The Maxim Hotel
Historical Traveler Reviews Lotus Deluxe Hotel Agra
Buchen Sie ein Doppelzimmer
Ich habe sowohl in einem Einzel- als auch in einem Doppelzimmer übernachtet und der Aufpreis war es auf jedem Fall wert. Das Einzelzimmer war sehr klein und hatte ein winziges Badezimmer - es gab kaum Platz für eine Person, aber für eine Nacht war es in Ordnung. Das Doppelzimmer war sehr großräumig und hatte ein angenehmes Badezimmer. Ich kann den anderen Gästekommentaren zustimmen, tolle Lage und Service (Aufzug war winzig). Wenn man am Sar-El Programm teilnimmt, bekommt man 10 % Ermäßigung.
Reserva la habitación doble
Me hospedé en una habitación individual y una doble, y la tarifa extra valió la pena. La habitación individual era muy pequeña, y tenía un baño pequeño. Casi no había campo para una persona, pero estuvo bien para una noche. La habitación doble era amplia con un baño completo. Los otros comentarios son correctos. La ubicación y el servicio es estupendo. El ascensor es pequeño. Si haces Sar-El, te ofrecerán un descuento de 10%.
Get the double room
Stayed in both a Single room and a Double and the extra charge was well worth it. Single room very small with tiny bathroom - barely room for 1 person but ok for 1 night. Double room was spacious with full-sized bathroom. Other comments are accurate - great location and service (lift is tiny). If doing Sar-El they will offer 10% discount
Qualité moyenne sur la plage
L'Hotel Maxim est un hôtel modeste donnant sur la plage de l'autre côté de la rue Hayarkon, dans le centre-ville de Tel Aviv. Les chambres sont petites et simples, mais confortables. Le tarif est plus que raisonnable vu la situation. Le personnel de l'hôtel est dans l'ensemble plutôt serviable et bien informé et nous ont rendu notre séjour de quinze jours très confortable. Le petit déjeuner est un bon petit déjeuner complet israélien, plein de salades, ainsi que des oeufs, des céréales et du pain. Si vous n'êtes pas à la recherche d'un hôtel de luxe, c'est un très bon choix à Tel Aviv. Nous y reviendrions.
Plus que raisonnable vu le prix
L'hôtel Maxim a des chambres et du mobilier défraîchis, mais la situation et le tarif compensent le tout. C'était en soi très agréable - pas juste le petit déjeuner, et mais aussi le thé à 17h avec des cakes inclus dans le prix. Néanmoins, il y a quelque chose à prendre en considération dans les prochains mois. J'étais là-bas en mars-avril 2006, et au dernier jour de mon séjour, ils ont commencé à détruire un vieil immeuble, assez proche de l'hôtel et face aux chambres qui n'avaient pas vue sur la mer. Etant donné qu'une construction fera suite à cette démolition, il risque d'y avoir des ennuis temporaires causés par le bruit et la poussière pour environ la moitié des chambres de l'hôtel.
Cake and tea, great locale
The Maxim Hotel is a great little hotel on Hayarkon street in Tel AViv. Hayarkon is one of the main streets just off of Tel Aviv Beach. Accomodation is not very difficult at all to find in Tel Aviv, but the maxim hotel is a reasonably cheap price, and included in the accomodation fee is a fabulous breakfast of salads, eggs, bread, tea, coffee, fruit, yogurt, cheeses etc. as well, every day at about 5 o clock, they set up tea and cake! On Shavuot- a Jewish holiday- we even got chesecake and cheese pastries, very delicious.... The rooms are tidy and there are TVs and air conditioning. A downside to this hotel, however, was the fact that there was only ever one receptionist working at a time and they seemed to always be busy and not that friendly.. As well, they do not allow guests up into the rooms, that is their policy i suppose.
They lock the front entrance and there is a receptionist 24/7 who will let you in if you are a partier that stays up late to enjoy Tel aviv night life- hence- it is quite safe there.
Best deal for email access
Maxim will suit those who don't need luxury, but appreciate friendly staff, good location and clean surroundings. Our room was small, as were the beds, but well air-conditioned and clean. You couldn't ask for a better location; just across a small park from the boardwalk and the sea. There is only room for about 10 cars in the hotel lot, so it's first come, first served, but the hotel has an arrangement with an underground secure lot just across the street, and you can park there for a reduced price. Buzz is an internet cafe about a half block away on the boardwalk, and as well, you can use a computer in Maxim's lobby as much as you want over a 24 hour period for only 15 shekels, which is the best price we found on the whole trip. Alex and Shuly at the desk were very helpful -- even let us put our cold packs in the kitchen freezer so when we were gone for the day and planned to picnic, our drinks and cheese etc. stayed cool. There are rooms with small fridges, but none available when we were there; next time we'll book a room with a fridge. And we surely would go back there again.
More than reasonable for the price
Maxim has rather tired rooms and furniture, but the location and the price make up for that. It has a nice treat iof its own -- not just breakfast, but also 5 o'clock tea with cakes is included in the price. However, there may be an issue to consider for the next few months: I was there in March-April 2006, and on the last day of my stay they started to demolish an old building which most of the hotel's non-sea-view windows face, quite close to the hotel. Assuming the demolition will be followed by construction, there may be a temporary problem with noise and dust for about half of the hotel's rooms.
A real find in Tel Aviv
Where else can you get a room with a view...across from the beach,...
at a price that leaves you enough money for the great restaurants...
... all within walking distance?
This is a no-frills hotel with terrific views at a charge of an extra $10 day. But at $60/day for a single and $90/day for a couple, its quite a bargain!
Plus you get free underground parking, a good breakfast to start the day and some super warm folks running the place!
Modest Quality on the Beach
The Hotel Maxim is a modest hotel across Hayarkon Street from the beach in the center of Tel Aviv. The rooms are small and simply furnished, but comfortable. The price is more than reasonable for the location. The hotel staff is generally helpful and well-informed and assisted in making our two week stay very comfortable. The breakfast is a good full Israeli breakfast, lots of salads along with eggs, cereals, and breads. If you are not looking for hotel luxury, this is a very good choice in Tel Aviv. We will stay there again.
