The Eclectic style of architecture was popular in Tel Aviv during the 1920s, and Balfour 6 is a stunning example. Recently restored as part of the municipality’s conservation project for historic buildings in the city, the outside maintains the quirky Eclectic aesthetic, and the interior is modern and spacious, with floor-to-ceiling windows and fine art lining the walls. Sandwiched between Rothschild Boulevard, Carmel Market, Nahalat Binyamin and Sheinkin Street, it is an ideal base for exploring Tel Aviv’s trendy Lev Ha’ir neighbourhood. There is also a free parking space for guests.

Snug but with all the facilities you need, this private studio is all about its location on one of Tel Aviv’s most famous streets. This Airbnb is situated within the quieter, northern end of Rothschild Boulevard, near Habima Square with access to hundreds of cafés, restaurants and bars. For those seeking a complete Tel Avivian experience, it is also five minutes from the famous Dizengoff centre – Israel’s first shopping mall – and less than 20 minutes from Carmel Market. Guests are also a short walk away from the coast and many public beaches.

Yafo Creative is a boutique guesthouse, specially designed as a ‘creative hub’ for visitors seeking to connect to Tel Aviv’s creative scene. Located in the ancient port city of Jaffa, a short drive from the city centre, it is housed in a 100-year-old building that has retained a traditional Ottoman aesthetic, with high ceilings and domed windows. The interior is a mix of modern and carefully chosen vintage furniture sourced from local designers. The four double bedrooms offer queen-size beds and original paintings. Apart from the rooms, everything else is shared and communal, including a fully equipped kitchen, two bathrooms, two terraces, and a ‘creative salon’ that serves as everything from a dining room to a co-working space. The hub’s ‘founders’ host regular exhibitions from Israeli and international artists in the lobby and other shared areas. Every Friday they also hold dinners for guests and other creatives, including local artists and musicians, so visitors can enjoy traditional food and live music performances.

Befitting of the Arab history of its location in Old Jaffa, this high-ceilinged apartment is designed with Moroccan tiling and exposed brick walls. It has character and style in abundance, with a two-person bedroom on a mezzanine that overlooks a spacious living room, and a balcony with views of the Jaffa flea market (Shuk Hapishpishim) and the local mosque. The apartment is ideally located for exploring the Old City, from its craft shops to the famous Jaffa port, and is also just a few minutes from the beach.

This spacious basement apartment is located in Neve Tzedek, Tel Aviv’s upscale neighbourhood, popular for its village-like streets, cafés and boutique art and fashion stores. Despite its basement location, the apartment is bright, with a mix of vintage wooden furniture and modern amenities – a design that encapsulates the stylishness of the area. With a queen-sized bed, it is ideal for couples, while two single beds can be added to accommodate small groups. The studio is within walking distance to Florentin – another neighbourhood renowned for its art – as well as the always-popular Rothschild Boulevard and the beach.

This one-bedroom apartment is situated in a neighbourhood that predates the city of Tel Aviv itself – the Yemenite Quarter, or kerem. Tucked away behind the famous Carmel Market, the historic neighbourhood is still relatively untouched by tourism; it is quiet, and its cobbled streets are lined with dozens of traditional Yemenite restaurants. The apartment is cosy and bright, with an open-plan living room and kitchen overlooking a quiet street in the neighbourhood, while the double bed is located on a mezzanine.
