Not a hotel, just a small group of apartments on the same floor. We knew that. We booked here after having seen the photos and some reviews on Booking.com. Truly, we were in shock of the condition the Suite was. Clearly, very poorly maintained and not very clean. Although we had booked for a Studio and got a free "upgrade" to a Suite, I am really wondering who wrote those "excellent 9.0" reviews on Booking.com. Very, very, small bedroom, cheap Ikea furniture, tones of mold on the shower. Obviously, the only positive aspect was the strategic location from the beach, the big space of the living-room and the good and free wi-fi access. We also got a free of charge very late departure from the apartment--very fair enough.

After having a chat with the kind owner, Amit, complaining that the photos on Booking.com had no relation with reality, he kept on insisting that this was the best he had--and we had got what we saw!!! For the money we paid, it was supposed be value for money... But, I wouldn't mind paying double that amount...if we could have avoided the mold in the shower and the general feeling of dirtiness in the apartment. All in all, if you intend to spend only 8 hours for sleeping and no frills stay for the sake of beach proximity, go for it. But If you are a hygiene freak... double check it with the manager before.

It's sad when a business relies on a certain competitive advantage--location and proximity to the beach that was--and leaves everything else on luck.To be honest, that is the case with many other hotels in TLV, too. I don't like to complain, but i hope a realistic review will only be for the better for this kind owner and his business.

TLV, however, was awesome!!!

In short, we absolutely loved Mapu 18. The apartment was clean, spacious, had a modern yet homely feel and contained a full kitchen which came in handy. The apartment is located in a block of flats close to a main road but we heard no traffic. It is a short walk to the beach or to shopping options/restaurants in the opposite direction. The owner was very friendly and offered a few suggestions for food etc. All in all a great place.

Inexpensive and not purely. After arrival, we are washed the floors, dishes, toilet and sink.

I am frequently travelling to Tel Aviv and mostly on business. I have stayed in many hotels in the city and I must say that I had the best experience at Mapu 18 Beach Apartments.

After reserving my Deluxe One Bedroom Apartment on Booking.com website, I have received an email from the owner explaining me on how to get to the apartment and how to get my keys despite of my late arrival. Once I got into the apartment I had to say "WOW"! The apartment was beautifully furnished, completely new and very clean. They even left in the fridge 2 bottles of mineral water which was a nice gesture after a long flight!

The location of the apartment cannot be better. It is just 3 minutes from the beach, 30 seconds to the closest supermarket. On Ben Yehuda Street where the apartments are located you can find everything that you may need. From a laundrette, to convenience stores, pharmacy, bank machine, restaurants, cafes - everything at the door step of these apartments.

I will definitely stay there again on my next visit to Tel Aviv! Highly recommended!
