This hotel is one of the few chain hotels away from the beach. It was built just a few years ago and is part of the Azrieli center in Tel Aviv.
Immediately adjacent to the hotel is one of Tel Aviv's major malls. I arrived Saturday 6 PM and the mall was still closed but would reopen just past 7 PM.
The hotel check-in was friendly and quick. Although I'm a IHG Platinum the lounge access was not included. However the Internet was free and breakfast was included in my rate.
The room was very new and well appointed. It featured great views across the neighboring buildings and Tel Aviv. I also really liked the airy and spotless bathrooms.
The gym is in the 10th floor and is a gym in its own right. Most members buy a pass for monthly usage – so it's no hotel gym. There were dozens of cardio machines and a full set of weightlifting equipments. That's as good as it gets.
The best part of my stay was the breakfast. Fantastic salads, pastries, delicious cheese and friendly service. t probably was the best hotel breakfast I had in a long time. I was really impressed.
Parking in the garage directly under the hotel was at US$11/day which I found very reasonable.
The Internet was very fast and worked flawlessly.
All in all a great place in Tel Aviv if you can live without the beach. It's clean, new and has well above average service quality (for Israel that is). The rooms were spotless and the equipment modern. I'd love to come back!
