Guide to Tel Aviv with

Candy at The Carmel Market

It’s no secret that Tel Aviv is one of my favorite travel destinations. Although I have been there too many times to count, the one thing I love most about Tel Aviv is that each time I go, I fall more in love with the city.  This time I had the opportunity to experience Tel Aviv with while staying at the Diaghilev Hotel, which is located in the heart of the city that never sleeps.

By now, I have stayed in many different areas in Tel Aviv, but I am proud to say that I have found my favorite spot. The Diaghilev is located on a quiet street named Mazeh, just steps away from Rothschild Boulevard. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Rothschild, it is basically the place you want to be at when in Tel Aviv. Rothschild is where you will find some of Tel Aviv’s hottest restaurants, cafes, bars and clubs, and it is just minutes away from my hotel, The Diaghilev!

My stay at the Diaghilev Hotel with was an unforgettable experience. From the moment I walked into the hotel, I was greeted with endless amounts of hospitality by the all staff, especially the front desk. The rooms at the Diaghilev are extremely spacious and fully equipped with a kitchen, living room, bathroom, closet and a large balcony. Backstage is the restaurant at the hotel, and offers extremely delicious and fresh dishes. I specifically loved their tomato and egg salad and the Israeli breakfast. On the rooftop of the hotel there is a large garden of fresh herbs and vegetables, which the hotel uses in their restaurant daily. As well, the rooftop offers beautiful panoramic views of the stunning White City.

While staying at the Diaghilev, I got to immerse myself into the Tel Aviv culture, by living the day-to-day life of the typical “Tel Avivian” at the hotel. I spent my days sitting at coffee shops, eating at local restaurants, reading on boulevard benches, staying up late, drinking at bars and enjoying breakfast at any time of the day or night. I am so fortunate that I had the chance to live this urban experience at The Diaghilev Hotel with!
