The hotel is good and affordable. It is about a minute or two walking distance from the beach. It's an ideal location for solo travelers or for family vacation. Plenty of restaurants and shops abound around the hotel. Famous markets like the Carmel Market is just a walking distance from the hotel (about ten minutes or so). From the hotel, I walked to Jaffa. It took me about 30 minutes, though I could have taken a bus, I chose to walk. The view on the way was lovely and the weather was very conducive. Check-in into the hotel was straight forward. Breakfast was not bad. Complimentary drinks and snacks were offered during the day. This is not a bad hotel.
