“So nice!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2012

We stayed for an entire week and had a great experience. The room was clean and modern. It had no view from the private balcony, but that just encouraged us to spend more time at the bar/restaurant, only positive experiences there.
The staff was very friendly and eager to provide recs on local restaurants, clubs and things to do. The included breakfast is made to order and really delicious. We also ate at the restaurant a number of times for lunch or dinner and it was always fresh, tasty and interesting. Plus the place is directly across the street from a major beach access point; the breathtaking view of the Mediterranean is accompanied by great people-watching as beach-goers pass.

Highly recommended!

Recently stayed here at this hotel, the first time for 4 nights and a week later for one more night. Cant tell you how much I loved it...really, really impressed. We didn't have a room that overlooked the Meditteranean, but I think in hindsight, that was good, as those rooms also overlook the road (traffic noise, and unfortunately ?Israelis have picked up the bad habit of continually blowing their car horns when one person is one second slow at taking off at the lights!).
The room was bright, clean and adequately furnished, housekeeping was good, and, altho not needed, we had clean towels & sheets everyday. Breakfast was delightful, what's not to like about sitting out on the deck eating Israeli breakfast and gazing out over the Meditteranean.....pure bliss.

The hotel staff were always pleasant and friendly and willing to help in any way. I will definitely go back to the Gordon, and altho a little expensive, I think for the location (also a 5 minute walk from Dizengoff) it is worth it.

Room Tip: Altho lovely to have a room overlooking the beach, these rooms also overlook Hayarkon St., a main th...

After considering many reviews from different sources on a variety of hotels we decided upon the Gordon Hotel, mainly due to the review it got from *Wallpaper magazine. It was a good choice. We stayed at Gordon for 5 nights in June.

Look if you after big brash chain hotels then the Sheraton and Dan are across the road, so might as well go and book there now. But if like us you prefer designer boutique hotels, then the Gordon is amazing.

On the positive side - Location - perfect, rooms - beautiful, well designed and tasteful. The rooms are maintained adequately. Hotel's vibe is buzzy and lively without being hectic. The hotel is the perfect tel avivian hotel I think directly across from the beach and an easy and enjoyable stroll to the city centre.

On the negative side - In terms of price this hotel is expensive for TLV standards, but then again you are paying for a beach lifestyle when you stay there and how much is watching the sun set from your balcony worth? But for major cities like Sydney where we live it would be considered a reasonable tariff.
Another small gripe was housekeeping – For $USD350 a night I would expect both the bathroom AND the mini bar to be replenished daily. Not when the housekeeper remembered or felt like it.
The major flaw with the hotel was its staff. The staff weren’t rude or bad at their jobs, they were adequate. And that’s a shame, because when you have an amazing location to showcase your amazing hotel and rooms, you want as a guest amazing staff to make your stay an event, rather than a transaction. I just felt that the staff lacked that 5 star international finesse that I would expect from other hotels of its calibre. It was just sloppy no attention to detail. For example, in a hotel with 16 rooms where had just spent the best part of a week, I would expect the staff to know my name everyday. When we checked out the receptionist (who also had checked us in, couldn’t remember our name)

Would I stay again, you bet, gladly. And I will next time we are in TLV, I just hope this time I get the whole experience not just board and lodging.

Room Tip: We booked a sea view room, however were allocated a room on a side street not facing the ocean. Whe...
