“Perfect hotel for us”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2014 via mobile

This is a very small hotel on a private street. The ambience is very pleasant and the staff is quirky and fun. It is located in the old part of the city so if you are looking for glitzy ocean-front this isn't the place for you.

They have a very nice breakfast and lovely common areas. Free on-street parking.

We used it as a place to stay before and after a trip to Petra as did some of the other guests we met.

All-in-all a lovely budget-priced hotel.

We stayed for two nights and would stay again. Service was friendly, rooms were clean and not too small. Price was good and location great. The counter staff were helpful. Used as a base for a day tour to Petra in Jordan

We liked this nice little hotel, away from the big resort hotels but within walking distance of good restaurants and shopping. The room was small but clean and comfortable. Staff are nice and helpful, and the breakfast was good. There was parking right next to the hotel.

The proprietor was friendly and helpful, the room was smallish and basic, but clean, updated and restful. Breakfast is continental, with cereals, breads and rolls, in a pleasant dining room. My giving this 5 stars is based on researching other hotels in a Eilat, and choosing this one as having all the right features for a moderate price ( moderate for Eilat!). It is a little hard to find, as it is on a street that does not go through to the main cross street. You have to go around the block on the next street over, and approach from the other side.

We stayed in the hotel for three nights. The lady on reception was really very friendly, the room was not big, but clean. The same with bathroom. Free wi-fi is a big plus. Breakfasts were modest. The hotel is located within 10-15 minutes walk to the center of the town.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

We were staying at Blue Hotel in the beginning of October and booked 2-bedroom suite.
When we; arrived we discovered that this 2-bedroom suite located actually in the basement of hotel with no proper windows in it.
The suite is rather big, has a kitchenette, every bedroom has 4 beds.
The bathroom was not very clean and I have found mop and bucket stored in the shower cabin.
So I've got impression that these suite was using as a storage when it was not booked.
Considering rather high price of that place we definitely were expecting something more than basement accommodation.
Hostess of hotel first didn't want to change this suite to some other rooms, but when it turns out that despite we booked 2 nights she booked only one night for us she gave us other rooms for the same price.
Other rooms were OK, clean and renovated, but layout of the rooms could tell you that this hotel was actully standard motel some time ago.
Also may be worth to mention that hotel located at 40-50 minutes walking to the beach, not 10 minutes as it said on the hotel site.
Breakfast was OK.Comparing this hotel with other hotels we were staying in Jerusalem, Tel-Aviv and Haifa during this trip I could say that Blue Hotel is rather overpriced.
