Your own private studio at a great all inclusive price. A fantastic location near the heart of Tel Aviv, just 3 minutes’ walk from the SUZANNE DELLAL Centre of NEVE TZEDEK and 10 minutes to the beach or Rothschild.
We have 3 studios here, so if this one is not available, you can try the others which you can see by clicking on our profile. The studios are private and fully self-contained, and have been recently refurbished to give a bright and homely atmosphere. They are all comfortable and spacious with high ceilings and very clean with fresh sheets and bath towels. Each studio has its own kitchen and bathroom, and free WiFi.
Based in a period building in the Florentine district of Tel Aviv it is within easy walking distance to the best attractions of this exciting city – the beach, Neve Tzedek, and Rothschild Boulevard. The building itself is authentic, but not in a good state of repair, but our studios within are very clean, modernized and comfortable, and the area itself is very safe.
There is a lot to see and do in Florentine where we are, and the surrounding areas, and all within walking distance.
FLORENTINE is the fun neighborhood of Tel Aviv, old, shabby and authentic, full of historic buildings and Bauhaus architecture, cafes, bars, restaurants and ice cream parlors. Most of these stay open till the early hours so the area is popular with the young Tel Avivians. During the day there is market style shopping in the neighboring Levinski Street for groceries, nuts and spices and many other goods at local prices, popular with the old Tel Avivians.
The BEACH is just a 10 minute walk away. This is at the south of the 5km stretch of the Tel Aviv beaches and they tend to be quieter compared to the central or northern beaches, and are ideal for a morning walk and dip into the Mediterranean, followed by breakfast by the sea with views to old Jaffa to the south and modern Tel Aviv to the north.
NEVE TZEDEK is Tel Aviv’s oldest quarter, from whence the rest of Tel Aviv branched out. It is over 120 years old and is only a 3 minutes’ walk. Today it has become an affluent area, full of galleries, boutiques, street cafes and restaurants, but still retains many of its original features and character. Next to it is the historic Jaffa train station (Hatachana) which was recently renovated into a glorious piazza with bars, restaurants and exclusive shopping.
ROTHCHILD BOULEVARD is 10 minutes by foot. This is the real heart of Tel Aviv and can be enjoyed pretty much 24 hours a day. You can experience beautiful surroundings in a mix of old Bauhaus and eclectic buildings with new high tech glass skyscrapers. It is a lively place, buzzing with people of all ages taking in the cafes and restaurants, or just strolling along the middle of the tree lined street at all hours, day and night.
OLD JAFFA is a 10 minutes’ walk and apart from the old city, it has a vibrant flea market so is definitely worth a visit. In the night, the Jaffa Flee Market transforms into a popular nightspot. The Jaffa port is also a lively spot, both day and night.
PRICES are set to provide excellent value for staying in a classic, clean and comfortable self-contained studio in the perfect location to enjoy Tel Aviv to the full with no need to get on the bus or in a taxi. There are also further discounts for weekly or monthly stays.
As for SERVICE, we are always happy to help with advice or recommendations for places to go, or for dining. The area has unrestricted free street parking. There is no TV, so nothing to distract you from having real fun. Free internet with WiFi is provided so you can stay in touch with the world. Check in and out times are flexible. Very late or early arrivals are ok with us. And if you have any special needs, feel free to ask and we will try our best.

Florentine itself is great fun, and very authentic, and open 247. Each surrounding district has its unique character and can be experienced within easy walking distance. Together they make up the best of Tel Aviv.
There are a couple of bus routes in the nearby main street. Alenby St which is 10 minutes' walk has most of the bus routes of Tel Aviv passing through.

Vi upplevde våra 8 dagar positivt. Lägenheten är ren, tyst och utrustad med vad som behövs för att laga sin frukost. Sängarna är sköna. Fri parkering på gatorna i området även om det vissa tider kan vara ganska fullparkerat. Läget är bra med närhet till bra restauranger. Benny var hjälpsam med praktiska råd. Det som saknades var möjligen läslampa för övre sängen och städningen av trappan i entrén, som drar ned det första intrycket. Som helhet kan vi rekommendera lägenheten.
Bennys Studio ist genial gelegen, in 10min ist man am Meer, in Old Jaffa und in der Allenbystreet. Nicht vom kargen Hauseingang abschrecken lassen, das Studio ist hell, freundlich und geräumig. Wir haben die Zeit dort sehr genossen. Benny war sehr hilfsbereit und entspannt. Er wohnt gleich um die Ecke. Thank you!!!
The appartment was just as described - clean and cosy inside, nice and modern - and the location was excellent, with Jaffa an easy stroll and Neve Tzedek and Rothschild Blvd. literally round the corner. You are also right in Florentin, famed for cool bars and gaffiti - not the smartest neighbourhood, but cool. Think Brixton or Shorditch in London. Benny was very responsive to our queries. All in all, a really good trip.
Apartment was clean and really nice. Benny just wants the best for his guests. Thank you Benny!
The apartment is cozy, nice and clean. We liked our stay in it!
Everything is welcoming, and Benny is a nice host. The walk to sea is 10-minute walk and there are a lot of cafes not far away.
The only small problem is the area is quite strange, the street has an old view. But the appartment is really nice.
The street is not so nice but very well located. Next to clubs and restaurants of Florentine. The appartment is nice and clean, sunny and confortable.
Overall, it was a decent stay, but there were some annoying glitches.
First, the good stuff:
1) It's a nice room.
2) The neighborhood is fantastic.
3) Benny is very helpful.
1) The room is not *quite* as light and airy as in the picture - a bit more worn down.
2) Benny didn't leave the key where he said he'd leave it - fortunately, he was easy to contact by phone and came by within 15 min to let us into the room and give us a key.
3) He also forgot to give us bath towels, though he did give us a good solution, which was to take them from the studio across the hall.
4) The heater didn't work. Benny gave us a space heater, which we appreciated, but it didn't do much to heat the room.
5) The mattress was much too soft for our liking - our backs were both pretty messed up sleeping on it.
6) The dishes were cleaned - but not clean. We had to reclean several of them before using them.
7) The hot water kettle was filled with some water with nasty white stuff in it.
If the review were based on the quality of the room and neighborhood alone, I would have given a solid 4 stars, with the main issue being that the room isn't quite as nice as it looks in the pictures - but it is a very good price and a great neighborhood.
So, hopefully Benny will up his game a bit and make sure things are in working order before each guests arrives.
Aaron. Thanks for the feedback, and sorry for the mistakes with the key and towels, and that the heater failed. To be fair with the studio, you happened to stay during the stormiest season Tel Aviv has had since last winter. During more typical weather conditions, the room is very bright.
