Dan Panorama Jerusalem
My wife and I along with a group of 24 just finished a wonderful stay at this hotel. After reading other reviews I was not expecting the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. Everyone at the hotel went out of their way to make our stay there great. The dining was excellent , the rooms while smallish were clean, and the desk staff very helpful. The location was great, the views from the room were not the best , but we were not in the room a lot so that didn't matter. I would and will stay there in the future.
Directions: Walking distance to the old city
Better Than I Expected
I stayed for 2 1/2 weeks on a buisness trip recently. The hotel staff are a bit surly but I found Jerusalem in general to be a place when customer service is not a prized objective. The hotel room we stayed in was of average size. It was well maintained, I think the hotel has been refurbished recently. It is within walking distance of 5-6 OK but not great restaurants. We had the breakfast buffet but never ate lunch or dinner there. The breakfast was OK with lots of breads, cheeses and salads and eggs. No meat. I am just a yogurt and cereal person so it was fine. The bath is average with a rather weak shower head but a tub just big enough and deep enough to soak in. The main downer was the TV. The English language entertainment choices were limited and dull. Since most guests seem to be on 1 or 2 night tours they probably don't care but I did.
My Jerusalem Home
I have now stayed one week each summer at this hotel over the past 8 years. I find the hotel consistently has good service--with a rare exception here and there. Years ago when tourism was slow the rooms and public areas were somewhat shabby. Today they have mostly been updated and are always exceptionally clean. Early AM( 1-2AM) will find staff lifting all the sofas in the lobby to mop/vacuum the floor. ( depending on tile or carpet)
The breakfast in this hotel is definitely huge. It presents a wide variety of foods and the only thing that suffers is your waistline. The pool, though small is located so it gets the afternoon sun. The lifeguards are helpful and towels left on chairs by guests no longer poolside are quickly removed, preventing a false 'chair in use" appearance.
There is a small healthclub--and here the attendant could have been more helpful!!
The front desk which functions as concierge services is fanstastic. They will make phone calls, check the internet, print out train,bus schedules, answer questions and do just about anything they can to make your visit an enjoyable one.
There is a business center on the lower level. You buy in advance either 30 minute or 1 hour passwords. These do not need to be used in one sitting. No cheap, you are paying for the convience. You can also print here--free of charge!!
Almost forgot--Dannyland for younger children and video games are available for older kids.
Unique Quality: The hotel is as easy walking distance from both downtown, the new Mamilla Center and the Old City. There are many buses who stop right at the front door. The taxi stand always has some cabs with a "Dan Panorama" designation on them. These drivers, speak English and are honest. Other outstanding characteristics are described above.
Around the corner from the King David Hotel, and a 10-minute walk or quick bus ride/ car ride to the Old City. This is the cheaper still 5 star version to King David/ Citadel hotels - still carefully run and centrally located but less fancy and lacking King David's gardens and views.
Standard rooms are comfortable but rather small, and slated for renovation - bit dissapointing to pay $180 for 20 squqre metters. However the executive lounge and swimming pool area are making up for the tiny rooms.
Functional and comfortable
This is one of those places that can divide opinion! Having stayed there several times, I can understand why!
Fantastic location, a few minutes walk from the Liberty Bell Gardens and part of a block of buildings that is covered in newish Jerusalem stone (so where shades when approaching the hotel :)). It's big, it's impersonal, it's comfortably decorated if a little on the ostentatious side. Public rooms are spread out and dark, providing relief from the intense heat outside (assuming you are there during the summer months!). Rooms vary according to payment, but all are fairly big, furnished comfortably if a little bit 'knocked around' by the wear and tear of it being a popular hotel.
Small pool overlooking the back of the hotel, although does provide the occasional glimpse of the Old City. Top floors at the back also provide same view.
Breakfast is one of the highlights of the place, although it is served in a cavern of a room so this is not an intimate moment of the day. This can also be the most confronting of yor stay, especially if it is a busy period. Lots of large families do not result in a quiet start to the day :)
Staff mixed - some are friendly and helpful, some little more than courteous. But that's OK - professionalism is there - just allow for a bad day or the receptionist having just dealt with the rudest customer imagineable. (I have seen this on a couple of occasions and told the receptionists involved that they deserved a medal).
Unique Quality: It's not such a unique place - a comfortable, tourist hotel. I understand it is a 5 star hotel - would question that rating but more than comfortable place to stay alhtough worth avoiding at the height of holiday season - simply because it being such a large hotel, the noise and general 'hub' factor can be a little unpleasant (although this is no fault of the hotel itself). It's also extremely popular for functions, further adding to the general melee of people!
