“Enjoyed our stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2011

My wife and I visited Israel to stay on a Kibbutz ,a lifelong ambition of mine. During our visit we decided go to Eilat travelling from the north to the south of the country and most important following the route of Lawrence of Arabia across the Negev desert to the fort of Akaba. Very exciting if you remember the film and didnt manage to lose my wife en-route. We booked into the Americana for four days using it as a Base and meeting friends from Siberia. Short stay but nice hotel with some great facilities (the pool for example). Breakfast was good but clearing the tables was not always a priority if you wanted one. Very friendly and helpful Staff. Eilat is a very expensive place where some items can break the bank. However the Americana was an oasis(excuse the pun) of reasonable prices.

Room Tip: The rooms overlooking the pool were good. It was not noisy even with some school groups.

When we arrive we grabbed a hotel baggage cart to take our luggage to our rooms. The security at the door wanted us to leave out ID so "we would return the cart." This is typical Russian nonsense (as my wife explained to me). They also give you cards to exchange for towels at the pool. If you do not return the cards at checkout they charge you $10 per card. We have stayed in many hotels all over Europe, Canada and the US and never experienced this sort of petty nickel and dime crap. The rooms were also substandard. The breakfast, however, was pretty good.

My relatives stayed at this hotel while I was traveling with them across Israel. The hotel is in dire need of renovation - everything in it: from the unhygienic pool to the poolside umbrellas that occasionally may fall on unsuspecting guests. The rooms, the dining areas, the food were not very pleasant. The service lacked consistency: most front desk staff were nice, but the security was unreasonable (even for Israel). They were guarding this shabby hotel like it was a gathering spot for foreign leaders. The wacko head of security (nickname Uzi) needs to be let go - if he is still there. He annoyed visitiors by day and groped his girlfriends there at the door by night.... Very unprofessional.
But this place is affordable by Eilat standards - so if money is a concern - go for it, live there, it will be OK.

I was on a shoestring budget when I took some time off from a temporary work placement in Jerusalem to travel across Israel. I looked for a room somewhere between a hostel and a luxury hotel, and I found the Americana. It was by far the most reasonably priced hotel in Eilat.

It was exactly what I expected: reasonable accommodations at a reasonable price. The breakfast is traditional israeli-style and on most days I ate a late breakfast that also served as my lunch.

The pool was nice, although I did not spend much time there because I was wandering around the beach, which is a short walk away. The staff was friendly and the room was neat and clean.

I highly recommend the Americana for travelers like me---don't need all the bells and whistles, just a place to stay while you explore a new corner of the world. It's totally no-frills, and that was just fine with me. So know what you're getting in for and you'll be satisfied.

Ideally located hotel just a short walk to the beach and shops. Nice friendly and helpful staff particularly Adina and Denys at reception. Room was cleaned every day and towels changed daily, Good air con and large a T.V. in the room. Comfortable bed and cleanliness levels high. Pool and SPA facilities good. This is a basic hotel but has more to offer a traveller who really wants to explore Eilats restaurants and other sites as it is centrally located and unlike the huge 5 star hotels isn't all inclusive so you get chance to see Eilat and not be tied to one hotel for your entire holiday! I would definately come back to the americana next year!

The hotel is a simple very place for accommodation. It is cozy, nice and for the most part quiet. the rooms are average by size and quite clean. The rooms are small, unless you pay for the P/V supplement, and then you might consider a better hotel for a similar price. The beds are quite comfortable as well.
The pool is small but nice, the small jacuzzi and tiny dry sauna located at the SPA are nice as well (and it's free).
The service is good and the staff provides very good attention. It took them less then 10 minutes to fix the T.V. from the moment I called.
The food level is far below average and it's the biggest downside of the hotel. I wouldn't eat anything other than breakfast there. Other than that the neighboring hotel is sometimes noisy but most of the rooms are not exposed to the noise.
In conclusion: Clean and cozy rooms, good service but no WI-FI (common among 3* and below in Israel), and mediocre food at best. Good value for it's price level.

I stayed in this hotel with my husband and 2 year old son in January for this year. We paid for 5 nights but only stayed for 3.

I would strongly recommend against this hotel and would rate it as a 1 or 2* if pushed. The whole hotel has seen better days. The pool was dirty with chipped tiles, flaking paint etc. We had one of the better rooms overlooking the pool and it was filthy. We had to lay towels and blankets over the carpet as it was actually sticky with dirt. Tiles were hanging off the wall and there were fag burns on the furniture etc.

The breakfast was inedible and we are not fussy people. Most mornings there were no bowls or coffee. Allot if the food was not appropriate for breakfast time and was obviously reheats from the previous night.

The one good thing about this hotel is the location, a short walk to the shops, beach and harbour.

There are so many nice hotels in Eiliat, - give this one a wide berth!
