Location of the hotel is great because you really are nearby everything. The hotel is a modern building located in a quiet part of the street. Good thing if you like large rooms, these are actually not hotel rooms but small apartment with little kitchen, living room and balcony (at least my room had one). Nice if you want to have friends coming over for a drink.
Staff is young and really friendly, smiling, establishing very personalized connections. Listening to your queries and complains. it looks like they really care about your well being.
The hotel is clean, design is sober, no keys or cards on doors but digital code (which I find convenient)
Apartments are large but a little bit old (painting on walls deserved to be done again especially in bathroom), design in room is simple, bedroom is basic but confortable.
overall cleanliness is good but no on details. If you are not a clean maniac that's fine but if you are you will be desapointed. You won't find here the cleanliness of a 4 or 5 star hotel. I found my hairs in the bath tub after the bathroom was done, stains on sinks in the kitchen, and so on, not mentioning when they forget to clean the room and I had to call reception at 4pm to tell them to send someone (what they did immediately)
But considering what you pay, this is a GREAT PLACE. I paid about 170$/130€ per night( in march 2014) breakfast included (that I never tried).
Another good point : Wi-Fi is free and FAST, and reception is perfect (I was using skype often and it was almost very good all the time)
So I really do recommend this place and if I go back to Tel-Aviv I will stay there again for sure
- 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
