We are a family of four and spent one night at the Akkotel in Acre this past October. We had a corner room on the third floor that slept 4. The room is laid out such that there is a large queen sized bed on the main level and loft above with two individual beds.
The room was clean, the beds were comfortable, and the shower worked well. As mentioned in another review the traffic noise was louder than expected, and there was a wedding celebration in the park adjacent to hotel that had music throbbing loud and long into the night. While this is hardly the hotels fault, I suspect this is a popular spot for weddings.
The loft area that our children slept in had a very low ceiling, so low that my 12 year old daughter who is about 152 centimeters tall (about 5 feet) had to duck to use the space. My son, who is much taller hit his head once and found the space frustrating.
Our biggest frustration with the hotel was the fact that the free in-room wifi they advertised did not work in our room. What compounded our frustration was the attitude of the staff who blamed it on our devices (iPads). THat was far from true however as I could use it fine if I went out in the hallway and stood near the closet where they had the wifi router. I could actually see the signal strength slowly disappear as I approached the door to our room. Wifi was available in the lobby, and I suspect it works okay in the rooms closest to the elevator. When we asked the hotel for a small adjustment on our bill due to this issue they indicated that they could not do so since we had booked through booking.com. This was a new revelation to us.
There is also a nice roof access that gives you a good view over the city. We went up at night and then I went back up in the morning to take some pictures of the city from there. I wish I would have seen it in full light first as there were a lot of pigeon dropping on the railing around the roof and no doubt me put our hands in them in the dark the night before.
Breakfast was fine, but certainly nothing special.
