Recent guest reviews
Stayed here whilst working in Ramat Gan. Found checking in painless and staff were friendly enough. Room was clean and had A/C which worked well. The room decor was a little tired and could of done with an lick of paint and furniture needed updating. Cleaning staff were great. Everything cleaned and tidied every day. Ate at the Champions restaurant and have to say I prefer the food compared to the main restaurant. Breakfast choice was vast with plenty of seating and staff around. Overall a very nice stay.
Hotel is spacious, welcoming and suites are quite comfortable and is an excellent value by Israeli standards. Very clean, comfortable, updated rooms. Staff goes the extra mile. Pass on onsite dining options which are somewhat limited and food was sub-par.
This is my second stay in this hotel and i love it. Clean, large rooms, comfy beds and AC and a good choice of tv channels. Every work trip i have i ask to stay here. Staff are nice, food is great. Place has a gym, spa, pool and can make tge regular average joe feel like a millionaire.
The hotel is fine, the rooms are fine (the beds are lumpy and creak when you sit on them, however.), the breakfast is fine, and all works relatively well. The front desk people are very efficient, helpful, and nice. The big problem with this hotel is the SMELL. They use extremely strong chemically fragranced cleaners on their carpets in the hallways. Fortunately, the rooms do not have carpeting so the rooms are better, IF you request no chemical cleaning. But the carpet in the hallway is so strong you have to hold your breath from the moment the elevator opens and you get to your room, key in hand and ready before even entering the elevator. The smell is so strong that it seeps into your room from under the door. I even wondered if it was in the air duct and air system because we kept getting strong whiffs of the smell so we turned off all air entering our room. The good news is that some rooms have balconies which allows in a lot of fresh air -- except that many smokers also stay here and smoke on their balconies, which means even during the night you have to wake up and close the door for awhile, and open it up after you think the smokers have stopped. Basically, you can't get away from the air problem. I stayed here a week on business and had a headache and was congested every day, and the one night I forgot to take an antihistamine pill I woke up with a puffy face and had difficulty breathing until I took a pill.
I think the closest hotel to the airport. Nice spacefull rooms with coffee i the room. Good bed, wifi works and large number of tv channels. Breakfast large with big variation. Only negative .. checkin takes long time
For our last night after weeks of travelling through Israel, we needed a place to stay, close to the airport, after driving from the Negev and flying home in the morning. The front desk and reservation staff was super polite and accommodating (unusual for Israel). The room was clean and spacious ---although the bathroom was old and outdated, it was clean. For those travelling with families, the amenities would be great: big pool and community center. The building is mixed use of hotel and short term rentals, it seems. Nearby is a lively park where the community bikes, blades and plays. 20 minute ride to the airport and shuttle provided.
Rooms were very average in both decor and cleanliness. Probably because they need to be overhauled and updated.... But everything worked ok to be fair. The lobby and lobby bar area were nice and updated and clean. The local salad I had for lunch in the lobby was fresh and delicious. The breakfast area definitely needs an update. Food was ok. Nothing special but probably let down by the space it was in. If you treat breakfast as just a fuel stop then you will be happy but it’s not up to scratch for a hotel in this price range. This was a business trip. I’m sure we will probably find ourselves back there again. “Better the devil you know”
The Hotel , is Ok, it probably needs updating. The Breakfast room is very dated , however the breakfast choice huge and tasty. The location is a little outside Tel Aviv. The older guy at the Bar, and Restaurant could be a little friendlier, and always appeared grumpy. The Restaurant dining area looks like an after thought at the back of a huge Lobby, next to the Bar. The Hotel lacks a bit of imagination
We reserved three rooms recently for our son's wedding. We are American. We were paying for all three rooms and meals for our guests. A fourth person paid for her own room which was huge with a large balcony. Our room was the broom closet. Room 1613B. It was so small there was literally no room for even a chair! The other two rooms, those occupied by our guests, were double the size of ours. The hotel claimed to be full but in fact was not until Friday night. I will say all rooms were very clean. The service in the two lobby restaurants is extremely slow, I mean a 40 minute wait to order dessert! Now the check. When we stay in Jerusalem he who pays the bill gets the benefit, i.e no tax. Not here! They were prepared to argue night was day about one Israeli sleeping in a room. Each day we ordered a taxi. Note I said taxi. On the final day we ordered a taxi for the airport. A huge shuttle , belonging to this hotel arrived. At the airport the driver demanded, with menaces, three times the taxi fare! So our experience would suggest that this hotel does not really care for tourists. A receptionist told me she had never heard of the world famous Tel Aviv art museum because she is French!
When you stay at the Kfar Maccabia in Ramat Gan, Israel, you are also getting a country club. Three large pools, two huge whirlpools, tennis, squash, basketball...the list goes on. Less than twenty minutes from Ben Gurion Airport, Kfar Maccabia is the rare resort convenient for arrival or departure. The front desk was very helpful, especially Nota.
