Try the Bransdorfer apartments in Geulah.  They run from 75 - 95 for one or, two bedrooms. Very basic, no amenities (NO internet connection) but comfortable and IMO, in a perfect location. 

To the person above regarding Rabbi Simcha Hochbaum.  The website is https://www.hebronfund.org/tours/.  I would suggest at least reaching out to him.  My guess is something can be worked out.  The website does say "$250 per immediate family (this family discount is offered for parents visiting with more than three paying children between the ages of 6 and 20)."

Looking for a tzimmer with a pool. Sleeps 6.  Pool does not have to be that large but big enough for my kids to practice swimming in.   Close to Yerushalaim a plus.  Any recommendations appreciated.

Will upgrading a Golan sim to the 100 Shekel plan work for service in Italy? Or you have to have the 100 Shek plan for at least a month even when upgrading?

Regardless of price rimon is not Landau Rubin or eida so thatís not what youíre looking for.

Try this, it's a 5-br villa in the Judean Hills, with a private pool in a gated community with shuls, and it looks nice. I think it's 15-20 min from Jerusalem.  I've never stayed there but once looked into it.

I'm not sure what you're willing to spend and I think this is more in the price range of a nice villa than a Tzimmer, but it looks really nice and it's very close to Jerusalem.

I imagine they'd treat it like a new plan. It'll still give you 100 min and 2 GB even in the first 30 days though:

 שיחות יוצאות ונכנסות מחו"ל לישראל ומישראל למנוי. ב-30 יום* הראשונים מההפעלה - 100 דקות שיחה

גלישה בחו"ל עד 6GB בחודש. ב-30 יום* הראשונים מההפעלה הגלישה בנפח 2GB
