“Beyond expectations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

My husband and I just came back from Israel and stayed at this hotel for the first time. I hope it won't be the last. The hotel itself is stunning, without being ostentatious. Our room was tastefully appointed with a large balcony and a view of the Mediterranean, terry robes and the whole nine yards. The breakfast buffet, for which Israeli hotels are famous, was over-the-top, even Champagne included. The staff was friendly without being intrusive and the beautiful lobby bar was comfortable and obliging.
What made our stay all the more memorable was a special favour we asked of the concierge. My husband knew he had a great-uncle buried in the Tel Aviv area, but didn't remember just where. After considerable research, the concierge could not find the grave, but consulted the hotel "machgiach"(kosher supervisor) who asked enough questions that they narrowed it down to the most likely place, even finding a photo of the cemetery entrance that looked familiar to us. We were very pleased that with the help of these kind people we were able to find the grave and pay our respects to a very dear departed relative. I cannot imagine anyone anywhere going to so much trouble for our sake and we are forever grateful.
It is quite impressive that such a large hotel could feel so much like a home; it's that personal.

Room Tip: Upper floors facing the sea might have a great view, but our lower floor room made up for it with a...

Visited whilst on a business trip. First impressions were good and thought the room was decent for a 5star hotel.

Location is one of its best assets and the view from my room was great.

Breakfast is ok with a good variety but the service wasn't good enough and went two days without anyone asking me if I want coffee etc.
Again regarding service in the room. I had water on arrival which I used and was never replaced. Also the safe didn't work.

Overall it's a good hotel with good facilities and only lacks in service and would probably go back

Had the opportunity to visit this hotel on several occasions over the last year. Its in a great location to walk along the seafront and great food nearby. It's can be pricey but the rooms are a very high standard, comfortable beds, clean and good service at front desk. I have an ICH loyalty card so can be biased but I genuinely find it a comfortable hotel to visit. Highly recommended

My wife and I have now spent time in this hotel over four years many times and always are looked after as if we were royalty.
From the moment we arrive at reception we feel we have returned home.
For such a large hotel the service throughout is very personal.
It is worth joining the AMBASSADOR CARD for the worthwhile extras one receives.
We look forward to returning on our next visit to Israel.

Another great stay at this very nice hotel. Terrific service in every area: food and beverage, guest rooms, front desk, housekeeping, concierge. Couldn't ask for better. Looking forward to the next opportunity.

All three concierges helped us with accurate suggestions to enable us to enjoy positive experiences in Tel Aviv. They listened to what I wanted to do, asked thoughtful questions about my expectations and desires, and then offered suggestions for restaurants and sites that met my needs. We are used to, comfortable with, and expect 5 Star Four Seasons / Ritz Carlton level concierge services. The concierges at this hotel are definitely in that top level category.
Moshe even planned our trip to Petra, Jordan by getting us flights to Eilat, a good tour company, helped us with timing and transportation, and even helped us with a reservation to a lovely hotel in Haifa following our tour in Petra, Jordan.

I recently stayed at the David Intercontinental in tel Aviv for a conference. I did get a chance to tour Tel Aviv while there.
The hotel is first class with regard to amenities. The rooms were up to date and comfortable. The concierge was friendly and helpful. The front desk folks were helpful for practical city issues. The staff stored my luggage when I went out of town for a couple of days. Meeting rooms and AV facilities were first class.
The view of the beach promenade and Tel Aviv was quite nice.
the hotel also has easy access to the beach, the shops and restaurants of Neve Tzedek, and old Jaffa.
I cannot imagine staying anywhere else in Tel Aviv.

Room Tip: All rooms good though higher floors provide better views
