Hotel Leonardo Negev: Mixed Feelings

We stayed at the business floor of the Hotel Leonardo Negev. The positive thing was the great lookof onto Be`er Sheva. The room itself was well used and in not the best shape and not too clean either. We wanted to eat at the restaurant, but that was not open for dinner (although I had a reservation that included dinner) and the bar at the groundfloor offered pizza as the only alternative. Some children were serving at the bar as well, what really surprised me. The outdoor pool area at the first floor seemed very popular. Many youngsters had gathered around the pool and had their own party. Breakfast was a buffet type and at 10AM sharp it was closed, regardless of the guests still half way in their meals. In my feeling the one night stay was overprized and there are many points to improve here.

Central location in town; not too far away from the train station.
Great lookoff (upper floors).
Attractive pool area.

A private place,,,,

Since we didn't take hotel cause we stayed at friend's place, then the only fotos I can have are the one from the building.
Next time I'll take fotos of the house itself.
The building , which is close the to University and the Hospital is a beautiful one, in the new neighborhood .
Staying at somebody's place its something I can do only for a very short time, but if its more then this - then its only a hotel that I can stay at.

Every floor has a lounge with seats and armchairs.

BEIT YATZIV: A Cheap Sleep in Beersheva

Rightly or wrongly, Beersheva is not a top-priority for tourists, and overnight options are limited. The city has two hotels – the Desert Inn and the Paradise. Both are quite expensive. We were looking for a cheap sleep before heading on to Ein Gedi. Beit Yatziv fit the bill.

Beit Yatziv, located near Beersheva’s Old City, is a campus for teachers' seminars and the Open University. But it also operates as a youth hostel/guest house. The price is calculated per person: 110 shekels - adults (about $24), 93 - children. You can have up to 6 people in your room, each paying that rate. We used 3 beds, which left 3 empty ones. These are considered "family rooms," which means they don't put strangers in with you, although maybe there is such an option. Each room has a private entrance.

They have rooms in another building which they called a “beit ha’aracha" (guest house) with 2 single beds in a room. We had a look at one such room, which was very tiny, dark and cramped, and actually a bit more expensive (NIS 195 single/280 double), and chose the hostel, which seemed nicer. The bathroom is en suite for both options.

The hostel rooms were equipped with a small refrigerator and a TV on a swivel arm that offered a good view no matter what bed you sat on. Decor was minimal, but the gardens are pretty, and I saw a sign indicating the existence of a swimming pool. We were there in May, just after Independence Day when schools were closed, and basically had the place for ourselves. It might be busier in the summer.

UPDATE: The Desert Inn is being demolished and the Paradise is now called Golden Tulip.

The place was reasonably clean. The pillows were a bit lumpy but the beds were OK, ordinary foam mattresses, cot-size, but comfortable enough (1 bunk bed). The linens and blankets were freshly laundered, though not gorgeous to look at. Forget about a luxurious bubble bath. No tub here - just a shower. There were a couple of maintenance issues - a burnt-out bulb , a toilet that seemed a bit leaky at night, but the airconditioning was good, and all in all, we slept well.

The breakfast, served in the cafeteria/dining room, was your ordinary Israeli breakfast - fresh veggies, cheeses, eggs, yogurt, bread, coffee - not fancy, but adequate. A nice motherly Russian lady set out everything on our table, and made us eggs to order.

Bottom line – not a 5-star establishment, but good value for your money.
