Do you need some good reasons to tick Israel off your bucket list in the near future? Other travellers who have already been there will surely tell you that it is a technological capital with a vibrant social life and beaches of unparalleled beauty, but actually the main aim of those currently searching for flights to Tel Aviv is to attend the Eurovision Song Contest 2019, of which it will be host city.
As a tourist, the safest and best area to stay in Tel Aviv is the beach strip spanning several kilometres along the coast and located less than 20 kilometres from Ben Gurion International airport. In fact, the majority of hotels are concentrated on this part of the city, locally known as the Tayelet, and you can choose among luxury establishments belonging to worldwide-renowned chains and others owned by Israeli hospitality companies. If you are looking for an urban escape combined with all the perks of the beach life, perhaps the greatest advantages of staying here will be waking up to sea views and being within short walking distance of the seashore.
Nevertheless, the Tayelet equally offers easy commutes to the main attractions and landmarks while ensuring that you will be in one of the most exclusive parts of town. Read below to find out more about our recommended hotels in Tel Aviv.
