After 9 days of actively experiencing the holy sites and beauty that is Israel, we were looking forward to a couple of days of R&R by the beach in Tel Aviv to round out the final 2 days of our trip. The hotel we chose was the Maxim, and we weren't disappointed. Although our room was somewhat small for the three of us compared to our previous lodging in Jerusalem and Haifa, we didn't come to stay in the room, which was, to be fair, nicely appointed and quite cozy. The best aspects of Maxim are its excellent location and value. By value I mean free parking in their underground gated garage, the excellent complimentary breakfast served each morning and complimentary snacks (fresh fruit, cakes, etc.) available throughout the day alongside the instant cappuccino maker. For location, the hotel is a stone's throw from the sandy beach (with lounge chairs and umbrellas rentable for reasonably few shekels), Mediterranean waves and an assortment of seaside eateries and nightspots. Towels for the beach are available at the front desk. The Maxim staff were always pleasant and professional as well. When I had an issue with the room safe (user error), they were there in a flash to resolve it. The lobby is comfortable and inviting, with a piano and laptops available for Internet access, and there's a furnished roof deck with a great view of the beach and surrounding areas in case you want to uncork a bottle of wine and watch the amazing sunsets. No pool (not an issue with the beach right there) or gym in the Maxim, but that was easy to overlook with all of the positives. The only things preventing me from giving the Maxim a full 5 rating is the smallish room size and the lack of a gym, but we would definitely stay at the Maxim again and would gladly recommend it to others.
