I admit that I’ll always have a soft spot in my heart for the Grand Beach Hotel in Tel Aviv!
My aunt and uncle lived in the hotel for a couple of years. I used to visit them often on summer vacations in Israel and loved to go sunbathing and swimming in the rooftop pool area.
There's always a great view. And since the recent renovation, everything is new, comfortable and clean.
Perhaps it is less glitzy than the other hotels near the beach, but the Grand Beach is a good choice for a mid-range, 4 star hotel in Tel Aviv.
The Grand Beach is centrally located right across the street from the beach at Nordau Street, one of the main avenues in the center-north of the city.
In fact, you can walk along the beach boardwalk all the way down to beautiful old Jaffa. It should take about an hour. Or rent some bikes at one of the city's bike share stations and bike your way down.
The basic ‘superior’ rooms are clean, comfortable and compact. Every room has some nice perks - free WIFI, an LCD TV and a mini-fridge.
You can upgrade to premium and business rooms and enjoy the small business lounge.
As I recommend for all Tel Aviv beachside hotels, ask for a higher floor room with a sea view.
As in most Israeli hotels, breakfast is included and is plentiful!
You’ll find fresh fruits and vegetables, eggs made to order and a variety of breads, cakes, and cereals. You can even prepare your own freshly squeezed orange juice with a fun, old-fashioned juicer.
Since the hotel renovation recently, the service has improved and is usually friendly and attentive. Since this is a large tourist hotel, expect the inevitable noise of tourists, families and tour buses during the summer and holiday seasons.
