I've been travelling to Tel Aviv for years and used to stay in 5-star well-known named hotels on the beach. I was wondering why these expensive hotels couldn't fulfill my expectations for the price I've payed; they were usually old, need renovation or not clean as they had to be.
This time in September 2011, my colleague coincidentally chose Hotel Vital in the city center, a boutique business hotel. It was much cheaper ($175 vs $275) than the other hotels I've been checking. The hotel is actually based on 4th and 5th floors of a big business building where there is a hospital and many doctor clinic. The business lounge and breakfast room are on the 12th floor having a great view over Tel Aviv center (Weizmann street).
The rooms are very clean and you almost have everything you need in the room. Although facing the big Weizmann street, my room didn't have any outside noise. The receptionists are very kind and helpful.
The breakfast is served as "Israeli" breakfast which is offering a lot of choice of cheese, fresh vegetables, juices, coffee, pastries, cereals etc.. This is great for Meditereneans like me who are used to eat cheese in the morning.
I've stayed 4 nights in the hotel and I can say that it was a very pleasant stay for a short trip.
The only thing I didn't like was the room perfume which was way too much and heavy inside the building and rooms.
