“Great location, quality of room varies”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

I have stayed at this seafront hotel few times. While I like this location, I find room quality varies significantly. During my recent trip, bathroom for my first assigned room was far too small and room was not ready when I checked in at 3:30 pm; it took a while to finally get the right room after wasting hour and half following a long trip from the US. Rest of my four day stay was generally pleasant although I was surprised that the hotel has outsourced gym and you have to pay to workout - this is my first time at a five star hotel where you have to pay for gym.

Room Tip: Rooms on the south side has better sea view. You might also want to ask for room with larger bathroo...

Dear guest,

Thank you for your review during your last stay at the Hilton Tel Aviv. Indeed “room quality varies significantly” Major refurbishments recently took place at the Hilton Tel Aviv. We have completed the renovations of the top nine floors. We have increased the living space of the new rooms and expanded the bathroom to include modern features and a separate shower. The spa is also totally renewed. Two more floors will be renovated this winter for your enjoyment. More floors will be completely in the years to come.

Thank you for taking the time and write your review. We do hope to have another opportunity to prove our service whenever you will return to the Hilton Tel Aviv.

During a business trip through Israel I stayed twice in this Hilton and was unfortunate to have an old room the first time although the plastic smiling receptionist called it an 'upgrade'....... The room is old, hard to keep clean and the bathroom tiny and far below the standard of What one is used to at these prices and at Hilton.

The second stay within that week I didn't get the 'upgrade', luckily one might say. To my amazement it was a fully renovated executive suite with more space, clean and up to standard. From collegues one should make a reservation from the 10th floor up, at lleast when you don't wanna get stuck in an old shithole room that should cost half from what they charge you.

For dinner: eat outside. The restaurant is without atmosphere and two streets down and a 10 minutes walk you find better and more affordable food. Breakfast is expensive but worthwhile. However on Sjabbat morning try to be early, because once the synagoge is ending groups flok in and they tend to fall over the buffet as if they just came from the dessert and have fulture behaviour: everything is gone in minutes!

For sushi your in the right place, although only kosher fish is served and the cooks are from Korea. The bar is small but caters for all drinkscand the lobby is spacious.
Talking of the lobby: great fun to sit there at sjabbat and enjoy the parade of orthodoxe families trying to get rid of the daughters to the single men from other families.

Don't buy at the Stern juwelers outlet: the ladies look as good as all the gold there, but they are always in a bad arrogant mood and the stuff is overpriced.

The salt water pool is the best and the lunch food is great. Try the kosher burgers!

Finally: with good weather; sit on the outside tarrace for a sundowner. Just great!

We really appreciate your comments and we are happy to see that you enjoyed the Executive Suite you were upgraded to.

I am not so sure about you remarks about the expensive breakfast, as our breakfast is included in the accommodation and there is no need to pay for it. The same goes for the restaurant - We have 5 restaurants, so it’s hard to reply accordingly.

As it is your second stay with us, we hope you will return to the Hilton Tel Aviv where we will be delighted to welcoming you back.

The Hilton isn't the newest along the seafront but it was the most fully booked in the city when we were there - for a reason. It is well located, efficiently and graciously serviced, friendly and immaculate. It is a short walk to the beach and slightly longer walk to the busy, trendy Port. Breakfast is simply amazing - staggering choices. But pricey if not included in your rate arrangement. We stayed 10 days and would have appreciated one of the hotel's renovated rooms - ours was getting shabby. However, we had a more than comfortable stay. Bedding was excellent. Turn down service included chocolates nightly with a box of chocolates at welcome and on Shabbat. We were swimming in chocolate!! Our only disappointment was that we discovered that we were not eligible for Hilton points for our 10 day stay since we had booked through a second party: Booking.com. Be warned if you are a collector.

Room Tip: Ask for a renovated room.

As a frequent Hilton traveler, I was quite impressed at their hotel:
- renovated rooms were top notch - very comfortable, tray ceiling in the bathroom, high quality fixtures, very ergnomic)
- right on the Mediterranean Sea (ask for towels at the salt water pool before you go to the beach)
- a bit far to walk to the center of Tel-Aviv, but an easy #4 bus ride from Ben Yehuda Street (down Arlozorov St.) or a short cab ride
- fruit in your room upon arrival along with water and chocolates (nice touch!)
- H. Stern jewelers in the lobby along with some other very nice, yet pricey, stores
- The Ahava lotions and soap are top notch
- Very high quality linens (yes, this makes a big difference in terms of comfort)
- Staff was very friendly

I look forward to coming back here soon!

Room Tip: Ask for the more recently renovated rooms. (but either way you can't go wrong)

Beautiful hotel, very helpful concierge, clean rooms (though the renovated rooms are MUCH nicer). Fruit and wine was waiting in the room, and the maid service was fantastic. The hotel has a great beach and pool, but it is also an easy walk to the larger beach strip. The internal restaurants are a bit pricey, but the shabbat dinner was good.

Room Tip: Request a renovated room, they are MUCH nicer and cleaner.

We stayed for 6 days in this hotel in early October. As a family of 3 were in an executive twin room on the 15th floor, facing Jaffa . It was a pleasant ( fairly small) room, with a nice view of the sea. With the window open, the traffic was quite noisy. However, once it was closed, you heard very little of the noise outside.

We had access to the business lounge on the 12th floor and we all thoroughly enjoyed the tasty snacks and also the array of deserts that were served there.

The beach area, straight in front of the hotel was very pleasant and we loved strolling along the promenade, which stretches for miles, all the way to Jaffa!

Breakfasts in the hotel were excellent!

Room Tip: Executive room facing Jaffa and preferably with a low number, which would mean you were further away...

Just returned from 3 nights at the Hilton. Spacious room overlooking beach, executive lounge serves breakfast and light dinner, both front desk staff and concierge most helpful. My husband and I arrived with severe respiratory infections-the hotel staff provided us with immediate medical attention and showed genuine concern. As a Diamond member, they provided many extras. We only wish we had felt better and could take full advantage of the facility!
