“Good food, shame about the tiny bathroom”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

Food was good and staff very pleasant, laundry service good. The bedroom was smallish but adequate, but the bathroom was tiny so that in order to get a top on I had to position myself carefully so that one are could go over the basin surface and the other through the gap in the walk in shower.

Were it not for that it would have five stars.

Stayed here for 2 nights while on tour. Nice hotel with a pool. Did not have a great view but I could see a bit of the Sea of Galilee. Easy checkin. Room were clean and spacious with comfy beds. Food was also good especially breakfast. Quite a nice spread. Not much in the vicinity but easy walking distance to shops. Not sure if it's worth mentioning but the afternoons get very windy and the rooms are pretty sound proof, only the occasional whistle through the window panes alerts you of the strong winds outside. Spacious lobby area especially for larger groups. Big TV Chanel selection so there is something for everyone. Overall stay was nice.

Stayed here for 4 nights last week. Staff at reception seemed slightly overworked and rather curt. The rooms are clean and functional. Breakfast was simple but good. Dinner was lacking in quality of deserts otherwise good with varied choice particularly of salads. Bar area is comfortable. Sadly the location is not good for Tiberias as the walk into the centre will take you a good 20 min and the trip back will be all uphill. The pool is small but nice and there are nice views from the terrace area. It was a really good hotel as a base with comforts to boot (pool, bar, lounge). If you are looking for a really special stay you will have to go to the Scots Hotel down town though.

Room Tip: Make sure you are not to close to the lift shafts, have a good listen before you take the room.

We stayed in the hotel for one night - the beds were big and comfortable. The staff were lovely, checking in and out was very quick.
The rooms were clean and pretty spacious.
The breakfast was varied and fresh- lots of fruit, vegetables, breads, cheese etc. - a proper Israeli breakfast.
The hotel is a short drive from the promenade.

We stayed two nights here on a tour of Israel. We found this to be a very clean, well kept hotel, with a very courteous staff. The wait staff in the restaurant was helpful and attentive and gathered empty plates and filled water glasses quickly. The food was good. Our room was clean and comfortable and nicely decoraed. Don't forget to buy your own washcloths or pack some from home. Hand towels and bath towels are provided, but no washcloths. The bar with the outside patio/balcony was nice, and evenings were cool enough to sit out there and enjoy a drink. Remember, you are in Israel and they are not familiar with every American drink.

Room Tip: We were assigned a room; did not have a choice as the reservations were through the Travel Agency...

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. Our room was on the corner & on second floor. It was quite noisy & not very large.
The food was ok and the staff in the hotel seemed pleasant & friendly.
Tiberius seemed a pretty place & I would have liked longer to wander around the area.
It's a shame there isn't a grading between average & very good as this would have been applicable.
