We booked 3 nights at this boutique hotel based on the mostly positive reviews on this forum. Our experience unfortunately was not so great. We checked in rather late in the evening at around 8.30pm. We were coming in from the bus station as we had crossed over from Jordan earlier in the day & we were exhausted & hungry. We were looking forward to a few comforts after some hectic days in Wadi Rum. The cab dropped us off on the street out front...there was no doorman so we dragged in our luggage into the small lobby where we were met by Adi at the front desk. He explained a few things & offered us a coffee but we wanted to just get into our room. What I found really strange was we had considerable amount of luggage but he didn't lift a finger to help even me & I was struggling. The room was okay size but the furniture was weird - supposedly designer but just plain Uncomfortable. They provided no baggage racks which meant all the bags on the floor which again is so inconvenient. For any decent hotel this a very normal requirement or at the very least provide a space for keeping big bags. We found that some of the toiletries in the bathroom were obviously used by the previous occupants of the room. The caps were not screwed properly & one of them was leaking. Housekeeping had not bothered to throw them just simply kept them there along with some fresh ones. Disgusting ! The next day I asked for an ironing board. The young girl, I think her name was Miriam looked a bit perplexed at first & then came back after a quite a while with an iron & a dirty old stained hand held board. Made me wonder people don't require irons ? We met the manager Tali the next morning....she wasn't too friendly or hospitable. Miriam was friendly & offered us some coffee. We enquired about a Sim & a Rav card & were told that we would have to look on the street for a phone shop. The location of the hotel is on a buzzing street full of cafes, shops & restaurants so we didn't have to walk too far to find a shop selling the cards. At the hotel they told us that we would have to go 10kms away about 25 minutes by taxi to find a Rav card recharge place. We are very well travelled & that just didn't sound right....the authorities are not going to make the purchase of an everyday travel card so difficult. The guy who sold us the SIM card told us we would find it at the pharmacy next to our hotel. I can't remember the name of the shop but it was literally the next building sharing a common wall. It was that easy....the girl at the counter was lovely & one of the customers in the queue offered to walk with us to where we were going as he was going that way. Didn't Tali know that Rav cards are available next door ? She's managing a hotel & she didn't know this very basic piece of information relevant to all tourists ??? When we came back in the late afternoon we found our room was not made up. The clothes line in our bathroom didn't work but despite repeated requests nothing was done about it our entire stay. Later in the night I found the used toiletries I had kept aside were again put back along with the other things. It became a little game in our 3 days there. Every time we got into the elevator it would go straight down to the basement to their laundry room. The courtyard is nothing but a covered backyard with seating, nothing special. The morning we left we couldn't get a an Uber or any taxi to take us to the train station. Tali & her staff did nothing to help us either with a taxi or with our luggage. The only thing going for this boutique property is its location otherwise its neither designer nor particularly appealing. For the money they are charging the service & amenities is very lacking & Tali we found just rude. Pretty sad considering everyone we met in Israel,strangers, people on the streets, shop keepers all so friendly & helpful.…
Stay in this hotel few time , great location, clean and nice room , friendly staff especially the front lady who was super nice and handful, great for family vacation, 3 blocks from the beach, in the center of Tel Aviv close to all coffee shops and bars
This is a wonderful little GEM in the heart of Tel Aviv. Everything was within walking distance and every other restaurant within a 2 mile radius was amazing! The staff bent over backwards to help make our stay enjoyable and guide us in getting the most out of our visit to Tel Aviv. If you like cozy, quaint, affordable, good service, and nice people this is the place for you!
The Hotel was great. I will recommend it to anyone visiting TelAviv. The staff was so friendly and helpful and bent over backwards to make you feel at home. The cooks were cozy and so comfortable! The hotel is within walking distance to everything and we will definitely stay there again!
