We actually live nearby, but as an Accor fan and Gold member, I had to try this hotel.
So we arrived after work, especially to be in the centre of Tel Aviv for the New Year's celebrations.
The receptionist Shiran welcomed me very warm and kindly. She also gave us vouchers for free drinks at the bar, since I'm a gold.
Anyway, we went up to the 8th privileged floor, and got a beautiful room watching the see. We had 6 free bottles of cold beverage, chocolates and Nespresso espresso machine, plus bath robe and slippers.
The only disadvantages were that the shower was tiny tiny, almost impossible to move, and the stream was awfully weak.
Later, when we went down to the bar, the bar tender (Moran) was nice clueless what should we do with the voucher, so we had to wait for 10 minutes.
There were free glasses of wine in the lobby for the New Year.
On the next day, we woke up and went to breakfast, catered by the large Israeli coffee chain, Cafe Cafe. Well, relatively to Israeli breakfast at hotels - this was terrible. Not a large variety, the vegetable seemed tired and old, and no dessert. You could read my review for Eilat Princess Hotel from month ago, to see what a REAL breakfast in an Israeli hotel is.
Also, there were no silver ware nor clean table. The waitress (same Moran from last night) set our table with knife & fork, but didn't clean it.
Although there is no justification for the high price (215 Euros/ 295$ per night, especially in comparison to Mercure in Salzburg, Austria which costs 90 Euros), the service was lovely, and the room very well equipped.
We will be back.
