Stay at Hana's guest house for easy access to the Western Entrance to Masada. Hana's place is a delightful, homey place to stay near the Dead Sea. You will have a small kitchen for your stay, and a clean, comfortable room. The road to the western entrance of Masada, where the Ramp Trail begins, is just a few blocks away. It is a 20-25 minute drive from Hana's house. Hana was very welcoming, and we enjoyed a hot cup of tea, and a delicious bowl of lentil soup upon our arrival. I only wish we had been able to stay longer. Next time.
Beware, there is no sign on her gate, so when you arrive at the address, knock on her door.
