Why Isrotel Tower? “September is the best time of the year to visit Israel” - locals say and I agree. The weather is great, it’s not too hot, not humid and it’s perfect for swimming in the sea, the water is warm and jelly fish free. And all I wanted to do this time is to swim in the sea (last time we visited Israel in May and we could not enjoy swimming in the sea that much because a lot of jellyfish was in the water, though I was brave and swam, after I’ve got a sting from one of them I was not so brave any more ), so I was looking for an accommodation close to the beach and not too far from the shops. After few hours of searching I found some apartments at very reasonable prices (between $100 – 130 per night), but our choice was a studio in Isrotel Tower (the tallest tower on Tel Aviv’s Promenade), with stunning views, free swimming pool and gym access and free wi fi. After slight negotiation we booked it for $157 per night for 12 nights (the electricity cost us at the end 100 or 150NIS), I think we had a really good deal.
As I understand Isrotel Tower consists of the hotel and individuals’ apartments. So we rented a studio which was on the 17th floor and belong to the individual.
The studio was great, modern, nice and clean just like on the photos provided by the owner, good size, perfect for 2 people. We found there everything we needed. And yes, the views from the balcony were amazing!!!
The sunny mornings, it was so nice to have breakfasts on the balcony, and breezy nights, it was so pleasant that we did not even have to use the air conditioning in the apartment.
In my opinion Isrotel Tower located in perfect spot, especially for those who like beach and walking ( it’s in walking distance from everything I wanted). The address is 78 Hayarkon street and it is only 5 min away from the beach and even closer to Shlomo Promenade, 15 min from the HaCarmel market and Dizengoff shopping center; you can also walk from here to Rothschild Boulevard (25 min or 10 min by taxi) and Old Jaffa (35 min walk or 10 min by taxi), or you can also rent a bicycle on the promenade
The Isrotel Tower entrance is a bit hidden between the buildings, there are 3 ways to get into it – from Hayarkon street, Shalom Aleichem street and Ben Yehuda street. The building itself is about 15 years old and in some places inside it needs to be updated. The halls looks nice and clean, but the elevators are really cosmetically tired.
The 27th floor, from here you can take the stairs or another elevator to the top of the tower where the swimming pool is.
The Isrotel Tower swimming pool is on the rooftop and the highest in Tel Aviv (only two more hotels in Tel Aviv have a rooftop swimming pools). The swimming pool is OK and has a lifeguard on duty, in my opinion it’s very small and it’s only open from 10am – 6pm, but the views are really incredible from here.
After all, I really enjoyed our stay in Isrotel Tower - perfect location, amazing views and very nice modern studio, even though we did not stay in the hotel’s room the staff there was also friendly to us and very helpful.
