Tel Aviv offers many hotels and facilities where to stay then it seems difficult to choose the most suitable place to be without the right travel tips. To discover the soul and the folklore of the Israeli metropolis, homeland of traditions, contaminations and worldliness, it is good to choose a hotel in the center, not far from the highlights and from the beach. Here are some travel tips
Tel Aviv. Not far from the buzzing area of lights, restaurants and cocktail bars of Rothschild street, pebbles and dilapidated buildings open the scene to a delightfully furnished, contemporary and refined hotel, the Shenkin Hotel, a boutique hotel famous for its glamorous, eclectic style and its young and easy chic atmosphere. The structure is entirely managed by locals, young people who have a sunny, friendly and cosmopolitan attitude and are the ideal point to refer to for information on trips, things to do and see in the city and in Israel in general (even unconventional places or experiences more folkloristic), precisely because they are from there. This is also the reason why the rooms are only 30, thus the staff can focus on a few customers, to take care of them and fulfilling the most disparate requests.
The entrance is preceded by a minimal and well-kept garden: some design benches, a suspended hammock chair with soft pillows, a table with a large umbrella to shelter from the sun while waiting for the check-in, the check-out or transportations on the hottest days. All around small minutely modeled hedges. The garden and the elegant hall convey care, cleanliness and familiarity, favoring a relaxed state of mind that immediately makes you feel at ease with the new location. Just beyond the lobby, to the right of the elevator, there is a lovely flowery courtyard with a cafeteria corner available 24 hours a day. Here you can have breakfast, a snack, you can read and work at the lap top thanks to the very powerful wi-fi. You can even rent bicycles for riding around couple of hours. The atmosphere is intimate and homely. Those who prefer a more lounge-like setting with a view from the top can spend leisure moments on the roof top, where a finely furnished terrace opens up to the urban panorama of Tel Aviv offering sun loungers and a shower for those who want to stop and sunbathe. Moreover, the structure has a spa to combine various wellness treatments to the stay and furthermore it is possible to organize guided tours on reservation such as the culinary tour with tasting of typical products at Caramel Market.
The Shenkin hotel rooms are cozy and unexpectedly bright. I had the pleasure of staying in a classic room and I can guarantee that the cleanliness is impeccable, it is certainly not one of those hotels where they do not make the bed or they forget clean the room day by day, absolutley they do and very well! The shades of the plaster and furnishings, yellow, brown, white, perfectly according with the modernism of essential design. Eastern influence gives an ethnic touch.
I recommend the Shenkin Hotel because it is located in a strategic hub served by many bus lines, 10 minutes from the bus station and 15 minutes from the train station and the modern art museum. Around here, trendy cafes and art shops leading up to Binyamin street (another promenade with flea markets and café) are what captures the attention and determines the choice. In the square next to the building near Allenby street, tuesday afternoon and friday at noon you can browse the craft market, often “accompanied” by the performance of street artists. What could you ask more to get in touch with the soul and the folklore of Tel Aviv? A parking ? Here it is: 3 parking spaces in the hotel or at the covered parking. Do not hesitate to contact the reception via telephone or email for any information, they are always ready to answer questions from interested parties.
