If you are look for cheaper accommodation near the Ein Bokek resort on the Dead Sea, this can be an option, especially for a family of four or five.
Let there be no misunderstandings: Neve Zohar is not Ein Bokek, it is a low-middle class residential area just south of the resort. "Zimmer Dora" is an apartment in this residential area. There are two options: a double room with kitchenette and a family suite with kitchenette. We were a group of five, and we stayed in the family suite: one bedroom with a double bed, and a living room with a pullout-bed-sofa for two and another sofa for one.
The apartment was clean, the bathroom-shower modern and in good working order, the kitchenette adequate, and there is also a pleasant yard at the entrance, with a BBQ for those interested. The TV was modern, with a wide selection of channels. The air-condition worked fine.
Although the apartment is located 2 minutes from the shore, there is no beach in Neve Zohar (nearby Ein Bokek has a public beach and several private beaches).
Breakfast is not served in Zimmer Dora; the proprietor will give you a discount coupon for a restaurant in Ein Bokek.
Zimmer Dora is a fine place to stay overnight when traveling to the Dead Sea on a budget, but do not expect anything else but a place to sleep.
We paid NIS 750 for 5 adults in the family suite.
