Hotels in Tel Aviv
Like any other major Mediterranean beach town, hotels in Tel Aviv are more than familiar with catering to monied crowds, making the city home to luxury resorts and hotels aplenty. But if you’re backpacking or visiting on a budget, this tourist-friendly city also features dozens of great hostels and boutique hotels that can set you up with short-term roommates or appropriate accommodations. Just make sure you chart your hotel-to-beach route well before arriving since there’s no point missing even a minute of relaxation while staying in Tel Aviv.
Visitors will find many of the high-rise Tel Aviv hotels along Restif Herbert Samuel Street, a major roadway that divides the city from the beach and offers unrivaled views of the sea. Major hotels chains are set up along this route and feature all the amenities, but if you’re looking for a unique and immersive stay, consider booking a room in the heart of Tel Aviv. Some of the more popular hotels are The Rothschild Hotel, located on the gorgeous Rothschild Boulevard; the Hotel Montefiore, an intimate hotel less than a mile from the beach; and Dizengoff Avenue Hotel, which visitors will find in the wealthy northern district of Tel Aviv.
And if you’re visiting on a more shoestring budget, there are great hostels in Tel Aviv with many owned and operated by enthusiastic locals eager to introduce visitors to their city. Places like Chef Hostel Montefiore, Gordon Inn and Tel Aviv Beachfront Hostel all offer well-priced rooms and dorms for adventurous travelers.
