Best Hotels in Eilat (including category, rating, and price)

Note: I photographed the featured photo during an evening walk in Eilat. And it is a photo of the Queen of Sheba Eilat hotel.

Before going over the best hotels, let’s answer several common questions.

What is the best time to visit Eilat?

You can visit Eilat all year round, but it gets boiling in the summer and is expensive during the Jewish holidays. Hence, I usually prefer visiting from October to April, not during Hanukkah or Passover.

Note: you can find additional information about the weather in Eilat below.

What is the best area to stay in Eilat?

Eilat is not a big city, and it does not matter where to stay if you have a car. If you are traveling without a car, I suggest staying in one of the neighborhoods near the city center and the north beach. Examples: Hotels Zone, Merkaz, Tsofit, and Amdar.

There are also hotels near the west shore, but they are located outside the city. You can stay there if the main goal of your trip is snorkeling or scuba diving. But remember, you will have limited options (very few stores and restaurants) near the hotel.

Note: the tables below list neighborhood names or West Shore.

In the following three sections, we will go over the best luxury, regular and cheap hotels.

If you are looking for the cheapest solution, I suggest including apartments, guesthouses, and hostels in the search. Here are the best ten cheap hotels and flats in Eilat. The first six are hostels, guesthouses, and apartments. And the last four are hotels.
