This hotel is uniqe by the philosyphy of the rooms and transportation (instead of elevators) to the hotel attraction & room.
More likely "little bangkok"..with tok-tok that take you whenever you need.
nice hotel with nice staff and good food.
the problem you need to take a taxi to the center of the city and its cost 10$ each way.
unless you come for diving at the shore , so the hotel location is the best.
enjoy Eilat..our small "Hawai"..
Have a great vacation and take care
Sassi

Room Tip: close to the pool, in this way you can walk and no need to take the "tok-tok" each time...

When we came to orchid hotel in Eilat it was like a magic. At first, great welcoming and huge care.

Every second was just for us. From the moment we woke up till the night - the hotel did everything to make us feel like king&queen!

The room was A++ and the service was one of the best that we had.

Thank you orchid 2012!

Dont og there. The service is lousy and you Will not feel comftable. They are rude and really dont know how to treat paying customers. Spend your money elsewhere.

Location is fine. But this is not a fivestar hotel more like a bad tree Star hotel.

Not bad for a mass tourism magnet. Generous food, nice pool, good rooms (mezzanine very handy for families), lovely red sea views, surly staff, steep hills partly managed by a fleet of lawnmower golf buggies driven by bored lads and droning on til midnight. Come here for an easy weekend experiencing the mass Israeli market.

We stayed with wife and two kids in family room (well, we are still here). Furniture old and all in scratches. Lots of holes in wallpapers. Bathroom equipment looks old and dirty.
Cleanliness is far away from perfect (which is must for 5 stars), twice they forgot to place hand and foot towels.
Once room was invaded by ants, but that was quickly fixed by service with use of some chemicals.
Maybe it used to be 5 stars hotel long time ago, now it a shame to offer it under any category - rooms simply requires full reconstruction.
Staff if friendly and location for Eilat standards-based is great - comparing to all hotels in the sity, which straight under airport's landing path and far away from good beaches. Breakfasts are ok with good selection and all is fresh. But for example chairs in breakfast area are dirty and pigeons flying around are not the best addition to the food.
The bottom line, for visitors expecting 5 stars standard I would recommend to look for something else.
