200 usd minimum just for utilities and that's for a 1 bedroom apartment
Anonymous on Feb 07, 2021:
I'm from Tele Aviv lived here all of my life.The costs you mentioned are no where close to what you mentioned. 900 usd each month minimum 200 usd minimum and tap water cannot be consumed. You must be another one of those Russian trols.

I read all of these negative comments about Tel Aviv.Evidently none of the people live here like I do.I've lived here as a retired expat for 7 years now. The people are warm and genuine the city is modern clean and safe.I rent an apartment in the center of the city for just $300 usd per month my utilities average $60 usd each month. No bottled water necessary clean from the faucet. My 2 bedroom 2 bath is furnished nicely.My unlimited internet data includes unlimited calling only $18 usd each month.I'm originally from Spain not Israel and Spain is much more expensive than Tel Aviv.

Israel is a very expensive country for tourists, but it is very good for residents or people of the country.

Beer in Tel-Aviv is extremely expensive.
Israeli breweries are generally expensive, but in Tel-Aviv you can pay as high as 50NIS for 0.5L of local beer.

Cost of living in central Tel Aviv for a family with two kids - in OK quality (middle class +) with rent is according to my esitmate at least 8,500 US$/month or 30,000 Shekels.

And I am not talking about living in a villa, or driving a Merceds.

I am talking about living in a comfortable 110 sqm flat close to the city center + having a simple OK car for the family (Peugeot 308 for example).

It will cost around the same in a good residential village in west Emek Hefer - around 30 KM north of Tel Aviv. Just with a bigger house.

In exclusie residential areas it should cost much more. With older kids it might cost more as well. Tel Aviv is expensive.
