The Melody Hotel is clean, comfortable and run by people who seem to care what they are doing. The people who work at Melody, especially Anastasia, answered our endless questions with patience and good humor. The man who checked us in (whose name I cannot recall) was very welcoming.
Melody offers breakfast, afternoon snacks, bicycles, internet access, laptop computers and a nice little roof deck, all free of charge.
The breakfast was quite good for a hotel breakfast. The Wife especially liked the variety of salads. The bicycles were very useful, especially since the hotel is so close to HaYarkon Park and the Promenade. The free internet worked beautifully at all times and we even made use of the free laptop.
One of the best perks about the hotel has to be the roof deck. It is clean and comfortable, open 24 hours, and has a postcard view of sunsets over the Mediterranean.
The rooms are small but comfortable, with a variety of pillows, and look exactly like they do on every website I have seen. There are plenty of outlets in the room to recharge all the devices we seem to need these days. The entire hotel is non-smoking, and taxi drivers never had a problem finding it.
The housekeeping at Melody always did an excellent job. We were never at a loss for towels or sheets and the room was always kept clean. The refrigerator was cold and could be made even colder had we wanted.
It is a quick walk or bike ride to the park and port. The beach is on the other end of a small park that is across the street from the hotel. Rabin Square, Ben Yehuda, Dizengoff, Allenby, HaCarmel Market and most of the Bauhaus architecture are within a 30 minute walk. Old Jaffa is well beyond that, but a quick bus or taxi ride.
There is a nice 24 hour (even on Shabbat) breakfast restaurant a few blocks away on Jabotinsky and Dizengoff with very good homemade bread and enormous omelettes. There is an excellent little bistro with fresh fish and the best falafel on Retsif HaAliya, about a block away from the clock tower and around the corner from Abulafia & Sons.
The Dizengoff Center has seen better days, but the newer Azrieli Center is another 10 minutes away on foot. The best shopping is at street markets anyway. Sumac and za'atar are everywhere.
The Melody is simply a nice little hotel run by people who care. If only they would open hotels in East Asia.
