I was recently on a business trip and stayed for several days in a top-rated Tel Aviv business hotel. After my business meetings, my wife was to join me in Israel for a few days. Rather than have her stay in the business hotel -- which is very highly regarded but not very romantic -- I checked TripAdvisor and found The Diaghilev as a highly-rated boutique hotel in a cool neighborhood.
As soon as I presented myself at registration, I knew I'd made the right move. Offers of wine were immediate, atmosphere was chill, room was large, well presented, with a balcony that looked over a quiet courtyard enclosed with trees.
The adjoining cafe, also with free WiFi, had a great playlist, excellent coffee and light menu for breakfast, lunch or evening snack.
The staff were most helpful with all of our inquiries. And 2-3 blocks down the street (out the front door and turn left) there are several cafes with excellent food and wine. Our only regret was that we didn't have more time to spend in this delightful hotel.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Diaghilev is a bohemian boutique hotel that offers an extraordinary and exceptional cultural experience intensified by an excellent personal service. The hotel features an art gallery exhibiting over 500 artworks that change every 6 months, unique and mostly radical decor items, a collection of hand made rugs from all over the universe, most of which are ancient and therefore reflect the aged cultures they originate from. The Diaghilev has recently established a HUB for Start-ups and integrates a wide activity in such fields as design, fashion and technology. The uniqueness of the hotel brought it into prominence among internationally acknowledged artist visiting Tel Aviv and the world of technology and start-up. Many employees of the leading corporations in the world choose the Diaghilev as their base in Tel Aviv. Built in the purest Bauhaus the Diaghilev invites its guests to experience a World Cultural Heritage site rich of hundreds of Bauhaus buildings and get a taste of the “White City.” Our uncommon nocturnal concept was designed taking account of a recent scientific research that showed evidence that black beddings cause intensive production of Melatonin hormone, which results in deeper sleep, stronger immune system and increased anti-aging effect. The Diaghilev is an eco-friendly hotel, committed to a continually expanding list of operating practices that aim to maintain minimal environmental impact. The toiletries at the Diaghilev are of outstanding quality. They are produced from natural materials created from plants cultivated for this purpose in the hills of Jerusalem. These products are produced and packaged at a small factory that employs people with disabilities and integrates them into the labor market. Our creativity-support concept lead to the establishment of the HUB - a shared work environment that is more than a physical workplace for creative entrepreneurs: It is designed to nurture a community in which creators will be able to collaborate with one another in order to produce innovative projects and initiatives. ... more less
