The Colony Hotel Haifa
Ranked #8 of 28 Hotels in Haifa
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 June 2013

Most of Haifa's hospitality is up on the Carmel Mountain. On this recent trip, we chose to stay near the port of Haifa in the old German Colony. The Colony Hotel is a terrific find. The renovated colonial-era building has large rooms by Israeli standards, many/most with jacuzzi tubs. The location is fabulous for viewing and appreciating the Bahai Temple and for walking the and experiencing Haifa's most interesting food experiences just up the street. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Parking was available around the back. A good value and highly recommended.

We stayed at the hotel for a weekend in May 2013 for a convention. We had a great time. Excellent hospitality and service by the hotel staff, great atmosphere in the charming street and surroundings. The hotel is located in a lovely old building that has been tastefully renovated while conserving the architectural style of the original construction, rooms are comfortable and pleasant. Good value for money in an excellent base for exploring the lovely city of Haifa. Warmly recommended!

There was a huge sigh of relief when I stepped into my room in Colony Hotel after a 13 hours flight including one transit and an hour drive from Tel Aviv to Haifa - this is a very pleasant, elegant choice of accomadation. This hotel was located centrally in the German Colony in Haifa - a stretch of road lined with cafes, restaurants and pubs, right below the Baha'i Gardens Temple. The hotel itself was in one of the colonial buildings renovated with modern facilities ( like an elevator for your luggage) but kept that charm of an early 19th century colonial building with a roof terrace over looking the beautiful Baha'i Gardens and Mt Carmel. The staff at the reception was helpful, friendly and a great sense of humour. Breakfast was decent, provides Israeli style breakfast: fair choice of breads, salads, hard boiled eggs and cold cuts. They have a coffee machine - so decent coffee in the morning.

The rooms are very comfortable , I had mine facing the backyard - so very quiet. The bed sheets are soft and clean ( i have high standards of cleanliness and this place meets that) and one of the best bathrobes - they are the ultra soft ones !! Very quaint boutique hotel - I only stayed there for 2 nights and this was one of the hotels that I will love to not move and stay for an extra few more days!

Really friendly hotel with nice staff. Nice location. Easy to use and for Israel, very reasonable rates. The Israeli breakfast isn't as good as in some places, but then the rates are lower too. We will go back. Parking for your hire car if you have one. theer's no restaurant but lots of places to go for lunch and inner round about.

Room Tip: We have stayed there three times. All the rooms were fine.

I stayed at the Colony Hotel for a night in late April. It is a charming, somewhat old-fashioned place (in a good way). My room was large,quiet and very comfortable with nice amenities, great wifi, and a big bathroom. The hotel staff were helpful. The location is terrific, on a bustling street with lots of restaurants.and an incredible nighttime view of the Bahi'i Gardens. The big Israeli-style breakfast was pleasant and varied. I can't think of a negative about this hotel, except that it was quite expensive, but it did not seem to be out of line for the area.

The Colony Hotel is located on boulevard that rises from the port to the Bahai Gardens, an amazing sight, especially at night, and down the street restaurants, bars and various shops. Definitely the place for a couple looking for romance and a place to go to in the evenings.
The hotel itself was built at the early last century and has maintained the architecture, the hotel staff were kind and always willing to help, meals are built from a mixture of Israeli cuisine with Arab cuisine - highly recommended.
Other than the obvious places in Haifa the hotel have an easy access to markets and trips in which example of Israeli culture.
the hotel have free Wi-Fi and is 5 minutes by bus or taxi from the train station.
Free parking is available near the hotel and the rooms themselves are large and spacious.
Definitely recommended ...

Excellent location in the German Colony section. A short walk to all sites. Easy access to restaurant row. Very clean. Room was a good size. Bed, linens and towels were all nice. Breakfast was good but not great. Would stay again.

Room Tip: No pool or health club.
