We did not make any reservation in Tel Aviv and this hotel was the only one in vicinity that had vacancies. As compared to other places in Tel Aviv (see my other reviews), this hotel was the best choice.
As for the pros, the hotel is located close to the beach and to pubs and shopping areas in Tel Aviv (which does not help you if you plan to visit Tel Aviv during Shabbat; also you get the noise from very busy Ben Yehuda street). It seems to be the budget option as compared to the hotels in vicinity (we paid USD 200/ 3 persons with breakfast; although at the checkout they were trying to get additional USD 80 from us). Breakfast offered a good selection and was quite tasty. There was a free wi – fi in the room. The room also had a fridge and a large wardrobe. Hotel lobby looks very nice.
As for the cons: rooms are dirty, walls look like they have been painted years ago, furniture is old and stained. Our room had a terrace (which was advertised by the reception staff as a big advantage) but it was so dirty that we could not make any use of it. The bathroom had an ugly sewer smell and when we requested a staff member to do something about it or to give us another room she did not react at all (we dealt with the smell by ourselves). The staff seems not to care much about the guests; also we had to request them several times to fix the A/C.
Although, as mentioned above it was the best choice out of any other choices in the city, next time, I would not book a room there and would rather look for some other option in advance.
