Haifa is a collection of neighbourhoods located on the hills of Mount Carmel.
In May 2012 I stayed two weeks @ Hotel Marom which is located on the Rommema hill. The Carmel center & Bahai gardens and the Carmel beach are all easily reachable by bus (running also on Sabbath). The Grand Canyon mall and the Horev shopping and night life area (the main one for young people) are even within walking distance (15'-20' walk). The commercial Hadar and the downtown (where the German colony restaurants are located) are also reachable by the same buses but it takes a longer time, so take a cab.
From Haifa it is easy to visit the Galilee and the Golan heights; small distances. Rent a car, leave in the morning, return in the evening.
The family running the hotel and their personnel were very friendly and helpful. Their Israeli breakfast is very good (try the date honey). There is wireless connection in the rooms, you need a tablet or a smartphone; it would help to have a terminal in the lobby.
I am surprised by the low price given the very good value offered.
