“Great little trendy hotel, 50 metres or so from the beach”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

Great, querky hotel, staff very helpful. Room very comfortable with almost too effiecent aircon. Food very good for breakfast. Quite centrlly located even thiough it so close to the beach. You can hire bikes FOC, so a good way of looking around. WIFI perfect, chairs in the rooms a little uncomfortable and, well, weird.
Great place in a great city though.

This hotel exceeded my expectations. It is very affordable and a refreshingly trendy hotel steps from the beach. The outside is as inviting as the rooms. My room was a deluxe with Jacuzzi. It was super clean and had everything you need from a fridge to flat screen TV, comfy bed and cute little soaps. It reminded me of a boutique hotel in NYC called "Night". The place looks far more expensive than it is from the solid doors to the modern art in the rooms. The room was nothing short of sexy. The tub had jets, a raindrop showerhead and a handheld shower head. I had two small balconies and a modest limited view of the sea. The bed was comfy and large and the AC was adjustable and always kept the room at the desired temperature. The room itself even in the deluxe category was not all that large but for a single person it was more than adequate. There was a desk, two chairs and a mini kitchen. Almog at the front desk was exceptional. It is very hard to find highly motivated, customer oriented staff in this country and she is a welcome exception. Her friendly welcoming attitude was a plus. The British lady that served breakfast was also very sweet although I can't remember her name. The complimentary breakfast is served in the lobby. It is adequate but not the extravagant variety you may get at some Israeli hotels (like Dan Panorama). I really enjoyed the snacks and free coffee/juice throughout the day. The room is less than a minute from the beach. It is also a short walk to the Carmel Market which is a must see. The area is generally safe although it is in a smaller less circulated street.
The only critique would be the lack of a ramp at the entrance to roll luggage or for wheelchairs but the security staff did offer to help with the luggage.
There is neither a pool nor a gym on property. But seriously, why do you need a pool when the beach is so close? There is also a free mini gym right on the beach (weight machines that use gravity) and plenty of beach to run on for cardio.

Bottom line: this place is ultimate bang for your buck. Solid in all respects. You will not be let down.

Room Tip: If you want luxury and a view pay a big extra and get the jacuzzi room with a beach view.

I stayed at the Savoy off and on for two weeks, using it as my base for a business trip to Israel.

The hotel itself is very nice, the rooms are refurbished, modern, clean and comfortable. Located less than a block from the beach, it is also walking distance from shopping, good restaurants and nightlife. It has a boutique-hotel feel, but except for the fact that there's no restaurant on-site, the services are commensurate with a four-star hotel.

And that's the best reason to stay here. The hotel staff was incredibly accomodating of my strange schedule and requests, right down to the Chinese delivery I was craving while nursing a bad cold. Victoria in particular was unbelievably helpful. Taxis, laundry, help with restaurant reservations, oddball questions about this and that, all were arranged with a smile and great efficiency.

I travel to Israel often for work and this was my first stay at the Savoy, but not the last. Interestingly, the hotel has a history, it was the site of a terrorist attack in 1975 in which the guests were held hostage and freed by the IDF. A plaque on the outside wall tells the story.

Room Tip: It's worth paying for a standard room. The single-standard room is very small, so unless you hav...

This hotel is awesome, we loved everything about it. The rooms, location, lobby, breakfast, free wifi and coffee and snacks throughout the day were all great. The place is immaculate and the service was top notch. The ONLY downside was that there wasn't a pool, proximity to the ocean is amazing. While not on the beach the walk to the beach is shorter than if you had to make your way through a large beach hotel. Don't hesitate, stay here!

We arrived at 3.45 am into a brightly lit reception area with striking black and white decor which doubles as the breakfast room decked with bright white furnishings and miniature plants on all tables. On tap 24/7 and on the house is fruit juice and coffee, snacks and fruit.

Our corner room had 2 small angled balconies with a sea view and which increased the size, light and airiness of a small but tastefully furnished and spotlessly clean room which carried the black and white theme of the decor.

The hotel has free wifi that worked well. Our room although small was compact and the space was used well including a kitchenette with microwave (we did not use this) and plenty wall plugs and good lighting.

The bathroom was small but well designed with shelves and a window that opened but - and a big but, the shower curtain over the bath was too short. This was not only an annoyance but potentially dangerous to be using the fixed hair dryer standing in ankle deep water. Rather than attending to this the receptionist told us to just ask for towels to mop the floor. On our last day we saw the manager and mentioned this to her and she seemed inclined to investigate further.

Apart from the bathroom it is certainly worth staying here as the hotel is also very centrally located and offers a reasonable breakfast. However, the above applied to Saturday. But then came the working week and the construction site opposite noisily erupted, ended sleep and continued to grate during daylight hours!
