Excellent location, near all the main attractions. The rooms don't have wireless internet and the hotel itself is getting old.
The breakfast Nothing
the reconstriction of hotel, especialy facilities old refuniture, the price very expensive
The staff was very friendly particularly the cleaninging staff, as well as the staff at the morning breakfast. I found overall t was a good experience staying here. My wife and our two girls stayed there in 1981 as well and brought some good memories from the past.
The excellent view from the room and the ideal location of the hotel
hotel rooms are old and smelly, the carpet was sticky and the bathroom smelled like a mens public toilet - terrible.
Excellant location and view, nice breakfast. Bed was too hard, not comfortable.
Locatiom run down and old
value for money for families with young children. rooms are in need of renovation.
The breakfast was pretty good and the lobby was a good space for using our laptop. The quilts were too hot the bathrooms were small the hotel is dated and needs an upgrade
We enjoyed the hotel
Excellent breakfasts, very clean, great pool, amazing views. Very very small beds and rooms and few commodities in the room, considering the price.
breakfast room is very small & TV - old-fashioned
Honestly nothing about the hotel other than location overlooking Haifa proper and the Mediteranian Stayed in rooms 1212 and 1210. Furniture old, scratched..etc. Dull hotel. Carpets looked dirty and rooms smelled bad. I think hotel reflects very poor value for money.
A very comfotrtable hotel with excellent views and very helpful staff.
Very good room, very good breakfast, great view! Nothing, all ok
The hotel is located in good location the room was clean and the staff friendly. however the room was a simple 2 star hotel room. I was very disappointed. because for such a room the price was extremely high.
This is a great place - setting is spectacular, facilities are great, activities are varied and nicely done. The whole experience --- almost --- was amazing, and probably a good value despite the very high price (nearly $500 USD for 2 per night, full board). The food was great, nicely presented, good service for the most part, and lots of it. You will not lose weight here. There were some surprises: For one -- drink charges at the meals and lack of coffee or tea with lunch and dinner. I may be the only person in the world who likes my dessert with coffee or tea, but you can't get it here. You have to leave the restaurant and get your coffee in the lobby, one level up, after your meal. Just strange, and a bit annoying. Also, the waiters ask you what you want to drink but do not tell you that a lot of the beverages (like a simple coke or mineral water) are not included in the "full board." So, after you order, get served, and begin drinking, they come with a receipt to sign!!! When I complained, they basically said "tough luck." Strange.
It is quiet and luxurious and designed for those having spa treatments, but with many other activities and great food.
excellent cuisine relaxing environment no
the peace and quite is incredible !!
Ambiance of the hotel.I have stayed at the hotel on several previous trips to Israel and I recommended it to others. I felt hotel was overbooked for the staff it had. The Dinner hours became problematic with seating.The staff seemed to be in a hurry to clear the tables.Certainly very different form my other previous visits to the Spa.I had with me 4 other guests from Canada, who checked out early!! Too bad.
Excellent hotel, excellent spa, no kids and gourmet cooking, what more could one ask for .................
In addition to all the spag treatments, the hotel is set in the middle of the Carmel Forest with a view of the seai in the distance. The outdoor pool is well heated and large with plenty of lounges and beds outside on the lawn. They recommended signing up for treatments before arrival but never answered phone and did not answer message left on machine.
i like very much the Spa the swimmingpool and the food
The hotel was so relaxing! Loved the treatments and all the food. The service was really good as well.
The Spa lived up to expectations which were high. Staff are warm, smiley and polite, the location is excellent for rest and relaxation and the food is excellent
Absolutely amazing facilities, kind staff, great location, great value for the money! I stayed in the 'unicorn room'- the one with the blue lights- and loved evey moment. The shower might just have been the best part of the amenities (youll have to stay to see...). AMAZING complimentary breakfast provided through a voucher with an adjacent resteraunt. Top notch all the way!! Also, the location in Haifa COULD NOT have been better, right at the foot of the Baha'i Gardens! I liked it all. No complaints whatsoever.
The hotel staff is friendly and helpful; this is a step up front usual Israeli hotel staff many of which do not understand the concept of customer service. Israeli hotels, especially outside of Tel Aviv are still grappling with this concept. Same for retail and food stores. Unfortunately, Israel is great at building things but very poor at maintaining them. The Crowne Plaza is typical was built but 15 years ago and is already starting to look shoddy around the edges. We noticed that mold is starting to appear, especially in the bathrooms, and the wood trim is beginning to rot away; Haifa can be quite humid during certain times of the year. Also, the hotels A/C is either on or off, no temperature settings other than 4 settings indicating warmer or colder; after that is just stays on blowing. Friends of ours stayed at a competing Dan hotel, but the situation is the same. They characterized it as a "tired" Hyatt.
Breakfast included was lavish and tasty and served with warmth in a wonderful open garden room/cafe style. The wallpaper was black with some white flowers - nice but a bit too dark for our taste. The bathroom too, was black which although the lighting was good, it was a dreary feeling. Bathtub had jacuzzi which we do not like, and very narrow, so larger people would have trouble standing in it to shower!
This was the best hotel of our stay in Israel.
Our room was lovely and the service, food and attention was faublous.
I liked the location and the personal touch of the team.
Quality small boutique hotel in good Haifa location
Location, wife and I walked to Bahai Gardens, rooftop jaccuzzi and food quality; No Local beers!
