Great location to make as a base for touring the Upper Galilee. The hotel itself is small and simple, but clean. The staff is pleasant. Breakfast is very good and plentiful.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2009

The name has changed -- now called "Savion HaGalil". However the 2005 review is otherwise accurate.

I was here because of the proximity to the Agmon Hula. I wanted to get an early start -- this is the closest hotel -- about a 10 minute drive.

Rooms were small, relatively clean. Everything worked well -- toilet, sink, shower, TV, etc.

Paint was old, and faded in some areas. Door would only stay closed if locked with the key -- we observed this in the room next door also. Another annoyance -- the TV was mounted on the wall at an angle that made it impossible to view the TV if you were sitting on the bed. The room had no chair -- thus the only way to watch the TV was to stand up. This was not a huge problem -- I was tired from a full day of hiking and was planning to get up at 5 AM the next day.

Breakfast was surprisingly big and hearty -- lots of vegetables, cheese, olives, etc. They made custom omelettes for no extra charge.

Be sure to eat dinner at Abu Salah next door -- excellent Middle Eastern food.

  • Liked — proximity to Agmon Hula + breakfast
  • Disliked — shabby paint, problem with door locks

2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2005

we stayed at the hotel for 2 nights.
it is a good place to start a trip everywhere in the north of Israel.
the room is basic- relatively small, has a tv and a shower.
it needs some repair- the carpet was torn, the light switch didn't work well.
breakfast is very good- a lot of vegetables, chees, cakes,...- we enjoyed it and the good service.
for the price- 30$ for a person, it looks o.k.
