The Colony Hotel Haifa

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 9, 2013

This hotel is a concept - namely from the moment you are at the front desk you feel as if you are the only guest , they accept you as a dear family member that just came for a few days .
So you get a huge room. With all that you really need , including fast HF .
This is the only hotel so far that paste near the shower explanation as how to use properly the cold and hot water ....
This is a room to enjoy , the standing mirror, the floor . and you can sit on your own veranda and watch Haifa by night ( as well duriong the day ).

Room Tip: All of them

The hotel is right downtown on the central tourist street-. The room was clean and we heard no noise-- The hotel itself is very interesting because it was built in 1905 and renovated very nicely recently. The breakfast was very good and the staff made me scrambled eggs-- as a special request. The staff at the front desk was helpful particularly in terms of travel information. Last but not least across the street is a good restaurant where we ate three times called: Stroudel.

Room Tip: We got our room on the 4th floor and we liked this. However, from what I saw other rooms on other fl...

You awake in the morning to a stunning view of the Bahai gardens, then go downstairs to a full Mediterranean breakfast of humus, pickled vegetables, breads, pastries and biscuits, dried fruits, olives, coffee, tea and much more, which you may enjoyed on the front porch where you can watch the many merchants of busy, centrally located Ben Gurion Street come alive.

You check your plans, directions and "must see" locations with the extremely helpful and knowledgeable staff of The Colony, and then spend your day enjoying the unique mixture of the modern and historic that defines the character of Haifa. Along the way you can't help but to be impressed by the cohesiveness of Jews, Arabs, Christians, Bahai's and too many visiting nationalities to mention living peacefully together. Of course, you stop to pet or feed several of the city's numerous cats that are present on every corner.

When you return in the evening with a broken "Fanny Pack," Hava at the front desk provides a sewing kit to stitch you up for the next day (and makes you feel like it is not a foolish tourist cliche to carry a "Fanny Pack" in the first place), and if you need to hang your hand washed cloths, Gilbert strings you up a tight line in a safe place. Joseph is ready with a band-aide and a joke to mend your cut finger ("Just leave your finger and when you return it will be good as new"), and if all of the excitement keeps you awake into the wee hours, just wander down to the lobby where Ben will prove to be one of the best conversationists you will ever meet. And no review of The Colony would be complete without mention of the breathtaking view from the roof, where you can watch the sun rise and set on your perfect Haifa vacation.

Room Tip: Request a room with a view of the Bahai gardens and shrines and each day of your visit will begin an...

For the fourth year in a row, I stayed at the Colony Hotel Haifa, and for the fourth year in a row, I remained highly impressed. The room was clean and comfortable, just as I expected, and the staff was as friendly as ever. In addition, I had the opportunity to enjoy a wonderful dinner on the hotel's rooftop with breathtaking views of the Baha'i Gardens and all of Haifa around me in every direction. The service and food was amazing, and the staff really knew how to create the perfect atmosphere with everything from the music to the decor. As always, I'll be back to Haifa and the Colony Hotel very, very soon.

Very well run hotel in an excellent location, Ideally located to explore Haifa. We had a triple room which made the room a bit cramped but still comfortable.. Staff were very helpful, breakfast very good. I would not hesitate recommending this hotel to anyone visiting Haifa.

We had always stayed on the Carmel in Haifa but had recently heard that the German Colony was a fun area. We needed a kosher hotel and the Colony fit our bill perfectly. Already on the phone the staff was incredibly friendly and helpful and we were not disappointed on arrival - on the contrary. We had a beautiful room with a free-standing bath and more important, a wonderful view to the Bahai Temple. The breakfast was excellent. Our only regret was that the hotel could only accommodate us for one night as they were full up. We'd go back any time.

Room Tip: We had a room with a gorgeous view, especially at night.

Friends recommended the Colony so we went there for a 2-night break. The room was beautifully furnished, the staff at the front desk couldn't have been more helpful , recommended places to visit and how to get around, breakfast had a great variety of foods and was delicious. We will definitely go back again.

Room Tip: Try for a room with a view - either of the sea or of the Bahai Gardens
