“could be better, could be worse”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2013

The entire street around the hotel is under extreme repair for blocks--so getting there is an adventure. Parking is difficult to get to and costs 20 shekels a day, though once you find it you are right below the hotel. The hotel has 16 floors and you will not notice this from the street, as somehow only about 3 stories are visible. One of the employees described Hotel Theodor
as a 4 star business boutique, but whatever it Is, it's low down on Haifa's mountain so at least you have a chance of taking a walk without a Sherpa. The views on all sides are pretty spectacular. Breakfast is okay, not lavish. The rooms are small but adequate, appointments remind me of early south Beach.

Room Tip: pro: all the free cold drinking water you can use con: you have to get it yourself from a pipe in...

Israel has some strange set ups for Hotel locations. This time, the Hotel was fully marked from the outside but once entering, instead of a lobby & reception, there was a long corridor with other businesses in it followed by a lift at the far end where you had to attempt to find where to check in! The reception was part of a vast lounge area which seems to be a sort of Jewish custom in which to congregate to watch people? We have never worked out why. The rooms were quite upmarket but there was no food apart from tea making facilities. You paid for parking underground. It was a good central location

Good points:

1. Decent hotel
2. Basement parking
3. Nice view from the room
4. Restaurants & stores nearby
5. Good location to begin exploring the city
6. Staffs generally friendly & helpful but alternated with a little indifference

Bad points:

1. Parking not free

This is a hotel which entrance is inside an office building complex but it was sufficient when we stayed there for our needs.

This place is a dump. Has an apartment building feel to it, with really dirty bathrooms (disgustingly dirty, with other people's hair kind of dirty), noise from the corridor and adjacent rooms (you can hear TVs and other noises).

The staff are what makes this place come through - a bunch of great, very friendly people.

Breakfast selection was pretty poor - at 40 NIS, I would call it pretty pricey.

Will never repeat (should have known better because of the price, but for a 1 night stay, I'll survive).

The Theodore should probably be considered one of the newest hotels in Haifa as it was totally refurbished a year ago. The staff are very helpful, professional and the management is very attentive to needs and keeping the hotel up to shine. The area is no longer the center of Haifa but the views from nearly all rooms are fabulous. It is on convinient routes for getting in and out of Haifa easily and there are plenty of interesting spots within walking distance. Great value for money - you can enjoy yourself and relax here!

I stayed in this Hotel during a business trip.

This is a very decent 3-star Hotel, with a good price-quality ratio. Nothing to write home about but overall a good offer for budget conscious travelers.

The Hotel is located in a tall building in downtown Haifa. It occupies some of the higher floors of the building, sharing the space with a small shopping center and office services. This means that when you first enter the Hotel (especially late at night, when shops are already closed) you might find the space a bit awkward. Nevertheless, when you finally reach the Lobby you realize you are in very good hands.

Check in and check out were fast, efficient and friendly.

The breakfast was OK. Not many choices for some items (e.g. only one type of bread to choose from, only 2 types of juice...) but overall the food quality was good.

The Lobby had great views and enough space.

The rooms were average sized and very well cleaned, with great views. the furniture was good enough, even tough lacking some "glamour". Reasonable choice of satellite TV channels, and free and fast wireless internet.

The rooms were very quiet, but there was noticeable noise from construction work on nearby streets until late in the night (at least midnight). This noise did not stop me from falling asleep and I assume it will be temporary, but more sensible travelers should take this into account.

There is very convenient underground parking in the Hotel building, costing 20 NIS per night.

The Hotel is located downtown. It is 10-15 minutes walk to the German Colony, where there is a large choice of trendy bars and restaurants. The area around the Hotel is less interesting, but still safe enough and with several shops.

Overall the Hotel was very practical and welcoming.

this was an attractive hotel, very modern and stylish, with lots of books and artwork. it occupies the 11th to the 17th floor of a skyscaper in the Hadar district. it is a bit inaccessible up a couple of flights of concrete stairs, although once we checked in, we found we could get back to street level by pressing minus one and walking through an underground carpark. the views from our 17th floor room were stupendous and the breakfast was great.It was close to the port and we were able to get a taxi to Ha Shamona Railway Stationa and get a direct train to Ben Gurion Airport. We also took a local bus to Akko , the Crusader port, one of the oldest ports in the world. We returned with a sherut, a local shared taxi. too
