  • A place with clear left opinions on the Israel's realm. And they teach you their opinions like it was facts. This is not true... Also when I visited the place there was an exhibition about the leaders of Israel. They present them not in a respective way.
  • An inspiring educational tour. Makes you wonder about tomorrow's leaders who don't have the model from a persona like Begin.
  • We had a nice tour with the guides of this place. After the tour we had a very good musical show. The bathrooms are very clean.
  • Intriguing monument over an amazing man with a big heart for Israel and people's need.
  • Inspiring and beautiful. The right used to have leaders...

Where to stay in Jerusalem

Although it lacks a big selection of mid-range options, Jerusalem provides plenty of choices in the top-end hotel category. The Old City contains the bulk of Jerusalem's small hotels, inexpensive hostels, and religious hospices, all of which appeal to budget-conscious travelers. West Jerusalem offers additional options in the form of guesthouses and bigger hotels, some of which boast five-star ratings. If you just need a bed, consider a youth hostel, where you can choose between private and common rooms with Wi-Fi included.
