The Prima Music Hotel, Eilat, Israel
Where Is Prima Music Hotel?
Located in Eilat, Israel, the Prima Music Hotel sits hidden between the mountains that borders Egypt, Israel, and Jordan. It's in close proximity to the popular Underwater Observatory, and has a spectacular view of the Red Sea and surrounding beaches. The surroundings mountains around the Prima Music Hotel sets the stage for very cool temperature in an otherwise warm desert climate.
Prima Music Hotel stays true to its name. As one approaches the main entrance of the hotel, you are greeted with the sounds of music. The music continues in the hotel lobby and hallways with continuous rendition of classic hits from the 60's, 70's, and 80's. The selection of music played ranges from the music of great artists and legends like Bob Marley, Mile Davis, Tom Jones, Louis Armstrong, Phil Collins, Sting, Cat Stephens, Santana, Cyndi Lauper and Eric Claiton to name a few.
The halls of the Prima Music Hotel are decorated in colorful hues and wall frames with pictures of many music artists and album covers. The combination of the music and the colors in the hotel surroundings invites you to a place where music and color brings a soothing feeling, giving hotel guests a very memorable musical vacation.
Room Quality At The Prima Music Hotel
Same as most standard hotels. The look and feel of the room will rank the same as any Comfort Suites or Holiday Inn Hotels. The rooms have all of the main amenities, such as,
- Flat Screen Television
- Double Full/Queen Size Beds
- Safe with lock to secure important documents and jewelries
- Extra sheets, pillows and blankets are tucked away in each closet
Each room has its own coffee bar for those who are coffee lovers. There's also a variety of herb tea, regular Lipton tea, and green tea for those tea lovers. So you don't have to order room service, just run some water into the electric kettle for tea time, or use the coffee brewer, and you're ready to have a great cup of tea, or coffee, your way.
As with most hotels, laundry and dry-cleaning are done at a price separate from room package. There are no pressing-irons in the rooms, something that I noticed with a lot of the hotels in Israel. So, if you plan to iron, bring a mini pressing iron along, with a voltage converter, or be prepared to pay close to $10 or more for each outfit that's ironed or dry-cleaned through the hotel's service.
And, by the way, there is free Wi-Fi for easy Internet access both in the rooms and also at the hotel lobby.

For those who would like to have fresh squeezed juice with their breakfast, there is a juice extractor machine that sits next to the coffee and tea machine. All you need is a couple of citrus fruit, and an empty cup. Push the fruits through, and you'll be sipping freshly squeezed juice in no time.
