Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ViennaPeter David Intercontinental - November 2013
I was very pleased with David Intercontinental but I have one point which I'm really fed up with:
It's a joke that a hotel in this category is charging an inhouse guest for a web check-in of his flight USD 7,50 plus USD 0,30 for a copy of the boarding pass!!! I have stayed in several hotels across the globe - on business and private trips but never ever made this experience. Even in 3-star-hotels this is included.
Maybe you should rethink this policy.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Snagglepuss Overall Good Experience
Very nice quiet room with excellent views out to sea and city.
Staff very helpful and friendly, especially Daniel (Assistant Conference Manager) who was most helpful when I was trying to send e-mails.
One complaint - for such an expensive hotel I think that WiFi should be free, at least in the lobby

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by olvera2023 Awesome Service and Staff
Had a great time in Tel Aviv InterContinental. I was a business trip and could not have ask for a better service. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is planing a business trip or a vacation.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by HotelConoisseur Dated rooms, inconsistent service - disappointing stay
We had a very disappointing stay at this property and would not recommend it. In my opinion it is not 5* and the rooms/corridors are old and very tired although I understand a refurb of the club rooms is due soon. Prices are high and yet the service is very inconsistent. We had a particular problem concerning the Porters, and whilst staff were concerned they took no real responsibility for this. The hotel is very large and thus does not have a warm and welcoming feel. It is also very noisy with doors banging from the early hours. The Club Lounge was ok but was full of very noisy guests and thus the ambience was not good. Some of the staff were genuinely friendly and caring but this certainly could not be said for all staff. This was our first trip to Israel and indeed Tel Aviv, and to be honest I was very disappointed with my choice.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 00675 In dire need of an overhaul
I've been staying at this property for years and have been witness to its steady decline. The rooms are tired and the fixtures are in bad shape, bordering on shabby. There is very little that is personal at this place. Wake up calls are pre- recorded, the staff barely smile and most don't speak Hebrew, and one has the impression of being a number on a roster rather than a valued guest. The only thing keeping me at this hotel is that our corporate travel policy maintains this hotel on the list, but this will change with the continued improvement of the hotel offerings in Tel Aviv.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Philip65 A Magnificent Hotel
Stayed for the sixteenth and seventeenth times at this magnificent seaside hotel in late October and early November, 2013. Whenever I visit Israel which I do at least once yearly, I stay at the wonderful David Intercontinental Hotel at the beginning and again at the end of my trip so I can both start and end the trip on a high note --by staying at my favorite hotel in the entire world. First a tip for the first time traveler to this hotel. Splurge the extra amount in order to have access to the club lounge where you can enjoy leisurely and sumptuous food for breakfast, lunch, and dinner as well as delicious snacks throughout the day. Having lounge privileges provides you with expedited check-in as you bypass the lobby reception and go directly to the lounge on the 24th floor where there are no crowds to compete with while checking into the hotel. This lounge has Israeli (in English and Hebrew) and international newspapers for you to read and provides free access to computers. Everyone in the lounge is extremely helpful but Martina, Robbie, Hadil, Karni, and Ilan go far beyond the call of duty in being extremely kind, friendly, and helpful in every way they can. I have known Martina over many of the nine years of my staying at this hotel and she is a shining example of the excellent staff at this hotel. All the staff of this great lounge are to be heartily commended. I wish I could remember all their names. Every room in this hotel has a view of the Mediterranean Sea but the suites are particularly luxurious. If you have an Intercontinental Ambassador Gold Card which has a one hundred and fifty dollars per year membership fee then you will get an automatic upgrade to a suite if one is available which makes this card a very important one to have. The beds are extremely comfortable, the bathroom very spacious and chock full of lovely amenities, and the maid service extremely good. The food at the Aubergine Restaurant in the hotel is superb and the daily breakfast in the Jaffa Court restaurant in the hotel is the best in all of Israel by far. The hotel is located within a short and very easy walking distance of the Tayelet (the seaside promenade), the Carmel Market with its Middle Eastern ambience and a wonderful selection of foods, clothes, and souvenirs, the beautiful sandy beach for which Tel Aviv is rightly famous, and the port and artist galleries of Jaffa. Best of all when you are at the hotel the staff makes you manifestly feel that you are part of a family. Don't be surprised if you are approached by staff personally or on your room phone more than once during your stay in order for them to learn if you are satisfied with your hotel experience and whether there is anything they can do to make your stay better. Don't miss visiting the Art Tribes gallery (sculpture, oil paintings, and photographs of the highest quality) and the H. Stern jewelry store, both in the lobby, as both stores have excellent items on display.
