Royal floor was excelent! The room was very clean. From the Balcony nearly whole Tel Aviv could be seen...

Historical Traveler Reviews Carlton Tel Aviv
Laisse à désirer
Nous avons passé deux nuits au Carlton en août. L'arrivée à l'hôtel a été chaleureuse et efficace. En revanche, le groom nous a posé problème. Comme nous sommes arrivés tôt le matin, il a entreposé nos valises. Mais dans l'après-midi, il ne les a pas retrouvées bien que c'était les dernières dans la salle de rangement. Heureusement que je les ai aidés à les retrouver :)
La sécurité à l'entrée est négligée, elle est beaucoup mieux au Hilton ou au Sheraton.
Notre chambre était un peu vieille, ce n'était pas dramatique mais on voyait qu'elle avait besoin d'être rénovée dans les plus brefs délais. En revanche, les lits étaient de bonne qualité. La climatisation montrait également des signes de vieillesse, elle n'était pas facile à utiliser et il y avait un peu de moisissure.
L'hôtel n'est pas si mal situé, il y a quelques plages autour et l'accès aux routes qui mènent à l'aéroport et à Jérusalem est rapide. Il y a également une jolie petite piscine sur le toit. Une connexion à Internet sans fil est également disponible dans certaines parties du bâtiment.
Je vous le recommanderais pour un court séjour d'affaires si vous obtenez un bon prix. Pour des séjours plus longs ou avec votre femme, envisagez le Hilton, le Sheraton et le Dan.
Horrible, horrible place
I suppose the hotel itself is okay (nothing great, by any stretch of the imagination).
But on my way to check out, while walking down the long flight of stairs to the lobby that they'd neglected to put a warning that it had just been mopped, I took a very bad fall. When I crashed to the bottom, I saw that every one of the staff members and concierge quickly looked away and pretended not to notice. Not a one of them bothered to help, or even enquire if I was okay. Fortunately for them, I was in a state of shock and didn't pass out and need care until after I left). Irresponsible and disgusting human beings (if you can call them that). DON'T stay there.
Good hotel. Nice rooms.
My husband and I stayed at the Carlton on Sept 9th and 10th, 2006. We liked the hotel very much. The hotel offers good service and clean accomodations. There is a rooftop pool and bar with incredible panoramic views of the city. The rooms are nice. Spacious bedrooms and bathrooms. We had a small terrace overlooking the beach. Our king size bed was two twin beds with separate duvets pushed together, but that seems to be the case throughout Israel. My only complaint on the room would be that the sheets were rather thin for such a nice hotel. The location is pretty good - depending on what you want to do in Tel Aviv. Its on the famous boardwalk and a short walk to the beach. The complex the hotel is in is sort of a weird rundown, half abandoned building. If I was to do it again, I would stay further south along the beach, as it would be closer to some of the more fun neighborhoods and Old Yaffa.

The accessible room did not have an accessible bathroom - I could not use the shower and the angles to get in in a wheechair were difficult to say the least. However, the hotel did everything they could for me - took the bathroom door off, rented a proper bath bench for me which had an armrest and a backrest and generally did themselves proud thanks to Customer Relations man, Ron.
The hotel itself is modern, intimate , and clean but not 5 star. The bedrooms are going to be upgraded next year, and so they should. The twin beds were comfortable, the room was spacious enough to turn round in with the chair, plenty of drawers and hanging, and overlooked the sea from the side. The bathroom itself was upgraded recently.
Breakfast was a typical generous Israeli buffet and snacks downstairs on the ground floor were large and not expensive. The staff, including the bellboys could not have been more helpful.
Good hotel in best place
We stayed at this hotel one night in February 2005. It´s little bit raw looking if you look at that close, but good rooms, nice breakfast and first of all this hotel is an excellent place in the shoreline and 1-2 of the city centre. This hotel is beside the Hillton hotel.
Much better than first impressions
Arriving in the early hours of the morning after a late evening flight from London I was not overly impressed by the entrance, nor by my room, which looked slightyl tired. However, the hotel grew on me after a good sleep. Excellent views from front rooms, good breakfast and other meals, friendly staff, pleasant rooftop pool and terrace, and a Business Lounge that is amongst the nicest and best I have experienced. This is an older hotel facing more modern competitors. It is cheaper than most rivals and worth considering.
Stayed on business for three nights (not my first stay). The Carlton is fairly anonymous but quite a nice position with the marina behind and easy access to the beach. The views along the beach are good and breakfast is excellent. Staff OK though nothing remarkable. I have never had any problems here but nor is it very memorable.
Carlton Tel Aviv is in an excellent location, staff courteous and helpful, rooms comfortable, breakfast is wonderful. The hot water pots in the rooms are a bonus. Water views or water/city views are breathtaking. HIgly recommend this hotel.
Room for improvement
Stayed two nights at the Carlton in August. Check-In is friendly and efficient. Bellboy is a problem. Had our luggage stored as we arrived early in the morning. Did not find it in the afternoon although it was the only one left in the storage room. I helped them :-)
Security at the entrance is lax, much better at the Hilton or Sheraton.
The room we had was a bit worn, not too bad but kind of looking forward to the next renovation. Beds were fine though. A/C also shows its age, not easy to control and a bit moldy.
The location is not bad, couple of beaches around, quick access to the roads that lead to the airport and Jerusalem. Nice little pool on the rooftop. Wireless Internet in parts of the building.
Would recommend for a quick business stay if you get a good rate. For longer stays or with your wife consider the Hilton, the Sheraton or the Dan.
Fine upscale Hotel
The hotel is very modern and the rooms are in topnotch condition. The breaksfast buffet was sumptuous, a highlight of our stay. The staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel is right on the beach. It is expensive, however. We got a better rate by booking an air/hotel package through El Al vacations.

A walk around the kibbutz showed how little has changed. There has been virtually no new buildings put up in the 14 years I've been gone. Many houses have been expanded in various ways to accommodated more kids and higher salaries. The vegetation has obviously grown through our friends that work in the 'noi' (the kibbutz's landscaping crew) have made sure the growth was only where it should be, and so restricted to thickening of ...
