Carlton Tel Aviv
Travel Blogs from Tel Aviv
The day to fly to Tel Aviv arrived. Altough it was a business trip, it was an oportunity to see Israel. When I called the airport in order to check for the flight details, I'd noticed that I had to be there 4 hours in advance due to the security check!.
Arrived at the Amsterdam airport, went to the check in desk of El Al. Only …
After blissfully sleeping until after 9, we dined on a delicious late breakfast. Then we split up so each couple could walk the beach promenade at their own pace. Patti and Alan headed north toward the old Tel Aviv port. It has become a mecca for small boutiques, cafes, and chain stores. It is open on Shabbat so it is full of activity today. They …
The final day has arrived but we had all day to explore and enjoy. We headed to Nachalat Benyomin, the artist market that is open only on Tuesdays and Fridays. We had been here before but wanted to wander so more.
We explored the Carmel Shuk and enjoyed a late lunch at Gordo's on the beach. It is finally cooler and time for the warmer …
We had to leave the hotel early today since there were 8 tour buses at the hotel and our tour guides wanted us to get an early start to beat the traffic. We drove through the Druze village and then we on to a grotto (Rosh Hanikra) that is on the border of Lebanon. Besides the land border there were buoys out into the Mediterranean that define the …
This is phenomenally late, and perhaps the blog entry I have most wanted to write for about a week. In true, brilliant form I have left the notes I wrote for this entry in the hotel, so I reserve the right to add to this later.
It covers a very difficult 48 hours.
For those who have forgotten, I last finished following a painful …

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 :)
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.
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.
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.
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 :-)
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.
