I stayed 4 nights on business. It felt as if I was a guest of an old country home with a very well maintained jungle-like park. The hotel is right across the Israeli embassy - I am not sure if I feel safer or more at risk when security is so tight... but once you are on the premises it is an idyllic place, way different from the impersonal modern hotels - and I prefer this. I stayed in the main building. I loved the doors, bed, the desk, the armchairs - all made of beautiful wood and leather, combining traditions with modernity. The staff is lovely, everyone is very helpful and always smiling. Our meeting went without a flaw. Breakfast is very nice, lunch is also ok, with spice added to the traditional dishes by the guest chefs who were there at the time of my stay.
The main building rooms seem to be the oldest, which of course shows on the tiles, etc. but all very well maintained. I visited a colleague in her pool-side room where everything is much more modern. I discovered that I could get freshly brewed coffee from the breakfast bar long before I wanted t have breakfast so I chose that over the nescafe which comes with your room (so does tea of course). The park is actually not that big but the way it made up gives you the feeling that it is much bigger. It has nice sitting area, pool, restaurants. I did not try the gym but a colleague went and said it was absolutely fine. A few colleagues stayed in the apartment buildings surrounding the main area. It seemed a bit further - like a 2-min walk and plus 2 security gates - but they did not complain about anything else.
