“Good base for tel aviv”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2012

Comfortable private room with fridge patio overlooking the street and beach. It doesn't really seem the sort of hostel wth an atmosphere where you meet people if thats what you're after, but otherwise was good accomodation for the price (in tel aviv). Lady with tattoos at reception is nice and helpful but other lady is a typical Israeli, rude, uninterested and unable to answer basic questions. Free tea and coffee and dogy pool table upstairs. Free wifi which was good. In terms of location, was conveneient for the market, shopping centre and beach but a trek from old Jaffa.

Chose this hotel bases on price, and expected a room with a bath, but was disappointed to find that the bathroom was located down the hall. Breakfast was not included but could be purchases at a discount at the restaurant next door. Room was very basic, no floor coverings. Nice beach view, but traffic and pedestrian traffic could be noisy. Satellite TV offered very good programming.

Beachfront is a nice budget option if you want to be right on the beach. The staff is friendly and helpful. Our room (three bed en-suite on the ground floor) was basic, but spacious and clean with a great sea view. The heating system was good as was the little bathroom.
Free hot drinks are available all day; breakfast is not included, but they have a breakfast deal with a neighboring restaurant, for 25NIS you can have an obscenely large meal next door!

Room Tip: The twin and triple rooms are pretty much the same price. Go for the sea views!

OK, it's spartan, looks grotty from the outside and the streets around the hotel are nothing to write home about. At the same time, it's clean, offers free coffee, wi-fi and satellite TV (including BBC, CNN, etc.), has friendly English-speaking staff and is right on the beach (across a fairly busy road). No point in coming to this hotel if you are on expenses (there are many more swishy hotels in the immediate neighbourhood) but if you are paying your own way and are not too fussy about creature comforts then it's worth considering. And by the way, do not expect warm weather in March. I have just arrived from Switzerland where it is much warmer (and far less windy) than here in Tel Aviv.

Room Tip: I asked for a room with a sea view but was told that at this time of year (March) the wind coming of...

Beachfront Hotel is situated almost on the beach, near to the bus stop. There is fantastic view on the sea and promenade. Our room was very clean, the staff was helpful. Free wi-fi available in each room. It's not inexpensive but on the other hand we didn't find better option:)

The staff was great and also the views to the sea & beach. All guests have free coffee and tea throughout the day.
The passing by street was a bit too noisy.

The title says it all. With the exception of a few minor things this was a much bigger bang for the buck. The employees were friendly, helpful and above all trustworthy. They helped me find whatever I needed from a cell phone to exciting and affordable tours of Israel.
Nearby are nice places to eat and have a good time. All with a terrific view of the crisp, blue waves and sun. (oh, the sunsets. Wow.)
I will be going back.

Room Tip: The second floor rooms facing the sea are priced below value. Grab one.
