Shocking but true. The rooms are old, dirty, and very poorly maintained. The breakfast is plenty, but infested with cockroaches, especially if you arrive to the breakfast room as one of the first guests in the morning. The staff seems unmotivated.
Since hotel staffs of many hotels in Israel begin their training / careers at this hotel, In order to secure the best possible future hotel staffs in Israel, the big 4 and 5 star hotel chains of Israel should make a joint effort (venture) to completely core the building and to renovate the Tadmor into a 5 star hotel. They should also get a Swiss trained hotel / school general manager to run it for them. They should however, leave the building structure as it is, because the Tadmor is a landmark of Israel. It would be a shame just to tear it down.
With good will and extensive renovation work, this hotel has the potential of becoming one of the most charming hotels in Israel.
I give the hotel 3 stars in value for money because the overwhelming majority of the hotels in Israel are relatively poor value for money (too expensive).
