Supposedly recently re-furbished but has the feel that this was done to a budget. Nothing is extravagant but it is clean, functional and works. It is 3 star and delivers to that level.
Most of the hotel's rooms are side facing so have no view to the sea although those on the right side (looking from the front) have windows looking towards the sea. The building opposite (mentioned in other reviews) block much of the view in any event so this is not really the place to stay if you want a balcony with a sea view! There are a few rooms that do deliver that but for 50% more. We had a twin bedded room with very small shower room and kitchenette - only kettle provided but you can get tea and coffee and water 24/7 in the restaurant. Everything worked well including the air conditioning, TV and wi-fi connection which is frree. Anyone large might fight with our shower room so might want a room with a bath.
If you are expecting either an English fry up or a typical continental breakfast you will be disappointed. Breakfast is a typical Israeli affair with a choice of salads, cheeses, yoghurts, a little cereal, scrambled and boiled eggs and bread, butter and jams and fruit. There was more than enough to choose from but if you, like me, cant quite countenance pickled herring and tuna salad for breakfast you lose out. When in Rome, do as the Romans or in this case do as the Israelis and you should be satisfied. The only criticism we would level is that the bread was boring, nearly always only white and pretty tasteless. Some good brown bread or croissants wouldn't have gone amiss.
This was nothing less than superb. Everyone from the lady who cleaned our room, through those in the dining room to those at reception were exceptionally helpful and friendly and went out of their way to make sure we were happy. They provided equally the best service we have experienced anywhere.
It is very centrally located with easy access to the beach and the town and local restaurants. Although parking is chargeable outside the hotel there is plenty of free parking within 10 minutes walk - which is good for you after eating all that Israeli food!
This is a budget hotel and has no pool or nice terrace to sit around on. Recognise it for what it is - good value, excellent service and great location and you wont be disappointed.
