Dan Tel Aviv5.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We are here for two weeks with two rooms. I've stayed here 5 years ago and have always liked the location but frankly the upkeep is really not up to snuff. The service is mediocre with often staff forgetting to follow up. How can they clean a room without leaving any towels? I saw the cleaning Staff in the hallway and asked for towels, she shrugged and wasn't any help. The room and hallways are...well... old, and not aging gracefully because of the lack of upkeep. Hallways have some dirt that is simply overlooked. Rooms have stains or scratches and are showing poorly. It's not bad, but enough to ask if this hotel management is just waiting for a renovation, or the General Manager doesn't care. Which is it? The pool? Goodness don't event try to lie down on their loungers, the slings are so worn, that your back hits the plastic support from under. Throw them away! The wifi internet? Forget about it. Speeds were less than 1 Mbps and had to speak to support which didn't help. Also no wifi in Gym and pool area. Is this the best Tel Aviv has to offer? This hotel is begging to be brought back to its former glory. Parking in Tel-Aviv is hard enough when you pay $20/day at the hotel parking you expect some service. The staff at the hotel parking are less than you would expect at a hotel that is supposed to be a 5 stars. The staff is outright rude, don't have a uniform so you may think it's a bum on the street. There is some good news. The breakfast is amazing and you can't beat the location. With some minor attention to detail and new chairs for the pool and some polish of the staff, this place can make up for its age. Shame This is part of the King David so I would probably not stay here again and why I didn't choose the King David in Jerusalem. Stayed at the David Citadel in Jerusalem and that was heaven.
We spent 1 night at the hotel at the end of our Israeli holiday (2 adults & 1 toddler (<2yrs)). Check in was done by Ezra who was friendly & efficient and we were soon on our way to the Sea Facing executive room with a baby crib already set up. It was a comfortable room and what I would deem as *old school* luxury. The bed was comfortable and we appreciated the little gift of creams and snacks. We were exhausted from a full day of touring around the Masada & Dead Sea - so we ordered in room service. It was delivered quickly and was tasty - nothing fancy, but just what we needed. Breakfast the next morning offered a vast variety of different options and the staff were well managed & ensured that everyone was well looked after. A good start to our last day in Israel. We spent the morning walking along the promenade - which is right there! And our last hour before our airport transfer in the hotel bar lounge enjoyed a drink/snacks. My only negative was that the wifi was patchy in our room and the tv reception was snowy. But these were minor as we didn't really spend much time in our room at all.
If you're looking for a hotel with great access to the beach then this may be your choice though their beach is not private. However the rooms and food are just at par. The city overall was at the bottom of all I visited on my trip to Israel.
I'v been there for one night for business, i booked the executive suite - i expected a bigger room, but i can't complane, the room was very clean and tidy and the bathroom was great, you have everything you need in the room, also you get free access to the lounge, which is always nice :) . the hotel in general is a bit old, and not so modern, but everything is great, the breakfast is wonderful (better than most of Europian 5 star hotels and i'v been in lot's of them) you will find many kinds of dishes and you will not stay hungry :) the wi-fi is very good and fast, and it was free, and they have parking in the hotel - which is great in Tel Aviv it will cost you about 70 nis per day about 16 Euro - which is cheap. the hotel located near the beach - so you can walk to the beach, and also to the center of the city easily - so the location is also great, the staff is very helpful and nice - generly i would highly recomend this hotel..
The hotel is nice and well located, but when it comes to the staff. They are not so nice. First time coming they assigned me a room when getting to the too the door was whose open and couldn't closed. So I went back downstairs to the reception and the told them about the door and I don't feel safe and rather have another room. The guy straight up told me no he won't change the room but they are sending someone to fix the door. So I went back upstairs (really mad) I've waited 15 mins no one shows up (mind up I came from a 11 hrs flight I was really tired), so I came downstairs and told them no one showed up. The guy told me really rudely we'll wait we send someone 😡. Went back upstairs the handyman tried to fix the door but couldn't and said they need to change your room (in my head I was like duh). Came back downstairs (45mins went by with all that agitation) the guy assigned a "Downgrade" room. I was not happy at all, I am queen of making a scene when I'm not treating right but boy I was so tired that I let it go. I recommend this hotel just for the location and also the breakfast they're serving. Beside the staff are not really nice and make you feel like you bothering them when requesting anything (except for the two ladies that I saw working).
for the past 8 months, i've been staying at the Dan during work trips. the concierge, E, has recommended amazing restaurants, made reservations, scheduled tours, given directions and assisted me in many ways. today, however, Anna and E helped me to return home to the US with a treasured souvenir. they went out of their way to obtain this item...in just a few minutes! i was truly at a loss for words. service -yes. hospitality - yes. but, their efforts to help me with a seemingly insignificant request...it was pure kindness. i will see them again next week. it's always a pleasure to stay at the Dan.

Only pro its across the street from the beach. However the rooms are like broom closets. Claim to fame Gene Simmons stayed here. His face is plastered all over this mess of a hotel. Renovate this place. Decor right out of 1970's. Beds are uncomfortable, hallways are noisy, and there is one outlet in the room. On top of all this glory is the rude unaccommodating staff. Find another property. They should be embarrassed
Stayed for 5 nights. Hotel is a great location opposite the fantastic beach mid way along! Great breakfast with a good spread to suit all tastes. Housekeeping and security my issue. When we had the turndown service my earrings which were sat on the side of the bathroom sink before I went out were not there on our return. Security did come end see us and I did a report and I know they questioned the staff but that was basically it ... no apology or offer of compensation or anything .. the earrings were not expensive but had sentimental value. This left a very nasty taste in my mouth. Housekeeping was so hit and miss! They always forgot to do something. One day they cleaned the room without leaving us with any toilet paper! Other days no toiletries, not emptying the bins, not providing bath mat, not tidying the bathroom. Should be able to do better than this especially when there are so many comments about housekeeping. Staff need to be more friendly and not just be nice to the rich Americans!
I stayed 4 days at the Dan Tel Aviv, It was my first time in Israël and in my opinion, they definitely don't have the same meaning of a 5 stars hotel... The room has been cleaned 2 times on my 4 days trip, it's a shame! The service at the breakfast was terrible and very slow. I think it's time for the hotel to invest in some renovations... However, I enjoyed the city and Joanna from the reception was always helpful to improve my stay. Maybe she saved my trip.
we got Compensation a full dinner in the restaurant at the hotel. the big legend was our host pini vaknin that work there around 30 years and knows important persons like : rabin & shimon pertz. he was so nice and professional and we wont forget him. the first dishes were average but we enjoy the main dishes. thank u pini for your warm host
