“Do your research very carefully”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012

I booked this hotel quite a long time back - basing my decision on 2 main things. The first was the location in relation to Dizengoff - the second was that it offered breakfast and I wanted at least one Israeli hotel breakfast on this visit.
I am probably to blame for not checking more recent reviews - I just went on to booking.coms site and the last reviews said it like it was, but there were earlier positive reviews which were completely misleading.

The hotel delivered one thing - the location to Dizengoff centre - it literally is across the road. However Dizengoff is not what it used to be years ago anyhow.

And the hotel was really awful. I have to concede - some of the staff did try but the hotel is way beyond being able to deliver any type of value.

The pictures posted on the bookings.com page are completely wrong. I have to still check the trip advisor site - but it is my preferred and valued source so am posting here automatically.

I dont really want to go into detail - tho will happily answer questions - just be warned.

I would not put my dog there! Also a serious issues around fire safety. Truely not a good place to stay - should have slept on the beach - Pay more for the first night and then find somewhere cheaper.

tel aviv, 18.10.2012

just left the hotel, never again... noisy, messy, dirty, not well maintained... the whole building should disappear... missing light bulbs, no spare, air conditioning turned off early morning, dirty and smelly bathroom, furniture is not second or third hand but rather four, breakfast just bears the name...
arrived yesterday night, paid around 100 swiss francs for the room and could not find anything else without paying at least the double... tel aviv is a rip off... going back home...

The hotel in general was really torn-down, dirty and old, incapacious.
The breakfast was not served in the restaurant since they untrue claimed that they had
plumbing issues, more likely they had put this in system so say so to unstead offer a “breakfast” to pick from a table at the reception which was only cheep sponge cake with undrinkable tea and coffee. The hotel did offer to bring breakfast to our room, after complaining. Usually they would`nt care about anything, even that I mentioned that I do wright reviews. But after asking for refund, they came with only a plate of sauces (2 of them were rotten) and just bread.
We could not change the AC in our room, either it was ON or OFF, so it was either to cold or to hot
I had paid extra for a better room, and got one with a normalsize bathtub with some holes around, with was unclean/filthy. No drain-hole in the floor, the water was on the floor even the day after. The curtain was touching the body under showering.
There was nowhere to rest outside our room.
Booking.com tried 2 month to have them refund me without successing and paid me from themselves with a only a part and poorness in the whole case. Still they keep such a hotel as co-partner.

Room Tip: one room with terrace but not safety and noisy

This hotel is located very central and an option when you don't want to spend to much money. But honestly- the rooms are in terrible condition: the walls are dirty, the sink didn't work and it's pretty noisy. And which is the worst of all, there is no welcoming atmosphere, the staff really doesn't care about the guests. And because of that I will definitly not go there again.

prime location but noisy from the near street. basic conditions. asked for cash payment. air condition is controlled from front desk.
if u are alone or couple with little money you can go there. don't pay over 75-90$ it doesn't worth more. not for families and kids. it looks like they also give rooms by the hour
