FB Instagram Youtube Tel Aviv Hotels - 3 True Boutique Gems in Hip Tel Aviv! - Travel with a Silver Lining

Tel Aviv is a beach lover’s dream. Many have called it the region’s Miami! There’s a multitude of great Tel Aviv boutique hotels and Tel Aviv hotels. We stayed at Alma Hotel & Lounge and Market House Hotel, and also paid a visit to Brown TLV Urban Hotel. And we were pretty impressed with the quality of the Tel Aviv hotels!

This magical city never sleeps, and it’s actually many cities in one. The neighborhood with the most Tel Aviv boutique hotels is Jaffa, the oldest neighborhood. Many other Tel Aviv luxury hotels are located in the northern part, the wealthiest district.

A growingly popular destination in the region, the vibe and Tel Aviv boutique hotels might take you by surprise. Enjoy my review of Alma Hotel, Brown TLV Urban Hotel and Market House Hotel, below! If you want to read more about our lovely days in Tel Aviv check out My Tel Aviv Travel Story!

Hello Tel Aviv!

Alma Hotel & Lounge – The Chic Tel Aviv Hideout!

Alma Hotel really lives up to its description: it’s a chic  lodging with a (fantastic) rooftop terrace, a gem among Tel Aviv hotels. A beautifully restored early 20th century building, it’s a city center gem, a great Tel Aviv hotel!

Design & Boutique Feeling

Alma Hotel, a star among Tel Aviv boutique hotels. This gem screams boutique everywhere you look. A neo-classic wonder from the outside, the façade lights up at night. Once you walk in, you’re in one of the best Tel Aviv luxury hotels!

The spaces are broad and full of light, and it feels like an apartment building with fancy service. There’s a certain Manhattanite vibe – kind of like TV show Friends!

The best part of this Tel Aviv hotel is the rooftop. The ultimate spot for afternoon drinks, you’re surrounded by Tel Aviv’s busy life here. It’s such a cute place! The décor mixes Middle Eastern with a colorful, modern touch. Lots of relaxed furniture, like cute couches and cushions in vibrant hues. Turquoise reigns, but there’s also lots of fuchsia. An Instagram gem!

Room & Other Facilities

The rooms, in warm tones, are relatively big, and there was clearly a lot of love putting them together. A rarity of Tel Aviv hotels and city hotels in general. There are also some industrial elements. A few romantic touches finish the deal, like the big, classic bed. Loved the room’s colorful map, a really fun piece that appeals to my traveler heart! The modern desk with its lamp was super cute, perfect for some note-taking.

While the rooftop was wonderful, I missed a lounge area to really hang out in this Tel Aviv hotel.

Beautiful boutique feeling

Food & Drinks

The bar/restaurant area is gorgeous, with lots of whites and beiges in open spaces. However, while nicely presented, the food and drinks weren’t necessarily life-altering.

Service

Incredible service, just what you’d expect from the best Tel Aviv hotels. The staff was super friendly and professional. They were always willing to lend a hand or recommend places and activities. The personal touch I always crave!

Location

Practically perfect and one of the best among Tel Aviv hotels. It’s outside the crowded beach madness, but still just a block away from major Rothschild Street. Here, you’ll find a whole strip lined with bars and clubs to party until morning. Lots of hip little restaurants around, too, perfect for foodies!

Alma is in Tel Aviv city center, just a 20-minute walk from the beach. The only downside is that, although the area is quiet, it can be noisy at night. Bring earplugs!

Brown TLV Urban – A Star Among Tel Aviv Boutique Hotels!

Brown TLV Urban Hotel was fully booked when we visited, and it was clear why. The design is just what I expect from one of the best Tel Aviv boutique hotels. Rich in dark woods and an all-around earthy palette, it’s so luxurious! Their design inspo is “urban warmth” with a nod to the 70’s. In all, Brown TLV Urban Hotel feels like a boho-chic person’s home.

The Brown TLV Urban Hotel hosts another magical rooftop; small, cozy and with a bar/lounge. Great for a nightcap. The awesome service had the same feel as Market House Hotel!

Perfect Start of the Evening!

Market House Hotel – A Jaffa Flea Market Secret Among Tel Aviv Hotels!

Market House Hotel is a rarity: a near-perfect 5/5. Located in Tel Aviv’s old town, Jaffa, it’s everything I need from a boutique hotel. Gorgeously designed, amazing food and drinks and incredible service!

Design & Boutique Feeling

This is one of the most sought-after Tel Aviv boutique hotels. While a totally luxurious experience, this hotel is  still super cozy. Decorated in calming earth tones, the beautiful dark furniture looks fancy, without sacrificing comfort. A true design star among Tel Aviv hotels. 

As its name indicates, Market House Hotel is right in a market, and the décor takes advantage of it. The design borrows elements from surrounding Jaffa streets, while common areas harmonize with modern touches.

Welcome to Market House Hotel!

The design of this Tel Aviv hotel includes lovely B&W floors mixed with leather and 1960’s-inspired seats. It’s a little old, a little industrial, a little oriental! The façade is a Parisian cutie in brown stone, with tiny black balconies.

Room & Other Facilities

Somewhat common in Tel Aviv boutique hotels (and everywhere, really) are rooms on the smaller side. Ours was also cozy and modern, though. The design had lots of browns, in a very harmonious distribution. The room had hooks throughout the walls, so we could hang our clothes everywhere. Very practical!

Another highlight was the big balcony facing the city. Whatever type of room you book, I’d recommend one with a balcony. It’s always lovely to hear a big city waking up and going to bed, a must when staying in Tel Aviv hotels.

Food & Drinks

Breakfast was delicious, and the bread was unforgettable. Right next door you can find Milk, which serves amazing coffee. Complimentary wine and snacks are served as an after-office between 5 and 8, and it’s all delish!

Service

The impeccable service is why this is among the top Tel Aviv  hotels. The staff was always available for great recommendations. In all, there’s a real effort in bringing the personal touch to the table. For example, we were offered an extra beach bag, with water and a towel. The kind of detail that sets a great place apart.

Location

Smack in the middle of Jaffa, Tel Aviv’s oldest neighborhood – right in the flea market, in fact. A prime location among Tel Aviv hotels. This is my favorite part of town, so the hotel’s location is just perfect! This unique area is within reach of everything, and you can easily get anywhere from here. Plus, the closest beach, Jaffa, is calm and beautiful!

The hotel was quiet enough at night, so a perfect little hideout!
