George and his lovely wife treated our group of 10 travelers as though we were family. Our rooms were immaculate. In the evening we used the kitchen (that was in each room) to cook dinner and in the morning, George treated us to more breakfast than we could eat.

I discovered this gem the previous year, when searching for Elijah's cave. At that time, George was very helpful, spending a lot of time chatting with me about the local history and how to get to several sites. I wasn't a guest of his establishment, but he treated me as though I were. I was thrilled to find availability when I returned with my group.

Tamer Guest House sits on Mount Carmel, and you could walk up the hill to Elijah's cave, then onto Mt Carmel via the old Monk's steps. Just need to be in good shape and not too frightened on heights!

If you are ever in the Haifa area and want a reasonable place to stay, one that makes you feel as though you are family, then George's Tamer Guest House is THE place to stay!

We were kindly received by the family/owners when we arrived. The rooms are clean but a bit outdated same is the bed. This hotel works for the average traveller but is not very luxorieus. The view is nice, over the highway into the sea so also quite noisy sitting on the terras. Breakfast was good and more then enough. The driveway is tricky to access for the first time, you pass it before you know and with beeping drivers behind you not a pleasure. The terras is nice to sit on in the evenings

Stayed: May 2017, travelled with family

We stayed with our 2 kids at Tamer Guesthouse and enjoyed the hospitality and warm welcome of George and his staff. George showed us arround in his own car and also made sure we new how to get around with our kids and public transport. Great location for exploring Haifa and Akko (Acre). There's a busy road downstairs, one might not like it, but it was actually entertainment for our 2 year old... Views are terrific.
Nice sizeable rooms, clean and well ecquiped. Breakfast plentyful and variable every day. We can very well recommend this place to other families!

Not many hosts can be as good as George and his family to make you feel at home.
The guest house is in a privileged location in front of the Mediterranean sea, close to the beach, to the train and bus stations, and public transportation.
On arrival, George and his son Rany took me to a city tour, to show me the main sights. Next day, they dropped me in the Bahai gardens to begin my day.
The room is very complete and spacious, with a small terrace, kettle, refrigerator, tea, coffee, everything you need. Hot water and wifi working perfect.
Before arriving to Haifa I tried to arrange a tour to the Golan Heights and was no possible, but George made the tour for me.
Everyday I received a huge and delicious breakfast, and different every time.
Great great experience, I will recommend to all my friends traveling to Haifa
