“Some safety concern”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2014 via mobile

Stayed at this hotel for two nights as part of a coach tour, good location and very close to the Sea of Galilee, useful supermarket almost next door, good for stocking up for lunch or snacks. Food in the hotel was buffet style, good choice to suit varied appetites. There is a comfortable bar area with outdoor seating as well as indoor, but the service in the bar area was a bit lax, staff sometimes had to be searched for and it wasn't easy to pay cash for drinks as they never seemed to have any change to hand and had to fetch it from another area, presumably they prefer to charge to the room? Rooms were comfortable although I would have liked a non slip mat in the bath as it got quite slippy and unsafe and I ended up putting a towel in for my own safety which is not really satisfactory. Generally though a pleasant stay.

Stayed February 2014, travelled as a couple

I visited the beautiful city of the galilee Tiberias and was fortunate enough to stay at this beautiful hotel, the reception staff was very welcoming and warm, the room was very clean and the beds comfertable.
The service was fast, satisfying and never comprimising, and the food was ever so delicious.
If anyone is concidering a hotel stay in this area, i would very much recommend and advise you to stay in Prima Galil.

Hi,
Last month I've been part of a group visiting the Holy Land and during our tour in Israel we've stayed in a couple of hotels among them Prima Galil in Tiberias.What I loved about this hotel from the first moment was the great sensation of wellcoming:very efficient bellboy,wellcome drinks and nice and smiling reception clerk.And this is not all,the rooms were very nice and clean,the food was fresh and tasty and included a large selection of salads(i am a vegetarian),the service was great.
This is a nice intimate hotel,ideal for anyone who wants to visit the Galilee and is looking for a nice place to stay and a good value for money.I loved it and I'm sure you will do too!

Just got back from a weekend at this cozy hotel. Cannot express how much fun we had. To our surprise this simple and budget friendly lodging matched our needs – spot on! In walking distance from the boardwalk, serving a tasty breakfast, a view to die for of the Sea of Galilee and the most welcoming staff I've encountered in a long time (THANK YOU Einat & Malek!).
The hotel is clean, tidy, seems to be recently renovated, has a comfy lobby with 2 free internet spots, a wide terrace with a great view and free parking nearby.
Bottom line – we had a blast, and you should to.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony.

Very basic hotel, needs sprucing up and could be cleaner. Staff barely speaks English and is not helpful regarding local tourist information. The bathrooms are a joke as the door opens against the toilet with a big bang, while the showers have a half glass door so the entire bathroom floods. Also if you turn the heat on, cigarette smoke from another room floods through the vents.

We stayed 2 nights at this hotel and I would recommend it as a good base to see Galilee. The rooms were spacious, clean and quiet and the food was good quality, tasty and they serve an excellent Shabbat meal.
