“A wonderful time was had by all”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2011

I would just like to say that all the staff were extremly helpful which made for a wonderful stay at such a busy time of year. Nothing was to big or to little to get sorted at once. The pool staff would jump at every request something you don't always get in such a large hotel.
Off course the food was excellent you couldn't want for anything and being a vegetarian the chef went out of his way to make us something special.

Would I go back? Well I and the family can't wait,

Room Tip: Go for the executive rooms a bit extra but well w!

The hotel has had its best days in the past but the location is unbeatable. You can go for a run along the shoreline, go to the well equipped gym afterwards and then dive into the pool. Good hotel altogether, but price was a bit steep.

On a recent family holiday, whilst in Tel Aviv, we stayed at the David Intercontinental. Having stayed at other Intercontinental hotels in the past, this one is definitely one of the best. Starting with the location, it is really well positioned and a stone's throw from the beach. The service was excellent, with all staff aiming to please. The room was spacious, clean and modern. My only criticism was that the room we stayed in (and I think all rooms on or below level 8), overlooked the dining area and pub and late at night the noise from this area rises and could be heard in our bedroom. However, besides this minor irritation, our stay at this hotel was excellent

Room Tip: Stay on a higher floor

Thank you for your recent stay with us at the David InterContinental Tel Aviv and for taking the time to place your feedback. I am pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and that our facilities and services meet your expectations. With regards to your comments on the view from the rooms, please note that our hotel is build in a way that rooms on our lower flows lead out to our beautiful and recently renovated Atrium lobby, whilst most of them have balconies on the other side. We have had many comments from our guests who especially liked this kind of design feature. Should you however not wish to stay in one of these rooms, and wish to book a higher room category, please make the necessary adjustment when making your reservation. Once again, thank you for your comments and we look forward to welcoming you again soon. Kind regards, Thomas Fehlbier (Resident Manager)

We have just returned home this week from a wonderful 11 night stay at the David IC. This was our 3rd visit to the hotel and I can only say good things about it.
The hotel has just finished refurbishing the lobby area and they have made a lovely family lounge for people with club rooms and children.
As usual the food was amazing and always too much! The staff were fantastic and always very friendly and helpful.
My son loved the kids club, he made wonderful things and loved the animal visit from local kibbutz. The kids club is only open during passover and summer holidays.
Swimming pool area quite spacious and the sunbeds are now more comfortable.

We can't wait to return next year!!

Thank you for staying with us and thank you even more for such wonderful feedback. You can imagine that after all the time and efforts we put into updating our lobby and food outlets, it is simply wonderful to find out it was all worthwhile. We are also pleased that you noted our upgraded sunbeds and are pleased your stay with us was a success.

Our party had eleven rooms for a week in April 2011. The service from all staff was superb, despite the hotel being full. Hotel facilities are good and there is a lot to do in the immediate vicinity. Highly recommended.

I travelled to Tel Aviv with my sister and her daughter. We loved staying at the Intercontinental. Every Israeli that heard we were staying at this hotel said it was the best in Tel Aviv. We paid a little more to have access to the lounge but it was well worth it. The lounge was comfortable and included internet access, delicious food and drinks all day long from 730 am until 1030 pm. Alcohol in the evening. We barely spent any money on food during our stay in Israel because we would just go to the lounge anytime we were hungry. The hotel is not cheap but if you can afford it, it is well worth the money. Staff is great too.

Room Tip: ask for renovated floor.

I stayed in Tel Aviv for 3 nights in March on business. We were able to acquire a Club Room level with access to the lounge. The check-in at the lobby was very busy, so we just went up to the club level and checked out without much of a wait at all. The room was very nice with a couch/sitting area in addition to a comfortable bed. The rooms were slightly out-dated, but still nice and comfortable.

The accomodations in the Club Lounge were also very nice with drinks always available, coffee machine, pastries. During meal times, the staff brought out food with a little more substance, but it never quite made up a meal. The staff was attentive in the club area and after a couple times of showing our room cards, they knew us by face and let us walk right through. There are several computers available, one with a printer, but WIFI is not available for free in the lounge. The lounge was included in our room, but we heard the front staff tell somebody that it would cost $100USD per day if they wanted to pay. In my opinion, this would not have been worth it.

The location of the hotel was good - only about a 20 minute walk to Jaffa in the Old Town of Tel Aviv. The promenade along the sea is beautiful and well kept. I was very excited to go to Tel Aviv, but the city itself was slightly underwhelming. All in all, a great business trip and an enjoyable stay at the IC David.
