This was probably the one hotel in my vacation I was looking forward to. Reading amazing reviews and just teh concept of an art center mixed with a hotel sounded enticing. To not end in a sour note I will start with the bad. The decor and furnishing OUTSIDE the rooms were very nice, however the decor and furnishings INSIDE were reflective of a nice 3 star hotel. We had a two bedroom and the second bedroom was completely empty. It was too small to fit a bed but they could have easily used the space as a mini office or put some art on the walls. The balcony was HUGE but it was pretty much empty a table with an ash tray and two lack luster chairs. Inside the actual bedroom was an ok bed with ok bedding. The good? Staff were very nice, location is PRIME for exploring tel aviv and its also very close to night life and late night restauraunts. They also have a happy hour with a free champagne drink. There was a water outage in the area and they gave us a complimentary breakfast in their sister hotel down the street. I get that a "good" review should be good enough but its really the minor details of the positive collective that made me refrain from giving this hotel a 3 instead of a 4.
