Service and Staff
Property condition


  • Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Even though we had booked two rooms, the property had reserved only one room. As a result, one couple (50+ age) was made to stay in staff quarters for one night which did not even have an attached toilet. The staff seemed to be unapologetic, not realizing this was a big big mistake. Totally deficient services. Only good part is the location of the hotel. I seek a partial refund from the property.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Walkable distance to the old city, it is in the list of the hotels where the Bein Harim Tours can pick you up, the room was comfy and clean.

Close to anywhere, everything else is a lie

The amount you pay through internet and the guarantee of booking confirmation is not respected BY them - they always ask for more money otherwise they won't let you in. It happened to me, to other guests that I witnessed checking-in and to all that left a similar review which I ignored because of nice pictures of a hotel. It was indeed pretty to me - but the hotel is super dirty, I have never slept in more filthy bedlinen. I got acne and a rush after few days of sleeping there. Every guest complained about the dirt. I won't complain about the cacroaches found in the room since it's a matter of climate... But the floor and everything else was in a terrible shape. Also, there is no kitchen and a veeeerryyyy small lobby, where the internet works (no internet in rooms AT ALL AND EVER). The size of a room wasn't right- it was not a 20 metres squared space, 15 at most. The owner of the hotel tried to be nice after all and gave me a delicious orange. Even that I must speak the truth so other guests at least won't experience shock.

I usually don’t write review, but this place is a total dump and I had unspeakably unpleasant experience. Rude staff, filthy, no power outlet on entire floor. The only good thing is its location but you can get much better for the same price.
