I really enjoyed my stay in Central Hotel. The staff were incredibly nice and helpful, just ask them anything and they will provide countless tips and great suggestions!
The room was a tad small, but for this price and in such a great location, it's definitely worth it.
I've looked at the review below by Dennis, and I must say that you really cannot compare a city in southeast Asia to Tel Aviv. Tel Aviv is an incredibly small and expensive city. And as someone who looked into many other hotels in the same price range as Central's, I must say that its a unique value for money accommodation in Tel Aviv.

The reality of our experiences in the Central Hotel in Tel Aviv bear little relation to the glowing reviews I read prior to booking. After staying there and then reading the bad reviews, translating those in languages other than English, I can now say they were right on. The location is fine and the staff was friendly and helpful but our room was tiny, noisy and, shall we say, well-worn. The bed took up 2/3 of the room. The shower/bathroom was tinier still and the sink the tiniest I've seen in my life; an oval about 11 inches by 6 inches. You can't wash your face without getting your legs and feet wet. The floor of the room was partially covered by thin, red, industrial mats that needed vacuuming. The bottom, fitted sheet didn't fit the mattress and came partially off each night.

Their website calls it a "boutique hotel" and "stylish". It also boasts "sound-proof rooms". This is a cruel joke. We had room 111, across the narrow hall from the "dining room" and by the reception desk. Every noise is heard clearly inside the room, people passing late at night, staff talking on the phone, guests eating the mediocre breakfast etc.. There was no seal around the thin door which was clearly silhouetted by light from the hallway and allowed all noises through. A spritzer was installed high on the wall. Every half hour or so it squirted a cloying fragrance to mask the odors from the bathroom. Their "garden" is nothing more than a dilapidated patio.

I asked for a different room but was told the only one available was the one next to ours that opens right into the lobby. Little difference it would've made because after talking with other guests, their rooms must've been no better than ours.

In Southeast Asia, I wouldn't be surprised to pay 10, maybe 15 dollars for a room like this in a guesthouse. But at least there, the floors would be immaculate. All in all, an way over-priced dump!

The Best Trip Ever!!
"I'm from Cape town South Africa.
In August of this year I travelled to Israel and Had it not been for the staff at the comfort hotel I would have been completely lost !not alone was there rooms in impeccable condition ,their service of the most professional standard I have had in years , but they received me as a friend and basically helped me plan my trip as well as organize further accommodation in other parts of Israel .
They are also situated close to the most beautifully beaches and on the most important bus routes for tourists !
What more can I say thank you so much to the owner and staff at the comfort hotel ,you made my trip and stay an experience of a lifetime !

Many thanx again !!!!!
