Quintessential Mediterranean style and water views can be had at this boutique beachfront property near Tel Aviv Port. Once the Canadian Embassy, the Melody Hotel - An Atlas Boutique Hotel has a position too good to waste on office space, right next to the Hilton and Independence Park. It's a ten-minute walk to the new Port area from here and a few minute's walk down to the beach and the promenade. Chic and minimal in design, rooms at the Melody offer LCD TV and DVD player, free wifi, fridge and a kettle for hot drinks; complimentary snacks are available all day from the lobby bar and in the summer, the funky top floor terrace offers beautiful sunset views across city and sea. Nearby, guests can wander over to the Old Port for a spot of shopping or hire bikes from reception and cycle up to the Hayarkon River.
