We were staying at the Herods botique for 2 nights between 12-14-/7/2013. The hotel supposed to be the newest among eilat hotels but it definitely does'nt feel like it!
rooms look new but if you look closely they are OLD and NOT CLEAN!! We went into room 581. It was fine, but when we wanted to take a shower – we just couldn't! the shower stank with mold! It was horrible. Later on we were moved to another room where the towels stank and the mold was also under the sink.
started mediocre: when we asked to move a room the first receptionist that answered us said she will first send someone to check it out.. the guy that arrived didn’t know a word in Hebrew or English so we sent him away. He came to clean. Mold is not something you can clean in 5 minutes! So we called the reception again and another guy answered. He moved us to room 275 which was fine and sent us wine and cake which was nice but didn’t compensate for the 2 hours lost. The rest of the service was good I must say.
good breakfast though the whole floor stank with food.
the hotel smells with food everywhere – not a good smell… elevator, floors, everywhere.
no view to the ocean, the view is to Jordan and a lagun which is nice.
fine, takes 5-10 minutes to get to the beach or to the promenade – for us it was a long walk, since you can rent a room at the same price or even lower – on the promenade itself.
We have been to much better hotels in eilat, this one is defenitly not one of them. There are some hotels that are rates here badly but are much much better!
