Hotel Montefiore

Hotel Montefiore in Tel Aviv could well be a contender for the most distinguished and sophisticated boutique accommodation in the city. Ideally located just a short walk from the trendy Rothschild Boulevard, the Montefiore has gained an enviable reputation, and is even known for sheltering the Rolling Stones in the (very popular) hotel restaurant where they were able to enjoy a quiet night away from the prying eyes of the paparazzi.

Along with an outstanding reputation for quality service, the Montefiore is credited with hosting one of the top four acclaimed restaurateurs in the city. The food at the hotel rates among the best and service has often been classed as “exceptional”. Take a look at their Instagram page for a glimpse at some of the rather sumptuous dishes on offer…

It’s not particularly close to the beach – but hey, this boutique hotel is perfectly located if you’re looking for a relaxing, yet classy accommodation option in Tel Aviv. Only a short drive from the highway yet far enough inland to avoid the bustle of the beach area, it’s perfect for business users and regular tourists alike.

Prices start at just under $400 a night.


The Norman

Despite being located in a beautiful classic 1920’s building, the Norman hotel was only opened as recently as 2004. It quickly gained the coveted reputation of being the very first super-luxury boutique style hotel in Tel Aviv.

The extremely tasteful renovations of the building have been combined with every modern amenity that a quality hotel has to offer. From a rooftop infinity pool (that is photographed endlessly!) and two notable restaurants, the Norman has established itself as truly ideal boutique style hotel.

And expect to be spoiled: the Norman provides private bathrooms, 40-inch flat screen TVs, and free Wi-Fi. Connecting rooms are also available for larger parties and every room is individually furnished and decorated. A Japanese restaurant is on-site and the hotel is located within easy reach of beaches, the city area, and the airport. You’re not gonna regret staying here…

Prices start at around $600 a night – the most expensive option on this list.


The Poli House

Custom designed by the architect Karim Rashid, the trendy and futuristic Poli House boutique hotel provides a stunning respite from the hustle and bustle of the city. A zany blend of bright colors and complementing Zebra prints create an effect that is both modern and sophisticated.

One of the most stunning features of the Poli House is its rooftop pool and bar that provides guests with a 360-degree view of the city. One of the few venues to provide a complimentary mini bar, the Poli House should be high up on every discerning visitor’s list.

From free bicycle hire and Wi-Fi to spa services and a rooftop terrace, the Poli House offers everything visitors need for a comfortable and relaxing stay in Tel Aviv. The 40 room hotel is close to beaches, a one minute walk from the legendary Carmel market, and a business center is also available.

Prices start from around $200 a night.
