Top places to stay

Trieste Neve Tsedek

Luxury, bohemian style suites in the middle of Neve Tsedek with private jacuzzi and balcony and/or patio. Have you ever heard of the famous funky loft in Brooklyn, New York? This is the Tel Aviv version! Highly recommended, it's a perfect base for a Tel Aviv break. Israel's most famous vegan, farm-to-table restaurant is right next door for breakfast and the beach is about a ten minute walk. Click here for more info and bookings!

The Shell House

If you're looking for more of a self-equipped apartment, only a few minutes' walk from the sea - this is your place! The Shell House is located in one of Tel Aviv's best neighborhoods, the picturesque Kerem Hateimanim - literally a two minutes' walk to the shuk haCarmel and lots of great bars & restaurants and a five minute walk to the beach. They have fully equipped, gorgeous apartments, some with private or shared terrace/patio. Click here for more info.

Ruby Tel Aviv

Another urban gem, right off Rothschild Boulevard located in one of Tel Aviv's fabulous mansions. It's one of our favorite places to stay in Tel Aviv, stylish, comfortable and sparkling clean. We love that Ruby is sort of a mix between a boutique hotel and an Airbnb apartment - with four hotel rooms sharing a communal kitchen & lounge, so it's perfect for longer stays too. There's a shared garden too and some rooms have a balcony. Click here for more info!
