My husband and I stayed at the Leonardo Hotel for 4 nights this June, basically because it's the only Western-style hotel in the city. There were no real problems, but it just doesn't impress as a 4 star hotel. The lobby is large and empty, not very welcoming, although it seems to work well for Orthodox couples who seemed to be having first dates in the rear section. Our room was clean, decently furnished and perfectly functional, but nothing special. The cleanliness of the exterior floors (the halls, elevators, common spaces) was notably lacking, as there were items left on the floor of the elevator for days and food in the hall without being picked up. I suppose much of this can be chalked up to the fact that the hotel caters to religiously observant families who have major events there. The weekend we were there no less than 10 Bar Mitzvahs were announced in the lobby. That's a lot of work for the staff. The breakfast, however, was terrific: all the fresh Israeli vegetables, yogurts, cereals, herrings and sweets that anyone could want and an omelette station. Best suggestion: stay there during the week, because over Shabbat (when the Bar Mitzvah's happen), the place is mobbed and there is no where to sit at the pool.
