“Good place to stay for sunrise at Masada”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

This is a basic and clean, if over-priced, place to stay if you're planning to do the sunrise hike to Masada.

It's nothing special (which could be said of all of Arad--no reason to venture here except as a jumping off point for the Masada experience!) and very dated but the staff are friendly and helpful and it was a clean place to put our heads for the few hours before our very early rise to see the sunrise.

Reviewed 26 January 2014

the building and the position of this Hotel is ideal for the area,but the run down atmosphere is quite depressing, the place looks non to clean, the towels are a shade of grey and paper thin,the staff have a take it or leave it attitude.add to this the oldest television I have ever seen in a hotel of this price range,
there are much better options in Arad,

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the road at the front are very noisy from early morning

I stayed at Inber hotel in November, the service at reception was excellent! At the reception desk was the clerk Rima that gave excellent service and was very nice.
I got to the hotel late and my dinner was waited for me in the room's fridge a packed lunch, I went downstairs and asked to warm it, Rima took my dish and heated in the microwave that has in her office.
The next morning I went down to the dining room and there was plenty of fresh salads and a variety of dishes. The food was delicious. The waiters offered us hot coffee or tea.
In summary, the rooms at Inber hotel are few small but certainly provide the required.The food was good and the service excellent!
I would definitely recommend friends to stay at Inbar hotel.

Room Tip: The rooms on the sixth floor are pretty and very comfortable for staying You should request a room...

We only had one night there while on a pilgrimage. The hotel was clean and we were glad to have a clean bed to lay our tired selves. We arrived late, after dinner was closed. The Hotel management had food for us, very cold and no microwaves to warm it. We were too tired so swallowed what we could and went off to sleep. Very small bathrooms in most hotels we stayed at in Israel - is there something I need to know about this???
Enjoyed the town view from the frontage of the hotel - nice, organised and clean. We thought it might have been nice to spend some more time in this town.

I stay at Inbar 2-3 nights every month during week days for business trips to the south.
It is definitely not the best in Arad but it is positioned right at the town entrance and near a nice shopping and restaurants center.
The rooms are tidy and comfortable but restoration will do good (must replace the TVs to flat screens).
Breakfast has variety of dishes, fresh vegetables and is served kindly.
The swimming pool is very small and the salty water pool is out of order for a long time but the sauna is very good.
The best rooms are at the top center but the WIFI is not covering there so one has to get dressed and go down to the lobby for surfing.
One that reads this review could note that there are "goods" and "bads" on each issue and that is the summery, everything this hotel offers has some compromising.

Room Tip: The best rooms are at the top center

This hotel was chosen by the tour company I used so I had no control over choosing another hotel. It was in a shabby, dirty part of Arad. The hotel needed cleaning outside e.g. windows and the whole area of pavements etc., Room was a good size and they now provide tea/coffee making facilities. Remember to take a universal plug with you (!) for the bath. The breakfast was adequate but the "British" food which should have been hot was barely warm e.g. eggs. Would not stay there again.

We searched for about a month for a place near the Dead sea for our easter trip, and this was what we could find available. It turned out to be very expensive for the 9 persons, since not only was the double rooms 200$ / night x 3, but we had to pay 50$ extra x 3 rooms to have a small couch opened up.
It is close to Dead sea, so easy to get here after a day at Masada and the beach.
They did recommend a very good place (a nearby sports bar) for dinner, which we all loved, including all children.
