“The place to come back”
Reviewed 30 January 2013

I travel to Tel Aviv quite often and always choose Leonardo Basel as my place to stay. This hotel has a wonderful location: 2 minutes walk from the beach, 5 minutes walk from the busy streets of Ben-Yehuda and Dizengoff and 15 minutes from Dizengoff Center mall.
But the location is not the main reason I choose this hotel over and over. The reason is the great hospitality of all the hotel staff. They really committed to give the guests the best treatment they can, with care and with a smile, giving you the feeling that this is your second home.
Beside that the hotel has a great Israeli breakfast (also here, you will get the best welcome from the restaurant staff) and a free internet access (something you won’t find in other Tel Aviv hotels).
Just make sure you have a room with the Mediterranean Sea view, and you all set.

I would have been ok with the bare bones feel of the room, but after spending 3 nights at the Leonardo, we got a much nicer room with a view of the ocean and an even better breakfast across the street at the Crowne Plaza. Since there are so many hotels on Hayarkon Street, you should consider checking out other hotels just by walking up to their check in desks. They all save a certain number of rooms for those who just walk in.

Room Tip: Pick higher floors to avoid sound of 5 a.m. trash pick up!

Nice hotel, with a pleasant staff. A young lady at reception was particularly helpful (Shai). She went out of her way to assure my comfort and transportation.
The beach is across a rather intimidating highway, but is easily crossed at a nearby crosswalk.
The road behind the hotel is 5 minutes away 9 (a right and a right) and has many lively shops and galleries. Worth a walk "around the block". 2 good money changers on that street.

Room Tip: Get a room that faces the Med.

We spent 10 nights there. The location is just perfect, close to the beach, restaurants, bars supermarkets all that you need. The service was excellent, too. One night we came back late and we smelled cigarets smoke (it's a none smoking hotel!) we called to the reception desk, they apologized and immediately gave us another room. Too bad they don't enforce the non smoking policy more strictly. We ate breakfast once and it was very good too (great coffee, wonderful selection of food items, cheeses, fruits, vegetables, breads, pastries and so much more). The rooms were clean. All in all - great value for the money spent.

Room Tip: We think that choosing a quiet room is a better choice. Although the back rooms don't enjoy a se...

Dear Guest,
We appreciate that you took the time to review our hotel after your stay. Our location indeed places you close to everywhere that is worthwhile seeing in Tel Aviv. Leonardo Basel Hotel is smoke free by law. Our rooms are non smoke and don’t have an ash tray in order to emphasize that. Nevertheless, we can't follow every guest. If it comes to our attention we send a security representative to request our policy of non smoking be maintained. We are pleased to know that you have enjoyed our large and diversified Israeli breakfast buffet and overall stay in our hotel. We hope to see you soon back at The Leonardo Basel.

I was in this hotel for one night while I was waiting to go to the airport very early in the morning. I walked to the property from the central bus station. The man who checked me in noticed how tired I looked and switched my rooms so I could check in early. It was greatly appreciated! The staff was all very nice and helpful and the location of this hotel is great. I enjoyed being just across the street from the beach, not too far from the Jafa district and really close to all the restaurants by the port. I don't ever intend to go to Tel Aviv again, but if for some reason I do end up there again i will definitely stay in this hotel.

Leonardo Basel does offer a few really excellent reasons to stay... The Israeli breakfast buffet is really yummy! The team at the concierge desk was one of the friendliest I've met. They were knowledgeable and eager to book dinner reservations, transport. The location is unbeatable. You're directly on HaYarkon and meters from the beach. Grab your beach towel and soak in the middle eastern sun and mediterranean sea. I was not surprised at how dated the common areas and rooms were. Really, just the lobby is pretty. This is true of many TLV properties, though. That being said, the rooms were kept very clean and the maid staff were very detailed in their work.

my husband and i stayed at this hotel with our kids for a weekend in december. Kobi, the duty manager, handled our reservation, and did so very professionally. We got everything we asked for.For example, we asked for a crib, and sure enough there was a crib in our room beautifully made with baby sheets. also,the room,we got didnt feel crowded even with the crib.
The restaurant's variety is great.
While we were enjoying our roast during Friday night in the dinning hall, our toddler was munching away at his hotdog,
The staff is very child-friendly. Due to a virus, our 2 year old threw up in the lobby. In most places, such an event woould cause angry stares and sighs, but not at basel.
The staff\s only concern was whether our boy was ok. Needless to say, the mess was cleaned up within the minute.
