When we arrived at hi Akko Hostel we were not able to find parking on
the street. So we called the reception desk and told them. Ali, the
front desk attendant, was so nice, he let us park in the hotel’s staff
We did not expect such a nice room for the price of $US 80.00 per night but we got one. The management gave us a hotel room on the top floor of the hotel. This is a rarity for us with regards to hotel accommodations. The room was very spacious, clean, and comfortable, too. It was furnished with a king sized firm mattress for us to sleep on and a computer desk to write on. In addition our hotel room had a lot of widows to bring light into it. They all had a panoramic view of the old city of Akko. Included in it was a patio with table and chairs to sit at and enjoy the views. We were additionally entertained with nice cable channels, which had fun family friendly movies to watch on the television.
The breakfast at HI Akko Hostel was fantastic. It was like going to an "all you can eat" smorgasbord free of charge. There were all kinds of fresh foods to eat as well. Cheeses of various sorts, corn, potato salads, coleslaw, eggplant salad, raw vegetables, pickled herring, salmon sushi, tuna, hard boiled eggs, soft egg omelets, brown and white breads, fresh grapefruit, oranges, and pineapple. And there were a lot of comfortable sit down tables to eat at.
This hotel has some Akko history literally in it. There is an old aqueduct going right through the breakfast room. It was built during the 19th century to bring water to Akko. The hotel itself is made out of stone, which gives it a nice ambience in harmony with the rest of the old city of Akko’s historical ruins.
We wanted to stay longer but the hotel was booked.
