More About Tel Aviv, Israel Hotels...

The best places to stay in Tel Aviv are those that will give you the easiest access to the scene you're looking to tap into here, whether it's the promenades lining the beach, the bustling pubs, party warehouses, and chillout lounges of the internationally renowned nightlife, or the swanky boulevards lined with cafes, preserved Bauhaus-style residences, and glass skyscrapers. If you look in the right places, you can still find major value at accommodations situated in the thick of Tel Aviv’s action.

Airbnb Gives a Glimpse of Tel Aviv's Old North

To save a bit of money while feeling like a real Tel Avivian, stay in an apartment. Airbnb offers a variety of options to fit any budget. For example, for under $40, you can rent a cozy room in the Basel district within walking distance of the beach, the Tel Aviv Port, and the Yarkon Park.

If your budget stretches a bit further, you can rent a duplex apartment on Dizengoff Street with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and two balconies. The apartment has lots of character and is located in the Old North of Tel Aviv. At $139 per night, this won't be your cheapest option, but it offers so much more than the beachfront hotels that will charge you more.

Backpacker-Style Digs Without Too Much Compromise

If you really want to spend as little as possible to sleep in Tel Aviv, you may find the city's many independent, two-star hotels to be the best deals around. These small guesthouse-style options are cleaner and classier than you might expect. For example, the backpacker-friendly Gordon Inn is situated right in the center of the city and is within walking distance of restaurants, market, art galleries, bars, and – of course – the beach. 

Sky Hostel is simple and sparing, but it’s the perfect place to stay if all you need is somewhere to lay your head at night. At Momo’s Hostel, you can opt for a private room or a dorm-style room. Geared towards European backpackers, the well-reputed hostel has a TV room with a big plasma screen and its own bar with music. 

Meanwhile, Liber Seashore Suites is a great option for young families or friends traveling together who prefer apartment-style accommodations to a classic hotel room. The boutique hotel is right on the beach near Old Jaffa and Shenkin street’s designer shops. Another apartment-style hotel worth checking out is Dizengoff Sea Residence, which is walking distance from the Gordon Gallery and the Bauhaus Center. 

Staying Near Tel Aviv's Shores 

The repurposed, refurbished Tel Aviv Port recreation complex offers a contoured boardwalk with a beautiful view of the Mediterranean Sea. Shops and sidewalk cafes line the walkways, and bicycling, jogging, and skateboarding are popular pastimes. If you stay near the port, you will never be at a loss for somewhere to grab a bite, pick up some reading material, or replace that shirt you left at home. 

The Melody Boutique Hotel has a rooftop terrace that affords a gorgeous view of the Port and nearby Independence Park. The Port Hotel is close to three major beaches as well as the port, and features a relaxing garden. If you’d rather stay in a hotel in this area that’s a bit larger, check out the 120-room, three-star Tal Hotel, just minutes from the Tel Aviv Port.

If you plan on swimming and sunbathing, consider staying in the heart of the beach promenade where you'll have easy access to the Mediterranean Sea. Marina Tel Aviv Hotel offers views of Gordon Beach, the Marina, and Old Jaffa. If you prefer an apartment-style hotel, try Sea-Land Apartments, just one block from the sand. 

From Bauhaus to Bohemian Funk

Rothschild Boulevard is part of the historic White City district, with UNESCO-recognized architecture imitating the European Bauhaus style. The center of the boulevard features gardens, shaded sidewalk cafes, and walking/biking paths, and it serves as the center of Tel Aviv. Rothschild 71 is an elegant and intimate four-star hotel in the heart of the boulevard, with terraces overlooking the scene. On nearby Mazeh Street, the Diaghilev Live Art boutique hotel is decorated with contemporary art giving the hotel character. 

For those seeking older charm and bohemian funkiness, Neve Tzedek may be the best neighborhood. The first neighborhood to be populated in Tel Aviv, it's home to famous Israeli artists and cultural institutions. Craft shops, galleries, and jewelry boutiques line the narrow, winding streets, and this is one of the most picturesque places in Tel Aviv to enjoy a coffee at a sidewalk table. Many travelers swear by the Arbel Suites Hotel and the Kann Boutique Hotel, both of which provide easy access to the Suzanne Dellal Center for Dance and Theatre, the Nachum Gutman Museum of Art, and the Station recreation complex. 

Tel Aviv Is Easy to Navigate 

If you’re based in the center of Tel Aviv, you can walk almost anywhere. The promenade takes you from one end of the city to the other, and the relatively flat, tree-lined city streets are endlessly fascinating. If you like keeping active, rent a bike at almost any major site and drop it off when you get where you are going thanks to the municipality's Tel-O-Fun program. 

Bussing it can be a bit confusing, since there is more than one bus company operating in Tel Aviv, but the bus system is more than adequate and will get you anywhere you need to go. It’s also relatively easy to flag down a cab, or you can use the locally made GetTaxi app to order one quickly (Uber does operate in Israel, but GetTaxi is the standard here). If you want to travel due north or south in the eastern part of Tel Aviv, the train is quick and most pleasant.
