Best Luxury Hotels in Tel Aviv
An expensive destination all-year-round, we consider luxury hotels in Tel Aviv to start from $400 per night on average, and in busier times, from $500 a night plus. Certain hotels start higher than this.
The Norman has featured as one of Tel Aviv’s best hotels since opening some 8 years ago in the heart of the White City. A restored architectural landmark, The Norman has become a favored destination for visiting dignitaries, opting for this boutique property over the big chains which dominate the beachfront area. In a city where hospitality is not often a profession, the ability to maintain consistent standards is one thing which makes The Norman stand out. Facility-wise, The Norman is boutique in size (50 rooms) yet has many of the features one would expect from a larger property. This includes two restaurants, a swanky bar, rooftop pool, as well as a fitness center and gym.

Along Tel Aviv’s beautiful tayelet (beachfront promenade), the hotel selection can be relatively disappointing considering all the city has to offer. The Setai, the first Israeli branch of the Miami Beach institution sits at the southern-end of the main stretch of tayelet, at the entrance to Jaffa. This provides guests at the Setai Tel Aviv with not only a perfect sea view, but also a view north along the entire Tel Aviv beach skyline. The hotel is in a restored Ottoman era police station and opened several years ago. The renovation perfectly restored this historic building including 120 rooms, Turkish Hammam spa, and arguably the best infinity pool in Tel Aviv.

Best Mid-Price-Level Hotels in Tel Aviv
We consider mid-price-level in Tel Aviv to mean the range between $250-$400 a night during most of the year. This budget will provide access to a large selection of hotels – including many of the city’s most desirable boutique properties in the heart of the White City.
Boutique vibes with high standards best describes the Fabric Hotel, part of the Atlas Hotels group. The hotel is located on Nahalat Binyamin Street, one of the city’s historic streets. Traditionally home to Tel Aviv’s fabric trade, the street recently turned into a popular street of café’s, restaurants, designers, and hotels. The Fabric Hotel features a popular bar, Bushwick and a beautiful guest-only rooftop. Guests love the friendly and young service concept that the hotel provides. This is something which helps Fabric stand out as one of the best hotels in Tel Aviv in the mid-level category.

The Port and Blue Hotel is a few steps from Tel Aviv Port, in the Old North district of the city, steps from the beach and tayelet promenade.
