Areas in Tel AvivHi, I'm staying in TA for 2 nights and I'm trying to get a sense of where to find a place to stay. I want to be relatively centrally located, but perhaps in a more relaxing/peaceful part of the center that's still convenient to move around quickly. Any areas come to mind? Neve Tzedek and Florentin keep coming up, but I really don't know.
If these are the key spots, are there any specific areas or intersections to try to get close to within these districts?
Thanks for your time.

1Tel Aviv is a small city, and nearly everything is within walking distance. That makes your location less of an issue.
I'd concentrate on trying and find a specific hotel you like, that has vacancies, and less so a neighborhood, as they all have their advantages and disadvantages.
Take into consideration proximity to the beach, for example...
As for neighborhoods - Neve Tzedek is expensive and atmospheric. Shabazi is the main commercial street, with the Susan Dallal Performing Arts Center at the western end.
Florentine is a lot younger and hipper, more urban. The neighborhood's epicenter is the commercial Florentine Street.
The northern parts of the city tend to be greener, cleaner and quieter. Their epicenter is the Tel Aviv port area, and the junction of Dizengoff and Yirmiyahu Street.
Central Tel Aviv is one big epicenter - but if I'd have to pinpoint the major points they'd be the Dizengoff Square and Dizengoff Center (which is a mall on the corner of Dizengoff and King George)
Jaffa will be more exotic, being old and mixed, with a distinct Arab flavor. The epicenters are Old Jaffa and the area of the Flea Market, which has become very hip and trendy.

2Yarden is right with the advice. Tel-aviv is not an intimidating city like Paris or London and you should just make sure that your room in your hotel is not noisy. For just 2 days I would stay in the center and close to the beaches.
See this to get an idea how is Tel-Aviv:

4The hostel on Bnei dan st.is the best location out there and its in the north right on the park,best for taking a bicycle all the way thru the Tel aviv harbor along the beach to Jaffa.Not sure what the hostel is like,it is the official youth hostel unless things have changed and some construction next door might get noisy.
