I'd be careful at the Ophir hotel. Upon arrival, they often say they did not receive financial payment online for the room. The staff will claim the online company only reserved the room and cash is needed to pay for it. TA has a shortage of hotels, so one naturally comes up with the cash. Later on, one finds they've paid for the room twice. Getting Ophir to fix this problem is like trying to grow hair on a bald head. They pocket the money and claim they're working it out with the online organization. You leave the country having paid for a room two times for one stay and as many times as you write the Ophir, you will not hear back. The rooms are typical two star rooms in Israel. Somewhat clean with dust in the corners, cigarette burns in the bathtub, very old, stained towels, etc... You're lucky if your room's air conditioner works, etc... It's a shifty place, which is why it is normally the cheapest hotel in TA. Israelis won't stay at the Ophir and many tourists know better. But if your desperate, just make sure to only pay cash. Never charge a room online.
