hotel at/near Tel Aviv airport
Hey all-
Is there a hotel at or near Ben Gurion airport in Tel Aviv? I'll be arriving at midnight on Sunday night and I need to meet my dad in the morning at the airport. It seems crazy to go into the city at that hour...I've never been there before...

The ONLY airport hotel I know of may not even exist anymore. It's called AVIA.

Sorry, I should have done my research BEFORE posting an answer...

Yes, it DOES exist:

AVIA is a dreadful hotel. Don't use it. As stated before, Going to Tel Aviv a midnight is about 20 min by taxi (about 25 dollars).

Due to security the checkpoint is 6 km from the airport... So few more kilometers, and you're in a hotel!

Can your dad meet you at your hotel? The new airport is large and may get confusing.

I would advise you to go to a hotel and get a few hours of sleep. He only needs the name of your hotel to meet you there after taking a taxi. Or, if you want to start your visit in Jerusalem, a shuttle is $10 to the hotel's door.

i have to meet him at the airport in the morning and we are taking off for a really busy trip so i thought getting a few hours sleep would be the best thing. whats so bad about the Avia? do they have a free shuttle from the airport?

Believe me. It is an awful hotel at a disgusting location. It is not in the airport. So if you have to get into a taxi why not use a decent hotel in Tel Aviv?

ok can you recommend a few cheap and nice places in tel aviv?

eri Apr 16th, 2006 10:14 PM

What do you consider "cheap"?

My friend always stays at Maxim. I know the location is good, on the sea shore, on the promenade. And as she stayed there more then once, I guess I can recommend it.

The Maxim sounds pretty reasonable indeed:

All times are GMT -8. The time now is 08:24 PM.
