Dan Tel Aviv5.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
There's much to like and be satisfied with this hotel, starting with its location overlooking the beach of Tel Aviv and the Mediterranean Sea. The sea-view room we had was large enough for a king size bed AND a three seat sofa, writing desk and ample closet space. When we checked in, there were nice gifts of fruit and munchies and bottles of water. A kurig-type coffee maker was there and a hot water kettle was promptly delivered when requested. In act, service on every level was friendly and efficient. The included breakfast at the dining room was, as many here have noted, impressive and varied. So why only four stars? One word: Internet. More precisely, it's weakness. It is often commented that we do not realize how attached we've become to the web. Nothing like a slow connection to quickly remind you, though. Sadly, this has cost the Dan one star in this review. There is also another, albeit cosmetic problem: The beach-side view of the Dan is an Agam (or Agam-inspired) pastiche of colors that change as you walk north-to-south (or the south-to-north). The Dan is very proud of this facade as it pictures it in promotional postcards and marketing materials. However, the sea, sand and sun has not been kind to the exterior, and through the tiny colorful tiles have deteriorated, in some areas very badly. It gives the hotel a shabby appearance. I'm sure management is aware of this (they were replacing the main entrance lights with LEDs while we were there). Perhaps the very real problem is finding hundreds of tiny tiles of the correct colors, ranging from pastel blues to deep reds. Pity.
The location of the hotel is good, the food is nice and the lounge is wonderful. I have been there many times, and always enjoyed. Unfortunately i stayed there again this summer the night before my wedding and got terrible service (asked the day before for room service breakfast: it was delivered later than requested and did not have enough croissants for all the people in the room), I also had requested a stool for my hairdresser to do my hair (again this was not delivered to the room until after she complained to the front desk) and i found out later my family had asked to send champagne and this never arrived.
Fabulous hotel with great staff. I actually stayed at their apartment building attached to the hotel which meant that I wasn't cooped up in a single room due to work. The breakfast at the Dan Tel Aviv was far more exquisite years ago but now still very good. The pool and Gym are great to have on premises for those who want it. Can't go wrong with this hotel, opposite the beach so close for those morning walks.
Great service, clean, amazing food, wonderfall staff!!! We had a wonderfall time. We recommend for famely, copels. Highly recommended! Its very close to the beach and to the central of tlv. And for the kids their is a fun zone.
Was in a suite in the tower. under the bed was filthy with dust, the bathroom had mold, the lighting dim and poor. Construction on the outside of the building began one morning at 7am....drilling and blasting. Very disturbing. The furniture in the 'suite' was old, torn, and unkept. Not deserving of 'suite' status at all. Disappointed, to say the least. Was also told that to be allowed into the lounge, an additional $60 was required, although already paid for a suite. Besides being in a wonderful location, couldn't find much wonderful in the hotel. Sad.
A beautiful hotel in a great location. Was at the Dan for a business meeting. Elad, Guest Relations and Chief Concierge, was incredibly helpful in coordinating car service to the airport and offering his help during our stay.
Beautiful, modern and spacious. This hotel has it all. From radio in the bathroom to motorized curtains. The breakfast is superb though the food is lacking a certain something to be completely perfect. The staff, Nikol, is exemplary and should be an inspiration to anybody who is learning to work a reception counter in a hotel. What a delight! The price is fair and the service terrific. Definitely a “10”! The location is ideal and the hotel is surrounded by everything you may need. Enjoy Tel Aviv even more when you’re staying here.
My husband and I were on a small tour and we checked into the Dan Tel Aviv. It was an uneventful stay, nice breakfast, beautiful room. However, at the end of the tour we returned to the hotel and it was a completely different story. We were not able to check in until 10pm, so we were comped dinner. We could only eat from the bar menu because it was so late. It took 40 minutes to be served. Everyone was served except my husband who ordered a hamburger. When we asked repeatedly where his dinner was we were told it would be right out. Other burgers were served in the dining room around us. We were visited by the maitre d and the manager. We did not receive the burger until close to 10 pm. We were not listened to. It was like talking to a wall. They did not care one bit. It was awful. Then we finally received our room keys and the room we got was so bad it was insulting. I likened it to slave quarters. Our tour leader was so upset at the reception we received. I will go out of my way NOT to stay at this hotel again.
I stayed two nights in the Dan. My room was perfect, the service in the business lounge as well. A nice place to stay, particularly on Business stay. Breakfast is really great. A little bit tricky to get some coffee, but if you know Israel;-) Thank you and looking forward to my next stay.
My parents gave me money to spend a luxurious weekend in Tel Aviv for my round birthday. Wanting to show my children what a beautiful country this is, I took them alone (one adult, two children) and booked at the Dan Hotel Tel Aviv for 2 nights, including breakfast on booking.com, which cost over $500 per night. We arrived there after a long trip on Friday evening, and the elderly bellboy (with whom I had sympathy) was busy helping others, so I carried the three suitcases into the hotel from the cab myself. That was the beginning of a trend for our stay: kind and attentive staff who have no chance of pleasing the guests because there are too few of them. These are management problems: not personnel problems. The building may have been nice 50 years ago, and its location is good, but the interior is dark and depressing, dilapidated and not nearly worth the price charged to naive tourists. I felt taken advantage of. I have never written a negative review on Trip Advisor before, but I want to prevent other tourists from falling into this trap. The lady at reception promised us a "beautiful room," which brightened our faces temporarily; in fact, the view was of a disgusting swimming pool, which my children and I thought at first was part of our hotel. I will post a photo of it here. Nice view for $500 per night! The room itself was dark, even with the blinds open (in the evening it was hard to read, even with all the lights on). The shower drain was clogged, so the bathroom floor flooded when we showered. The breakfast was inedible, although I had paid $100 extra per night, hoping for an amazing Israeli breakfast. There were piles of mostly cracked "boiled eggs" - all hard-boiled. Would it be too much work to offer soft-boiled eggs as well? Almost no fruit on offer: just vegetables, half stale cakes, fish and humus. My children ate nothing. One night, in the middle of the night, my daughter vomited in bed, and when I called all the numbers on the phone in the room (reception, concierge, "customer service"), no-one answered any of them, so I fixed the bed the best I could without any fresh linen, and she went back to sleep. I will not return, probably to Israel at all, as my children couldn't wait to return to Vienna. Thank you, Dan Hotel Tel Aviv, for nothing!
