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.

We stayed for two nights in the hotel and had a great stay. The hotel is located a minute from beach and to many restaurants and shops. The staff were extremely friendly and the rooms very clean. They roof top has a great view of the whole area, though it is on the 7th floor.

Wonderful gem in the heart of the city! Delicious food, quaint rooms with delicious dates provided to snack on, bookshelves of books to borrow, local artisan jewelry, local CDs and books with all the flavor of Israel's heritage and legacy from yesterday and today. The owners do a terrific job!

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
