My wife and I stayed at the Yehelim hotel for one night in June of 2012. Our room (like most of the rooms) faced the desert and you could see goats and goat herders in the distance. The hotel is very clean, modern, and quiet. Service is very personal but not intrusive. The hotel is located near the entry to the road leading to the road leading to the western entry to Masada. We drove there before the sunset and it took us about 15 minutes or so to get there and about 15-20 minutes to climb. The owner of the hotel is a former travel journalist who is a real naturalist. His real love is camping and hiking in the desert and he is full of information about these and related topics. He is also a great cook and is a virtuoso when it comes to using his chef's knife. I wish we could stay longer to have more conversations with Gili and his family, to eat more of his great breakfasts, and to learn about the desert.
This hotel is a little difficult to find since they don't have a large sign. If you put the name of the street into your GPS, try to spell the street name Mo'av. My GPS could not find this street if spelled without the apostrophe.
