Dan Tel-Aviv

Tel Aviv, Israel

Virgin rating

The hotel

Overlooking the beach and close to Tel Aviv's bustling centre, the Dan Tel Aviv was one of the first luxury hotels to be built in the city. Having seen many celebrities walk the hallways, you'll feel like a celeb yourself when you step through the front doors and enter the modern splendour. You can choose between an indoor and outdoor pool, as well as a few different dining options. And at the end of a busy day (or night), retreat to your cosy room for some well-deserved down time.

It’s an old yet very unprofessional, unorganised hotel . We travel at least once a year to Israel , I insisted on staying at the DAN because I never stayed there before and I regret now Staff caught spraying my perfume as wife walked in room(security breach) , We complained immediately to reception and we’re approached by a manager ( MAYA) that apologised and promised to compensate us , followed up by letting friends and family to come in to the pool and accommodate us with few treats ( ice creams , beers, ) and wipes out the room service charges . For us , it was the fact the our privacy was breached and that who really knows what staff are doing in our rooms when we are not there . We were approached by head of security that promised us the guy who went through our belongings was fired( we never asked for the offender to get fired yet we were told that ) , that was a lie as we saw the same guy every day working in different rooms ! As we enquired about that with the general manager (Ilan ) , he “wasn’t sure” why we were told that by the head of security . The rooms are old and some electrical sockets were not working . AVOID THE DAN TEL AVIV!!! We contacted management and they lied saying they never stated they will fire the offender. Bellboys greeted us with his mouth Full of food . Poor hospitality through and through . It was a very expensive and did not justify the price we paid as we really did not enjoy our stay . Read less

It couldn’t have got off to a worse start. We arrived after midnight - it took 45 mins to check in despite no queue and only a group of three. We were told there was a problem with the computer - any proper 5* hotel would let you go to your bedroom and sort in the morning. Not this one. Breakfast was average at best.

It couldn’t have got off to a worse start. We arrived after midnight - it took 45 mins to check in despite no queue and only a group of three. We were told there was a problem with the computer - any proper 5* hotel would let you go to your bedroom and sort in the morning. Not this one. Breakfast was average at best. Buffet style with a la carte option as well. Nothing looked over appetising and again underwhelming against many other hotels I’ve used during business. Room - clean, tidy and arguably the best part of the review. I did receive a sea view which was great. This is the ‘new’ section of the hotel. I understand there is an older section which isn’t quite as nice. A colleague l received a non-smoking room which smelt badly of cigarettes. They did change the room upon asking but again something to be aware of. Service overall relatively pleasant. Not 5* service but not atrocious (outside of check in). One day at breakfast we were very well attended to. Overall not the best (and certainly not 5*) and not the worst. Reasonable priced for tel aviv. So as long as you manage expectations around the perception of stars vs the cost, it probably isn’t the worst of options. Read less

Food was 5 starts - both breakfast and dinner. Service deserved zero. Always a single person at the reception. Impossible to get a menu or find out restaurant prices. When calling from a room, you are bounced from one number to another until someone agrees to consider your request. The room was booked for 3 people and had 2 towels, 2 cups etc.… Read more
Food was 5 starts - both breakfast and dinner. Service deserved zero. Always a single person at the reception. Impossible to get a menu or find out restaurant prices. When calling from a room, you are bounced from one number to another until someone agrees to consider your request. The room was booked for 3 people and had 2 towels, 2 cups etc. on arrival. Humidity is unbearable - even the dry clothes become wet and water splashes in the bathroom do not dry out. The majority of staff do not speak English and openly ignore non-native speakers. It is classed as a beach hotel, however there is no direct beach access or any arrangements to use the beach facilities. After the check out a duty manager attempted to improve the experience by offering a free lounge, but we only had half an hour left to enjoy. This was the most expensive and the most unwelcome hotel we stayed in. Though buffet food was amazing! Read less

Just finished an 8 days vacation in Israel, great place with great weather, beaches, food and people but the Dan Tel Aviv was absolute mistake, they do charge as a 5 star hotel ( we had 2 rooms, family of 5) but the hotel is Old, rooms are in not that good condition (including the ones that are already renovated) but the worst is that 99% of the staff has no preparation for working in the hotel. There are so many bad things that I can write regarding our stay in the hotel but since basically it was all bad experience I won’t go in to long story. Just if you can better go to other good hotel that appreciate there costumers and give better service for what they charge. Just to make it clear we are so disappointed that we are looking into the possibility to demand the hotel for a full refund because it’s obvious we paid for something we have never received.
