#1 of 3 hotels in Zichron Yaakov
Imagine a place as uplifting for the soul as it is relaxing for the body. A place of understated luxury and utter comfort, where you are surrounded by beauty at every turn - a place that, in bringing together the finest art and the warmest hospitality, brings people together from all over the world to share and experience both. A place built on the belief that when you stay with art, the art stays with you long after you leave. Such a place is the Elma Arts Complex Luxury Hotel. Located atop the hills of Zichron Ya'akov, its elevated position allows for breathtaking views of the Mediterranean. Elma itself is a work of art. And like the pioneers who built Zichron over a century ago, Elma brings something completely new to the world. The vision of arts patron Lily Elstein, it offers an experience that pampers the body as it nourishes the spirit.

Beautiful setting, interesting architecture, fascinating history and an amazing collection of contemporary Israeli art in every nook and cranny of the hotel. Definitely worth taking the tour of the hotel and art collection. Very friendly and helpful staff.

A beautyful location, an amazing hotel complex and very comfortable and spacious room is completely off-set by average housekeeping and very poor service during any meal. Housekeeping has obviously a problem with mathematics as every day either a towel was missing or instead of having two body lotions for two people there were 5 shampoos and no body lotion at all. The food is very good to exzellent. However, the hotel seems to ignore foreign guests as they label the buffets only in Ivrit and not in English. Very difficult for overseas guests. Also, not only do the service staff often hardly or only poorly speak English, they also have no idea of how to serve. Plates are removed before having finished or then not at all. A reference to the manager led to a personal discussion but the impression remained that we as foreign guests were not really understood. The staff is mostly very polite and helpfull. The big outdoor pool was closed (?) and the indoor pool is not heated or at least was cold. The price of the hotel is way above the level of service provided.

We stayed a couple of days at the hotel during the Sukkot (Tabernacles) holiday. Sometime before arriving at the hotel, I reserved the Holiday dinner for 10 guests, 7 adults, and 3 children, according to a price that the hotel rep gave me on the phone. At checking out I found that we were charged more than twice the price that I was given on the phone. I notified the hotel clerk and she told me that the original price that I was quoted was for a “normal”, not a holiday dinner. Since then, for more than a month, I had extensive email and phone communication with several hotel representatives who passed this “hot potato” from one to another. Eventually, I was told by one of them on the phone that the price that I’m claiming does not exist at the hotel although the receptionist herself told me that this is a “normal day” dinner. In other words, the hotel rep claimed that I was lying. The hotel itself is great, the dining room and the food were very good, the service, except for the dining room, was awful. But the worst is to stay with the feeling that I was cheated, that somebody at the hotel made a mistake and instead of taking responsibility for that they prefer to blame the guest.

To be fair the hotel staff did their best to fix the defects but that's almost the only good thing we have to say. We informed that we would arrive late in the evening, the room we received (at an outrageous price of $ 600 per night !!!) was neglected, lacking equipment (seems to have been used to make up for deficiencies in other rooms) and located in kind of a basement ....yes, they did help and fix what they could. Disappointing experience.
