    Super staff

    by

    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

    by

    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.

    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

    by

    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!

    This hotel is recommended. The rooms are tastefully decorated, have modern bathrooms, and are very clean. There is a nice lobby and helpful desk service.

    Unique Quality: This hotel is in a great neighborhood, within walking distance of the Old City and the German Colony.

Dan Panorama is Just OK

by TripAdvisor Member jzimmerm

The Dan is just fine, but nothing more. The location (near the Kind David) can't be beat -- close to both the Old City and downtown restaurants -- and when in Jerusalem, you don't spend too much time in your room, anyway. The room was adequate -- a little on the smallish side, the furniture was a little tired. Bathroom was fine. I'd expect a coffee maker in a hotel of this caliber, but there wasn't one. One elevator was frequently broken, and our room keys repeatedly needed to be re-coded. The desk staff seemed to be a little overwhelmed at times. The breakfast was very good, but not as good as others I've had in Israel. The health club was fine, the equipment worked. Overall, I'd say the hotel is adequate, and the location makes up for a lot.

A wonderful place to celebrate succoth

by TripAdvisor Member 1suntravel

For the first time in a long time my family and I spent the Succoth holiday in Israel at the Dan Panorama Jerusalem and it was a most memorable experience. The hotel is located not 10 minutes walking distance from the Wall and the hotel even provided transportation during the holiday. There were 5 beautifully decorated Succahs and the food was delicious with many varieties. They also had a synagogue in the hotel for holliday services. The staff was attentive and very professional and we would definately make it a yearly trip. We can't wait to come back and may even consider returning for Pesach. Thank you everyone at the Dan for making our stay with you feel like we were at home.

Lovely hotel!!

by TripAdvisor Member ggreen

We stayed at the Dan Panorama Jerusalem for five nights and it was really great. Our room was an Executive Room on the 10th floor (we had a great view of the Old City) and we had access to the Carmel Lounge on the 9th floor. The lounge was great because we were able to have a glass of wine and some really nice snacks after a day of touring Jerusalem. We also had internet access, which was a nice perk. The breakfasts were outstanding with lots of choices. The room was very clean and quiet. I definitely would recommend staying at this hotel (but in an Executive Room). The location is also fantastic!!

Jerusalem visit and to Tel Aviv Air port

by bgayle

Two of us will be in Jerusalem Hotel Dan Panorama for a few days and will be flying out of Tel Aviv late Monday. I want as much time in Jerusalem, but want to know public transportation to Airport, approx costs and travel time. Many thanks, Bill

Re: Jerusalem visit and to Tel Aviv Air port

by gezergirl

The travel time from Tel Aviv and from Jerusalem is the same, about 30 mins. That's because the airport isn't really in Tel Aviv but half way between the cities.
I don't know about the cost of public transport from Jerusalem, but a taxi from Tel aviv costs around 100 NIS (about $25), so I'm assuming it's about the same from Jerusalem.

Re: Jerusalem visit and to Tel Aviv Air port

Best and cheapest option by far: Order Nesher "sherut" (service taxi) to pick you up at the hotel - I'm sure the reception desk can easily arrange it for you. They take 10 people in a minivan from all over Jerusalem. Costs about NIS 50 per person (~US$13).

BTW, the airport is indeed between Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, but closer to Tel Aviv (about a third of the way to Jerusalem).

Re: Jerusalem visit and to Tel Aviv Air port

by unaS

ramot is correct. Nesher sherut (group taxi) is the way to go.

When you arrive at the airport you can also take them to your hotel.

Arrival: As you leave the Arrivals Hall turn right. The sherut to Haifa is first. Keep walking and you will see the large Yellow vans to Jerusalem. Good signs all along.

Departure: Call them 24 hours before you want to leave for the airport. You tell them the hour of your flight and they will give you a 15 - 20 minute window for the pick-up hour. They pick-up at the door of your hotel.

If you are flying on a Saturday, call them Friday *morning*.

Tel. within Jerusalem: 6257227. If you are calling from outside of Jerusalem, add 02 area code in front of the number.

Have a nice trip!

by bgayle

Thank you, this seems cheaper than most articles note. and I assume this was not Nesher sherut> Bill

Re: Jerusalem visit and to Tel Aviv Air port

by unaS

Nesher is the only sherut - group taxi - from the airport to Jerusalem and return.

Anything else is either a private taxi or limousine service - much more expensive.

The Dan Panorama is my favorite Jerusalem hotel. Speak to the front desk. They will make the phone calls for you. ( and help you with anything else you need) They are very helpful.
