Just a weird situation to make a hotel room out of the mamad room,,,,
Toilet seat was broken,,
No one cared for you,,like an non existent,,,,
Fabulous location right on the beach”
Very good modern hotel located right on the beach. Lovely pool and area. Good facilities. Secure parking. I would return. Recommended
Good location, that's all”
Only location, nothing else
This hotel is very old-dated. Rooms are totally basic. Not 4½-star at all. I needed to go to reception 5 times cos my card to room was not working. After 5th time they gave me key. Also, rooms were not kept clean. My sheets were not changed the whole week, although I asked. I know, because I marked my sheets with eyeshadow ;0) But, location is good. You can walk by beach bulevard to Jaffa and everything is quite close.

The hotel is nicely located right on the beach and very close to restaurants. I picked this hotel partly because of the swimming pool. But it is not open until 10.00 AM and I am working during the day so basically when I get back, the pool is closed. The pool looks nice on the pictures displayed on the website and is actually much smaller than it looks. The restaurant has a really nice view over the ocean and an open air space as well. My room is said to have seaview and I can only see the sea from the side of my room. One highlight is that it offers free international calls to some countries though I didn't always get through. Still quite a plus for international travellers.
Great hotel with good service and location”
Service,Location and beach
Just great, highly recommended !!
Great location, not-so-great staff”
Location, Location, Location!
The front desk staff had some attitude. I asked if I could please have a 120V/240V adapter, so I could keep my smartphone charged, as my charger is only for North American outlets. The girl at the front desk said "No". I complained that it's very important for me to have my phone be fully charged. Then she reached into a drawer and pulled one out. Why did I have to ask twice, and feel like she's doing me a favour?
Also, they had a sign on the front desk posted with the exchange rates to get shekels for USD, pounds, and euros. I requested to purchase some shekels, and they said "No" - again. Their favourite word. No shekels available. That sign? Just there for decoration, I suppose. Or certain times of day. If they had no money at that time, why leave that sign up? So I had to hunt down the street to find a place to exchange my cash.
I'll be back!”
Location, rooms, view.
-Very nice view (side view). Upgrade balcony with front view
- Nice room for the money!!
- Professional fitness (also entry for non-clients of Orchid)
- Free bicycles.
- Close to the beach (1 street between), to the centre, to the shopping and to the nightclubs.
Contra's : breakfast = 25 USD. Quite expensive compared with the food prices in TLV.
Nightclubs : SOLO is the best. Cat And The Dog is more alternative (techno).
Most clubs closes already at 4am. But you have afterparty's.
The Pussycat is a very big and professional stripclub. Nice to check it out once. 500m from Orchid.
It was exactly the kind of vacation I needed. ”
1. Location 2. Internet 3. Comfortable Bed
Overall, I had a good stay at the Park Plaza Orchid Hotel. The only issues were some of the fixtures seemed outdated, for example the light hanging from my room seemed to be slightly pulled out, so some of the wiring was exposed. The tiles in the ceiling bathroom and the room itself were warped and bit out of shape. I can see how some, or those with high hotel standards would have had issues with a room like this, especially at a cost of over $200 per night. The free land-line was a welcome service that I actually used, but it too had issues as the cord to the phone had experienced some heavy usage, so my phone call was a bit "static-cy". The staff was solid, though I can not apply normal, Western or U.S., standards to their customer service; therefore the service was just "good enough" or solid. When I asked a question or had a concern, my concerns and questions were answered and executed, though I can not say the staff was overly friendly. For example, in the U.S., at a price of over $200 per night, many hotel staff members ALWAYS smile and greet when entering or exiting the facility, I can not say the same occured at this hotel.
Comfortable, attentive staff
view, fun & set-up
It was a fun experience with friends & family.. the view, the food & the experience is superb.
quality of finishes in new rooms excellent. ”
on the sea, staff approach to solving reservation problem
like a home”
location, food, kindness
Good but not more than this”
be aware if you are an israeli citizens, even you mark the box you are form israel the price you see is not the price you will need to pay, you need to add the vat even you can get the same price in other websites without adding the vat.
Good location and good facilities. A little steep for the quality.
Breakfast (though I would have been happy to have less and pay less); concierge
My mother and I moved out after one night. The first room had no cold water or working toilet because of remodeling in an adjacent room. The toilet in the second room malfunctioned. That said, the second room was an upgraded room and much nicer. However, we would have had to move yet again not only because of the toilet but also because it had a king bed and I needed twin beds. (Please note that in terms of the breakfast, the hotel provided it to us without charge in light of the problems we had. So my comment above applies only to the extent that we had stay ed for our full visit. In terms of my comment below on location, it is only because we were at Icholov Hospital most of the time and it was not convenient to it. But would not be the norm.
it was ok but a bit expensive for the offered quality. room was small and i,m not sure that we had a really superior room. it was quite basic
nice hotel located centrallly, nice staff”
location, staff, amenities
