Very disappointing, far from what it promises to be. Location is good if you are seeking the upper Carmel neighborhood feeling. Reception staff was a bit snappish. Elevator doors would only open half way on first floor, we never used it again. There are four room types. We were upgraded to a suite which is in fact a large and... More

Small, charming hotel with a european feel. Up high on Mt Carmel, catches the cooler Mediterranean breezes. Great cafes, bars, and restaurants in walking distance. Staff was very friendly and attentive. Nice restaurant downstairs with an outdoor dining area and delicious fare, especially the Israeli breakfast. Room 11 was large with a small balcony and full size bath. This hotel... More

I recently traveled to Haifa on business and a colleague recommended the Villa Carmel Boutique Hotel to me. It's a tiny, 15-room, renovated building, so don't be expecting a big fancy hotel with lots of amenities. What you do get is a lot of charm, a friendly staff, and a great location from which you can walk to restaurants, bars,... More

We've stayed here just 1 night while visiting north, and as other reviews sad, we've expected a 5* boutique hotel. The Villa is very nice and the family the runs it very helpful & friendly. However, it does need a bit re-fresh and maintenance, e.g. elevator is quite old, the paint is pilling off, shower cabin liking and the shower... More

This 1940s hotel has been restored with great attention to detail. It is on a quiet residential street, within easy walking distance of several small restaurants. You can also walk to the Bahai Gardens, which takes you through and area with more restaurants, shops and hotels. We arrived early, and while we received a very warm welcome, we were not... More

They've managed to screw up pretty much everything in the <12 hours that I spent there: 1) The hotel lists itself as a 5-star property with most agents. When in reality under star rating criteria it doesn't stand a chance to go over 3. The rooms are extremely small (12 sqm at most) and there are no facilities what so... More

Hello Sir, First of all we were sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your stay at the hotel but we must point out some of the reviews you mentioned: - the room that you stayed at was the standard room (the room that you booked through booking.com) is the smallest room that we have at the hotel. - The...

Great location, wonderful friendly staff, and a charming, offbeat antidote to the "different city, same hotel" syndrome. Definitely gives you a slice of life in the best possible way. It had all the amenities of larger hotels (including money exchange at a good rate), a wonderful breakfast, and spa facilities (which I did not use.) No pool, if that matters... More

Before arrival we had great expectations. What we found justifies a 80$ (in this case I would rate it much higher) and not 270$ per night as we paid. The place is neglected. Where shall I start? The bathroom's mirror was dirty. Repairs that were done with different materials than the original. We didn't get a laundry bag. The breakfast... More

Disappointing . Nice quiet neighbourhood would seem to be main attraction of this hotel but interior decoration of our room - which was quite large, was awful - dark brown walls and carpet , not very good lighting - very depressing I counted five different materials - concrete finishes and wood and various tiles in the bathroom - poor lighting...
