Renovated Bauhaus Apartment with Original Art Deco Details

Bedrooms 2
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6-7)

The perfect location to explore Tel Aviv and to relax from travel in Israel.

We are a 3 minute walk to the shops, restaurants and markets of Dizengoff Circle and 6 minutes to the beach. Although it is in a fantastic central location, the building is in a low traffic area and is significantly quieter than the typical noisy streets of the busy hotels.

This renovated apartment retains much of its original 1930's Art Deco character in its tiles, chandeliers and some furniture pieces. Is is one flight up in an International Style (Bauhaus) walk up building.

The salon has original 30's deco side tables, bookcase, chandelier and tiles. There is a sofa and two easy chairs. The sofa pulls out into a Queen sized bed. There is also a 42' LCD Satellite TV with a multi region DVD player.

The dining room has a 30's dining room table that seats 6 (with original chairs) and pulls out to seat 10. The sofa pulls out into two single beds that can be pushed together.

(Each of the salon and the dining room have doors that close allowing for privacy when they are converted to bedrooms.)

The patio has a cafe table and four chairs perfect for morning or afternoon tea and biscuits.

About The Owner

We liked visiting Israel so much, we moved here with our family! This building has been in our family since my grandfather built it in the 30's. (On the original maps of Tel Aviv from the 30's our street was the last street before the beach!)

The Owner purchased this apartment in 1934

Fabulous flat

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in this flat was perfect. Owner was easy to work with & apt. Overseer was wonderful. No picture can convey charm of apt. Location is close to good dining, good shopping, transportation, fabulous beach, tourist office and everything & anything you want. Location is fewer than 5 minutes to Ben Yehuda yet there is no traffic on this narrow street. Garbage trucks are loud on pic-up day. Kitchen is modern and Bosch fridge is new. Property was very clean and east to keep clean. Loved it. Little parking but we had no car.

Excellent opportunity

  • 5 of 5

My 16 year old son and I just got back from five months in Tel Aviv. We were more than lucky to have found this apartment. the apartment is roomy, quaint, and very functional. The location is ideal. You can walk everywhere, no need for a car at all. We felt completely at home. Both Ron the owner (and Paula the house cleaner) who manage the apartment were very friendly and most helpful. We did not have to worry at all about getting quick and accurate help from learning the small things in the apartment to where to go and how to get things done. If you are planning to spend time in Tel Aviv from a week or as we did to five months you will be fortunate if this apartment is available. We hope to return.

Bauhaus in Tel Aviv

  • 4 of 5

I loved spending time at the apartment on Mendele, the location is incomparable. 10 minutes or less in any direction and I'm on the beach, in a great little bistro en route to the shuk or the buzz on Dizengoff. I very much enjoyed staying in a piece of living history, knowing the apartment was built by the owners grandfather somehow made this experience even more special. We enjoyed all the mod cons such as washer dryer etc and then walked outside and looked up at a Bauhaus beauty! The owners pre arrival manual was a very useful document for which we were especially grateful as we were able to hit the ground running and use internet immediately and find all of the info required to communicate with my office. The cleaning person was most helpful and efficient , So all in all I'd be happy to recommend a stay at Medele 26

photos missing

  • 1 of 5

Our stay was cut short by the poor state of the appartment, updating bedding, pillows, towels, etc. would help. Also we were disappointed by the size and look of the bathroom (there are no pictures posted on the website so no way too know BEFORE you get inside the appartment.). Kitchen is very small too.

Owner's Response: Oh Poppycock and Fiddlesticks! (to be polite)! Sigh. Where do I begin? The bathroom is indeed as described; full bathtub w. shower, full size vanity and medicine cabinet, toilet and a stackable washer dryer. I have no idea how large a bathroom they expected (pictures available), but perhaps it was their intention to sleep their family in the bathtub. These guests assumed the kitchen was eat in, and were disappointed to discover it was a galley kitchen. There are two photos of the kitchen (more available), including a bar for 2 or 3 (the photo is on this site) to eat in the kitchen. There is a closet full of fresh and clean linens, summer, fall and winter and the pillows are new from earlier this year.(Pictures available) So, here are the other complaints they had: These guests did not know how to operate our plumbing to divert from bath to shower and decided our shower did not function correctly. (We have now included a note on this with a picture in the 5 page apartment users manual for future guests just in case.) Three of the Art Deco tiles (from 1930, the same tiles are on display in the City of Tel Aviv Museum) in the apartment have bleached over the years. Accordingly, this made our floor unacceptable. (We have also included a note on this in the manual for future guests.) The apartment's internal doors are the original 1930's Bauhaus doors. This made them unacceptable. (Seriously, this was one of their complaints. I couldn't make this kind of nonsense up if I tried.) In a corner of a hallway, 6' (2m) up near the ceiling, they discovered a chip of paint and plaster the size of a quarter that had been knocked off the wall (immediately remedied). This made our apartment "full of holes". And on and on ... in other words, "Give us all our money back or else!" Respectfully we responded to each and every one of their issues, ridiculous or otherwise and documented each issue with pictures and video. As a result, these "guests" backed off the rest of their claims and the result is the comments they left above. ( Oh, by the way, they left owing us money.) Please see the reviews above and below that speak to the quality of care we take of both our apartments (our other VRBO is # 283643) and our guests. And please feel free to contact me with any additional photo's you may require or questions you want answered. We look forward to hosting you! Ron.

great location

very accommodating owner and onsite manager

very good internet

apt could be improved by updating bedding, pillows, towels, etc and the bathroom

our experience was likely influenced by the unusually cold weather

Owner's Response: Yes indeed you had the coldest and wettest weather Israel and Tel Aviv have had in the past 25 years! (Then again, thanks for bringing all this rain with you, as an arid country we appreciate every single drop!) Re. the bedding: There were more linens etc. in another closet in the second apartment and of course we would have been happy to provide them if you had requested such. Of note, some guests are not aware that most towels and linens are sun dried in Israel and therefore not as "fluffy". This is a healthier way of treating fabric (the sun's UV rays are also quite cleansing) and a concerted effort to reduce greenhouse gases. I hope you were able to get out into the countryside to see the entire region in bloom, including the desert due to the prolonged rainfall. Looking forward to seeing you return in warmer weather!
