This hotel provides a pleasant room in a great, hip, comfortable location on Rothschild Blvd. Like other Tel Aviv blvds, there is a wide median with pedestrian and bicycle pathways, and tall trees forming a shaded tunnel. At the end of most blocks, there is a coffee shop or small restaurant.
The hotel is small and its lobby is like a nice, large den. It has nice couches, bookshelves full of interesting magazines and books to read, an espresso/cappuccino machine that I loved to use and a tall bistro table with fruit or pastries obviously there for anyone's enjoyment with silverware, glasses, china etc. shelved at the side.
Our room was actually like a small 1 bedroom apt. No balcony, but living room was panelled with windows, while the bedroom was quieter and had only 1 window. By US standards the decor and condition of the suite was above average.
Most notable to me was the relaxed and helpful attitude provided by the staff. They were very generous with their time and attention and they all spoke perfect English. We had only to ask for ice when Yoav said oh, we're out, I'll go around the corner to buy some right away and bring it to your room. Anything needed in the room, e.g. extra towels, hangers, a belt for the bathrobe was sent up promptly.
Concierge services were outstanding. Before arriving I asked them about getting us tickets for 3 different dance, music and theater performances. Using our Visa number they had all the tickets the next day and emailed receipts and performance info. The actual tix printouts were ready for us on arrival.
I was surprised there was no hotel breakfast, since Israeli hotel bksf is a unique & bountiful treat. However that reduced the hotel charge and also gave us a chance to eat at other interesting places (like Benedict!)
Cost was really reasonable for the lodging alone, but the warm staff service added tons of value. I can really recommend the Rothschild 71. (there is another Rothschild hotel, 96, on the same street. It might be great as well, just note that they are separate facilities.)
