Gilgal

Tel Aviv, Israel

The hotel

For intimate service in a quiet setting just a flip-flop's throw from the beach and treasures of Tel Aviv, look no further than the Gilgal Hotel. It's boutique and quirky, with inspirational quotes and biblical artwork lining the walls. And what better way to start your day here than with a tasty breakfast in the glass-walled rooftop dining area. Choose to eat out on the terrace while taking in the views of the city and sea before you head out – it's definitely a must-do.

The Gilgal is like an oasis is busy Tel Aviv. You are greeted by a pleasant receptionist & an inviting library. 24 hr. snack bar on main floor. Very clean if somewhat smallish rooms with a Nespresso machine-yay! Beat food we had in our two weeks in the Midfle East

Stay only one night! All was ok! Very good that it is possible to stay in lobby in the evening for a drink. Beach is very near, only 3 minutes to go. Hear car noise through window. Room could be little greater

Study trip to Israel. Our friends had some questionable experience with blood trops on bed. Good that our room was without carpet. Dinner has not been of very good quality. Sea view limited. For one or two nights still acceptable.
