Located behind Dan Panorama Hotel aside the landing strip of Eilat airport, at the beginning of Eilat Hotel Island, Dalia Hotel is right in the touristic part of the city. It is used often used by locals and tour guides to sleep over night in order to be on time in the early morning either to fly back to Tel Aviv or pick up groups or be on business, and in general by local workers that need a (relatively) cheap bed to crush on for a night or two.
The homepage of the hotel is:
There are several misleading pictures there. The building is not attracting as it is not the interior design of the rooms with basic cheap furniture. The hall is crumbling with strapped sofas and my bed was quite uncomfortable. Low quality mattress, and cheap linens. I got the impression that they cut expenses on basic facilities. The hand soap in the bathroom together with a particularly too intense scent, was as aggressive to my hands as if I had washed them in bleach. Blankets and pillows were quite dusty. Bed linens looked of a cheap fabric: too smooth to be satin, so uncomfortable.
Service at the reception is between ok and rough. They do not care too much. You can get free purified tap water in the hall, but you have to get your cup from the room. Breakfast could have been fresh probably at the time of the opening of the hotel: nowadays, it is just additional trash: inedible to say the least. Hard-boiled eggs, bleach-smelling tomatoes or unwashed ones (you get some choice after all), raw cucumbers (up to you to chop them), stone-hard bread. Selection of cheap cheese.
There is no elevator. Proximity to the airport shall not be a problem as air traffic is shut down from 10pm to 6:30am. More problematic instead is the proximity of the main street, where it is unavoidable not to hear buses or heavy trucks during all day and night long, so that sleeping might be a good wish at some point of the night.
Generally dirty. I found an apple core by one of the sofas in the hall and several long hair everywhere around the staircases. I also found dirty windows in my room. The hotel has a pool, and a dining room, and nearby there are several other dining options as the hotel is located in the shopping/touristic area of Eilat. Yet there in general, restaurants are expensive and not so good. Better to move on the other side of the airport, and look for something in the "true" part of the city.
A possible option for a cheap accomodation for a night. On the other hand for sure I would not reccommend it for a holiday in Eilat. Too low quality and low comfort for my standards.
Ask for a room, on top floors on the back side (off the main road)
