Dan Tel Aviv5.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We arrived ahead of our tour group. We paid for the VIP transport service pick up at the airport and was not let down it was exceptional and well worth the added fee. They picked us up right outside the airplane and walked us through the whole process we were out within 15 minutes. Ralph and Noa were terrific at the front desk they are people pleasers. The staff were all great. Great exercise room. Great promenade walk across the street. The breakfast was amazing we did not get it with room but it was well worth the $$$. Food lined the perimeter of a very large room. The room overlooked the mediteraian room 812. Great view.
I could not seem to use the Wifi on my laptop. It was ok on my phone. I think the location of the hotel is excellent. The staff are very hlepful. And the choices for breakfast are very diverse and welcome.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Dan Tel Aviv. The room was spacious and lovely, the service was consistently excellent and the room was extremely clean. The quality of the food was top notch and the service during check in was efficient and courteous. Will definitely be returning!
I stayed for 6 nights and had a pleasant experience. Most staff are very helpful and approachable. Check-in did not took long and check-out timings are very flexible. Had a little communication issue in the end but that was thoroughly resolved by Hotel Customer Relations manager Angelique Rummer who was very helpful and welcoming from beginning till the very end. A big thankyou to Angelique! and everyone else at Dan Hotel Tel Aviv.Angelique! and evryone else at Dan Hotel Tel Aviv.
The hotel staff is very lovely except the Manager in the King David Lounge. He is very rude & obnoxious. The breakfast is very lovely. Still needs to be updated even though it's one of the most expensive hotels on the beach. Perfect location for restaurants and going to the Carmel Market.
Overall I loved my experience at the hotel, but what's interesting is that the second weekend was better than the first. >>>Reason for 4 stars instead of 5 - I think the hotel would benefit from updates & more consistent service experience<<< To explain: Friends and I stayed here twice during a week (arrival weekend in Israel, we left & traveled around the country, then returned to Dan Tel Aviv for our departure weekend) and what's interesting is the experiences were different. First weekend was OK, and did not feel luxurious. Second weekend felt very luxurious - we had the same amenities for each time. PROS >>Breakfast Buffet is EXCELLENT. Combination of buffet and made-to-order menu items (e.g. eggs, etc). Plenty of choices, super fresh vegetables, tasty breads, juices, fruits, yogurts, cheeses, salads, smoked fish, eggs, etc. >> Executive Lounge is WELCOMING & USEFUL. At first I was wondering why my husband arranged for this lounge - because our goal as tourists was to be out & about in Tel Aviv, not rooted in the hotel & breakfast buffet was already included. This ended up being a fantastic place to "touchdown" for a snack in late afternoon/early evening; sip a glass of wine overlooking the sea; enjoy tea & coffee service. >>Room facing the Sea is GREAT, and higher floor better. What's interesting here - first weekend we were placed on 2nd floor - and it was OK but the room was in need of updating, felt dark and tired. The next weekend we were placed on 4th floor (also a sea view) and the room felt full of light, more modern wall treatments, better carpet but smaller bathroom. etc. I think the room matters. >> Location! As others have written, this hotel sits ON THE BEACH, with a wide pedestrian-only promenade along the sea to walk all the way to Old Jaffa (which we did) or the other direction you can walk to a port with cafes, restaurants and stores (we walked there as well) >>INDOOR POOL. Great in winter to have an indoor pool & Jacuzzi. It's not in the actual hotel, you have to walk a short way through a tunnel/hallway to another building, but once you are there it was clean and felt refreshing. CONS >>SOME ROOMS ARE TIRED & NEED OF UPDATING. Be aware. A dark room, with tired furniture, old walls, and not a lot of light (compared to a modern /updated room) creates a very different experience and impacts your stay . >>STAFF INCONSISTENT. Example #1 There is waiter service even though the breakfast is buffet. Some mornings the waiter was assigned to us and was AMAZING (VItaly was his name?) and other mornings the waitress was slow, forgetful, and not engaged. Example #2 The Executive Lounge was inconsistent as well - the first weekend no waiter offered us coffee, or tea, etc. The second weekend (different server) they offered us a bottle of wine, tea service, clearing our plates, and really worked hard to spoil us.
we had a perfect weekend. our room was big and comfortable, and the view of the beach was lovely. the staff was nice and helpful, but the real star was the food. we had dinner and breakfast, both rich, fresh, with special gourmet dishes alongside traditional, very well made dishes.
Fantastic service and even better room quality. I would recommend the Dan to anyone traveling to Israel. The rooms were constantly kept clean and the staff was extremely helpful. The King David lounge was exceptional and always full of light fare.
Terrific view, excellent service, and fine rooms, well appointed and cared for. The Dan chain does things well. The breakfast buffet is among the best. We would stay there again and recommend the hotel to you.
the good points first: The hotel is very well located, directly on the beach front. And everything was really clean. An other good point is the breakfast. With the exception that there is no meat at all, but this was OK for a week. The hotel is strictly kosher, so very limited choice on shabbat. this applies as well to the spa, the indoor pool and the gym. all of them have very limited hours during shabbat. The hotel was apparently famous in the seventies. there are photos of celebrities hanging in the breakast room, and some celebrities wrote their signature on the floor in the entry hall. Nevertheless, this is an oldish hotel with an outdated decoration, all the years left their marks and I felt like in another time very often. there were also some technical issues , like the shower who was sometimes not working and just giving hot or cold water or the bathroom sink where the water was stuck. not good during a business trip The carpet in my room was really old and ugly. The hotel has a real problem with the staff, except two young ladies at the bar who were really friendly. The guys at the reception were not helpful at all, waiters in the restaurant were between unfriendly and rude. All in all a mixed experience in a hotel with a price not worth at all the value. In middle Europe this would be a 3 star, but never a 5. At the end my bill was almost 300$ too high as they charged me 150 for parking and 130 for the minibar ‘by mistake’.
