Historical Traveller Reviews of Dan Panorama Hotel

Just OK

from FXRS1969
Me and my wife stayed at the Dan Panorama in September 2006 for 2 nights. We were upgraded upon arrival because a family member was a Israeli travel agent. The room was just OK on the 7th floor. It was overlooking the front of the hotel. The interior of the room was a bit dated, but the bed was comfortable. The bathroom was nice.

The lobby of the hotel is very nice and large. The breakfast which is included in the price is very large and lots of different types of food to eat.

The other room booked for other family members had problems with the electronic lock on the door. It was broken and it took a day for the hotel to fix. It was not pleasant to arrive at your room and you are not able to access it. The hotel sent up chocolates (a small box) to make up for the errors.

This hotel is within walking distance to the Old City which is nice. There are also very nice restaurants nearby.

Based on the price we paid for the two nights, I would return. The hotel is about 4 stars out of 5.

3+ Star Hotel

from MichaelChristine
My wife and I spent a few days in Jerusalem, during our 10 day trip to Israel.

The hotel is pleasant enough, but a little dated. However, this is very normal with the majority of hotels in Israel.

For North Americans, consider this hotel a 3+ Star.

Clean and simple. Good value for money.

The location is excellent, very convenient to the Old City, and many other areas of Jerusalem.

Again, although nothing special, if you can get the place for US$150 to US$175 per night, then I would recommend. Anything more, stay at the King David down the street. Very elegant.

Fabulous Location-walking distance to everything

from rubencanuck
I would probably rate this hotel as a 4 and 1/2 leaving the 5 stars to only the very best. This Hotel - for the money is hard to beat. Its walking distance to the Old City (Kotel) and Ben Yehuda Avenue (Funky Shopping area with great restarants) also close to the German Quarter which is also really nice.
The Food is exceptionally good (we were there for 11 nights so...I should Know)-particularly the BREAKFAST which is included in the room prize-in most cases. The staff is curtious and efficient-very helpfull and accomodating. The hotel offeres a free evening tour of Jerusalem on Tuesday nights and its very well run and again its included in your price. You can become a member of the DAN club and get further discounts on your food and stay. the rooms are not huge, but perfectly adecuate. We had 3 in our room and the extra bed fit without a problem. I would'nt call it the most confortable bed in the world but... again, for the money? you can't beat it. The pool area is a bit noisy and not large, but considfering the hotel location, its perfectly fine.
I would highly recommend this hotel. Unless of course yuo want to spend 500.00 dollars a night to stay at the King David.....NOT

Good location

from Admaston
My husband and I spent four nights at the Dan Panorama. The location is great and we could easily walk to the Old City and Ben Yehuda Street. The hotel is nothing amazing, but the rooms are clean and comfortable. The rooms are generic looking, but spacious. The Israeli breakfast is quite good. There is also a rooftop pool which is nice for cooling off after a day of sightseeing. Unfortunately, it closes rather early - 6pm. There is no concierge, but the reception desk can book tours, rent cars, etc. The hotel also has free parking.

Great location, food is good, rooms are small

from Shaul
We spent 4 nights in Jerusalem - Aug 21st to Aug 25. Dan had some publications about great deals so we decided to give it a try.
The desk stuff are very friendly and helpful. The elevators are very old, slow and in order to get to the underground parking there is a need to climb a few stairs, which is not very helpful if you need to carry a heavy loads.
The rooms are tiny compare to hotels in Eilat. We had 2 rooms connected (3 kids...) which made it tolerable.
We had a deal with breakfast, which was VERY nice (although the stuff there have little idea on omelet making).
There is a pool on the roof which is very small (should be VERY SMALL) but the view is breath taking.
Location: this is the good part - the hotel is located 15 - 20 minutes easy walk to Jaffa Gate of the Old City and there are lots of buses and taxis around.
Overall - I would recommend it to my friends.

Friendly, foody and fab!

from Fleur_Star
My first experience of a Dan hotel is a great one: the staff were friendly and helpful from the word go, from the duty manager to the housekeepers; the breakfast buffet stretched on for miles and was high on quality as well as quantity (oooh, the hot danish pastries straight from the oven...); the lobby area is comfortable and smart.

Ok, so our room was a little basic (no radio and no music channel on the tv, but why stay inside when there's Jerusalem to explore?), and the pool on the small side (around a dozen kids and it felt full) but the location was perfect. 20 mins slow walk to the Western Wall, 20 mins in another direction to Ben Yehuda pedestrian area, and around 20 mins to Emek Refaim, the German Colony's nice shopping street. There are bus stops right outside the hotel for when it gets too hot to walk! The hotel is near Liberty Bell Park, and the posh new King David housing developments.

