Bedroom at Dan Tel Aviv, Tel Aviv, Israel

Dan Tel Aviv

From the Israeli chain brand, Dan Hotels, The Dan Tel Aviv is one of the city’s first luxury properties, marked by a multi-colored façade and sizeable rooftop pool overlooking the sea. While guests must cross the street to access the beach, The Dan appeals to those who dislike the heavy flow of cruise ship traffic at the nearby Hilton Tel Aviv.

The Dan remains a relatively discreet choice for those who wish to be on the water. With a modest lobby and separate living and dining areas, the property feels smaller than it is and remains less congested than the other five-star choices along the coastline. The hotel is corporate in feel and design, but has a modern, minimalist style. An emphasis is placed on the sweeping views of the sea visible through floor-to-ceiling windows in guest rooms and public spaces.

The rooms and suites are outfitted in neutral colors and have marble bathrooms, along with WiFi and iPod connectivity. Accommodations at The Dan are spacious, clean and comfortable. It is worthwhile to opt for the Executive Sea View rooms or suites, all marked by enormous glass windows with uninterrupted water views (the suites feature balconies or terraces too). These rooms typically feature a separate shower and bathtub and include lounge access.

The hotel offers a fitness center, spa and kid’s club as well as a rooftop indoor and outdoor pool with lounge chairs facing the beach and sea below. The gourmet kosher restaurant Hayarton 99 serves excellent meals and the hotel’s breakfast buffet offers a lovely variety of yogurts, pastries, spreads and an array of proteins, which rival some of Israel’s best breakfasts.

Perhaps what is best about The Dan is their distinct sense of service. The staff at the hotel is extremely friendly, welcoming and eager to assist. While the facilities may not be perfect, the team at The Dan puts every effort into ensuring that guests’ experiences are as luxurious, carefree and seamless as possible.

Bedroom at Hotel Montefiore, Tel Aviv, Israel

Hotel Montefiore

Located just around the corner from the historic Rothschild Boulevard, the Montefiore Hotel is unique in that it offers a personal, intimate hotel experience above a trendy restaurant. Set away from the beach and housed in a 1920’s mansion, the modern property feels secluded and quiet, despite the lively bar scene during the evening. The rooms are airy and light—enhanced by balconies in eight of the accommodations—and are clearly design-oriented. All of the rooms have shelves artfully filled with books and contemporary photography adorns the bedrooms and hallways. The emphasis is definitely more on the cool look than serious luxury; most rooms have only showers not tubs. Check-in can be oddly confusing, as guests enter into the bar and restaurant that serves double duty as the lobby. This is in keeping with a stylish yet minimalist theme; while the hotel features a gym and spa, they are not what one might expect from a true five-star property. The crowd is cool, young and creative for the most part so they are more concerned with the hip feeling than serious service.
