The Hotel is in a great location. The staff are very friendly and helpful. It is small, clean and great value for money. They do not serve breakfast but there is free Coffee and Muffins. There are plenty of Cafes and Restaurants nearby.

Stayed here on 2 occasions during April 2016, and was very disappointed after reading all of the positive reviews. The location is great (market 2 minutes / beach 10 minutes), the price is cheap and the roof-top terrace is okay....but....the staff would have to be the most unfriendly people I have ever met working at a hotel, the room was...

We booked a room for a couple after reading the Tripadvisor reviews. Upon entering, I followed all the tips and asked to be placed in a room away from the bars - "I'm sorry, they're all full" I was told. The bar was open late (2-3AM?). It was mostly a noticeable murmur, but occasionally someone screaming. It didn't wake us... More

Very central location yet a quiet one. Next to the beach, the commercial zone, tranportation. Simple and comfortable room. Nice top roof terracy. The only defect is the address, as it is a little street that nobody in the neighborhood seems no know. Of course, just small inconvenient. Highly recomended.

It is a central little hotel, good for just sleeping, as there is no breakfast. It could do with a refit, but it is still on the whole a positive experience to stay there. Things are looking a bit tatty but they are not out and out dirty. Staff I must say are helpful and quite chilled.

The hotel appeared to be rundown and the carpet marked. However, my wife and I found the hotel to be clean, including the bath. Entry was via a sliding door. Tel Aviv is a modern vibrant city and of course the hotel's location is in an older location. We chose it for the price and to be near the Shuk... More

Very nice little hotel. Great customer service and location couldn't be better. This was our first time in Israel and we didnt know anyone and didnt know what to expect. Booked this hotel from priceline.com. When we arrived, we were pleasantly surprised. They also have a roof deck which is very nice for relaxing or sunbathing
