I did my hotel research for the hotel choices when we booked our flights to Tel aviv.
My shopping list for selection was location/ pool and price for a 7 night stay in the city.
I was shocked by the price of the more up market beach hotesl so instead went for Leonardo at around £100 per night for a double room for my stay.
Arrived onna monday PM .
The hotel is loacated on the 2nd
road which runs parrell to the beach and on 1st impressions pulling up in the taxi it didnt look the best.
check in great really good staff who gave us tourist infomation of ciy and map we decided to purchase breakfast as well which was £15 each per day....welcome to Isreal!!!! Foyer area was quite modren and tidy but the life and commualand coriddor areas are looking a bit tired and outdated.
Then onto our room.....inital impressions was it was not good...very small, old fashioned fixutres and fittings however nice comfy bed with everything very clean and the room had a sea view ...Air con although good sounded like a jumbo jet taking off and TV had 2 english chanels with the remaining 29 other chanells in Russian and Chinese .
Although expensive the breakfast was excellent.
Pool area was poor and suffered from major shade from surrounding buildings.
Location of hotel is excellent with a short walk over the road to the beach......top tip...try gordans pool a communal pool about 5 minutes walk over the road
hotel staff all very good and attentive and helpful towards all guests needs.
In summary this hotel is expensive and the rooms and some of the areas need a refreash however given the location and in comparison to the other surrounding hotel which are nearly 50% more in terms of price you have to award it 4 stars.
