From the moment we first engaged in email contact with the hotel last year to the point of checking out, we had a lovely stay at The Melody.
We opted for a room with twin beds which had plenty of space and staff were kind enough to let us have this early as we arrived early; I note another reviewer's comment about lack of drawers - true, but there were shelves within the wardrobe to put things and hanging space for all our suits and dresses! We were on a low floor and could hear the street at times but we weren't in the room enough for it to bother us immensely. The room itself is very modern and the desk with stationery is a nice touch. Kettle and tea/coffee in rooms, no long-life milk.. When reception asked, a jug of fresh milk was provided from the kitchen - fantastic!
The only negative thing we noted about the rooms were the bathrooms. Despite the nice accessories and constant replenishment of tissues etc, they have not been kept as beautifully as the rooms themselves and although the power shower was modern and strong, there were cracks and patching in the bathroom and it was just not in keeping with the rest of the hotel and could use an update.
Breakfasts were delicious and plentiful; the only thing noteworthy is that nothing was labelled so it is harder for those with allergies to know what is in the breads/salads/biscuits/pastries etc. Toaster provided and cappuccino etc available at request from the waitresses who were very friendly. Happy Hour was a great addition after a long day out to be able to come in and enjoy a hot drink, glass of wine or fruit downstairs, in the privacy of your room or on the roof terrace with a beautiful view of sunset. Shabbat candles provided on request, as are yoga kits, jogging kits and beach kits (all with bottled water). It was a shame breakfast was not served later on Shabbat as is the norm in many Israeli hotels we have stayed in.
Staff happy to help with maps, recommendations and advice on request. Another great extra is the free DVD lending library if you fancy curling up with a film in your room. Wifi works beautifully throughout the hotel and it was lovely working on the roof terrace with the sun beaming down!
We really had a wonderful stay at the Melody and would heartily recommend it to others. Oded and all his staff were polite, friendly and eager to please and we really felt welcome at this small hotel.
**on return home I had an email from the general manager thanking us for choosing hotel, etc, and asking for feedback. I was not impressed when the link brought me straight to the tripadvisor page. I would have contributed a review here regardless, and felt that if the manager wanted specific private feedback he could have provided a questionnaire on departure as is the norm in many hotels we have stayed in, or an internal website questionnaire. It almost felt like a fishing expedition for public compliments when I had plenty to give anyway. This does not in any way detract from our wonderful stay and our desire to return!**
