“Strong Positives - Major Negatives”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2013

Positive: The room was clean and quite nice with a well appointed bathroom.

Negative: However, there is no place to unpack so our suitcases stayed on the floor. The hotel does not have an elevator so you climb 19 tall steps to the 2nd floor and there is no one to help with your luggage.

Positive: The hotel is located on a fabulous street full of restaurants and cafes. In addition, the Bahai Gardens and a tourist info center are a short walk away.

Negative: Parking on the street is extremely limited. I was not told about any parking lot.

Negative: The hotel does not provide an on-site breakfast although it is included in the price. Breakfast was provided at a very plain cafe down and across the street. The breakfast options, while adequate from a quantity standpoint, were rather limited and strange from a western taste perspective. I fully understand that I am not in New York City, but I have extensive world travel experience and normally, there are some western-taste oriented options for breakfast.

Bottom line: I would not stay here again. While the room was more than reasonable, the lack of a reasonable breakfast on-site, no elevator, and the parking situation all tip the scale to the negative.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2013

the room is modernly designed, quite nice. everything is satisfactory, and the location is very good.. however, the breakfast was absoloutely terrible.. you are allowed to choose between three different options, all of which are very dull.. i had the shakshuka, it took 25 minutes to prepare, and we didn't received half of the food we were promised on the menu, and after having reminded them, we were rudely approached. the shakshuka consists of tin canned tomatoes and is one the most horrible ones i've had in my life. all the waitresses lack basic service awareness.

My wife and I stayed recently for two nights at this small stylish boutique hotel in Haifa - business and pleasure
Great location and superb staff - courteous , friendly and helpful (nothing was too much trouble)
We stayed in the "Albatross" room and while there was a lot of street noise ,we accept that is part of being right on the main (and attractive ) heart of the German Colony with a balcony and great views
The room was modern - a spacious attractively furnished room , with excellent bath and shower.Nice supply of bathroom cosmetics Free ( and very fast ) WiFi .
More than adequate breakfast served in adjacent cafe where the service was variable
Free parking behind the hotel was extremely convenient
Minor complaint. Better quality bed linen would enhance the Boutique experience
Would,definitely recommend and would stay again without a second thought

Templars Boutique is a new and lovely small, cosy, hotel. It is located in the lower part of Haifa, in the center of a lovely (and quiet) shopping and dinig area, and very close to the Haifa-white-sandy-beach.
Hotel-stuff is young, very well trained, and very courteous.
Breakfast is served in the garden, under old large olive trees. It is based on fine cofee and a large selection of various fresh-tasty breakfast platters.
Rooms are large, quiet, and very elegant.
The hotel is suitable for loving couples, it is certainly not a place for kids.

I spent 4 days at this hotel and I was blown away by the quality for such a low price. My room was possibly slightly small for some, but I personally found it ideal. Thje style was modern and included lots of nice touches including a PROPER rainforest shower and a robe. I loved the blue "mood" lights in the room. A perfect place to relax after a hard day. I cannot praise the staff highly enough. Despite arriving and departing on very anti-social flights (I arrived at the hotel at 0430am and departed at 0100am, the staff were very welcoming and even took the trouble to call me just before I lft to check if I needed anything. There is no parking at the hotel ,but all the local parking is free and I had no trouble to find a parking space within 50 metres of the hotel. Right onto the breakfast. This is not served in the hotel itself, but instead in the restaurat next door. This is NOT a bad thing! There is a good selection of breakfasts here (which were included in the room rate). I personally fell in love with the shakshuka - a wonderful combination of lightly spiced stewed tomatoes and two fried eggs, served with a wonderful sharp soft cheese, a salad and enough pita bread to choke a camel. It was two days before I realised I was effectivley eating vegertarian! This also came with a hot dink and a cold drink. The price for the room incliuding breakfast was exceptionally low esp. considering the location in the German Colony (a great area) and was significantly lower than hotels of a similiar standard in Haifa. The only minor negatives I can find is that the wireless signal was not strong enough to reach my room and being on the ground floor there was no external view.

Room Tip: The Unicorn room is a fantastic feeling and quiet room, but has no external view and the wireless si...

We elapsed for a romantic 2 night (mid week) vacation. The room was very similair to the detailed photos shown in the hotel's site- which is always a lovely surprise since so often the photos are misleading. We took the Albatrosse suite and could actually see the Bahaian amazing gardens from our small and cozy porch. The German settlement- where the hotel is situated- is beautiful.
You shlould consider though that as this is a "boutique" hotel there arent any public facilities: Breakfast (sorry to say that it was poor) is actually served by the next door cafe, Massage, if ordered, is in the room since there is no SPA (so I had to take a trip while my husband was relaxed..), the small lobby didn't even have toiletes (out of order).
Even so, I liked the privacy and the uniquness of this place - the stone houses and the design of the suite. I certainly recommend it.

I spend few days in this hotel in Haifa, the atmosphere is magic, the hotel is located under the amazing Baha'i gardens and the hotel its self is located in very old building from 1800 something and is renovated and the rooms are amazing and comfortable, the staff is very helpful and i must say this hotel is highly recommended.

Room Tip: get the info where to go from the hotel staff...
