    At the coast

    by

    The Dan Panorama Tel Aviv Hotel has 483 rooms including of several types and a number of suites.
    With 18 floors available the chance to have a room with a view is very likely.

    The hotel has its own restaurant and two bars.

    Directions: At the coastal road.

    Easy Access to the Mediterranean Sea

    by

    Room 1325 - stunning view of the Mediterranean Sea from my balcony, just across the road. Rooms are large by European standards, and contain modern furnishings (glass tables, black & wood decor). Nice, large towels - not the usual for European hotels.

    The staff were very friendly. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

    Unique Quality: I mentioned the great view from my 13th floor window, but the hotel is also conveniently located to most of downtown Tel Aviv, including the beautiful Neve Tzedek neighborhood, and a 15 minute walk to Old Jaffa.

    One of the ugliest looking hotels (1960s/70s high rise) at the Neve Tzedek end of the sea front, the Dan Panorama whilst hardly 'boutique' in style (20+ floors and 500 rooms) is, surprisingly, not that bad. Its popular with groups and also hosts any number of private functions (weddings, conferences etc) so the public areas are big and impersonal, but the rooms are of a very good size, with virtually all of them with balcony and sea views. Staff are friendly and helpful.

    It is also a hotel, if you are considering staying, worth checking out for deals - its big enough to offer any number of them!

    Unique Quality: Facilities include open air swimming pool (closed Nov-March). Excellent (kosher) buffet breakfast offered (although coffee is dreadful!).

    Most frustrating aspect of the hotel is the lifts!! Even with 5 on offer, you can end up waiting a very long time and/or ending up going up and down to various floors that bear no resemblance to floors requested!

More about Dan Panorama Tel Aviv Hotel

Great Location and Cozzy

by Sharon about Prima Astor Hotel


The Astor Hotel is a lovely one... not a backpackers hotel and not as posh as the Hilton.
Located Between the Sheraton Hotel and the Dan hotel (Not the dan Panorama) in one of the best areas of the promanade watching the beach ...Small enough to be intimate and cozzy..
The staff is friendly and nice, Servic is great So what else do we need... Oh the rooms.... well i haven't stayed at the regular rooms so i dont know how they are, i know the suit which was nice comfi and had a Jacuzzy and lovely view.
The price for a night is 650shekels which is aprx 120euro for a night and the regular rooms cost aprx 350shekels. In Central Tel Aviv, few Steps from the beach.

Fraying at the edges but good view from Mt Carmel

by cochinjew about Hotel Dan Panorama

I had this room booked through contacts at ZIM, so I might have gotten a corpoate rate or 140 usd per night.
this hotel definitely has seen better days. reminded very much of the older hotels in la habana like hotel inglaterra or Plaza. the acoutrements showed their age, like the bath tub and the wash basin
the air conditioner was adequate at best.
our room was on 17th floor with a good view of the city below us.
vey nice buffet breakfast very nicely situated halfway up the mount carmel.
friendly staff who are multlingual including English
tasty healthy breakfast included in the price
internet wire less available for only 15 usd per day, a bargain compared to the cybercafes on the street or your wi fi provider ( such as boingo which would have charged you 6 usd per hour)
easy to get taxi in front of the hotel
attached to a small shopping mall so that you can zip down and replenish whatever you need: mineral water or post cards or nice israeli arts and crafts

Time warp

by TripAdvisor Member pkcasa

Staying at the Dan Panorama Tel Aviv was like being in a time warp. Everything looked it had not been renovated since the 1970s. Our room, which was spacious enough and had a great view of the ocean and pool, was so outdated we felt like we were in the Brady Bunch house. To me at least the entire hotel also smelled a bit stale and old. The location, while on the water, was a little too far south on the promenade for my preference. The staff was at times almost pleasant, other times downright difficult to deal with. The breakfast buffet, I will admit, had a downright staggering array of choices. Of all the hotels we stayed at in Israel, this one had a buffet most suited to specifically Israeli tastes. The pool area was pleasant enough, although not very relaxing.

Convenient location

by TripAdvisor Member DoctorR

As part of my 2 week trip in Israel we spent Shabbat (weekend) at the Dan Panorama in Tel Aviv. For the price it was fine.Everything worked in the hotel room. It was clean and the views of the Mediterranean were excellent. We were there in the winter so being directly on the beach was less important to us. Breakfasts were ample and excellent. When I arrived by rental car the people who greeted us allowed us to park our car on the side without charge. It may have helped that I spoke Hebrew but it was a small touch that removed the stress of check-in .

excellent breakfast

by TripAdvisor Member VC1850

The breakfast at the Dan Panorama was one of culinary highlights of my 10 day trip to Israel. I especially loved the home-made yogurt. On Shabbat, the normally incredible spread is more limited (no home-made yogurt), so I advise trying to stay at least one day other than Friday night/Saturday morning.

We did smell a bit of cigarrette smoke coming from the hallway, even though we were on a non-smoking room. But other than that, our rooms were very pleasant. The location is very good. It's a 15-20 minute walk to the heart of the city. But I'd recommend wandering around the up and coming neighborhood of Nebe Tzedek, which right near the hotel.

