I think Tel Aviv in general is full of hospitable people and everyone is quite welcoming. But the hotel grows on you. My first impression was that the hotel was very quite but later I realised it’s that privacy and exclusiveness which makes it so different.

This hotel was a destination in itself. Eleventh century crusader walls are literally in the courtyard and at the entrance. The historic wing in which we stayed retains most of the structural elements of the original 1875 hospital. On arrival and throughout our stay, the staff was welcoming, friendly and attentive. Special mention goes to Harry, the concierge, but all the staff were wonderful. Our room was spacious and both it and, remarkably, the bathroom had the original 20+ foot ceilings. Breakfast was a treat, with traditional fare and special items cooked to order. Taken in the outdoor courtyard (weather permitting). The hotel is an oasis in the bustling city - close to so much of interest within walking distance in Jaffa/south Tel Aviv, but relaxing calm within its stone walls. We're already planning our return trip. One item of note that will be important to some - the hotel restaurant is not certified kosher. Read less

I stayed 2 nights at this wonderful hotel. The facilities were great as were rooms and food. But best of all was Harry the consierge, tiredless in helping me sort all travel obstacles during the Pandemic.

We arrived after such a stressful time and journey to find the entrance confusing and no staff at the front of the hotel. We had booked a deluxe room and were upgraded. Cost of stay over $7,000 for 12 nights. We had a welcome drink and were taken to our room. It’s in the new part of the hotel so no excuse for the room to be small unless it was deliberately designed that way. We had 2 large suitcases. The room we were shown to was so small. The room is form over function. The shower room is tiny. The room had insufficient floor space to put both cases down and only a small wardrobe. (Insufficient for 2 people). It had a balcony and a sea view. The wardrobe was so small that you could not store the luggage and if it had been left in the room we would not have been able to get out of at least one side of the bed. The room is suitable for 1 person with a small amount of luggage. We had booked for 12 nights for a special event - my 60th birthday and our anniversary and to show my partner Tel Aviv. We are loyal Marriott customers and love the luxury collection. We were shown other rooms which were bigger but came with a hefty price tag of an additional $570 PER NIGHT which effectively doubled the price of our stay. The team had no authority but “spoke to Managemant” and offered to reduce the upgrade fees but it was still another $4000 increase in cost just to have a room that we could actually use from a practical point of view. The hotel is empty and it felt we were being taken advantage of at the prices quoted although I know Tel Aviv is expensive. Also, not all of the hotel is open due to Covid restrictions. (The chapel bar). So we decided to stay for 1 night as we had no choice due to waiting for PCR test results. This has severely damaged my relationship with Marriott. Ruined my plans for the holiday for my 60th birthday (Oct 30th) and our 15th anniversary celebrations (Nov 3rd). What really annoyed me was that the duty manager had no discretion and the management making the decisions did not speak to me despite my asking for them to. Cowardly and unprofessional behaviour.
