I stayed here recently whilst on another business trip to Israel.
Having previously stayed in the beach front hotels in Tel Aviv, as well as Jerusalem and Ashkelon, I thought central Tel Aviv would be a good option.
For the time being, this appears to be the only hotel on the boulevard at the moment and it showed when I told people where we were staying and everyone wanted to come and check it out. I believe there are more planned along this road in the future.
My room was very well appointed, offering pretty much everything I needed, except for natural light! It became a bit claustrophobic in the end. The curtain behind the headboard opened slightly to face the building opposite the narrow alley. Thankfully, the lighting was very bright, but it still didn't inspire me to want to spend much time in the room. If I were to make some suggestions to improve the room, I would ask for somewhere to hang my towel near the sink which was outside of the shower area. I would also recommend that the cleaner checks the consumption of the mini bar and top up what had been removed. The water was never replaced. There was no milk supplied in the room, despite there being a nespresso coffee machine and kettle. Small touches would go a long way. I must say though that the hospitality downstairs was second to none. I couldn't drink any more free fizzy wine if I tried.
My neighbour had a habit of playing loud music long into the night, which came blaring through the adjoining door between our rooms. Coupled with the music came the cigarette smoke which flowed through during the night, straight into my bedroom area. I ended up stuffing towels around the door to try to stop it. When I complained, they suggested they could do little to stop the smoking and offered to move me to a new room. In my opinion, my neighbour should have been the one to be moved. To a different hotel that has smoking rooms. This is advertised as a 100% non smoking hotel (& probably their insurance premium reflects this) so any smoking should be seen as a breach of the rules. That may make me sound like a bit of a killjoy, but my work clothes really smelt bad the next day.
If I were visiting Tel Aviv for a city break with my partner, this hotel would fit the bill fine. The hospitality was great, the rooms were clean, offering excellent free wi-fi and overall, I guess it was reasonable considering this is in a very prominent part of Tel Aviv. For a business traveller, I would perhaps choose one of the sea front hotels again next time as for me, they offer more facilities, parking, better light and relaxing/business areas albeit at a cost.
