The location was great - near Allenby, the beach, good restaurants, Carmel Market (and the neighbor seems to be a lively bar for those of you who enjoy some good local company and drinks). The rooms were small, but had everything you need (personal safe, shower/bath, tv, hair dryer, etc.). If the weather is nice, go upstairs to the rooftop... More

This small hotel is ideally located in a central location with most sights within walking distance. Very clean room and facilities serviced regularly. Staff are friendly and helpful. The beach is 5 mins away so all bases covered.

As it is a very small hotel, we felt really at home. The room was not that big, but beds were comfy and clean. Staff nice and helpful, speaking english very well. We had a room to the backyard, so there was very little noise. Only one night our room neighbours did party till four, this was not funny. Location... More

Staff members were miserable and unhelpful, from the beginning to the end of the stay.. The hotel itself was okay -- nothing fancy but decent. The location was very nice and convenience. But my heavens a miserable staff member (or, in the case, two or three) can really deter one from considering returning to the hotel.

The pictures of the hotel show it in a much much better light than it really is. As tel aviv is expensive this place was average but I did feel slightly ripped off. Location is good and room size is decent. However the Hotel is very dated and needs updating and a little bit of money spending on it. The... More

This is not a glamorous hotel, but our room was clean and comfortable and the artwork in hallways gave it character and charm. The roof terrace was great and the staff were very courteous and helpful. Its central location made it easy to walk to the seafront, Jaffa, the market and the many nearby cafes and restaurants. Our room was... More

This a falsely advertised HOSTEL posing as a hotel. When my husband and I pulled up our first thought was "this is not what we had in mind". It is surrounded by graffitied buildings, and they fail to mention it is situated on top of a bar! So we decide to check it out inside anyway. When the front staff... More

I must say that they gave us a totally different point of view and said they did whatever they could to give the best service. Having said that and as we would like... More

We stayed at Galileo for the first three nights of our honeymoon in Israel. The first room we were assigned with the spa bath didn't look too good. We asked if we could move to a room with a shower, and they moved us without a problem. The next room was nice & clean, but just a little bit noisy.... More

Booked the this hotel based upon combination of the reviews of other travellers and the rate. If the room was not pre paid, I would have immediately left and found another hotel. The hotel has no elevator so be prepared to lug all your luggage up several twisting flights of stairs on old musty carpeting. The room we stayed in... More

I've never before given a "hotel" a terrible rating, and I've stayed in at least a hundred hotels worldwide over the past ten years. I have no idea how this property even qualifies as a hotel. It's a tiny dive in one of the least appealing neighborhoods of Tel Aviv, with the bare minimum of amenities. It should be labeled... More
