Alert to Madison ownership, the potential of this property is being wasted. This hotel is literally 1/2 block from the beach, and only a short stroll to the Nahariya boardwalk and Ga'aton shopping center. I spent 4 nights there with my wife.
Negatives: this is a tired hotel, in desperate need of a re-fit. Ownership unfortunately employs some staff members that don't care about it, or its guests. The rooms have an early 80's decor, and carry a slight mildew odor. Caked on grime was visible in the bathroom, particularly in the shower. The bed was uncomfortable, and more akin to sleeping on plank board. No swimming pool on premises. No spa or gym. One particular desk employee (Shani) carried a typical "get lost" attitude that was prevalent in Israel 10-15 years ago. When a visiting friend asked her to call up to my room from the lobby, she refused. One evening when I asked Shani for ice, and she gave me the pitifully lame excuse that "the hotel ice machine was broken". FYI – a little while later, I got my ice from another employee. I guess smoking cigarettes and chatting on her cell phone were more of a priority than hotel guests. She’d never make the cut in other establishments and deserves to be booted.
Positives: most employees were not like Shani; indeed, some were very helpful. The rooms were large and had small terraces that had magnificent views of the ocean. A small fridge was in the room. The location was superb if you’re into beach sun & fun; and it’s a short walk to restaurants/shopping. The breakfast was abundant, with excellent variety. Free Wi-Fi in the room.
Some advice - if you have a choice, be very cautious about staying here. Ownership has lots of house cleaning to do - with both the staff and the facility.
