I couldn't find my old thread, so for the benefit of Davetheguide. . . .
Looks like you will get your wish. Nof Ginosar is booked up the night we wanted, so I think we will be staying at Ramot after all. I know you like it a lot and so did Kathy4HIM, who stayed there in May after Nof Ginosar booked up for her trip. (That place does a lot of group tours and books up EARLY.) I'm sure I will enjoy Ramot. I also have Chantal looking at the Scots Hotel -- almost surely outside of our budget, but we'll get a quote.
