Having arrived at about 06h30 following my flight from JFK to TLV, the charming front desk staff enabled me to check in early, just as they allowed me to check out late on my day of departure.
The courtyard of the hotel is very attractive, as is the lobby, as are the accommodations.
Breakfast at the hotel is copious, fresh, quite varied & delicious. Unfortunately I'm unable to say as much about the food served in the banquet rooms on the hotel's lower level (i.e., cheap, unattractive, tasteless food, criminally overcooked, that my dogs would disdainfully refuse to eat).
But as man lives not by bread alone, the substandard banquet food did little to detract from the joyous celebration of a Bar Mitzvah at the Kotel (aka Western Wall) & a non-stop stream of wonderful activities organised by the Bar Mitzvah boy's parents for all four generations of celebrants hailing from Belgium, Canada, Israel, The Netherlands, the UK & the US.
