“Well designed ...but way too small”
Reviewed 10 February 2014

The hotel is well located in the middle of TLV , it has one if the best breakfast i had in any hotel and the service is best class. However , the room are very small ( means you open the closet , and the door hits the bed ) and the acoustics is fair - which means u hear everything that goes in the rooms nearby you ..from phone conversations to TV.

Dear ors_4,
Thank you for sharing your review. I was happy to learn you enjoyed our breakfast, location and the service delivered by our team.
As for the room size, although our standard rooms are 15 square meters, the majority of our guests find them to be functional and suitable for a short period of stay. Moreover, we offer bigger rooms (higher categories) at very reasonable rates.
I do hope to welcome you back to our hotel.
Best Regards,
Shany Ben Tolila

After reviewing not only my budget but also looking at many reviews of hotels in the area - I chose the Mendeli Street Hotel. I was naturally cautious due to the "newness" of the hotel and also the new reviews. But they were all positive. In that regard, I can only say that they were completely right! Highlights of my stay:
Excellent customer service - from check-in; to helping me with local area; organising tours (please choose rent-a-guide tours - awesome!); general advice and most of all pleasantness. It was truly home away from home.
Facilities - super clean; peaceful street and lovely rooms. I wouldnt question whether the rooms were small or not - they are right for the price range, but offer all of the amenities you need from cable tv to a wonderful shower and comfortable bed and free wifi! Ive only downgraded the points for pool and gym as the hotel doesnt have one - you have to pay to go across the street. But definitely no bother as the beach is a mere 5 minutes walk from the hotel; restaurants about 5-10 minutes. So definitely a good position in TLV. Breakfast is a respectable variety of european and local options - enough to keep you going!definitely tasty!!

I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone from a single traveller to a couple to families. its the most efficient place to stay for both price and location. Ive stayed in the hilton, intercontinental and crowne plaza - all good but -- No point spending 100's of dollars for a bigger hotel. This is just lovely! Thanks Mendeli staff for making my short stay just perfect!!!

Room Tip: make sure you ask for a double room.

Fantastic hotel, great location, very clean and modern. I didn't particular like the room layout at first with the sink in the middle of the room, but it actually worked great and made the room much more spacious. Nice modern appliance and fantastic power shower.
The staff was incredibly helpful and very nice. Always happy to give advice and help us out.
And the breakfast, what a sensational experience! They asked us to book a slot at check-in, which seemed a bit weird at first, but then we understood why when we went for breakfast. It was a delight of food and drinks, fresh squeezed fruit juices, good coffee, pizzas and breads made in fron of you in the oven. Nice pastry and all sort of delicious eggs on request.

A new hotel with a beautiful design element. Located in a quiet street near the seafront. The rooms are confortable and spacious. The breakfast is fantastic: it is possible to drink fresh orance juice and other excellent food.

Great hotel, wonderful staff, stylish rooms and an amazing breakfast.

Booked a standard room for one night through booking and got a complimentary upgrade for the superior room because we were celebrating our 10th anniversary.

Had a really great time and will defiantly go back.

After i checked few hotels in Tel Aviv and was largely dissapointed, I accidently got to this unfamiliar hotel. The location was great, the design of the hotel is beautiful and the price was really fair. So we decided to stay there. Although the first impression was very good, our experience during the time we spent there was even better - not only the room (not much of a view but the rest is almost perfect) as much as the wonderful staff that was happy to help in anything they could. Breakfast was also great.

To my opinion. it's better than anything else you can find in Tel Aviv on the same price level, and even better than some (maybe many) of the more expensive hotels.

From the moment you arrive this hotel is in a class of its own- charming, efficient staff welcome you, showing you to stylish, spotlessly clean rooms with everything you might need.

As for breakfast - world class wonderful buffet full of beautifully prepared vegetables,Israeli specialities and perfectly cooked fresh eggs and wonderful warm fresh bread. Heaven!
