We passed one week at this little ( app. 10 rooms ) hotel. The rooms are basic but very comfortable ( fridge, air conditioning, tea/coffee maker, Flat-TV ), furnituring a bit old fashioned, but in very good condition! Unfortunately the fridge did not cool and my single room had no safe ). All rooms are on first floor. Second floor...

This is a small hotel where the rooms are small but more than adequate with AC/heat, TV. Wifi, fridge. There's a rooftop patio as well. Small but functional would be a better description. You don't want to have a lot of baggage. The staff will help in any way they can. There is no lobby but it isn't really necessary....

The sheets were clean and crisp and there was a good selection of TV channels. Just as well, because I felt seriously unsafe in this neighbourhood and made a conscious decision not to risk going out of the hotel. I locked myself into the room and stayed there for 24 hours until it was time to leave for the airport...

I was comfortable with the gritty neighborhood and its proximity to the market, some great cafes, and the beach—a real flavor of Tel Aviv, but the place seems really run down and dirty. The rugs in the two rooms we stayed in were barely vacuumed. I would NEVER take a bath in the tub so don't pay extra for the...

I have stayed at the Galileo hotel. The localisation is rather good, not too far from the sea. But the hotel is noisy, and the room was very dirty. The worst was the bathtub. The description of the hotel told that we had a "jaccuzi" bathtub in the room. In fact, the water was full of dark pieces of disgusting...

Don't believe ANY positive reviews about this hotel. The location is Hell, and smells of strong urine. Parking is non-existent, and the one-ways streets in the area are maddening; it will take you at least an hour to work your way out of this area to get on a main Tel Aviv road. The reviews that state that it's close...
