This hotel is very central in town and has a wonderful view over the sea. The breakfast is good. The rooms are a bit small, but the service is good. You will have get a secure parking place next to the hotel if you come by car.

This hotel reminded me of a old beach hotel in the east coast of the US. Plain, slightly damp and outdated, the real beauty of this hotel is the location. We had a beach facing room and were able to watch the sunset each night. The hotel is right on the beach promenade so you can walk for miles in either direction. The "city center" is only a block away so you can take your pick of restaurants and convenience stores. Everything is expensive so after paying 100 US for a very average meal our first night (granted, we were limited in choice because it was Saturday and we did order a bottle of wine) that we opted for one meal a day in the room. There is a small fridge so getting cheese, crackers, hummus, etc., is cheap and easy. The breakfast is pretty bad be prepared for bland bread, bland salad, some other one note breakfast foods and really bad coffee. We tended to go out for a real coffee at a nearby cafe instead.

The room was alright but the maid service made it a GREAT room.
The room was alright but the view made it a GREAT room.
The location is fantastic and to fall asleep with the true sounds of the waves from the sea (not a sleep machine) was great! The stores, shops and the beech were just a few steps away.
But to be so far away from home in a new place, not understanding the language and other problems I faced, this man DUKE at the desk saved my life quite a few times. now I am back home with my sleep machine to help me sleep. Residece Hotel I miss you.....

Excellent value for money- best location, clean and nice rooms. Rooms facing the sea have a breathtaking, million dollar view. Good variety of food for breakfast.
The only con- the hotel reserves € 70.00 on your credit-card just in case, and releases it only a month after your stay in hotel. no-one mentions it to you beforehand. I found out only when I was back home and took my credit card statement.

I would like to thank all staff of this wonderful hotel. They work truly professionally.
All people on reception are well informed and do their job perfectly.
Clean room and bathroom, plenty of closet space with built-in safe, pretty good sound isolation,
tons of hangers for clothes and clean towels in nearly new condition. View on the sea from the room is incredible as you have glass window from the floor to the ceiling.
Buffet - served in a bright dining room, with plenty of food and great choice of coffee.
4 minutes from the beach, literally (even if you walk with 2-year old!)
Playground just behind the hotel.
Great atmosphere

Netanya in my opinion, has a special charm that I haven't found anywhere else and The Residence is in the midst of it all. The sea is right out the windows. It's a short walk on the wonderful promenade to the beach elevator and so close to the main kikar(square) where everything you could need or want is right there. The first class mall, equal to any in the US, is a bit further as is the bus station which gives access to anywhere in the country!

This is an older hotel of 3 star quality, but the staff make up for any shortcomings in the physical facilities. The service was excellent throughout, cleanliness of the rooms was great and breakfast was fresh, varied and plentiful. For a hotel close to the town centre and ideally located for the lift to the beach, it is hard to do better.

We had a rear view room although other family members had sea view rooms. the sea view rooms were larger but probably our bathroom was better, it had a shower whereas the other rooms had shower over the bath.

Overall, it worked well for us, and would be recommended if you can overlook the age of the property. you'll be guaranteed a warm welcome and great service!
