The hotel I stayed in is not the more well know Alef in the old Jewish part of town. But the Alef 2 which is a 5 minute walk to the Jewish section, and 10 minutes to the main Market Square. The location is great, and sits on a quiet little street.
The city does not have a huge selection of chain hotels, except Sheraton, Radisson, and Holiday Inn. If you want to stay close to Market Square you have many choices including all of the above mentioned, and the Hotel Royal. If you want to stay in the old Jewish section (my favorite) of town Hotel Ester is a 3-star with a great location.
Unique Quality: The room was very spartan and felt almost more like a dorm room than a hotel room. The bed was not very comfortable. The sheets didn't feel dirty, but not clean either.
The staff of the hotel were super nice and friendly. A nice breakfast buffe is included in the price. If you need an important wakeup call, you better bring an alarm. Twice I ordered wakeup calls and didn't get them.
The public areas of the hotel are really nice. The lobby is very unique and filled with art work, as are the staircases. The huge breakfast room is filled with eclectic prewar WW2 Jewish pieces that transports you back in time.
