“Terrible room, terrible service, terrible hotel”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012

The room was very small. The walls are painted black. The lighting is incredibly harsh. The furniture is cheap plastic and uncomfortable. I was traveling alone and after the first night they removed the second pillow and second towel. The shower was not cleaned. There is nothing to eat or drink at the hotel - no bar, restaurant, room service, mini bar or even a vending maching. The closest restaurant or shop is at least a 10 minute walk away unless you want to cross the street and eat at what appears to be a very nice Hilton.

The service was also incredibly poor. I had to leave the hotel at 3am to make an early morning flight and I didn't have any cash so I asked the person at the desk to order me a car that I could pay for with a credit card and she refused. She said they had an agreement with the taxi company and could not call anyone else. I asked her for the contact info so I could call myself and she told me to google it.

Stay anywhere but at this hotel.

Room Tip: Choose a room at a different hotel.

The room is small, but adequate, and very clean. We could see the sea from our window. The staff were friendly and helpful and I loved the "kits" with which they could provide you. eg beach kit of towels, mats etc. Breakfast was excellent and so was the evening "happy hour". The roof deck was a great place for relaxing, having a drink & watching the sunset. The beach is across the road, though the small park & down the slope. Lots of restaurants nearby. Their stairwell fitness centre was amusing.

A very convenient location, easy and short walk to beach, boardwalk, restaurants and shopping. The room was not spacious, but enough room for the two of us and luggage. There is free wireless internet, the breakfast was nice, a fairly good selection of food. There is a nice evening happy hour with a variety of beverages and food. The staff was generally helpful, not overtly friendly, but they did their jobs. The hotel is also a very short taxi ride to the domestic airport, within 15 minutes. There is a roof deck that provided a nice open air view.

Stayed 2 nights at the Melody due to an unexpected extended vacation caused by Hurricane Sandy. I found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. The breakfast and evening happy hour were excellent with very many choices of food and beverage. The room and roof deck were very stylish and comfortable. I highly recommend the Melody to anyone traveling to central Tel Aviv.

A boutique hotel. Although the room feels as if you are sleeping in an office, the staff and services package make the Melody a great choice. Complimentary drinks (wine included) and "snacks" - enough to fill anyone - in the evening and a good range if food for breakfast plus free wifi or the loan of an iPad and a bicycle. The roof top lounge area has great views. Car hire places are 5 mins walk. If you fly in in the evening I would recommend a taxi from the airport and hiring a car the morning afterwards

Fabulous hotel with well appointed comfortable rooms. Great view of the park, the beach, and the sea. Great location for access to Tel Aviv beach and restaurants and close to the business districts. A bit of road noise but then everything near the beach has that as well. Fast wifi, which unfortunately requires occasionally re-entering of the wifi password, which makes it impossible to up or download large files unattended.

Room Tip: Access to a fitness center via the Hilton across the street.
