“The Real Tel Aviv feeling - Beach & Bars”
Dirk H Frankfurt, Germany TripAdvisor, November 23, 2012
Hotel Villa Vilina is in Neve Tzedek, the beating heart of Tel Aviv - conveniently close to the buzzling end of Rothschild Avenue with countless bars, restaurants, clubs - at just 5-10 minutes walk away from Tel Aviv's splendid beach. The roof apartment where we stayed has an amazing view to the ocean and skyline and oldest Part of Tel Aviv. Inside is good, convenient, basic and clean. Superb terrace - and the neighborhood directly in Shabazi Street hip and cool.
All in All would go there again any time! Vilina is a superb host!!! Thank you for a wonderful time!

We had a wonderful stay here. Villa Vilina Hotel a is charming and Vilina (the owner) was very helpful and accommodating. Newly renovated bathroom a big plus. Bright and sunny main room with a quiet back bedroom. The pull-out futon in the living room was quite hard - some people like this, some don't. We were 4 adults sharing the space, but it is ideal for a couple or 2 friends sharing the bedroom. The location is amazing - top of Shabazithe main street in Neve Tzedek. Close to cafes, shopping, great wine bar, restaurants, etc. Hotels in this area are $300-400/night for less room and no kitchen, etc. A great spot!

It is a charming unpretentious holiday let, a modernised apartment in an old building with use of a very large roof terrace with views all over Tel Aviv.The situation is perfect if you want to experience trendy Neve Tsedek whilst being in walking distance of the Carmel Market
and not far from the beach. A fabulous "Place For Meat" restaurant is next door.

I was in Villa Vilina for almost 2 weeks- and it was great!
A very nice appartment, great bathroom and a nice garden to sit outside and drink something. Vilina was there to give tips where to go and what to do. From there the beach, the market, shops, restaurants and club are very near. We did all by foot.
I really can recomand Vilinas Villa!!
Thanks a lot,
see you again for sure!

Because of a snow storm in Jerusalem (really), we ended up in Tel Aviv for an unexpected week. Dorit made us welcome in one apartment after another; we got to stay in three of her six apartments. Each was distinct in style. Each was comfortable and had everything we needed from fresh bed linens to kitchen items. The location is perfect -- in the middle of history between Jaffa and the earliest Tel Aviv neighborhoods, near the shore, near the Carmel market, and right smack in the on-trend Neve Tzedek.

What a wonderful stay I had in villa Villa vilina hotel in Neve Tzedek!
Having an apartment on this trip made it all the more special - especially being in such a superb location!
Vilina and I communicated easily by email before I arrived to arrange how to meet when I got there, and it went more smoothly than some hotel
check-in's I've had! Apart from the fact that it rained for half my stay in Israel, having such a comfy place to stay made peering out into the storm not so bad! I'll be going back to Israel again and hope to stay there again!

We very enjoyed our stay in Tel Aviv and thats also because we had this lovely Apartment from Hotel Vila Vilina in the middle of Neve Tzedek. Surrounded by nice little Cafés and Shops it's the perfect place to be and discover Tel Aviv.The bedroom and living room where not very spacious but we hadeverything we needed even a fully equipped kitchen. A big bonus is the shared roof terrace - just amazing and with a great view.
“A perfect relaxing holiday”

We had a wonderful time in Tel Aviv staying at Hotel Villa Vilina in Neve Tzedek. We stayed at the appartment on top of the roof. Great view to the ocean with the skyscrapers in the back. Spacious apartment, centrally located and lovely Vilina. Felt very much at home. Our favourite was the roof terrace. Perfect to watch the sun set with a glas of wine. Vilina is a lovely host and we found the location very central and ideal for trips discovering the city. Of course it is not silent as in the desert, but you are in the middle of the city and there I can not expect that. For us it was not noisy for a central located place.

Neve Tzedek is one of the most beautiful and central places in Tel-Aviv and we were very happy to find accommodation there that also suit our budget.
The room we booked at Villa Vilina was very spacious with high ceiling and designed in a beautiful way. Practically we had everything we needed. The Internet worked well and we felt like in an apartment, where we could take care of ourself.
The Roof Top Terrace was a gift since we were upgraded from the first floor apartment we originally booked. We were very happy about it,since March in Israel is very Sunny and warm and we enjoyed sitting outside taking pictures at sunset, and just to RELAX.
A Tip: We have booked the apartment through booking.com, at a last minute deal in a good price but if you book in advanced, you can ask for prices and book an apartment also directly from Villa Vilina. You may find it cheaper if you choose the non refundable payment option.
"Amazing Experience at Villa Vilina"
Review on Tripadvisor.com November 21,2012 by Sgoldfar from Brooklyn New York
My boyfriend and I spent 7 nights at Villa Vilina Hotel this past November. We stayed in the apartment on the ground floor. This apartment is the perfect size for a couple. It had everything we needed to make us comfortable, including a kitchen where we could store our groceries we bought at Carmel Market, and a stove top to cook. The living room is great for relaxing and watching TV, and the bedroom has a queen-sized bed.
It was clean and furnished nicely. It was exactly what we were looking for. Nothing too over the top, but a perfect place to make your temporary home without feeling like you are staying in a hotel.
The thing we loved most about staying at Villa Vilina was the location. Neve Tzedek is an up-and-coming area that has tons of coffee shops, restaurants, bars, and art galleries. It is awesome for any age. It is a little ways away from the the center of town, which was nice.At the same time you are walking distance from Carmel Market, Jaffa, the beach, and much much more. We both love walking, so would walk everyday to the beach and up and down the boardwalk. Villa Vilina also has a lovely roof deck (see pic attached) where you can relax, drink wine, and hang out with Vilina's cat :)
Vilina is also very nice. She lives on the top floor so she is always around to answer any questions.
I had such a great time, and can't wait to go back! I would definitely recommend staying there to anyone!!!!

“Something real special”

This is just a wonderful place. Vilina, the Landlady, is a very nice and easy going woman who is always happy to help with questions.
We were lucky to spend 9 days in the smaller rooftop apartment in the Villa Vilina hotel in Neve Tzedek. We were three guys and - unlike many hotel rooms, In Villa Vilina Hotel, even the small apartment was spacious enough for triple accommodation of us three friends.
The whole estate has a very private character, and we (who already know Tel Aviv very well) really felt here like local people who happen to live in one of the coziest areas of this city. The house is quite old (probably from before the foundation of Tel Aviv in 1909), and it shows some admirable patina. Nevertheless the modern technical equipment (from the shower through the kitchen to TV and free internet) is totally up to date.
The several, all free accessible roof terraces offer a stunning view of the city and the sea, plus some nice breezes which you may miss so often down in the streets. One other advantage is that this place is far enough away from any traffic that – compared to other venues in this city – it appears like a calm oasis.

It's the third time that I will now stay at Villa Vilina and the hospitality of the owner and the uncomplicated way everything is dealt quickly made me feel like staying at home away from home. Appartments are clean and nicely furbished and whenever there is an issue Vilina is ready to help. Rooftop terrace is excellent!
Just perfect is the location: all hip bars and restaurants of Neve Tzedek are basically a few steps away, in 100 m there's a supermarket, in 200 m the beach. All other important spots in TLV are reachable on food (Carmel Market, Dizengoff Center, Yafo etc.) and around the corner at the Migdal Shalom Meir tower you always find a taxi in no time.
