Isreal is cheaper, but make sure to get a VAT form and take the goods with you to get refunded.

i want to book a tzimmer up north for 1 night, 2 days. i'm thinking of going for shabbos up to Golan Hights or Tsfat or Haifa area. which place would be most interesting to be over shabbos? how do i know if a site is reliable? what if i show up and there is no ac or dirty sheets? it's not like you could give or see bad reviews? it's just based on trust?! i'm a New Yorker. i'm skeptical of everything!
for over shabbos I would do tzfat it's beautiful
