The Colony Hotel Haifa
Ranked #8 of 28 Hotels in Haifa
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 January 2013

We arrived in Haifa without reservations, and when we turned up the street at night and saw the amazing view of the Ba'hai gardens lit up at night, felt lucky that there was a vacancy at this hotel. The rooms are quaint but modernized and spacious, the hallways are gracious, and the 4th and 2nd floor porches are relaxing. Breakfast in the hotel was great, there are many nice restaurants surrounding the hotel, and the street is fun and lively at night. We had a fantastic time on New Year's Eve in the street party and watching the fireworks. The staff was friendly and attentive. This place beats any large chain hotel in Haifa, in style and location.

Room Tip: Our room in the back was very nice. We would try to get a room with a balcony next time.

If you have business in Haifa, Israel and need a good hotel with friendly staff and reasonable costs, then I recommend the Colony Hotel Haifa. I found the rooms extremely well laid out with robes etc., and a balcony which was excellent for viewing the surrounding neighborhood. Beds were extremly comfortable and very quiet.

Room Tip: I don't really know if they had a pool or a fitness center as I had no time for that but everyth...

Stayed at this hotel in September 2012 for our honeymoon. It is in the prime location on the strip across from many cafes and restaurants. The staff was amazing and friendly and often remembered us by name, especially Simon! The rooms were clean with great amenities including robes and slippers. The daily breakfast was delicious, especially the waffles. We Would definitely stay here again, we Loved it. It was a perfect honeymoon!

This boitique hotel is located at the heart of the Templers colony in down town Haifa. The location is great and you can find many restaurants and caffe shops on the same street.
The hotel itself is very nice looking. Situated in a house which is over 140 YO and was renovated in the last decade. Rooms are nice and worm but not spacious. Service is good and the staff is helpful and friendly.
Overall, this is a good option for staying in Haifa.

Yes, I am coming fromTel Aviv.
We were looking for a different place to stay in Haifa - not in the fancy big hotels on the top of the Carmel mountain, and decided on this hotel.
Most of the things were great - very good location, very beautiful building, great and friendly staff, good breakfast and yes, the WiFi did to connect to the Internet until the staff did reset the network.

The one complaint I have is that the room, which we stayed at was no sound sealed and there was a lot of noice from the outside.

Bottom line - go for this place!

Great location, hotel is situated in a very nice street ornamented with the Christmas trees and shining Hanukias. From the terrace on the 4th floor you can enjoy Bahai gardens view, especially impressive at the night because of bright illumination. There are plenty of restaurants every five meters. Staff at reception is very friendly and helpful. We have got useful recommendation and even followed them. Nice breakfast with big choice of salads and fruit. Beds are comfortable, rooms are isolated from the street noise, which provides good sleep. Highly recommended for different kinds of travelers.

Okay, it's not the Ritz, but a Ritz or Hilton would be out of place on this charming street in the old German Colony section of Haifa. The rooms are well-equipped, comfortable and quiet, and for a small hotel, the breakfast buffet is bountiful. The hotel staff are very helpful. The rooms have a one liter bottle, and when we asked where we could more nearby, the desk clerk just smiled and said, "I'll give you more!"

There are quirky things, like a small lobby and one tiny elevator to bring your luggage from the street to the main lobby where a full size elevator goes to higher floors, but if appreciate older hotels, they won't bother you. You are walking distance to restaurants and the awesome Bahá’í World Centre and gardens.

Room Tip: If you are sensitive to noise, ask for a room off the street -- there are plenty.
