My wife and I stayed here for one night. Maybe if we'd booked longer staff might have shown more interest in us and our comfort, although glaring 'details' in attitudes and housekeeping suggest management could practice a bit more effort.

Firstly, we were not even asked if we needed a hand with our luggage. We were just given a key, and shown the elevator.
We had to then get staff to fix the window that would not open.
At no time did staff show us any room features or functions until we asked.
We were not told about the roof area until we found a sign while we were waiting for a taxi at our departure.
When we asked the front desk if there was one thing we must be sure to see in Acco, we were told nothing beyond, "all of it", which simply evaded the question.

There has been some effort in interior design, but various things are getting a little shabby, need a bit of simple sprucing up. The room colour schemes are a little curious: dark floors, beige walls which simply make the rooms look smaller, and rather drab. They need lighter colours to add more size and uplift.

Breakfast was OK.
Overall, the staff seem a bit tired by the whole tourism business, and it shows.

this boutique hotel is right at the edge of the old city of Akko. The hotel is the result of extensive wonderful renovations to a building that has served multiple purposes over the years, and the hotel is actually in the city's old stone walls. The hotel owner was warm and welcoming and very helpful. The parking was free and only for the hotel guests and this is a wonderful thing to find in Israel, especially when you are staying in an historic district.

Akko itself it quite amazing. The different attractions that are completed (as in restored/updated) are very well done. You can see additional work being done in other areas that will also be an asset in time.

we stayed at the hotel for one night between friday to saturday and had a very nice time. the renovation is extraordinary and the hospitality was really warm. the hotel is really centrally located in the old city and the quality of the hotel is indeed high as would be excpected. however, for the price we would except some more: coffee facilities in the room, cappucino for breakfast without extra charge, a late cheqeout on saturday. overall we had a good stay and liked the placeand recommend the hotel for future guests

Ancient building was cleverly restored into this interesting hotel space. Immaculately clean. Attentive staff. Good location. Walk to all sites. Easy access to Haifa to the south and Galilee. Would stay again.

Thank you for writing, "short to the point". Indeed Acre was known as the capital of the western Galilee, it is close to Rosh Hanikra Grottoes, Nazareth, Haifa, Sea of Galilee. Welcome again

We absolutely loved this hotel! Just staying there and learning the history of the building and appreciating the thought given to each detail in the five years it took to renovate by the two families that own the Akkotel, was an Acco (Acre) experience all by itself. Stepping in to the lobby we immediately felt at home and we were greeted warmly by one of the owners, who, by the way, had stayed on the phone with us for at least ten minutes guiding us to the hotel. It is a bit tricky to find by car without a map or GPS. We all spent several minutes taking in the beautiful decor and the rooms were equally as interesting and very well equipped and clean. The breakfast was beautifully set out and delicious and the atmosphere in the dining room again was so inviting and beautiful. LOCATION! LOCATION!!!!! You simply could not be in a better location. If you arrive by car, you can park (there is monitored parking) and never have to worry about driving to the sites. All sites as well as restaurants.are walkable and what fun to be right in the old city.
The family was very helpful with suggestions, directions, anything that we needed!!
We would definitely recommend this hotel, actually we already have told all of our friends that it is worth going to Akko just for this hotel. On the way out the door yesterday we all told the owner that we'd like to move in!!!!!

On our trip to Israel we have stayed at 5 hotels in different towns. All were about the same price or cheaper than Akkotel. And all were better. On the plus side Akkotel is centrally situated,has secure parking and pleasant staff. As one would expect in a hotel at this price it has wifi. The rooms we had were large but as with the rest of the hotel all brown and fawn,with heavy old looking furniture. The net curtains and the shower curtains looked creased and grubby. I realise they probably weren't dirty as the room was spotless. I also appreciate that the attempt was to be authentic, but the result was charmless and dreary. I know that decor is a matter of taste, but the main problems with the rooms were the outlook on to a stone wall and air conditioning units and the street noise which was not shut out by the double glazing. There are no tea or coffee making facilities in the room but there was a fridge. The breakfast was adequate but not as good as in the other hotels. I would rate this hotel as just OK, but 225 usd a night not good value.
I am left wondering how this hotel acquired a TA Certificate of Excellence for 4 years running? Maybe TA staff can explain?

Room Tip: Ask for a room which does not face the Main Street and is on the top floor.
