I like to feel a tourist in my own home town; so I was glad to check-in LINK Hotel & Hub: a new brand of Dan Hotels that is offering an innovative concept
In what way the Link is innovative?
The design perception skipped many of the characteristics of an ordinary hotel and its obvious; there are 3 NO issues:
No front desk
No cash payments
But big yes-to a comprehensive application that operate your stay from the check-in and out; an option to order food and drinks and also a variety of functions in the room: from the option to open it, play the TV, activate the AC and adjust the light and atmosphere.
There is also-a versatile young service team that is available 24/7
After meeting - my sweet room one of 94 rooms-in 4 categories; i did my small sniffing and found some gadgets that I appreciate-like 2 pairs of colorful socks and black slippers; quite a change from the usual white borring ones
I felt hungry - so i took the elveator to minus one floor; there is a restaurant that serves fresh light meals. i choose the ceaser salad with salmon slices that was delicious
I couldn’t wait -till i came down again; with my laptop to the working area. the new traditional lobby at any hotel became here a HUB which is a shared space with work desks, meeting rooms of different sizes, a pool table and board games
I loved- the artistic approach of the hotel: above my bed their was a display of Graffiti that reflects the real Link of the hotel to: street art
Each floor out of the 8 :is dedicated to another street artist and all the works are offered for purchase
Even in the elevators; there is a unique graffiti atmosphere and also in the fitness complex, that is open all day around
Near the Spa and fitness area- there is a service room with lockers for guests arriving before check-in or want to stay after check-out, self-service washing machines; dryers and vending machines with cargo adapters, flip-flops and shaving kits

At Night-the HUB became a contemporary recreation and meeting area, including the use of the display tools for watching movies; listening to music and enjoying the open kitchen and beverage bar
There is also an espresso bar called "LinkCafe"; that serves some good pastries
Batman-Daniel Siboni, the main art curator of the Link Hotel, created along with leading street artists; a unique series of works which gives an interpretation of the favorite superhero Batman, who celebrates 80 years of an icon
