I wasn't overly impressed with the staff in 2015, but it's worse now.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

They just fired the manager (imad)
He basicly did anything and everything for money in his pocket
He wasn't a manager he was a front desk supervisor if anything he was an assistant manager Ameer is the manager

Lots of small things, it's just not 5 star service, though there probably never will be 5 star service in Israel.

If it's official there's no need for "anonymity"...

Is there a reason why I see exactly 0 standard award rooms through July? Last year I booked in June for June a week ahead of time with no issues...
Also very frustrating the rep on the phone tells me he had one shabbos (shiva asar betamuz) so I checked with my wife and by then he said it was taken.
What are the chances of something opening up?

I'm seeing
July 8 77k
July 11-13 77k a night
July 14-19 77k also can book 5 nights for 308k (61.6 a night)
July 22-27 available for 69k a night and get one night free bc it's 5 day booking. So only 276k for that week. 55200 a night
 All rooms are superior accessible need to unlock it on menu so when searching for rooms it'll show up.
I just booked 5 days Aug 2-7  today on superior and that was last one .
As for rooms opening
 usually people cancel 2 days before as that's when have to cancel or that day things open if people get upgraded off the basic room whenever they do the rooms
