Imperial Hotel0.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
The rooms are very very bad, the door doesn't close well, rooms never cleaned, no respect of privacy (the morning i woke up and I realized the cleaning lady was trying to get in and she said that this is how they work because there is no "do not disturb" sign....
The Imperial has quite large rooms, well air conditioned (essential in Tel Aviv) and is less than a 5 minute walk to the beach. There are plenty of bars and restaurants nearby. I noted some earlier critical reviews about this place, but that was not my experience. My room was basic and the property is a bit dated, but everything is clean and works - so for the price it is reasonable value. It seems to be run by grumpy old men - but that's just the Israeli way and they are actually quite helpful, despite initial impressions to the contrary. A great feature of the hotel is that it houses 2 of Tel Aviv's top cocktail lounges on the ground floor: The Imperial; and La Otra. Both are absolutely first class and are great places to chill out, especially during Happy Hour when the prices are reduced by 50%. In the unlikely event that the managers are reading this, there is a simple thing that could make the hotel much, much better: improve breakfast. It is very basic - just some salads; toast; boiled eggs - and a tray of baked unrecognisable slab of vegetarian something. There is so much cheap fresh fruit available surely some of that could be easily supplied for some variety. And also some genuine coffee - even a cheap drip filter pot of the stuff. Israeli instant coffee is absolutely the worst in the world and tastes like Drano. It would be very easy to greatly improve breakfast for minimal expense to the hotel.
Yes, the hotel has seen better days, but the staff is very accommodating. The rooms are small but tidy. A block from the beach. Two blocks from the US Embassy. Both bars on the first floor are amazing cocktail bars. Food is also very good. If you don't need snooty service this is a great place to go to.
Absolutely dirty rooms!!! The price for this awful quality too high! Hotel don't worth it. U can find much more better for the same price! Stuff don't care about your comfort! They give normal rooms to European guests mostly ...
Can talk about only the location. Nothing else. Its a run down kind of situation. Needs a complete overhaul. Wifi was free but signal weak in parts of the room. The breakfast is not like other hotels in Tel Aviv and is disappointing. Definitely not repeating.
Staff is most paranoid (freak out in Hebrew when you enter the breakfast room because they assume you're not a hotel guest, don't want to give you a beach towel cause openly assume you'd steal it) & unprofessional (lose key of luggage room just before flight). Breakfast is a bad joke, absolute no-go for foodies. Only the cocktail bar on the ground floor is nice. Location is great, so you better chose the Brown Beach House hotel right next to Imperial
One night of hell the room was dirty the bathroom full of mold and dust. 3 stars but no hair drier the towels old. I cannot believe I stayed even one night. To top off the experience I have bites on my body. Did not eat breakfast as everything was dirty.
On arriving - first room light wouldnt work -second room the sheets was dirty and the floor was filthy -then moved back to first room with the light from the second, couldnt make it work -fourth room- pubic hair in one of the beds. Staff member was incredibly unapologetic. Told me I was getting an upgrade so would be grateful. As I was staying alone, it made no difference whether I was in a single room or a double so I really dont think that made a difference, especially when one of the beds was so dirty. Never got any price reduction. Manager was v nice but said owner couldnt do anything. A DISGRACE
The only good thing about this place is the location only 2 min. from the beach BUT: It's an old run down hotel. ugly inside poor furniture poor towels . Very low energies breakfast is poor . For this price you can get much better !!!!!
The hotel has a great location near to the beach and restaurants. The room was nothing special, but was clean and the plumbing worked. The breakfast buffet was especially good. The desk manager was very helpful to schedule a tour and taxi to the airport. He made our stay feel especially welcoming.
