“Lovely and friendly hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2014

We stayed in the hotel with our two kids.
The hotel is small and nice. you have great patio on the roof overlooking the Bahai Temple and nice garden on the street floor.
Breakfast was good and testy in a cozy dining room. The location is great with walking distance to many attractions and restaurants.
Free parking on the streets behind the hotel. The hotel staff were very nice and were happy to help with any questions.
We will defiantly visit again.

Room Tip: we had a room on 3rd floor (i belive 312) was very large room and with jacuzi.it was quiet and facin...

We stayed at the Colony Hotel for a week and were pleased with the room, the surprisingly large bathroom, and the breakfast buffet. The dining room staff and cleaning staff are quite nice and friendly and do a very good job.

We had a great night at the beautiful Colony Hotel right in the middle of Haifa's tourist area. The staff was accommodating and patient with our young children: pullout beds were made up (with chocolates!) when we arrived, they didn't mind that we ate breakfast twice, and they were happy to keep our umpteen backpacks and suitcases for the afternoon. Not cheap, but lovely and easy.

This hotel is very cute-- nothing fancy, but feels boutiquey. Rooms are a bit small, bc the building is old. Location is great, steps away from the Bahai Gardens and restaurants. I'd read lots of reviews here that the front desk receptionist was rude and short, but it's sort of typical Israeli mentality, they warm up with a little chit chat. We also requested late check out the next morning bec I got really sick in Haifa, and they were nice enough to let us stay the afternoon!

Room Tip: Request rooms not on the main street, or at the corner, by the side streets- hotel is near park, whe...

I spent 2 nights in Colony Hotel which is a lovely place: nice building in the most beautiful street in Haifa. The rooms are very comfortable, clean, everything is here to make your stay happy and restful. The breakfast buffet is rich and good. A special mention for Josef at the reception, so kind and rich of precious advises; he helped me a lot for the preparation of my visit of Haifa and the rest of my trip.

We stayed 3 nights in March, exploring Haifa and using it as base for day trips to Akko and Rosh Hanikra. Well maintained "Old Fashion" hotel in a great location. No on premises parking but we didn't have much trouble finding spots on the streets nearby. Great restaurants close by. Desk personnel were very pleasant and helpful. Breakfast buffet was good. Bed was comfortable and there wasn't much night noise to disrupt sleep. Interesting architecture, the place has a distinctive personality.

The Colony is a simple five minute walk from the train station situated on the best street in Haifa. The rooms were very comfortable and the breakfast buffet was enjoyable. We stayed for four nights and ate at a different restaurant every night on Ben Gurion Street. Every meal was superb and there was a nice atmosphere in the area. I would definitely recommend The Colony.
