinner was fancier featuring excellent Assado.

The dining room is rather small and surprisingly calm considering that it was a holiday and the hotel was full of children. Yossi Levi, the hotel manager, was always around smiling to everyone and greeting returning guests who remembered him and making everyone comfortable, as if this was a family inn, making this hotel especially warm and friendly.


After dinner, we sat at the lobby. There is a Moroccan corner there with cushions and a round fireplace, which we especially enjoyed in the cold nights here.


During the afternoons, when we returned from the trips and activities, we enjoyed the hotel’s pool. It is a nice midsize heated pool to cool down from the local summer heat but suitable for the winter as well. There is also a tiny gym and dry and wet-saunas.

In addition, there is a kiddy club, table tennis, pool table and mountain bike rental. The hotel offers a drop off service for cyclers.

Most of the attractions we went to were less than 10 minutes drive from the hotel.
The average price for a family of 4 at Isrotel Ramon Inn is NIS 600.
