“Excellent, would use again!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2009

Great accommodation, loved the decor and rooms were very spacious. Hotel staff extremely pleasant and always happy to help. I have previously stayed at the Dan Panorama in Haifa which I would definitely not recommend as the Colony Hotel is not only a nicer facility but it is located in an attractive area of Haifa with various restaurants and bars to suit all! The only thing I would say is when arriving at the hotel request a room away from the street as it can be noisy on a Thursday/Saturday! Overall fantastic!

We enjoyed this hotel. it is beautifully refurbished and the location cannot be beat. Excellent food. Remember to ask for a hotel buisness card at the front desk. it will get you 10% off at the many resaurants on the street.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2009

I grew up in Haifa and I am very familiar with its neighborhoods and attraction. After many years abroad I returned for a one week visit with my husband and 1yr old son. Looking for place to stay was actually a bit difficult: we considered the Leonardo Hotel by the beach and heard that it is very run down and way too expensive. Our next choice was any of the hotels on the Carmel and all of them were quite pricey for "nothing special" hotels. Besides, the Carmel area is not the hot spot it used to be 10-20 years ago. Then we heard about the Colony Hotel and what an excellent choice it has been!

The hotel is beautiful, the view is spectacular, the room was lovely and quiet, the breakfast is terrific, and the staff was great and eager to do their best. Most importantly was its location: right by the Bahai gardens, 3 minutes drive to Dado beach, 2 minutes from Stella Maris, very easy drive to the Krayot area, and 5-10 minutes drive to the Carmel. Moreover, Ben-Gurion Ave. is a very "happening place" and the restaurants near by are excellent (especially Fatoush and Nemo). Bottom line, the room price is very reasonable which makes this hotel an excellent value.

The highlight of our stay was a private function we held on the rooftop of the hotel on Friday evening. We invited our family for a get together which turned out to be a memorable event for everyone. The Colony Hotel's rooftop is an amazing place for any event: the view is unbeatable, the ambiance is unique and relaxed, and the food and service were top notch.

I would like to thank Isaac (the hotel manager) and his team for making our stay such a wonderful experience.

We visited the hotel not long after it opened and had a great stay although we did find the front desk staff quite rude when we requested a double bed instead of 2 single beds. The hotel itself is beautiful, in the old colonial style with gorgeous high ceilings and tiled floors. The location is also great as it is set in the very picturesque German Colony with plenty of places to eat nearby and the Bah'ai Gardens in walking distance. The room was a little on the small side but it was tastefully decorated, the highlight being the claw footed bath which we enjoyed soaking in after a long day trekking around. The breakfast / meals area was also really nicely done, clean, modern but still in keeping with the overall feel of the hotel. Breakfast was delicious and the service was great. I would definitely stay here again.

Great location in German Colony which is quiet and has a stretch of restuarants. Also close to the railway station and Nazareth bus stop. Nice, quiet and spacious rooms. Housekeeping standards are ok although attention to details somewhat lacking but no big issue.

The Colony Hotel in Haifa is gorgeous! Newly renovated, wonderful beds, amazing bathtub, our room even had a balcony. Great location on Ben Gurion, plenty of restaurants to choose from, and spectacular view of Baha'i Gardens. Wish they had a private parking lot, but no big deal, street parking next to the hotel turned out to be fine. Would definitely recommend to a friend, hope we can stay there again sometime!
