We had a lovely time at the Mendeli.
It is a recently refurbished boutique hotel (of 5 floors).
We stayed in a Loft room, on the 5th floor & it was very well set out for the size of the room (21m2). The bed was king size & very comfortable.
It had a great walk-in shower with plenty of water pressure.
The vanity was in the room & the mirror was a real feature.
There was free wifi in the room, which was great, especially travelling on a foreign mobile phone.
The breakfast was amazing! There was a huge selection of cold food – as well as your choice of eggs, made for you by the chef.
You couldn’t ask for a better breakfast. It lasted us the whole day until dinner.
They even have a barista who makes you coffee with your breakfast.
The hotel is only one street back from the beach.
The staff were friendly & because we travelled around a little, we checked in & out 3 separate times on our trip. They treated us like old friends when we returned & allowed us late check-out on the last day, which enabled us to a have a shower before our first 12 hour flight home.
The drawback would be that the lifts are small & that there are only two of them, at either end of the hotel.
We will definitely be returning to the Mendeli & would recommend it to anyone/everyone!
Check in was wonderful with Anat. She was quick, clear, and helpful. In fact, all front staff were well composed and nice. Rooms were nice, but carpets need to be replaced. Pool area needs updating. Breakfast was fine, but not at the same level I experienced at Leonardo plaza in tiberias. Only major negative was the security at front who was constantly playing video games on his phone. It seemed like this job was bothering him.
The hotel is on the main north-south street along the Tel Aviv seaside, near the marina. Not a luxury neighborhood, but it felt quite safe to walk around at night. Comfortable room. There is a small bar area on the ground level next to sliding doors leading out to the pool (which we didn't use due to the weather). We had booked the room without included breakfast. On check-in we were given the option to have breakfast for an additional $15/person, but with no charge if we chose to go elsewhere. We tried the buffet breakfast the first morning and were totally overwhelmed with the variety and quality of the food. Even a "chef" to prepare omelets to order. We went back each morning we stayed there and it was well worth the cost. But it was nice to have the option to go elsewhere if we had wanted to.
"Great hotel on the beach. Large rooms with balcony"
Hotel is directly on the beach. Take elevator to ground level and walk out. Large and modern rooms with outside balcony with lounge chairs. Great breakfast. Taxis always available out the front door. Directly above Mike's American Bar
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the AL hotel. The staff were very welcoming and helpful throughout my stay. The room was comfortable and had all the amenities I needed. The hotel is in a good location too, within easy walking distance of lots of restaurants, bars and shops.
Really cannot say enough good things about this hotel, but what really made the difference was the staff, excellent and wonderful; Tova, Margarita, Ken, Gal and another lady that at this time cannot remember her name were always smiling, pleasing and wonderful. In the lobby/vestibule they have a great coffee machine were you can get regular coffee, expressos, cappuccinos, etc., etc. and great pastries and cookies; but best of all, in the afternoons and evenings, the always present cold bottle of champagne or lambrusco. Great hotel to stay a day or a month; during our recent trip to Israel we stayed first 3 days and after our travels in Israel another 5 days.