Very comfortable & effiicient service

by TripAdvisor Member shimmiec

My daughter and I stayed at the Dan Panorama for several nights in December, 2007. The room was extremely comfortable and clean. The balcony is small but we had a beautiful view of the Mediterranean. The hotel's staff (front desk, restaurants, & housekeeping) were very friendly and efficient.
The Israeli breakfast was extraordinary and had the most diverse selection of delcious food I have ever seen at a hotel breakfast. The food and service in the Lobby Lounge were very good and reasonably priced. Another advantage for us was the indoor parking connected to the hotel which was only 32 shekels (about $8 a day) regardless of how many times you go in and out. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Tel Aviv. It is conveniently located to the chique shopping areas in Neve Tzedek and Jaffa and close to central Tel Aviv as well.

Shabby and unfriendly

by TripAdvisor Member Reuters

We unfortunately spent 4 days in August at this hotel.

The Dan Panorama claims to have a 5 star rating and while this may have been a quality establishment when it opened 30 years ago, it certainly rates today no higher then a 2 or 3 star hotel by global standards.

The hotel is incredibly tired and downright shabby in places. The staff (who all speak English but pretend not to understand anything) are surly and unhelpful - room cleaning service involves nothing more then changing the towels and (half) making up the beds. My wife’s view is that they should tear the place down but I thing that closing it down for a year or so for a complete refurb may just about save it....

I would also add that in my view the location is too far south on the strip of hotels (although obviously it is well located for Jaffo) and is not "on the beach' as some other hotels further north on the promenade are.... ( - it is however immediately adjacent to the Inter-Continental)

That said, you get what you pay for and the Dan Pan was one of the few hotels who were prepared to book for less then 1 week minimum stay in August…

The breakfast is quite good (except Saturdays) although certainly not as good as some reviewers would like to make out.

The only other plus I can think of is that the hotel has plenty of onsite parking for what I thought was a quite reasonable rate of NIS 30 per day...

We will not be returning to this hotel as even if you accept the poor service and tired rooms, the location is in my opinion just not good enough....

While Israel (and Tel Aviv) are wonderful places to visit, they will need to significantly up their game on the quality of their hotels, service levels and value for money as for holiday makers, Dubai, Egypt, Cyrus, Turkey and Greece (plus all the North African holiday destinations) offer much better quality and value for money.

Yes, Jewish people with friends and family will continue to visit Israel, but they will need to do much more to make it the phenomenal holiday destination it could be.

Not recommended

by TripAdvisor Member Eric02

1. Room description at time of booking is deceptive. Not all room have sea view and not all rooms are renovated. No minibar in non-renovated rooms. Many rooms have a view on the garage roof. Guest service claims that it is travelocity's fault, not theirs.
2. Hotel is overbooked in August and you sometimes have to wait between 5 and 10 minutes to get into the elevator
3. Business center is dirty and a mess and is cleaned approximately once a week.
4. Breakfast on Saturday is not good (for example bread is not fresh). Breakfast on other days is good but coffee is difficult to get unless you wait long and claim it several times.
5. Beach and center of town are far from hotel. Not a great location.
6. Receptionists are not always helpful and you need to contact the guest service department to get partial satisfaction.
7. French families with several kids invade the hotel in August. They are extremely rude, noisy and demanding. Since they shout a lot and make scandals, they tend to get the best rooms to the detriment of others.
8. Only one telephone booth in the hotel. Phones in rooms cost a fortune even for local calls.
9. Prices are high. Not good value for money.
10. The Dan hotel (not to be confused with Dan Panorama) is much better but is more expensive.
11. Advice: the hotel management should not overbook the hotel in August and start renovating a number of rooms which are in bad condition (carpet, bathroom airconditioning etc.)

Tel Aviv on the Sabbath

by Littlered415

We're going to be in Tel Aviv on a Friday until Saturday. Will everything in the city be closed? Does public transportation close down? Will I be able to find restaurants and shops that are open. We will be staying at the Dan Panorama Hotel. I would like to be able to pick up some gifts while I'm there. I don't want to spend the time in my hotel.

Thanks

Re: Tel Aviv on the Sabbath

by NYTim

Many places are open especially restaurants. I have never had trouble finding a place for a beer and some food.

Re: Tel Aviv on the Sabbath

by Gili_S

What to do, eat, drinks and pubs are no problems. Buses do not work and shopping might be difficult. I think some malls can be open but locals should confirm that. Try to go to Jaffa, just few km from your hotel, taxi will not be too costly and in the market there you can do some nice souvenirs shopping.

Re: Tel Aviv on the Sabbath

by Bregman

Most of the restaurants and cafes will be open. The public transportation doesn't run, but as the city is quite small a taxi could take you everywhere.
The shops are closed on Saturday. There are some malls which are open but they are outside of the city center and they are of little interest for a tourist. IT's mainly places like "ACE" or "Home Center". If you want to buy souvenirs on a Saturday you can do it in the souvenirs shops of the Dan and the nearby hotels.

Dan panorama is at the south of Tel-Aviv, only a 5 minuters walk from Jaffa and 2 minutes walk from Neve Zedek. In both of these places you can find a lot of souvenirs shops, but again not on a Saturday. If you'll be in Tel-Aviv on Friday morning, try going to Nacahlat-Binyamin street market. There you can find a lot of stuff. It shuold be open until 3:00-4:00 pm. Also, you can try the flea market in Jaffa for older stuff and the shops of Neze Zedek and Old Jaffa for more "touristic" high end stuff. Be warned that Old Jaffa is a "tourist trap". The shops there are much more exapnsive. Unless you are looking for a specific artist or high end jewelleries you can find much cheaper stuff on Nachalat Binyamin steet market.