We stayed here for a week in November. All the staff were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. The breakfasts were delicious and we enjoyed them in the lovely private courtyard. The hotel is walking distance of Hilton Beach (about 7 minutes’ walk away). We had an executive suite room which was spotlessly clean. The extra room with the sofa was great for relaxing. The bed was very comfortable. The only small negative is that the bathroom in our room was very small although it had an excellent shower. The hotel is in a great location on the corner of Dizengoff with lots of shops and restaurants nearby. The buses are very cheap and frequent. We loved the personal touch of being in a boutique hotel. I highly recommend the A23.
I stayed at the Hotel for 7 nights in March. I found this Hotel at the Trip Advisor. Wonderful place! Room is very clean, with regular room cleaning service. Excellent location-few steps to Dizengoff , next to bus stops, many many shops, cafes, stores etc. But Hotel staff was the main pleasure of that Hotel. They knew all their guests by their name, helped with taxi any time of the day and night. Coffee drinks-they were preparing them at any time of the day. Wonderful Tali and all staff made the stay very memorable. Thank you very much! I miss your morning croissants being just baked!
Stayed here for 4 nights whilst visiting family nearby. So glad we chose this hotel, it was the perfect location, everything is nearby and walking distance- cafes, bars, restaurants, shops etc. The staff were all lovely, and the room & bathroom a very good size and beautifully decorated. Would absolutely recommend and we will definitely stay here again next time we are in Tel Aviv!
Just spent 19 days at this gorgeous Italian inspired boutique hotel that is now around 5 years young and offers stylish rooms, is well run and spotlessly clean . I previously stayed here just after the hotel opened and was most impressed with the offering . A23 is run by a lovely friendly team headed up by Tali . The team are most welcoming and make you feel like a valued guest and friend with nothing being to much trouble. The hotel has a lovely internal private courtyard where guests love to hangout and have a coffee or a drink during free happy hour every day. The hotel offers an Israeli style breakfast to guests and barista coffees and drinks are available to purchase at the bar. There is always complimentary fruit , biscuits, cakes available for guests Access from the airport: You can take taxi for around 180-200 ILS from Ben Gurion airport or you can chose to take an Airport train and bus for around 30 ILS but be prepared to walk and use a lot of steps and escalators Location: 7 mins walk to Hilton Beach and located just off Dizengoff street which is Tel Aviv’s upmarket eat street and offers heaps of boutique shopping . About 15 mins walk to the new Tel Aviv port Beaches: The Hilton Beach is your closest beach within 7 mins walk, there are a number of other beaches along side the Hilton Beach along the Tel Aviv promenade The Mediterranean ocean is beautiful without waves and great for swimming. Chairs and umbrellas are available to rent at most of the beaches . There number of eateries along the beaches to grab a coffee or some food Clientele: The hotel attracts couples, singles young and old and is GLBT+ welcoming .…
We fell in love with this boutique hotel, even though we only stayed one night. Sadly, we arrived late from a flight, but the manager greeted us in an upbeat manner, gave us a welcome drink (we missed the earlier happy hour), and helped us find a restaurant open late. Around the corner, there were a multitude of restaurants, and we settled on a wine bar that was excellent only two blocks away. The manager was also their designer, with fantastic touches in their elevator (even with a seat), the halls and rooms, and even their courtyard where you can take breakfast or cocktails. The courtyard is a masterpiece of design with her touches everywhere. It is also quiet given that the neighborhood is quite lively. We had a hurried breakfast before leaving but it was quite lovely. Given the manager's Italian background, the cappuccinos were excellent. One caution--the room was extremely small--we apparently had the smallest one and we would not book that again; other guests said their rooms were more spacious.…
We came here for a night in the city and were so pleased with everything. The excellent location, impeccable service and beautiful design. The place is clean, inviting and pleasant to spend time at - both in the public and private areas. Staff was professional and kind. Really liked the tall guy who managed our stay.. Around the hotel lots of cute places for drink and eat with the local folks, yet also had some wine at the hotel bar, and its recommended 👌
