The David Intercontinental Hotel Tel Aviv has been chosen as the best hotel in Israel for the seventh time, at the 2018 World Travel Awards held in Athens.

David Cohen, CEO of the David Intercontinental Hotel in Tel Aviv, who attended the event and received the award, said, “We are very proud to have won the award as the best hotel in Israel. For us, this is an important recognition that the hotel staff continues to provide our guests with meticulous and quality service, with the international standards we are committed to. The dedicated staff of the hotel is the reason for our win. On this occasion, I would like to thank the hotel’s loyal guests who continue to choose us as the hotel for their visits.”
