We've been there with a large party of friends, staying one night only - this is why the price issue beat any other criterion. It was cheap, indeed. It is a former residence built by Israeli government for new immigrants, then refurbished and converted into apartments.
First - you should have a car if you expect to make Arazim complex as a starting point for any activity in Tiberias. It is high almost on top of the hill - a nice point if you are lucky and get a room with the seaview.
Second - it is very basic, which is OK for the price they charge.
But the owner (or owners?) is seemingly lost in terms of what he is selling - basic lodging or "luxury" - of course not! - apartments. The furniture is simple but of modern style, with synthetic carpets (13-years old like them) on the floor, and yes they are dirty. All details of the recent refurbishment are.. how to say it? not fixed: water leaks from sanitary appliances, doors closing with special effort, etc. But all in all - it is clean and it works. Rooms have A/C, flat TV, there is Free Wi Fi and a couple of computers in the lobby.
The breakfast is basic but "as luxury as we imagine it" - lots of bread, cottage and other cheese, butter and some jam, boiled eggs, vegetables (poorly washed), tea, coffee. They may put just a half of food on tables, but ensure its cleanliness just a bit more than "apparently clean". If you need low price in not-so-cheap Israel, this property suits you.
