With an incredibly convenient location, this hotel, set in a high-rise built in 1986, is less expensive and usually busier than its sister hotel, the Dan Carmel, down the street. It's just steps away from the Carmelit station on the main shopping/restaurant street of the Carmel District, and actually part of the upmarket Panorama shopping mall complex. Rooms are 1980s-modern design, a bit worn but efficient (even lower-category rooms have hair dryers), and classified in price according to their views (windows in many rooms are not really big enough to make the most of their vistas). The pool has been fitted onto the roof of one of the building's lower wings, and catches breezes on hot days. Lots of pleasant Dan Hotel chain touches here, such as the especially good spread at the breakfast buffet. Look for bargain Internet and Dan Hotel 7-Day Package deals.
