Decent plays to stay in Tiberias

Posted May 17, 2017
Pros: Clean and quiet.
Cons: The wifi signal was uneven. It worked well in the lobby and near the elevator, but not in our room
Location: There is decent access to Northern Israel from Tiberias if you are driving. Tiberias itself seems somewhat less interesting
The hotel is about a 20 minute walk from the downtown area; the drive is shorter, but a bit roundabout. The hotel facilities are relatively pleasant. The price of the room seemed high relative to the amenities. Staff were pleasant. Overall it is a decent place to stay, but without the distinction of special location or amenities.

What to expect from this hotel

Posted Apr 30, 2016
Pros: Food View of the sea of galilee Friendly staff - once you get to know themj
Cons: Rooms Internet Correctly state distance from hotel to centre of Tiberias.
Location: About 25 minute walk to the centre of town, with loads of tourist attractions, Jewish and other. Several beaches and water sports
The main issue with Golan Hotel is the lack of Internet/wi-fi. These are stated as free, but are virtually impossible to use in normal hours - I did have some success at 4.30 am. We chose rooms with balconies on 3rd floor. These have not been renovated for some time, go for the rooms on 2nd floor, recently updated. Other issue; cleanliness round the pool. Most guests were Israeli or French, in big groups, with kids who dropped food and wrappers everywhere the adults did not clean up either, and many added to the mess with nut shells and cigarette stubs. Pointed this out to pool staff, no action taken for several hours. Very few staff spoke more than a few words of English. Hotel site indicated that the distance to the town centre was 0.7 miles. In practice, it is about 1.5 to 2 miles, depending on how the centre is defined. Downhill walk to town, steep uphil back to the hotel; bus or taxi recommended, as there is perpetual traffic on most routes and the taxis know how to avoid this.

Practical hotel, willing to learn !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted Apr 29, 2016
Pros: Practical
Cons: I gave them a short list of small things. They said they'd act upon it.
Location: Tiberias is a good HQ for visiting the Galil and Golan, and has some night life.
Double booking problem solved without fuss. Parking is a problem, so I suggest always use taxis. Not walking distance from town center, unless you have time and are willing to walk uphill. No washcloths !

Looked better on picture than actual

Posted Feb 14, 2016 on Orbitz
I would not stay at this hotel again. When I booked online it looked much better. The rooms have a smell of mold. Only one person at check in that is busy with phones and guest at the same time. Keeps on running to the back office while waiting. It felt as a bed and breakfast place more than a hotel
