Бронировали мы жилье за два месяца для 4 человек, за сутки до вылета я отправил Михе письмо, на которое получил ответ, что мы должны приехать на улицу Монтефиори вместо Шенкин. Мы приехали, но его там не было, на такси уехали на Шенкин и ждали Миху 40 минут. К нашему приезду в квартире было не убрано, везде грязь, белье грязное свалено в кучу, чистого вообще не было. Хотя мы предупреждали, что мы с маленьким ребенком. Нам пришлось ждать, пока он уберется в квартире, перестирает и привезет белье. Кроме этого в квартире заявлено о 4 спальных местах и написано, что это полноценные кровати, хотя на самом деле есть только одна двухспальная кровать. Не раскладывающийся диван, на котором не помещается человек лежа и раскладушка не могут считаться полноценными спальными местами. После наших претензий хозяин пообещал привезти нам вторую раскладушку и кастрюлю, привез через 2 суток. Кроме этого на сайте и на фотографиях указан ЖК телевизор, но его не было, сказал, что в ремонте и привез за 3 дня до нашего отъезда. но предупредил, что кабельное телевидение не подключено. Есть только Израильские каналы. Интернет беспроводной работал хорошо. Указанного в описании велосипеда нет. При переписке 2 месяца назад обещал нам детский стульчик, но об этом даже не вспомнил. Недостаточно посуды, нет даже элементарных чайных ложек, не в чем сварить ребенку кашу. Об указанной тишине ночью не может быть и речи, всю ночь за стеной лает собака, не считая уличных шумов, ведь рядом очень оживленный перекресток, через который до 12 часов ночи едут очень шумные автобусы, а в 5.30 начинают грохотать мусоросборочные машины. Вся мебель и бытовая техника в квартире имеют изрядную степень износа, ламинат на полу поцарапан, местами вздут от мытья водой, обивка одного из стульев про(website hidden)ена утюгом и прикрыта подушкой. В ванной комнате дуга для шторы душевой сломана и висит на скотче, вокруг поддона плесень, бегают ТАРАКАНЫ. В общем первое впечатление - это разочарование. Хотя на фотографиях мы видим именно эту квартиру, но мы не видим того, чего не хочет показывать Миха.
Сам город на понравился, следующий наш визит будет только не к Михе.
The apartment is in a great location if you like restaurants, bars, nightlife, and shops. The host, Mikha, is a very nice man offering to help out in any way possible. Mikha told me to come to the apartment anytime afer 2pm. I told him I was traveling all day so I wouldn't be there until later. He said no problem, just come anytime after 2pm. I wasn't sure what time we would be there so I asked if even 10pm was ok. He said, come whenever. When we arrived at 6pm, Mikha was cleaning the apartment. We felt as though we were interrupting him. After he left, we noticed how dirty the apartment was. A dirty band aid with hair in it, dusty tables and headboards, moldy shower, clumps of cat or dog hair on the floor in the living room. I messaged him saying that maybe he thought we would be there later and didn't have time to clean, but that the apartment was not clean. I asked if he would come the next day to clean. He agreed. He didn't come. The next day he said he didn't clean and he would come the next day. He didn't come. He asked me not to write a bad review for him, but we held up our end of the deal by paying for the apartment and not damaging anything. He didn't hold up his end of the deal by having a clean apartment for us to feel comfortable in. Cleanliness is very important for me and I want to be happy to come 'home' after a long day of travel. This was not the place.
Well, Alyssa gave the apartment the only not good review since I've started this listing. Her blatant inaccuracies and omissions of facts and ungratefulness for my help to her, may discredit her honesty, and suggest that she might be a dangerous guest to host.
1.: Alyssa came 4 hours earlier without notice(!) before we scheduled the check-in. Of course the apartment wasn't cleaned yet.
2.: I promised her I would come will clean more tomorrow, and I did come, and did clean, despite the apartment being full with her appliances.
3.: She was too rude to mention that not only was I *offering* help, but that in fact I spent all of my evening helping her to find a car rental that would be suitable for her special needs. On next day, when she needed to get back to Tel-Aviv from a distant town - 45 miles away, I took my car, went there, and gave her a ride.
4.: It is curious that Alyssa from all of my guests, has left the apartment in the most messiest state.
l´appartement se trouve dans un endroit magnifique! il est idéal pour un couple, pour une troisième personne, qui doit dormir dans le séjour ce n´est pas optimal. par contre le balcon sur la rue Sheinkin est génial. Malheureusement la propreté n´était pas le point fort...
Maintenant que l´on connait les inconvénients et les avantages, on pense nous allons essayer une autre fois chez Mikha.
The apartment is located right in the centre of Tel Aviv, with easy walking access to the beach, restaurants, nightlife, etc. The apartment is clean and spacious, perfect for short or extended stays. Mikha is quick at responding to questions and gave an excellent recommendation for a restaurant which proved to be one of our favourite on our trip. Highly recommended!
Convenient solution to stay in Tel Aviv in a cheap way! I didn't meet Mikha but he was really available through the phone. I would recommend it if you travel on budget. David
Great location & enjoyed sitting in the sun on the balcony. The flat's an excellent base for exploring Tel Aviv, as all the main areas of interest are in walking distance.
It's in a busy area so good for people watching, or a little noisy, depending on personal taste.
Mikha seemed keen for us to enjoy our stay. He provided fold-down beds for our children, booked us a taxi to the airport and bought us mineral water.
The flat was very much as advertised and we enjoyed our stay in it.
A great host. Was there to greet us when we arrived. A clean apartment with all the amenities you could need. It was also in a great location.
Mikha was a great host! The apt is perfectly located and has a lovely balcony. I would absolutely recommend it!
Mikha was very accommodating and helpful. This was a last minute booking and Mikha was good about getting things ready for us. Parking in nearby lot was going to cost more than expected, so he helped us with an alternative. Everything we needed was there and it was clean. Great location! Thank you, Mikha!
Unfortunately this flat is an error. Very dirty, never has cleaned. Flat has one double bed - in my opinion it is only for max 2 persons. The second 2 persons must sleep in the kitchen on camp-bed. Householder is nice at the beginning but punctuality is not his best point. When he told You that he came at 2 p.m., he will be at 4 p.m. - when You are in Tel Aviv two days it does matter 2 hours sitting and waiting for him. At the end - he take over than 100 Euro deposit (fortunately take by Airbnb so they returned it to me) and send me an e-mail when I was come back from trip that I broken his dirty old table and stole his pearls (!!!) from balcony :) :) no comments at all
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
