Historical Traveler Reviews Park Plaza Orchid Tel Aviv
Best Hotel for a Reasonable Price
Stayed here two nights. Great location. Walk to the beach, Carmel Market and Nachalat Binyamin where the craftsmen display their items on Tue/Fri. The staff were very helpful and courteous. The pool was adequate. Our room was clean and well apointed with a european style bathroom. Everything worked including a.good air-conditioner with a new thermostat in the room. Can get much better for around $150 in this seson.
Overall very positive experience
The position is brilliant, right on the beach and the tourist/restaurant area. The pool is small but clean and wasnt too crowded, overlooks the sea.
The staff were all friendly and polite although they could have handled the room change more efficiently when my aircon went down. After refusing a lesser room, I was allocated a well equipped, clean room with a safe, fridge, telly in the bathroom and all the extras. No minibar which was a sad moment. Also you cant get much to eat there but the cafes are so close it doesnt matter.
It is by no means a luxury hotel but I had a good stay there, I feel I got value for money and would recommend.
The Yamit rocks
This hotel was amazing and so affordable! Spacious oceanview rooms for $140, and rooms with oceanfront balconies overlooking the Mediterranean for only $165! This is at least $50 cheaper than the hotels next door. The hotel staff was very nice and accomodating and the rooms were huge, clean, and comfortable. I would definitely recommend this place for a relaxing stay with a beautiful view.
Location & Price Can't Be Beaten
Simply this is a fantastic location, right on the beach on Bograshov, walking to the shops of Dizengoff, even Shienkin. The bathroom was new with a nice walk in shower, the air-con worked and although I had no balcony the window opened fully which gave a nice outdoor feeling, with a view to the beach. I got a great rate on [--] (£77 a night) and would stay here again for the price and location alone.
Good budget hotel on the beach.
Stayed from March 2nd - 5th, 2006. Good hotel with excellent location on beach and next to American Embassy. Breakfast is not included and is expensive. Rooms are not fancy but who needs a fancy hotel when you are sightseeing. Suggest bringing your own soap as hotel soap is cheapest brand available. Rooms have a small refrigerator which is plus.
Good location, and for travellers on a budget
We stayed here for 2 nights in Nov. Room was very nice, we booked through the park plaza website and got a great deal for $72 a night, we had a partial view of ocean. They have free parking around the back of hotel. Lobby was small, and I can't comment on food b/c we did not eat in the hotel. Location is very central. Two minutes from the beach. Good place to stay if you are on a budget and only need a couple of nights.
Avoid at all costs
I made my reservation through Expedia. I called the hotel 3 times on the day of reservation, and 3 times I was told that they did not have any reservation in my name.
Unsurprisingly, I never made it to the hotel.
Three days later I was charged for a no-show.
The hotel ignored me for 2 weeks, and afterwards I was contacted by a manager, who told me that she would not even check the case since I don't have the name of the representative I talked to, and I have not recorded call.
I have stayed at the Yamit on 4 prior visits to Israel, and am about to stay there again in the very near future. The hotel is smaller than many of its Hayarkon neighbors, and perhaps less "glitzy," but it presents an excellent value. Recent upgrades include daily and hourly wireless internet access in the lobby, and in many rooms. The breakfast room is pleasant and quiet, with excellent views of the ocean, and the buffet is comprehensive without being overwhelming.
As far as the brusque reception some have described, that kind of greeting can happen anywhere, perhaps particularly in Israel! It's a unique place. On all of my visits, however, I've been well-received and the staff was always helpful.
Now, contemplating my fifth stay, I did investigate staying at a more prestigious address for a business conference, but I didn't see why I needed to spend $50 + more each night of my stay, when the Yamit is smaller, more intimate and has most everything one could want.
The Yamit is definitely one of the better hotels on the Hayarkon strip in Tel Aviv. Many started out as 4 star hotels, but have become worn down over the years. Our room at the Yamit was recently renovated -well-decorated with a cool new bathroom - except for the unfortunate feature of having see-through glass doors. The front desk was pleasant and helpful and the pool was small but fun.
Good Value Hotel
The Yamit Park Plaza offers good value and good facilities and a nice location on the hotel strip beside the Mediterranean. The lobby overlooked the ocean and was very nice. The breakfast room also had a superb view and excellent complimentary and extensive breakfast buffet. The rooms were pleasant and in a modern Scandinavian style. My criticisms were that the check-in was unfriendly and indifferent, without much tourist information available. The hotel did check luggage for my final day. In the room itself, the carpeting and windows (which opened up) were unclean. The bathroom had only a partial glass enclosure for the shower, which allowed for spraying water all over the place. Good potential if the service and cleaning can be improved.

... all of the well-built apartment buildings and shopping malls, it doesn't look war-torn. Plenty of the buildings look nicer than a lot of places where people live in Israel. However, there aren't kids in the streets, so I'm not sure I can declare it as safe as the buildings make it appear to be.
