“Impressive boutique hotel in Haifa”
Reviewed February 7, 2013 via mobile

A real shoot of fresh air for the frequent travellers which normally have to stay in the hotels which belong to big chains...
Full of nice small details, chocolates in the room, selection of extremly good teas in the room, all amenities, nice staff, very friendly. Rooms are big enought, nice bathroom.
Hotel is located in Carmel mountain, near Haifa dowtown. Full of restaurants around.
If you want to feel special in Haifa this is the place. For romantic visits do not miss it.

Stayed February 2013, traveled on business

OK, this is small hotel with some 15 rooms, attentive staff, location in a quiet neighborhood close to the street where it is all happening in Haifa. It looks like someones' big house rather, this gives it a nice homey feeling. Good restaurant downstairs. Breakfast till 12:00 (luxury!).
Other that that - the rooms need repair and serious soundproofing. Shower is nightmare to make it work. Hangers were missing in the closet.
I must say staff is very attentive and helpful indeed it is just that some problems are better solved before the guest arrives...

The amazing staff which never said no for any request.
The bar at the restaurant was great as well and they even purchase special bootle just for me..
Hotel location is in a quiet neighbourhood at the carmel area.

we took a day spa which included a massage, a nice breakfast and a room for the day.
the service was great, the rooms are very nice (the hotel includes 15 rooms in total) and the breakfast was great.
a great runaway in the middle of the city, between the houses

We booked a room with a baby. very small. dirty. ants everywhere. The room have seen better days. the decor seems very tired . The breakfast was okay but slow service. the location is nice and quiet. a big disappointment in total. we wanted to leave right away but decided to stay because of the baby and left right after breakfast. never again.

This was the worst experience, and never again.
I have dragged my entire family to stay here for the holidays. We reserved three rooms. Upon arrival there was a bad odor in the entrance lobby of the hotel. The room was smaller than we expected. We have asked for the biggest / luxury rooms, all they could say is that in a boutique hotel the rooms are small...
The baby crib wasn't appropriate for sleeping (instead of a mattress they tried to assemble a piece of carton and a folded sheet) - they insisted that this is the original crib’s mattress…

After a couple of hours we figured out the room is in practice worn out and dirty. I will simply refer to the three pictures taken of the bathtub, the window frame (with a cigarette) and the ceiling.

I can go on and on about the service and how they treat their customers, but that is not the point, the point is that this hotel is not appropriate for any type of stay and I strongly recommend to stay away!

Room Tip: Don't bother.

I love in general boutique hotels but this one is defiantly not. it is more a 3 stars hotel but the cost was very high. they don't even offer mineral water which you should expect when you paying 200$ ++ per night. the decoration saw better days. the balcony was nice, but at night it was very noisy. the bed was too small, and overall we expected for more...
