Stayed here for three nights - was a bit concerned about some of the previous reviews - whilst I agree that it's always nice to have brand new shiny rooms as long as it's clean and well kitted out I'm happy and the Tel Aviv beach fits that description. Anyone who lives by the sea knows it's a constant battle against salt air and paintwork always expect to see pockets of rust and exposed elements when a hotel is this close to the beach.
I stayed in an executive room on the 12th floor and the angle of the hotel means that most all rooms can view the beach - directly opposite I had a view of the Leonardo hotel, but to the left was the sea and beach and sitting out of the balcony provided a full view.
I didn't have breakfast in the main place but instead took the lighter options on offer in the Club lounge on the 9th floor which was nice and bright and usually quite empty.
It's true that the Reception is a bit busy, mainly because of it's proximity to the front door and width but check in was fairly quick and the general amenities around the hotel are good; there's a small shop on the -1 floor selling bits and pieces (although no beverages unfortunately) and a couple of bars and restaurants. There's a general shop selling most things around 40 metres from the hotel on the beach too.
Staff were friendly and efficient and I wish other hotels had the lift system this hotel does.
The walk along the promenade to Jaffa takes around 45 mins which provided it's not in the blazing sun is a nice walk.
All things considered this is a good place to stay if you want to be close to the beach.
