There are no airport hotels. Go into Tel Aviv to spend the day and evening. You have to be at the airport at 4am. The hotel will get you a taxi to pick you up and get you there on time. You might want to take a hotel in the south end of the city near the beach, such as the Dan Panorama. Prices are dependent on the season you are arriving.

Near the airport means staying in Tel Aviv. Try to book directly with the hotel and ask for an early check-in. Take the train from the airport, not a taxi. You'll be out at the highest rush hour and it can take ages to get to Tel Aviv. Using the train you might get to Tel Aviv at 0930-1000, rest, and enjoy the city. Remember to be at the airport 3 hours before departure.

Hello

The distance to Jerusalem from the airport is not really that longer from Tel-Aviv. If it is still possible, I would suggest to have a day in Jerusalem and visit the old city with so many attractions.

Have you been to Israel before? If no, I agree with Giora -- I would go to Jerusalem.

Add my vote to spending the day in Jerusalem. Travel time is about the same from the airport as it is to Tel Aviv and if you've never been you should take advantage of the opportunity to at least get a taste of this amazing city.

Before "voting" why are you coming for only 24 hours. If it is a mini-vacation--stay in Jerusalem. If it is for business-where are your meetings?

Israel is tinnnny, the airport is 30 min drive or train to tel aviv. Stay there and go to the beach!
