“A very good Experience”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

After the renovation - Dan Carmel is a must stay.
The bathrooms in the rooms are brilliant, with separate (from the bath) showers that have some cool settings.
The service all round this hotel is slick and helpful.
How do you top Israeli Hotel Breakfasts? Dan Carmel gives it a good go - if not by the food quality (honestly, we did not find any bad food in the array of hotels we visited) by the professionalism of the staff and presentation.

The Dan Carmel has been renovated with style - is is now very elegant and comfortable. The bathroom - in particular - is designed with practicality in mind The room we had enjoyed a panoramic view if Haifa.

Having very recently completed the full refurbishment, it is encouraging to hear how guests have appreciated the changes. We designed the rooms to be as comfortable and practical as we can, with guests needs in mind.

It helped to be upgraded on arrival! But that apart, this is a smart outfit. In the smart part of Haifa, in Carmel, this is a hotel with a long tradition but being reinvented for the new modern times. Our room was overlooking the sea, and had a very comfortable decor. Fresh fruit and chocolates make a good impression when you first arrive and lots of Dead Sea toiletries in the bathroom were very welcome. The separate shower and bath were very nice and provided ample room too. The breakfast was good - lots of fresh produce, a good variety of options and the offer of eggs as you like them. We didn't eat in the hotel restaurant but it looked inviting (we had other reservations to keep).
Staff were extremely friendly and offered every assistance - and it seemed like they meant it! When our transfer was messed up the receptionist arranged a car within minutes - all the way to Jerusalem! And she checked the price so that we could be sure what we were in for.
The spa was not so special. The pool was closed for the season (odd as it was very warm outside!). The spa itself seemed a little dated and could do with some updating.
I'd thoroughly recommend this hotel for the location and the comfort, as well as the service.

Loved! Loved! this hotel!! The rooms were nice size, very clean, luxurious and just eye candy for the international traveler!! The view of Haifa and the port from our room was memorable especially at sunrise. Beds were very plush and comfortable. The bathrooms were very luxurious with TV in mirror to view while enjoying a bubble bath. Excellent shower and water temperature. We only stayed 1 night here and my only regret is that we couldn't stay longer!! We walked to the nearby neighborhood bank and shops from here, and easily took a 5-10 minute taxi down to the German Colony to enjoy dinner at a local restaurant. Hotel also provides a beautiful breakfast buffet. Very memorable stay!! YES, I can easily recommend this hotel to friends and family and hope to return here for a longer stay!

We were touring Israel with a group of 50 and everyone loved our two nights in this hotel. All our hotels in Israel were 5 star, but this one stood out as the best. Some said it was the best they had ever stayed in.
Recently renovated, our room was large, modern and spotless. The bathroom was spacious with the toilet seperated by a glass door that matched the shower door. We had a large flat screen TV, but a couple of our group said they had a hidden TV in their bathroom mirror. I didn't believe them, but later found out they wern't having me on. The new carpet felt luxurious and the king sized bed very comfortable. Everything was there that you would expect in a 5 star hotel except tea and coffee making facilities.
There is a great view from every room, the sea on one side and the sea, harbour and city on the other.
The staff made us feel most welcome, were friendly, courteous and helpful. No complaints about their food either.
Loved this hotel and would recommend to anyone staying in Haifa.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the city.

We stayed in a renovated room on the sixth floor with a balcony oerlooking the port of haifa. The room was luxurious and had many amenitites. The outdoor pool complex is beuatiful as is the breakfast room overlooking it. Breakfast was plentiful. The best thing about this hotel, though, is the service. Every person from the bellman to the housekkeping staff was kind and helpful. Really extraordinary. The free wifi in the lobby was truly appreciated. The hotel has parking underneath for a fee. However, when we drove up, we were directed to a free lot a couple of blocks away, much appreciated. There were some negatives, however: our keys deactivated several times. At first we were told that this was due to proximity to a cell phone. Finally, a staff member admitted that it was really due to ongoing renovation (hopefully this means that this is a temporary issue). Another issue was the lack of ventilation in the bathrooms and the slippery floors therein. The shower has a slippery floor and the hand hold is inadequate esp for an elderly person. Finally, althoguh beautiful, there is another minor issue with bathroom design. Toilet and shower share a wall and there is transparent glass between them! Ok for single travelers but kind of a strange set up for others. These are minor issues however for what was a truly wonderful hotel
