Based on the reviews we expected a bit more. Location is great, 5 min walk from the beaches and 5 mins from the 445 airport bus which is good value and efficient (45 mins to airport). Tel Aviv is an expensive city but worth a visit. Old Jaffa a must, 35 min walk along the promenade. Had a lovely meal at Jessica’s just around the corner from the hotel.
Had a suite which was two rooms plus a very small bathroom. Shower leaked, no matter how you had the doors or seals the water would pour out onto the floor. Free tea and coffee on ground floor a nice touch. Breakfast was good. Printing facilities for boarding passes but a problem with the printer/cartridge meant nothing printed properly.
I guess our main disappointment was the unfriendliness of the staff. They were efficient and business like but based on the reviews we thought they’d be more helpful and pleasant. The lady at breakfast didn’t smile throughout, reception point blankly refused to consider a 1 hr delay on our check out....they might well have been full that night but with a large group checking out at 10am and check in not being until 3pm would an extra hr for one room to allow a 2yr old to nap ahead of a long journey home been that much of a problem?
Would recommend paying a bit more and staying in a hotel to be honest. less
