2 nights at Ein Gedi

Posted by Teresa

My husband and I have been to Ein Gedi 8 years ago, and we preferred it then. It was smaller and had more the feel of a kibbutz guest house than of a lower middle category hotel. We took our friends to show them a place we had liked- and it was a big disappointment. We had the 'renovated rooms' which basically consisted in mural paintings of Ibex. The bathroom was old and smelled old, which is a pity. The location is wonderful, as always. It's a pity that the Dead Sea is receding, but this is not Ein Gedi's fault. The 2 breakfasts and 1 dinner we ate, were abundant and excellent. The breakfasts being by far the best of all the hotels ( of higher category) we stayed in, across Israel. So.. all in all, I would come back for the location and because I hate the big hotels further south, but Ein Gedi has lost the atmosphere that had made it unique and charming during our previous stay. A pity. Bigger is not always better. ( Our friends with whom we travelled, would probably not return, as she refused to even take shower during our stay, not wanting to spend that much time in a bathroom she found revolting.) As to service: On Shabat, our room was only made up after we complained a few times- and only just before we went to sleep at night!!!.. and if it were not done for reasons of Shabat, OK.. but we saw the cleaning personnel going from room to room and working THERE the entire day.. so the arguments of the reception personnel were not really convincing. After telling them not to explain Judaism to Jews, we were presented with another version: the cleaning is allowed for vacated rooms to be prepared for new guests.. but NOT for staying and paying guests. We left on Sunday morning, so I cannot judge if and how the rooms were cleaned on a 'working day'. The personnel in the dining room was extremely friendly, welcoming and efficient. Shalom and kind regards Teresa Erlich, Paris

Hi Teresa Thank you for choosing to stay with us. We do only have a skeleton cleaning staff working On Saturdays.Providing clean towels, sheets etc. The rest of the week our cleaning team provides full cleaning services for all our guests.I am surprised to read about the washroom/shower situation,unfortunatelly sometimes there are technical issues but with a simple request we can send a maintenance rep. to the room and quickly resolve any problem. We are in the midst of renovations to many of our rooms and facilities.We hope you will visit us again Ilan Sonderling-Guest Relations Manager