Friendly and efficient staff. Charming atmosphere. The room was nice but a bit small, especially the bath, but for a simple stop en route north it was satisfactory.
Spa like, country style room with modern conveniences
Attentive staff. Nice to be in a smaller, boutique hotel with amenities.
Very nice hotel, good breakfast and restaurant. Hotel did not have bar/sitting area. Only central space was the restaurant. However, this is a guest house, not a hotel so that is not such a surprise.
the best location in Haifa, it is a walking distance from the Bahai' Gardens and close to the bus stops. I would recommend it for all type of travellers. None
The hotel was located in a very nice area and had amenities of a very high Western standard
Beautiful architecture, friendly staff, tasty & varied breakfast, central location
breakfast fickle Internet
the elevator works consistently and a female voice announces floors and door openings and closings in a pleasant British accent my room had an old fashioned tub (okay) but no full fledged shower
Excellent location, steps from Bahai Gardens, several restaurants on the same street, the hotel has its own parking, very clean, very good breakfast, free internet They charge for the calls made using the calling card. This was the only hotel out of four we stayed in Israel where we were charged for calls using calling card. I would understand charges if we called without calling card, but charging us when we called using the calling card it is not fare.
the bathtub was awesome. the room was clean and comfortable the staff was very helpful. breakfast was very good.
Great Quality, Location, friendly staff..a perfect experience More parking places would be of advantage and travel directions from website should have default settings as Airport Ben Gurion to Haifa is difficult if e.g. airport address is not known.
Room are clean and well equiped. Hotel is placed on an animated street and close to the Carmel garden. Staff is invisible ...
clean, modern, great staff, great breakfast buffet and awesome location. It was the best place we could have stayed. Maid service was a little spotty. They didn't replace coffee in our room.
The only hotel in Haifa located right on the beach. Very quite room (may be because the hotel was quite empty during our stay, but still). Exellent sea view from the room, good breakfast, helpful stuff. Free undeground parking. Very quite area, nothing but the waves of the sea could be heard from the room at night. The hotel is rather far from the city center with restaurants, bars, tourist sites, etc. However we have had a car with us, so that did not bother us. If you are looking for true 4-stars hotel, this will not be your choice, the room was good and clean, however it definitely requires some renovation. We have stayed by a special offer - 4 nights for a price of 3, that was OK for me, the regular price of $200 per night seems a bit overpriced.
The location by the beach was nice. The room was a spacious suite.The beach was nice. The hotel is very tired and needs a renovation. The smell in the lobby and hallways of some disinfectant was horrible. The cleanliness was lacking. The dining room looks like it is from the 50s.During our stay the TV did not work and could not be fixed due to holidays.You could not get a coffee with your dinner. The surrounding area was littered and needed cleanup and sweeping.
Only Sea View. .. Service is not good enough, including the staff competencies, bath room and breakfast restaurant were dirty, delivery of the luggage from the room to the reception (when we checked out) took around 45 minutes... and we have been obliged to go back to the room, as nobody was in charge of it. Food was not at standard 4 stars hotel level (any fruits juices , any fresh fruits, but a lot of various salty meals for a breakfast.)Any direct access to a beach (as indicated in the hotel description). Hotel needs a general service improvement and refreshment!
Apartment very confortable with look to the sea, good breakfast and a good lokation to go to all citys around. I didn't used the swimming pool and fitness instalations.
The see and the beach Oldfashion bathroom
The hotel is not 5 star. By usa standards, it is 3 star. The hallways were not air conditioned, so you step out into a Sauna in the hallway. In general, the appearance of the room was closer to 3 star than 5. Compared to other overpriced hotels in Haifa, I suppose it was still an ok deal. Service was slow to arrive when asked for.
The indoor pool is excellent The telephone in the room did not work most of the time (out of six days)
The view Poor service, low hygiene - dirty, bad & unfreshed food.
business lounge was very good;wifi rather weak. elevators long waiing time ; staff using extensively elevators without reagrds for the guests
The pool is very good.
Staff were good The description was misleading. It's a hotel for large families on a budget. Cheap food, sparse 'east clean' rooms with old furniture.
It was a good location-near beach and shops.Reception was exceptionally helpful.
Staff are very kind and helpful,especially at the reciption.breakfast menue can be better, the area is calm. thanks for ur good services,I like to come back to this hotel
Affordable restaurant and other amenities (massages available for extra fee) No AC in the rooms. Staff barely spoke english.
The friendly staff!! It is an extremely simple hotel, the room was small and there were no luxuries, but everything was clean and the staff were helpful and friendly. There was no hairdryer. Bring your own shampoo! The room was a bit noisy due to heavy traffic.
clean well run family hotel --- near sea --- also free country club membership with indoor pool. staff v helpful--- nice toiletries in bathroom just b and b -- no other meals
You've got a fridge in your room to store your own food. Keys of the hotel rooms were left multiple times on a table in a corridor by a cleaner just like that, where anyone visiting the hotel could have taken them and to intrude into a room. They have Internet PC, but it's slow.
Conveniently located, clean and comfortable. Good breakfast.
Very helpful staff - inexpensive and fairly well located.Offered help and provided discounted tickets. Shower curtain rod kept falling on my head.
The staff was extremely helpful, the place was tastefully designed and extremely clean.
Nice hotel. Good breakfast, wireless internet, comfortable room. No complaints
Great hotel. You get this "being far away, yet at home" feeling.
