Tel Aviv has fabulous hotels. They’re stylish, cool, buzzing… and unfortunately, often rather expensive. Which is exactly where a brilliant Airbnb-style holiday apartment comes in: helping you save your precious shekels for sightseeing and fun instead. And there’s a lot of fun to be had in Tel Aviv – between the beach volleyball sessions, late-night clubbing and world-class restaurants, you might find you’re hardly in your room at all. Here are the most fabulous Airbnbs and holiday apartments in Tel Aviv, whether you’re staying in to cook or heading out to party… You can even book your next stay right here on Culture Trip.

In addition to DIY amenities like washer/dryers, housekeeping is available on request for a hotel-style touch.

Perusing the fresh daily produce in Carmel Market – think nutty halva sweets, piles of ripe tomatoes, freshly baked breads – is one of the joys of a stay at this apartment complex, just six minutes’ walk away from the city’s largest market. Sleeping between two and five people in stylish studio, one- and two-bedroom spaces, they all come with splashes of contemporary art, furnished balconies and marble-topped kitchenettes for preparing your market haul. The beach is under 10 minutes’ stroll away, too.

All just a few minutes’ walk from central Banana Beach, these apartments, ranging from studios to three-bedrooms, and sleeping between four and eight people, let you make the most of Tel Aviv’s alfresco lifestyle. Most have terraces that look right out to the golden Israeli sands, so you’ll wake to the sight of sun-bathed surf. Come evening, use an on-site barbecue to make a simple grilled dinner to devour as the sun sinks below the waves.

Get to know Tel Aviv’s cool side with this stay on the edge of Florentin, an up-and-coming district brimming with street art, hip restaurants and the thriving Levinsky spice market. Studio and one-bedroom apartments sleep two to four people, and come with kitchenettes, sheltered garden space and daily housekeeping. You won’t be needing many taxis: Tel Aviv’s historic neighbour, Old Jaffa, is walking distance away, as is the boutique-stuffed neighbourhood of Neve Tzedek.

    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.

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.
