My girlfriend and I checked in mid-week for a short getaway to Eilat. We were on a very strict budget, and therefore, our options were limited. I came across the Rio Hotel through booking.com at a rate of 63 dollars a night- around the same for a private room in a youth hostel. The hotel is centrally located, within walking distance of the airport, central bus station, beaches, shopping destinations, and is even next door to a pharmacy. The hotel has a gorgeous pool open even after dark. Breakfast is served daily until 10:30, a little later on Saturday, I believe. The room was spacious with a small fridge and tea kettle, along with a powerful air conditioner (great for those hot Eilat afternoons). The hotel gives access to tanning beds on the 9 beach, also located within walking distance. The rooms were cleaned daily, and there was even free Wi-Fi in the lobby. My room was directly above the lobby, and the internet was also accessible in my room. All in all, if you are travelling on a budget, do not even hesitate to stay at the Rio hotel. Of course, if you're not on a budget, enjoy the more luxurious lodgings Eilat has to offer
My room was 220- had free Wi-Fi!
