Let me start by saying, the building is old, but this is one of those perfect examples where the outside does not match the inside, once you step in the door you feel that the hosts have been thinking of you. Hot water, TV, lots of beds, toys, everything a family could want to feel at home. It is just a few steps away from a really nice kid friendly park, a zoo, and an art museum... You can do shopping walking down Borochov st. at the SuperCity Mart. You have bus stops really close to go to Jerusalem, with only one stop (line 426), and also to visit Tel Aviv and Yaffo (line 82).
You can even pass quarantine here, I am sure hosts could supply the apt.
In a few words, you want the full experience, this is the place in Petah Tikva.
This is an older building but the apartment is clean and spacious. The hosts were exceptional, responding to concerns immediately and they really seemed to want us to enjoy our stay. If what you are looking for is a clean place to eat and sleep and a reasonable price this apartment would be hard to beat. If it was available we would definitely stay there again.
