I visit Tiberias very often and this is the only place I enjoy
Staying, the location is great and the rooms are so clean and up to date. There is a great breakfast and wonderful and considerate staff. Great find for a great price

Visited this hotel for two nights as part of a group tour. Old, tired and worn is the only way to describe this place. The carpet in the hallways and room was the most disgusting I have ever seen. Bedding for our twin bedded room was king size folded in half. No closet doors, a shower curtain was hung in its place. Included breakfast and dinner buffets were spartan at best. Luckily we were only there two nights.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 days on a trip around Israel on a group tour. The Travel Agency had booked the rooms for our group. A clean smal hotel with decent size rooms.
We found a buffet breakfast provided with a lot of food but mostly middle eastern. The buffet dinner were quite good. But there were always too many people in line. The waiters were notgood at English and some time it were quite diffecult to order.
The Our room keys for mostly everyone in the group did not work ton arrival and every afternoon on our return to our rooms some of us had to queue to have them reprogrammed!
The hotel is quite far away from the city center. One have to go down for around 20 minuttes (and up hill on the way back).

We liked our stay very much
Rooms clean food tasty and staff were friendly and helpful
The only thing to bare in mind is that it's a drive away from the Kinneret but we had a car so it was 5 minutes drive

There is little appealing about Prima Too; at best it is adequate.

Management is hopeless. We were travelling with 16 friends on a privately organised tour. Our room keys for all of us did not work every afternoon on our return to our rooms and we all had to queue, every afternoon, to have them reprogrammed. On our initial arrival my wife and my room had not been cleaned at all. We had been given a dirty room, unmade bed, with wet towels on the floor. After some discussion we were given a new room. Apparently they had given the previous occupant a late check out but had recorded the room as being cleaned. Management gave us the distinct impression that they didn’t know what was going on.

The shower was fine with hot water and reasonable water pressure, the air conditioning was good, there is an in room safe and a bar refrigerator. The hotel has single beds only. There is no in room jug/kettle for coffee or tea. Rooms have signs of significant wear and tear (ah, well you are in the Middle East). You cannot sit at the desk which is far to low for the standard height chair.

A buffet breakfast provided a lot of food but mostly middle eastern. Buffet dinners were quite good.

The hotel has a spa and sauna but on our arrival they were absolutely filthy and we had to ask to clean them. In time they did but this is such a basic thing; to have your advertised amenities clean and ready to be used by guests.

Overall Prima Too is adequate for a short stay provided, if a couple, you don't won't to cuddle in bed.

We could not recommend the hotel.

Room Tip: Best idea would be to look for a different hotel.

Clean hotel with decent sized rooms. The staff were extremely helpful as we have booked and payed for four nights and needed to change to two nights as passports were stolen and needed to go back to Tel Aviv to embassy, and they refunded the money, let us use phones, internet etc
