“My favorite hotel in the world!”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

Stayed for the sixteenth and seventeenth times at this magnificent seaside hotel in late October and early November, 2013. Whenever I visit Israel, which I do at least once yearly, I stay at the wonderful David Intercontinental Hotel at the beginning and again at the end of my trip so I can both start and end the trip on a high note --by staying at my favorite hotel in the entire world. First a tip for the first time traveler to this hotel. Splurge the extra amount in order to have access to the club lounge where you can enjoy leisurely and sumptuous food for breakfast, lunch, and dinner as well as delicious snacks throughout the day. Having lounge privileges provides you with expedited check-in as you bypass the lobby reception and go directly to the lounge on the 24th floor where there are no crowds to compete with while checking into the hotel. This lounge has Israeli (in English and Hebrew) and international newspapers for you to read and provides free access to computers. Everyone in the lounge is extremely helpful but Martina, Robbie, Hadil, Karni, and Ilan go far beyond the call of duty in being extremely kind, friendly, and helpful in every way they can. I have known Martina over many of the nine years of my staying at this hotel and she is a shining example of the excellent staff at this hotel. All the staff of this great lounge are to be heartily commended. I wish I could remember all their names. Every room in this hotel has a view of the Mediterranean Sea but the suites are particularly luxurious. If you have an Intercontinental Ambassador Gold Card which has a one hundred and fifty dollars per year membership fee then you will get an automatic upgrade to a suite if one is available which makes this card a very important one to have. The beds are extremely comfortable, the bathroom very spacious and chock full of lovely amenities, and the maid service extremely good. The food at the Aubergine Restaurant in the hotel is superb and the daily breakfast in the Jaffa Court restaurant in the hotel is the best in all of Israel by far. The hotel is located within a short and very easy walking distance of the Tayelet (the seaside promenade), the Carmel Market with its Middle Eastern ambience and a wonderful selection of foods, clothes, and souvenirs, the beautiful sandy beach for which Tel Aviv is rightly famous, and the port and artist galleries of Jaffa. Best of all when you are at the hotel the staff makes you manifestly feel that you are part of a family. Don't be surprised if you are approached by staff personally or on your room phone more than once during your stay in order for them to learn if you are satisfied with your hotel experience and whether there is anything they can do to make your stay better. Don't miss visiting the Art Tribes gallery (sculpture, oil paintings, and photographs of the highest quality) and the H. Stern jewelry store, both in the lobby, as both stores have excellent items on display.

Room Tip: pay a little extra to have access to the magnificent 24th floor club lounge with tremendous amenitie...

We stayed in the hotel on our wedding night. The front desk gave us great service: welcomed us with a big smile, quickly moved our belongings to the room, and the check in was very fast. When we got to the room we were amazed to see that there was a bottle of wine waiting for us. The room was perfectly clean and the veiw was breathtaking. The pool was enormous!! and also very clean. The breakfast was very rich and there was a great variety. Everytime we called the front desk during our stay we were answered very kindly and got all the information needed.
It was a wonderfull honeymoon. Hope to come back soon :)
Thank you for your lovely entertainment!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a veiw to the pool and the sea

We had a great time, at the inter contentianl we arrived at noon and get got the room a few minutes after we arrived. We had a great view of old jaffa. In the morning we missed breakfast so we called the reception and ask them what can be done, the reception help us and we got breakfast to the room even though we were sure we missed it.

We had in the room when we arrived wine and fruits and it was very pleasant that we asked and received late checkout.

The mattress was excellent and I had a very good night sleep.

The only remark is that I feel that room is not big enough.

The staff was very polite, resourceful and punctual

This was my second visit and I am happy to say that the quality of the facilities and staff is getting better with each visit.
I will definitely return.

Want to share with you the unique and pleasant experience, staying at the InterContinental Hotel .
Enjoying every minute.
Starting from the front desk, the clerk receives you with a smile, desire to help, the rooms are beautiful and very clean with sea view.
The food in the dining room, an excellent selection very tasty.
Even the swimming pool is large, clean, and spacious.
In short, definitely a unique experience.

we arrived the David Intercontinental for the whole family weekend.
firstly, the hotel location is great - right on the beach, best view, awsome long walkway along the beach, easy reach close sites for the whole family.
the hotel itself if very nice luxurious and clean, the pool is great, kids and adults as one can enjoy it - big one with nice sea view with nice pool food range.
breakfast we had was one of the best we had on any hotel - quite good selection, fresh and tasty.
recommend!!!

I stayed here for over a year on business and thoroughly enjoyed the hotel,the staff,the amenities and food ,everything was perfect.It was like a home from home and would definitely stay there again,great location and only a short walk to the beach and beautiful town of Jaffa.
I cannot speak highly enough of the staff in the executive lounge who are extremely friendly and welcoming and nothing is too much trouble for them especially Hadeel and Idan.
