Located in the epicentre of Tel Aviv’s nightlife and culinary scene, this hotel is perfect for those looking to be right among the action. The vibrant graffiti murals at the entrance and reception serve as an introduction to the colourful design of the rooms’ interiors. Offering free Wi-Fi, air conditioning and flat-screen TVs in each room, Hotel 75 is comfortable and convenient. As is common in many hotels across Tel Aviv, breakfast is served at a nearby café.
Nestled in the Yemenite Quarter, AKA ‘Kerem HaTeimanim’, the hotel is just a short walk from the bustling Carmel Market and NaChalat Binyamin and a mere five-minute walk from the beach. Galileo’s modestly sized rooms and retro style make it a comfortable no-fuss place to stay. Breakfast is not included, but with so many excellent cafés and restaurants nearby, such as Cafe Yom Tov or Shlomo & Doron (for some of the best hummus in town), good food isn’t hard to find.
Located on Dizengoff Square in a Bauhaus-style building (an architectural style that characterises the city), this low-cost, boutique hotel is a great option in the centre of Tel Aviv. Featuring clean, modern rooms and a terrace for guests, it’s walking distance from the beach, buzzing bars, restaurants, boutiques and coffee shops (including Landwer café, where guests can have breakfast). To make the most of your stay, reserve a room with a private balcony and spend the morning with a coffee overlooking the square.
