Herods Tel Aviv
Ranked #56 of 103 Hotels in Tel Aviv
Reviewed September 28, 2013

We have been to Herods from the 26-28.9.
The first thing we saw was the Tiny, Ice cold and very dirty pool and pool area.
the area only gets sunlight when its sundown and we had to pay to go to the pool located outside the Hotel (Gordon Pool)
Also the staff was not so friendly, no greetings when we came and none when we left (not even a "Thanks you for staying with us" greeting).
The hotel looks and feels very old and not in a good way, and our room smelled.
To conclude, i wouldn't recommend this hotel, considering how much it cost us to stay there.
Herods definitely doesn't qualify as a 5 starts hotel and should not charge as one.

Room Tip: Choose a high floor room to get a good view of the city and sea

We recently planned a 3 week trip to Tel Aviv, this was our first trip back to Israel in 3 years, as such I wanted everything to be perfect including the hotel. After much deliberation, research and review we settled on Herods Hotel Tel Aviv. My criteria for a hotel being: location (direct beachfront access with NO roads to cross), spacious rooms as well as delectable and plentiful cuisine.

I am very pleased to say that Herods not only met our expectations but exceeded them to boot! Our room on the executive floor was lovely and spacious; the executive lounge offered an excellent and exclusive buffet from 06:30 to 22:00. The position of the hotel was superb, ideally located directly on Gordon beach and within walking distance of 3 of Tel Aviv’s other well renowned beaches. The hotel being on the beach gave us direct access to Tel Aviv’s beautiful promenade as well as many enjoyable restaurants and pubs.

Herod’s breakfasts and Friday night dinners are “a must” featuring loads of local dishes and delicatessen. The food is fresh, plentiful and delicious. I can truly say that Herod’s doesn’t spare any cost in insuring its guest’s delight.

While every aspect of my check list was met and successfully ticked there is one aspect I need to point out that clearly differentiates Herods from all of its competitors and that being their staff. If nothing else the outstanding reception, kindness, courtesy and experience I enjoyed thanks to their elite team would be a reason for me to choose this hotel above all others. Nothing was too big or too small. Their moto was “challenge us” and they really do welcome a challenge. On arrival we were welcomed with open arms not to mention a bottle of fantastic local wine and a fruit and chocolate platter. This was not limited to the welcome reception only but set the tone for the entire three weeks. A special, warm and exceptional mention must go to: Meirav, Shay, Dallit and Avi – what a team!!! You were an integral part in making our holiday an outstanding one.

In an area known for its five star hotels, I can truly say that Herods stands out as one of the very best. If you’re after a 5 star hotel with a warm and intimate feel where you’re treated as a guest and not a number, this is the place for you.

Thank you all for an exceptional family holiday. S&R SA

Herods Tel Aviv hotel is one of the best hotels in Tel Aviv, the rooms are comfortable and as great amenities, the location is the best in Tel Aviv -on the beach, the hotel décor, the Lobby and public areas are beautiful and welcoming, the service was second to none and the lounge on the 17th floor is blessing in the sky- everybody at the lounge was gracious and courteous from Meirav the lounge manager and guests relations to all other employees at the hotel and particularly at the lounge- great hotel to stay...

We Arrived here after staying at 5star deluxe hotel in Jerusalem! We were very disappointed as we thought this hotel had been done up. It's more like a 3 star than 4star. We had an executive room which was super. Breakfast was more like. Bun fight. The pool area needs total refurbishment. Very 1950's. Strange smell outside pool area. Won't be recommending it. Good position

Room Tip: Insist on executive room

just perfect. from the very first step in the hotel. i am from italy (and i'm sorry for my tremblling english) and it was my first time in tel aviv ( and now i love it!). we are so happy because we booked in few minutes, we were hurried and we didn't know much about the city, we just booked the first hotel we liked on booking.com and who could know we were doing the best choice! first, great position in the city and so close to the beach, just ten meters from the sand! and just in front of the best beach in tel aviv. close to the main streets too. The structure is very elegant and full of everything you need. the rooms are very confortable, big, clean perfectly, quiet, relaxing and with great view. we cant' forget all the people that work in Herods. Always similing and ready to make everything go how you want to. First, Shay. I am so thankful to him beacuse he treated us really as relatives! we did not need to ask nothing to him. he knew how to give us what was good for us before we asked, maybe even before we thought! we cant't forget how much he did for us! And then the beautiful Rachel, we have loved her since we met her. So helpful and open to all our question and needs with her charming smile. Can't forget her tireless happyness! we love her so much! And then the perfect Gil, a very good friend and his pretty dog! And all the others men and women of the staff! we cant write about everyone but we love them all. It's strange but in less then ten days we found there something more than a hotel staff. A really family. I hope to go back there one day to see them all and live this unforgettable experience one more time. simone and ivano.

Room Tip: All the room are good, but maybe the very best choice is to prefer the ones on the left side watchin...

we stayed 4 nights in Herods Tel Aviv.
The good sides of it is the location - just above the beautiful marina that you can see in the photos, nice beach and restaurants, just 10 minutes walk north to reach the harbour with shopping area and restaurants - perfect location for vacation.
The rooms are nice. Not in a standart of an exclusive hotel - some of the equipments in the room must be replace or renovate.
Most of the staff are welcoming and helpfull. We found the front desk staff arrogant and not profesional.
We realy were surprise for the internet cost. Especialy when we bought 1 day internet and found it works only for one device - unbelievable!
The food, like most of Israeli hotels is very good and diversity. No parking at all.
Overall 8 out of 10 but nice stay in Tel Aviv.
