Crowne Plaza Hotel Haifa

Reviewed November 24, 2006

This hotel is on Yefe Nof rd (Panorama rd) on the hill above the bay. You come in on floor 9 and your room is DOWN from the entrance.

The hotel is beautifully decorated, loved our "deluxe" room on the 8th flioor, no balcony. One wall is all glass and you look out over the panorama of the bay, spectacular view, ever changing. My photos do not do it justice.

Very comfortable bed, and you can order a feather pillow if you prefer. Good bathroom, strong shower. However, you have to ask for shower cap and all the little shampoo bottles etc, they don't provide them.

There is a tea/coffee making stuff in the room. The floor is laminate (more hygienic in my eyes).

Note that there is public parking underneath the hotel which you have to pay for. You get a discount as a hotel guest but we paid 35 nis for the whole day (you can enter and exit as many times as you want).

The only problem with the hotel was perhaps the breakfast.
Breakfast: Not enough staff (no hostess to seat you and oversee things); salads, butter, and croissants that ran out were not replaced. The readymade juice was off and the scrambled eggs were inedible (plastic?).
However, there was plenty of food to choose from at the buffet, you could make fresh citrus juice yourself (fruit and juicer provided), and you could order eggs to be made specially for you, from the waiter. Also, the fat content in the white cheese is labelled (much appreciated).

I would stay here again, just for the view and location near the center.

Note that right opposite the hotel is a good El Gaucho (steakhouse, with the view)
On the right of the hotel (facing the entrance) and down the steps, there is a young people's pub, loud music, noice, smoke, etc. On the left is a lounge-bar, quieter, view, couches as well as tables, very nice, called Rojo or something similar.

The hotel is a very short walk to the Carmel center where there are malls, restaurants, stores, cafes, Carmelit subway to get downtown, Cultural center etc.

IN ANSWER TO COMPLAINTS IN 2 PREVIOUS REVIEWS:
1. No meat at breakfast
There is rarely meat at an Israeli hotel breakfast, (and never, if it is kosher). Instead there is a range of cheeses, veg and fruit, cereals, yoghurt, fish, breads, cake, quiche etc
2. No washcloth in the bathroom
Israelis do not use washcloths - bring your own.
(Israelis might use sponge or loofah but consider it a personal item and bring their own, as they bring their own toothbrush)

We were there April 23-May 3. We thought we would have a view of Haifa Bay, but our room had a large tree that obstucting the view of the bay, making the view naught. Had to request face cloths everyday. The nights were cool and the hotel had turned off the heat for the season and we got sick with colds.
If you expect a breakfast with real meat forget it! It is Kosher all the way, with fish the only meat served.
The staff were friendly and spoke english and were helpful to call taxis when you asked. Be sure you understand if your room rate includes breakfast or not.
The bathtub was not for people who have limited motion with their legs. The height of the tub makes this a problem.

Quite disappointed. Despite the nice views, the walls are very thin and we were woken three separate times in the middle of the night by noise from neighbouring rooms. The rooms are also quite small. Breakfast is plentiful but no fresh fruit and no decent coffee. Basically, a dull chain hotel with little character and surprising thin walls. I would look for an alternative on another visit.

Good central location and great views. All the rooms overlook the bay, I don't know if you can get a bad one. The single rooms can get a bit small (why a king bed for a single?). There's a business district a few minutes walk away, which is good, because the hotel restaurant isn't great (room service meals are really bad). Staff is actually friendly, though service was typically Israeli (it took an hour and a half for our rooms to be ready on check-in, even though the hotel was nearly empty. Countrywide, this seems to happen.) They let us keep one room for a late check-out (7pm) for no extra charge, as our flight left late at night.

This Hotel is the best in Haifa. Make sure you get a Balcony. We payed for breafast but in order to 'upgrade" to a room with a balcony we had to give up the brekfast.

The view from the balcony is great. room servise during saturday is verey very limited ..

It is a good choice for Haifa.

Very nice, clean, pretty new hotel. Great views of the Haifa bay. Walking distance to the Bahi Gardens and stores in the downtown. Decent kosher for passover food. Nice small but pretty pool. Room is a little small. Would stay there again.
