"Ok for one night."
Good : the small but nice swimming pool, View from the pool is breathtaking..And the location is great.. Rooms were clean, the view was great - pool from one side and Tel Aviv from another. Bad : Dining room was always overcrowded (we had dinner and breakfast). The plates were taken so quickly - we had to leave someone on guard....Some of the food was ok. Some was tastless and some was not edible..... Coffee cups were in great demand - only paper cups near the machine and most of the time no cups at all. the suite we shared had a big sitting room but the bedroom was very small - the right side of the bed was about 30 cm from a wall and the bathroom door - I actually think it is dangerous.... Even if safe it's poor interior design. The curtains had holes in them,..
I stayed in Leonardo City twice. Once for a period of 4 weeks and the second time for 2 weeks. Let me start and recommend the hotel - I will return to the hotel any chance I get. The hotel team are all very friendly and provide great hospitality and service. The rich breakfast provides good american servings coupled with mediterranean traditional dishes. Sitting in the dinning room with a view to the 10 floor pool and across to the mediterranean sea is relaxing and allowed me to start my days with great smile on my face. The location is simply fantastic. The hotel is located in the heart of Tel Aviv-Ramat Gan and in seconds you are either on main roads, minutes from Tel Aviv or Ramat Gan. The area has many different stores for shopping for walkers. It is also a walking distance from the train station which you can use to go to other Cities like Haifa or Jerusalem. The rooms are large and very accommodating. They are similar in size to a traditional US hotel room. (This is not typical room size for other hotels at Israel). My room was always clean and fresh. Bottom line - will go back at any chance I get.
"I'm sure it was lovely once upon a time"
I stayed here due to its proximity to the office I was visiting, so not my choice (I would've gone for something close to the beach in Tel Aviv). Sadly this hotel has seen better days. My room smelled like an ashtray despite being 'no smoking' and surrounded by other 'no smoking' rooms. I couldn't work it out. The room didn't have a guide to the hotel or its services, so it's a good thing I didn't require room service or need to call housekeeping to send up an iron and ironing board (I don't understand why all hotels that market themselves as 'international' don't have ironing facilities in every room). The bathroom needs refurbishing. The blackout curtains need replacing (see photos). Breakfast is an interesting experience. Give yourself lots of time if you want to order eggs or waffles. Lots and lots of time. Foreigners not familiar with local food will have fun trying to guess what the dishes are because none of them are labelled. I tried asking but there was a language barrier. Trying to find somewhere to sit can be fun, especially at peak times. The staff were not able to reset the tables quickly enough to meet demand. It's a small space and very busy, especially if there's a birthday or wedding party staying. On the plus side there is a lot of food to choose from. On my final day I was late checking out (35-40 minutes) because I was on a business call. THREE unfriendly men arrived at the room to find out why I had not checked out. Rather heavy handed I think, a call to the room would have sufficed. Those men must have been busy because quite a few people checked out after I did. I will be advising my Embassy to remove this hotel from its recommended list.
"Average hotel in good location"
Locally owned restaurant which follows the tradions.... So Friday and Saturday don't expect international standard service. The hotel is dated, not up to standard. The breakfast has awful coffee, which ever you try. From the coffee pot or from the coffee machine. They both taste disgusting. Plenty of food to choose from but on Friday extremely busy if you want eggs..... Expect to cue for a while. The rooms are ok. Sometimes you get a towel which is nearly see through, when you ask to fill the minibar it can take 3 days or more. Especially if it's on Friday or Saturday. But... It's Israël... Just be aware of it. The location is convenient and close to the motorway. Expect traffic though around the hotel but you don't hear it in the room. Beds and pillows ok, amenities ok, coffee and tea with kettle but no creamer.... Swimming pool is small and can be overcrowded since the hotel is populair for parties/weddings.....Lot of guests. Definitely not more then 3 stars. If pushed really hard.... Maybe 4.
Very good value for money for the position. Mostly a positive experience. Underground guaranteed parking for ₪60 a day where you can come and go as many times as you like. We needed the hotel so we could go to a concert in The Hayrkon Park one stop on the train, station opposite the hotel. Breakfast the usual Israeli breakfast buffet for the first time in my life I there was Cava on the buffet was tempted but I think my other half would have had my guts for garters if I drank at 06:30!! Room was a good size great television with a good selection of channels. Mini bar not practical for use as a personal fridge. Bathroom fine except the magnifying mirror no where near the sink. Sadly there was a slight smell of cigarette smoke in the room. Corridor also had a slightly bad smell. Nothing to eat in the area or in the hotel late at night except at a Sushi/Oriental take away which we used and was actually very good. Swimming pool looked good but we didn't use it.
