"Friendly staff, large rooms"
The hotel is well located, great seaside views and to nice neighbourhoods, eg Neve Tzedek. Interior, it is a typical large hotel, lacking charm. The staff is enormously friendly and helpful and I appreciated the email during stay, requesting feedback. Rooms are large, but need an update, being very old fashioned and flaking paint or very noisy AC that I needed to turn off during the night. Overall, good business hotel in great location.
"Obviously, Overrated, Overpriced, Overblown"
I booked this hotel for a weekend break, FIRST MISTAKE READ THE SMALL PRINT. No breakfast included, ch-ching 30$ each to add to the extortionate off-season rates. Second mistake, room location, no sea view ch-ching extra 30$ for room upgrade. Parking yes but ch-ching not free but discounted rates of 10$ a day. It seemed that everything in this hotel costs 4 times the local cost. Bottled water 8$, Beer 10$ even the snacks cost 4 times the regular price. Check-in at 2pm and turfed out at 12. Not normal for a weekend hotel in Israel were you might expect to be able to stay in your room until sunset. The staff I don't think smiled once, they seemed as though they were doing you a favour . I went to this hotel to relax and thought by the end tat I had been taken to the cleaners. Of all the hotels in Tel Aviv unless you are being hosted conference or such like I would steer very clear of the Intercontinental David it is overrated, definitely overpriced and overblown. A major disappointment. Not recommended.
"Everything you would expect"
Definitely qualifies as a 5 star hotel - Great location, excellent service, and a breakfast buffet out of this world (except on Shabat). My special thanks to Mr. Niv Cohen, a concierge who went out of his way to make our stay truly delightful
"Good business hotel, handy location"
4 nights in the David Intercontinental in November. I am generally a big fan of Tel Aviv's fantastic and thriving boutique hotel scene, but if you need to stay at a big all services hotel as I did for a conference, then the David Intercontinental does it about as well as anyone in Tel Aviv. There are plenty of tacky places in Tel Aviv along the beach front, so it is refreshing to stay at one with quite a bit of class. The rooms are fine, a reasonable size and well serviced. Just a couple of minor gripes but not enough to change the star rating from 5 stars. The shower, in the bath, is a fixed fitting and to get it spraying you just right , you invariable stand on the plug, stopping the water. It is really quite ridiculous. Israel seems not to have good tilers and the finish around the edges in the bathroom was a bit of a dog's breakfast, but having said that , I have seen it in many places there. The internet worked well and was included in our package, the breakfast was outstanding , and they deliver a paper to your door in multiple languages. It is a busy place , it was full when I was there, but it still worked well. It is well located in the sense that it is close to the atmospheric Carmel market, close to the boutiques of Neve Tzedek, there are some good eateries close by, and you can walk to Jaffa. The beach is right opposite, so it has a lot going for it. Cost wise, dearer than you might expect , but not outrageous. A good choice for this style of accommodation.
"Excellent location. Quiet rooms."
This hotel is situated on the best part of the Tel Aviv beach across the street from Charles Clore park and the promenade. Most every room has at least a partial view of the Sea. Our room was very quiet -- we heard no noise from inside nor from the very busy street that the hotel is on. We had a standard (classic) room which was spacious and comfortable. The staff are wonderful. Everyone was helpful and pleasant, but not necessarily friendly. Two people in particular deserve mention. Lydia and reception addressed our concern about being unable to open a stuck window by calling maintenance as I stood there, then followed up with a call to the room to make sure the issue was taken care of. Then there is Arik the barista who takes great pride in making each cappuccino a work of art. The breakfast buffet is lavish with a variety of items from varying cuisines, including traditional American, Israeli, and Asian. Another reviewer mentioned the atmosphere as being somewhat clinical. I agree. The tables are a bit crowded, but we when were there not many other guests were, so it was not bothersome.
