The Tamar is a super nice, clean, comfortable hotel in Baka. It is very close to the renovated train station and Emek Rafiim. The rooms are spacious and have great airconditioning and tvs in each room. The bathroom is small but clean.

I spent one night at the Tamar Residence with my family. The five of us were split into two separate rooms. Each room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The location is great and very quiet at night which makes sleeping with the windows open, no problem at all. The staff were friendly and even though I mixed up the check...
