“Friendly boutique hotel in a central location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

We haven't actually stayed here but we attended a spectacular New Year's eve party which was spread throughout the hotel.
There is a large roof garden and bar with spectacular views over Tel Aviv, as well as a ground floor garden and outside bar area.
The staff are extremely friendly and helpful and from relatives who have stayed here, we have been told that the rooms are very comfortable.

Brown TLV is making you feel very welcome, they have a relaxed atmosphere, a warm and funky interior decoration, very helpful staff, and it is the kind of place where you can easily stay around for half a day without being bored. The bar is very funky, they mix great cocktails, and the top floor has a terrace that is buzzing in the summer evenings. The rooms are rather small but very well equipped. The location is close to the beach, but not in the best part of town, yet very close to Rothschild Avenue. I will definitely stay here again...

Room Tip: Check out your room before moving in, so you know in advance that they are small, be it very well eq...

We stayed 3 nights in March during the TLV Marathon.

The awesome staff got us up in time at night to run the marathon and helped us arrange for a excellent deep tissue sport massage when coming back ;)

Perfect location for both beach- and nightlife!

We´ll be back next year for more ;)

Room Tip: Ask for a room which is not directly connected to the elevator or the stairs...

By far, the best part of staying here was the staff who was incredibly nice and helpful. They kept the outdoor terrace open for us after hours and even brought out heaters without being asked for example.

Location is sketchy, not in the best part of Tel Aviv. Evidently, this is supposed to be a positive in a boutique hotel. Maybe I'm too old or too well traveled...

Room and atmosphere was okay. The whole hotel is brown as indicated by the name and designed in 1970s style. It looked cool initially but got old quickly. The room itself was small and we had plumbing issue with both the toilet and shower that took the hotel multiple trips to fix.

Lastly, the outdoor bar on the terrace is supposed to be a Tel Aviv hot spot. It's nice but still overlooking the back of buildings... Also, it wasn't packed despite our being there on Saturday so I'm not quite sure how "hot" it really is.

Dear SuitNflipflops,

Thank you for you review and your kind words about our staff who are indeed great and are always looking out for our guests.

We were sorry to hear that you didn't connect with the hotels style and design which was indeed inspired by the 70's with retro furniture and warm colors.

We were surprised about your impression of the hotel location right between 2 of the Tel aviv's trendiest neighbourhoods: Nachalat Benjamin and neve tzedek which are full of boutique shops, cute caffes and various restaurants.

We hope you enjoyed our Garden Lounge and hope you weren't too disappointed about the quiet Saturday eve. Please note that Sunday is working day in Israel and therefore Saturday is not a typical "going out" evening.

Lastly, we apologize for the plumbing issue you encountered. We have treated the problem.

We hope to welcome you back on your next visit to Tel aviv and thank you again for taking the time to share you experience in our hotel.

With kind regards,

What a great experience I had in this hotel during my last stay in march.
Sometimes I just didn't want to leave the building.... Trust me sun deck helps a lot.
My single room was so cute and it was just perfect for me and my needs.
Staff really friendly and hotel manager (Mr Tamari) more than helpful
Thank you for having me there.

Thank you for your lovely review.

We are very happy that you had a good experience staying with us.

Then sundeck is indeed magical and I think you will be happy to hear that we will soon be reopening our rooftop bar for the summer so now you can chill in and enjoy the sunset with one of our summer cocktails.

I do hope that you got around to explore the amazing city of Tel-Aviv and all it has to offer.

Possibly the smallest room I have ever stayed in, that said the room had everything I needed and the bathroom was well appointed with an excellent shower. The only issue I had with my room was how dark it was and that noise from corridor was a bothersome.

The hotel is an excellent location near nice shops and restaurants and a 5-10 min walk from the beach. Breakfast is in included in the room rate and is served at one of 3 different cafes located near the hotel.

Staff at the hotel left a something to be desired, when I arrived the reception desk was not manned and it took 5 mins for someone to arrive, but instead of checking me in she decided to make a phone call first!

In addition at 9.30 in the morning I the sign on my door asking for my room to be cleaned, but by 4pm nothing had happened. When I complained no apology was offered, however, my room as promptly cleaned but it was clearly a rush job! The hotel was able to arrange a taxi to the airport efficiently and check out was a breeze.

All in all the hotel offers good value and an excellent location, improve the customer service and this could be a very good hotel.

When the taxi driver stopped where he thought the Brown TLV Hotel was, he was close, but confused. Where he thought the Brown was, it wasn't. But when I looked nearby, I saw one brown building amid a host of near-white buildings. I told him, I bet that's it. Sure enough, it was. I was immediately stuck by the stylish interior with a 20-foot high bookshelf and comfortable lobby. The small registration area is efficient, and the Welcome glass of champagne certainly was surprising and appreciated. The Brown TLV is a short walk to the beach, and I easily ventured by foot another day to Jaffa. The property is in a prime location, on a quiet street, not far from the Carmel Market and Neve Tzedek. The room is stylish and modern. I'll admit, I've never seen a hotel make the color brown look so cool, so trendy. Room is clean, a bit small, with wooden floors, and a trendy bathroom/shower that is more like you'd have at home as opposed to a standard 4-star hotel. Appreciate the 2 complimentary bottles of Evian Water in the room and, naturally, a box of chocolate! Kudos to the staff -- friendly, helpful and professional. (English and Hebrew). I went with Lulu's Kitchen for breakfast, which is about a 5-minute walk from the Brown, and was very pleased. Good eggs, while others praised the yogurt-granola offering. The outside/covered bar at the Brown was great, comfortable and relaxing. Kudos to bartender Paz for exceptional service and a how-can-I-help attitude. Very impressed with the Brown TLV -- check it out; you won't be disappointed!!
