Where to Stay in Tel-Aviv ? – The Best Zones for the Hotel in Tel-Aviv

Look at the following Map, with the zones mentioned on this page :

The vast majority of the hotels are located near the beaches, so don’t worry about that. Most of the hotels are also close to the main shopping area of Tel-Aviv and to the city nightlife. There are no really bad neighborhoods to avoid in town, except maybe the central bus station at night, but there are no hotels there.
Anyway, before choosing a place to stay, read opinions of travellers about specific hotels in Tel-Aviv. For Hostels, see later on.

Possible Zones to Stay in Tel-Aviv

If you want to stay in a good Budget hostel very close to the Rothschild avenue, see the Abraham Hostel (note : there is also an Abraham hostel in Jerusalem).

2. In the central part of Tel-Aviv, close to the beaches


  • It is close to most places of interest, you could just walk.
  • Close to nice streets like Rothschild, Shabazi etc
  • Close to the main shopping area, around Dizengoff center.
  • Close to Tel-Aviv main nightlife (Rothschild-Allenby intersection) and more.
  • Close to Jaffa.

See hotels in the central part of Tel-Aviv , choose the ones, on the map, that are close to the beach.

3. In the north part of Tel-Aviv, close to the beaches

Look at the following Map, click to enlarge :

  • More relaxed compared to the central part of Tel-Aviv (everything is relative, Tel-Aviv is not an enormous busy city like London)
  • Near the Yarkon park
  • Near the Tel-Aviv Port leisure area
  • Near cool beaches like Metzizim

Disadvantage :

  • You will probably need to use some kind of transport in order to enjoy the main city nightlife which is in the center and south of the city. Also during daytime you may need transport because most tourist attractions are in the center and south of the city (You can also walk, of course).

Hotels in the port area of Tel-Aviv  (You can read opinion of travellers).

4. In the South part of Tel-Aviv, close to the beaches

In the very south of Tel-Aviv, on the beach line, there are mainly big, luxurious hotels like David Continental and Dan Panorama.

See hotels in the south of Tel-Aviv ,choose the ones on the map that are more to the south, near park Charles Clore.

How many days should I stay in Tel-Aviv ?

Tel-Aviv is not big and it doesn’t have famous monuments that are a “must see” for tourists. On the other hand, Tel-Aviv is a pleasant city to stay with nice beaches, parks, cafés, people and nightlife. I would say that 2 days is a minimum to get the spirit of Tel-Aviv. In 2 days you can do some of these activities during the day and go to the nightlife spots during the nights.
