There is a pool and sauna which are opened only certain times so its not so convenient. Lots of youth bus groups who are very loud and block the...

Nothing special I can say with the exception that rooms were clean. We already knew when we left from other trip advisor reviews that air conditioning doesn't work and that when someone in another room closed a door your room wall would rattle. This in fact is totally accurate. Breakfast was just so so. But for the price we got...

Travelling KLM and as a result of a cancelled flight I ended up staying here overnight. Location is not much to write home about as it is located between the airport and the city which is reachable by bus. Nothing immediately near the hotel. Appears to be popular with coach parties and I saw a number of school parties who...

Highschools in Israel are sending their pupils for an one week trip to Poland, exploring sites of holocaust and wiped out jewish life. I accompanied my daughter's school as pediatrician.

Dear Madam, Thank you very much for your comment. We are really sorry that you did encounter inconvenience in our hotel but the opinion we are inhospitable is highly unjust. We do accommodate a huge amount of different types of groups during the year and we simply need to protect the interests of our hotel by establishing a fee for...
