A stylish boutique hotel in the traditional Nahalat Shiva neighbourhood in Jerusalem. There’s a daily happy hour, free bike hire and a gorgeous sundeck. The interiors give design clout: think bare brick walls, animal-print chairs and cutting-edge photography.
Not far from the city of Arad, Kfar Hanokdim was built to be in tune with the desert and Bedouin way of life. It’s circled by palm trees and home to roaming donkeys, camels and peacocks. Tents and lodges blend in, thanks to a camouflage of natural fibres and local stone.
Overlooking Dizengoff Square in Tel Aviv, this boutique hotel is close to the Cameri Theatre, Independence Hall Museum and the beach. The 54 stylish rooms feature floor-to-ceiling windows and coffee machines. Enjoy a complimentary happy hour drink at sunset.
