Thank you for making our family trip AMAZING! We couldn’t have asked for better food or better service. I highly recommend the Ararat Hotel for everything you want to see in the holy land. Close to everything!
Loved this place. Perfect for what we were looking for as a family and they arranged for our round trip shuttles from TLV. Very convenient and safe. I would highly recommend staying at this hotel if you’re a tourist wanting to be near the holy sites with easy access
We had such an amazing stay at the Ararat Hotel. We knew we wanted to stay in Bethlehem (birthplace of Jesus) but worried about transportation. The hotel arranged for a private shuttle straight from the Tel-Aviv airport directly to the hotel. What service!!! Amazing breakfast buffet and comfortable rooms. Great location as well for walking, dining, entertainment and steps away from a famous Banksy street mural. Highly recommended!
We stayed at the hotel from 24-26.12.2021, as a chrismas vacation for a big family. Pros: 1. The lobby was stylish, and the reception personnel polite and welcoming. 2. Location close to the tourist sites. 3. Staff are ok, trying their best considering the circumstances. Cons: 1.Problems with the electoronic door locks. 2. In the restaurant, plates are not clean. unsufficient quantities of paper cups, forks, plates, hot drink like milk and tae. so you have to take breakfast early or you will miss most of the basic food and tools! the food was cold. 3. Bathroom: hair drier didn't work in my room (7th floor), the shower was terrible and risky, it flows from few holes with high pressure (cuz most the holes was closed). A sink clogs quickly after every hand wash. 4. The safe box’s batteries were dead so the box didn’t work. 5. There are only 2 elevators and you have to wait not neglected time till it available. * No need to add more cons. Bottom line: despite the hotel almost new but more or less all the standard equipment was broken and the maintenance neglected.not recomended to have breakfast!…
Beautiful hotel with tons of amenities. Amazing food and service. Staff was so friendly and accommodating to all of our requests. I highly recommend this hotel when visiting the holy land. Lobby was gorgeous, rooms were comfortable. Love the local accents.
Best hotel and clean Delicious food and good service and good location I recommended this hotel The reception design is perfect and has a small gift shop Also has and many facilities and gym and restaurants
We just returned from a pilgrimage to the Holy Land where our tour group was booked at the Ararat Bethlehem for 6 nights. We stayed at the hotel from 14.01.2020 – 21.01.2020. Reception area is nice and the reception personnel polite and welcoming. The bad points were: In the restaurant, plates and glasses dirties.In the first day, the food was cold.We had not every day fruits (oranges) like dessert and lemon for tee. The quantity of the sweet food was not sufficient, their answer was: “ it’s finish!” In some evening we have eat at the swimming pool , because in the restaurant it was a wedding party. The restaurant was used for weddings party. The hotel had problems with the electoronic door locks, so, every day, our whole group was unable to lock the doors to their rooms. Only the cheapest food is used, orange juice and jam are chemical.Semolina with water, without sugar. Serving bread in plastic bag seems like poor choice. In the restaurant, each table has 20 places/20 chairs (like in a canteen) and between the tables it is not enough room there to can pass. Many rooms were dirty. In some rooms, the floor and the bathroom never, they had not been cleaned . The soap liquid and toilet paper were missing in many rooms. The shower was not good working. In all the room, the hair dryer were not working. Also, the mini refrigerator not good run in all the rooms. In the room it was an water cooker but no coffee or tea and no cup! The walls are very thin and we hear all the noises from the corridor every time when the people walk outside. The lifts are not enough. The hotel is a 1 star hotel max! We will not recommend this hotel to anyone. Very bad experience. I will not come more to this hotel .…
I booked the Hotel with a well known webpage and received a confirmation.on check in I was told the Hotel is overbooked. I persisted on the confirmation and after 1 hour of work, the reception could manage to get me my room. The room itself has a standard size but was far not standard to a 4 star Hotel. The shower was broken, water pressure is set to minimum and it takes a while until you cleaned your head from the shampoo. Shampoo and shower gel (lady smell like) is supaplied from a dispenser on the wall. The towels are cheapest quality and there are no hangers for them in the bathroom. The bed and Mattress is ok. The room has a fridge,but it is empty. A water cooker is there but no coffee or tea and no cup! Two bottle of water are supplied, but only on the first day. The walls are very thin and shaking when the door in other rooms are closing. A lot of noise from the corridor every time people walk outside. Windows also very thinn and you can hear also the noise from the street and the dogs around. I personally, if I must stay again in this hotel (not if I have any other possibility) would never book the room including breakfast. Only the cheapest food is used, orange juice and jam are chemical. Cold milk is stretched with water and any kind of better coffee as well as prepared eggs cost extra and at very high price. The breakfast room is prepared for big tourist groups and is also used for weddings and dinner at evening. The advertised Gym is ok but not very big any on peak times crowded. The swimmimgpool is ok but even as hotel guest u$ 10.-- extra Charge. All in all to expensive for what you get. During my weekend tourist groups fron Nigeria, Poland and Romania been booked in there. If you ask me and my experience - 2 Stars European level maximal.…
I have very mixed feelings. The staff is very friendly, the location is very convenient for walks and the rooms are fairly clean. The photos here, however, must have been taken in a different hotel. The food is terrible and the cleanliness in the restaurant is questionnable. The lifts are not enough and it is much faster to walk the stairs even if you stay on the 6th floor. All in all, there's not much to expect for this price and it's a good base for sightseeing.
Reception area is nice ,but everything else is not Very loud refrigeration or air conditioning unit next to our room ,good thing it was turned off from 10pm to 6 am Very busy and dangerous to cross street in front of the hotel Very confusing layout , My biggest complaint was quality of food Very bland in appearance and taste The way it was served leaves lot to be desired Leftover bread,salads,pastry were served on next meal Serving bread in black plastic bag seems like poor choice to me Health department in any decent country will close pool immediately
