Let's get the bad things out of the way first. The apartment is privately owned in a apart hotel , so is not under the control of the hotel facilities. It could do with a lick of paint, especially on the balcony were it's looking tired and is peeling. The door to the balcony is a nightmare to open, it sticks and my wife couldn't manage to open it herself. You really need significant strength to open it even a few inches. The excuse that it's for child safety is rubbish as I have stayed in the same building last year & it opened with ease.as it's privately owned you have to raise problems with the owners rep - the hotel washes it's hands of any responsibility. We had a leak on the first day, the kettle was broken & no sharp knives (another child safety excuse) but to their credit Andrea & Elem (the reps) sorted everything out within 24 - 48 hours.
Now for the good bits, the location is superb & the view is the best in tel aviv - you are directly opposite the beach & the med and I mean directly - it's the other side of the road - 15 seconds walk. 2 mins walk and you're among the restaurants and sidewalk cafes. The apartment is large, a great comfy bed & an excellent bathroom (bring your own toiletries - they provide loo paper). The living room / kitchenette are well appointed with cooking facilities, cable TV (lots of English channels) and room to entertain your guests with sundowners to watch the sun go down. The hotel staff are helpful & friendless but will wash their hands if you have problems with the apartment. However they will order you taxis, carry your luggage, book restaurants etc. if you book this apartment (I will again) make sure you can use the hotel beach towel service, which is very useful.
