Stayed here for 4 nights on business this week, and probably won't stay here again if in Haifa. There were just too many 'niggles' to make it a truly enjoyable experience...
The reception staff were friendly enough, but it turned out that we weren't allowed access to the Business Lounge (despite being on a business trip); well, we were allowed in if we paid an additional $35 per day...really guys, this access should be standard - I only wanted to log on for an hour or so to sycn my laptop
The 'service' at breakfast was disinterested at best - we were asked if we wanted an omelette...both me and my colleague ordered something different, and when the 'omelettes' came they clearly weren't what either of us had ordered. When I asked the waitress for some clarification, she just shrugged and walked off.
Upon returning to the hotel early one afternoon I tried to go for a swim in the indoor pool, only to be told that it didn't open until 16:00...this is despite the fact that there were several people already in the pool, but apparently they were on a 'special deal'...thanks for the brush off!
The girl who was working behind the bar was nice, though...really friendly and at least made us feel welcome for a couple of hours.
As I said, this was the first time I have stayed here, and it might well be my last...
