I booked this hotel for a recent, five-night business stay, hoping that a boutique hotel would provide some of the warmth lacking from the bigger convention hotels. I wish that had been the case. The room was nicely decorated, and the hotel furnishings were indeed 'chic,' but there's not much that really makes this hotel special (aside from a larger-than-expected tile shower). The climate control system also refused to work properly during my stay, and it is not advised to leave the balcony slider open, as the balconies share the same space.
The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and the bathroom was nicely appointed. The bad news was that housekeeping barely changed the sheets and towels, and the hotel staff seemed indifferent to guests entering and leaving. For the price, the experience should feel less like it would in a hostel.
Yes, this hotel is located in Dizengoff Center, but the area seemed much quieter than it had been in previous years' visits. Perhaps the excitement has moved to Ibn Gvirol and Bograshov.
I admit that I bought into the boutique hotel hype in Tel Aviv. If you can live without much space or attention to detail, you'll find the place charming.
