We have recently returned from a stay at the King Solomon Hotel which is listed as four stars, and we can only assume that these stars are in the sky!
The outside of the hotel looks as if it is stuck in a 70's time warp and when you enter the hotel it is confirmed. The furniture looks like it has come from Habitat and is clearly very old and tired.
We were given a key yes a real key not a security card to enter our room and that is when we decided that we simply couldnt stay in this hotel. The furniture was white mdf with the carpet not quite fitting properly and we had a small balcony (with a wonderful view of Netanya) but both of the chairs on the balcony where broken and we were unable to sit on them. They were replaced but the chairs they gave us where not suitable for a balcony.
The tv which was on the wall was an old computer screen!
The bathroom was so small that only one of us could go in there at any one time. It was decorated with small mosaic tiles that were cracked and clearly had been decorated back in the 1970's. One night because there were a lot of people staying and using the hot water when we returned from the beach we had no hot water and so couldnt shower that night.
The staff we believe have been employed since the 1970's and were old and had an attitude that to us was unacceptable. However the hotel manager, did try very hard to help us and he gave us a basket of fruit and a box of chocolates to say sorry.
We spoke to a number of guests staying at the hotel and without any doubt they told us it was probably the worst hotel that they had ever stayed in.
The position of the hotel is fantastic very near to everything and the building itself has great potential. It does have a swimming pool, that had all black bits on the bottom and all of the furniture was broken and soiled. The bedchairs were heavily stained and for that reason we did not use this facility. Also the pool closes at 6pm sharp.
We would therefore suggest if you are thinking of going to Netanya to either go to the Seasons hotel which is very near to King Solomon or hire an apartment.
Hope this review is helpful
