A short stroll from Bograshov Beach and Tel Aviv’s bustling Carmel Market, the Embassy Hotel is a boutique property with a retro vibe. The public spaces feature an eclectic mix of 1950s paraphernalia (old fashioned telephones, a vintage moped) alongside plush leather armchairs and a faux cobblestone floor. The 23 guestrooms are decked out with Midcentury furniture and beds dotted with brightly colored pillows and throws. Patterned carpets add even more color. Opt for a Suite and you’ll get your own kitchenette, while some Superior Rooms offer partial views of the Mediterranean. Communal areas include the breakfast room, with its funky rainbow-colored chairs, and a guest lounge that serves free tea, coffee and snacks throughout the day.
In the Area
Lively Carmel Market is a 15-minute walk from the hotel. Head there to pick up souvenirs or taste your way around the excellent street food stalls. Design fans should check out Bialik Street’s Bauhaus buildings; the Beit Rubin Museum is a particular highlight. For a culture fix head to the cutting-edge Museum of Art; afterward try traditional Israeli cuisine in the informal Dining Hall restaurant. Closer to home, Bograshov Beach is practically opposite the hotel.
How to Get There
On our trip my girlfriends and I rated here and loved this hotel. They gave us a free upgrade, there was free champagne in the afternoons with snacks and fruit, and a bottle of welcome champagne in our rooms. The art work in the hotel was funky and modern. We loved it. The walking distance to the restaurants and the beach were short and easy. We loved our stay!
This hotel is located about 100m away from the beach. However, this is by far the worst hotel I have been to in Israel.
Parking is very inconvenient, so if you have a rental car you must park at the parking lot next to the hotel, which is a tiny parking lot and hard to find parking, not to mention that you have to pay like $20 a day for it which is not included with your hotel stay.
Elevator is very tiny, and the front desk are not very helpful when it comes to bringing in luggage up to the room. No one to help and since the elevator is tiny, it’s a hassle trying to get luggage up to the room. The elevator is so small that it won’t fit the luggage cart and 1 more person. So you have to send the cart up the elevator by itself and go up the stairs to meet it. Oh, you have to do the same going down.
The room is not outdated, although it’s big enough, the furniture is not maintained. Also found hair on the bed when I initially checked in. The carpet is very dirty in the room and the lobby area on the second floor.
The noise is loud in the room, you can hear people talking in the street, cars driving by, and other noise.
The breakfast is not what you would expect given that I have stayed at a number of other hotels throughout my trip in Israel. It’s a tiny bar with mostly cheese on it. Nothing on the bar is fresh.
For the daily rate, I would not recommend anyone to stay at this hotel unless you are highly desperate.
We were a group of students traveling in Israel.
This place was ideal for us to stay at in Tel Aviv, only a couple of minutes walk from every place you’d wanna go to, bars, beach, convenience stores etc..
Good comfortable and clean!
The room was very clean and comfortable with nice bathroom and spacious shower. Staff was kind and helpful. Location is great - 100 m from the beach. Breakfasts were tasty. There is also a nice lobby with snacks and beverages.
What I loved most was the understanding and kindness of the staff with travelers who've lost credit cards, don't have immediate cash at check-in, etc. And the breakfasts are a buffet of the best cheeses, spreads, juices, eggs, cereals, breads, tuna, etc, and the chef will make special orders. Clean, neat, smells good, too!