The hotel is Shabbat-friendly, providing candles, meals (at a charge) and a minyan for havdala. The electric key cards are replaced with a conventional key by request. Five minutes up the road is the Great Synagogue, an American Ashkenazi shul that is used to receiving guests.

I'd definitely go back to this hotel, and have recommended it to my family. I'd originally intended to stay at a cheaper hotel but am so glad I didn't. I'll be remembering those breakfasts for a long time yet!

What a great hotel!

from JupiterRocks
This is a really good hotel. The location is excellent - you can walk to loads of places fairly quickly and there are taxis and bus stops right outside too. The staff were really friendly and helpful, and the food was fantastic - gotta love those Israeli breakfasts!

The room was fairly standard - enough room for two, and a nice ensuite bathroom. The only thing was, no kettle in the basic rooms - would have been nice - and our window didn't open. That said, air-con was good. It was also nice to have lots of hangers waiting in the wardrobe.

The lobby of the hotel is really well designed and a great place to sit and chat. We felt that the photos of the hotel really didn't do it justice - it's far far nicer that anything we saw of it on the internet.
Just go - it's a really good base for Jerusalem. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

So So...good location, needs a little TLC

from kaboodle
We stayed here during the last week in May of 2006 and like many hotels, has both good and bad points. I did like that you could walk thru the park to the Jaffa gate, or walk to the downtown area so easily. The bus is also quite convenient as well and we used that to get to Yad Vesham. The staff was very polite and helpful, but the front desk could get pretty busy during peak times, so plan accordingly. I thought the breakfast was pretty good. Plenty of fresh vegetables and yogurt, cereal and bread, and cheese. But I did notice the orange juice from the little machine wasn't so great. The breakfast room is large so you could always find a nice table. The plates were smallish so you might need to fill it more than once, but I used it as a diet enforcer since I enjoyed so much of the Israeli food through out the day! We also used the pool to cool off at the end of a day in Jerusalem, and you can't do that at very many Jerusalem hotels. That was wonderful...but get there early as they close the whole pool down at 6:00pm! (I noticed that in Tiberias too) So my only disappointment is the room itself. We were on the 4th floor and it looked like some of the rooms might have been renovated (the doors were nicer and newer looking) but not all of them. Certainly not ours. I think we were in 407 but really can't remember for sure. The room was very worn and tired, old dark furniture, ugly carpet and decor...really a dump. But we only reserved a few weeks in advance, paid a very decent price for short notice in Jerusalem ($150/night), and all in all, I would stay again. Just don't expect a really fancy room.

Wonderful Experience

from A TripAdvisor Member
I have visited Israel a number of times and have always stayed at the Dan Panorama Jerusalem, when visiting Jerusalem. However, this visit I took my elderly parents with me. The Dan Panorama staff, from the cleaning staff right up to the Managers of the hotel were wonderful, they were courteous and very caring. Being that my parents are elderly, everyone went out of their way in treating them with consideration and courtesy. The old city and new city are both within walking distance, the hotel food was fabulous and the rooms were beautiful and very comfortable. We enjoyed ourselves tremendously and will definitely, go back.

A little dissappointed

from RobertDN
This hotel does not meet the high standards of it's sister hotels in Tel Aviv and Eilat. You are greeted by a small reception being bombarded by visitors. However, the staff are superb and helpful. Bedrooms are small and tired looking. They need a face lift as they are dull and dark, including the furniture. We were so dissappointed with breakfast, not upto israeli breakfast standards. A prime example was the awful watered down so called fresh orange juice from a machine. The manager said they couldn't provide fresh juice. The swimming pool is good. Alll staff very helpful and the extra towel aftrenoon top up was much appreciated. On the whole the hotel is no more than ok. It looks superb from the outside, but the inside is not. I have to say that two days was enough. A word of warning, Jerusalem is one big building site, and we were awoken at 07.00 am by the sound of mechanical diggers etc next to the hotel.

Top Local Tips for Jerusalem

Avoid taxis if possible We did not take taxis, but several people in our group did and all had negative experiences. One taxi driver insisted on taking a couple to Bethlehem and they had to practically jump out to stop him. Another took someone for a $20 trip that was supposed to be $6.

Western Wall Go to the Western Wall in the morning on one of the days of the week when bar mtizvahs are held. The site will be more lively and interesting.

The taxi drivers need watching. Get any quote in writing for an extended trip. I asked for a quote, was told a price in the Israeli currency (1/4th the vlaue of US dollars) and at the end of the trip was told that the quote was in USD.
