It was my pleasure to recently stay at The Dizengoff Avenue Boutique Hotel, an amazing boutique hotel situated in the pulsing heart of the city of Tel Aviv.
Only a short walk from the beach and top city sites including Dizengoff Square, Ben Yehuda St., Tel Aviv Port, HaYarkon Park, HaBima, Mann Auditorium, a close walk to the bustling restaurants, bars and coffee shops and the city’s vibrant night life.
Dizengoff Avenue Boutique Hotel
The entrance to the hotel from the busy Dizengoff Street is a narrow passageway with bar style tables and chairs along it for the guests. The lobby is very welcoming with an over sized leather sofa and table with magazines, Tel Aviv maps, and a nice book shelf with mostly English books for the borrowing. The reception area offers complimentary cold and hot drinks too. You are free to help yourself to drinks and biscuits at any time of the day, and there is always a friendly recepionist around to help with any question or directions you may need.
Ettie, the lovely manageress of the Dizengoff Avenue Boutique Hotel and all the staff there are very friendly and helpful. The atmosphere around the reception and lounge area reminds me more of a backpacker hostel which is exactly what the Dizengoff Avenue Boutique Hotels wants to achieve. Every evening between 7pm-9pm in the winter and between 8pm – 10pm in the summer, the guests are invited to complimentary wine and nosh in the lounge and outdoor seating area. People mingle and share experiences with each other and the atmosphere is friendly and fun.
Ettie sat with us and poured red wine and we chatted with a young man from Ethiopia, who was a guest there, and as other guests arrived they joined us for wine. It really was a warm and friendly feeling.
I really loved the black and white ‘urban’ concept design with its unique and quirky room decorations, such as water piping for light stands and ladders that disappear into the walls. Each of the 29 rooms represents a famous highlight from around the city and features a full floor to ceiling photograph of that site.
A balcony is reachable from each room with some facing the busy Dizengoff Avenue and others facing the back of the building. My room faced the busy road and I loved watching the people down below going about their business. I will say that I was surprised how quiet the room was once the balcony doors was closed.
The rooms are provided with a fridge and a microwave is also available to those requesting. It is possible to prepare light meals in your own room. The fun of being right in the center of the city is the close proximity to all the best bar, cafes and restaurants – and they are in abundance.
The hotel itself does not have dining facilities. Instead they offer a coupon for breakast at a choice of 3 nearby coffee shops/restaurant. We chose to just go over the road to a restaurant called Sidewalk, where we had an amazing breakfast.
I had their delicious Eggs Benedict breakfast. WOW. It was sooooo good.
