The Holy Land and hedonism may sound like an oxymoron, but Tel Aviv has it all – fascinating heritage, culinary and artistic innovation and vibrant nightlife. With the new Port and Blue TLV Suites Hotel as your base, you’ll be well poised to explore it all. Its cool urban design, dazzling sea views and central location have made it a hit already.
The hotel’s name hints at both its location – a stand-out white tower seconds from Tel Aviv’s port – and the design ethos stamped throughout the interiors; a rich Mediterranean blue coats statement walls in the rooms and suites, topped with blackened ceilings and bare piping. Other vivid splashes of color jump out among an eclectic mix of design chairs and smooth wooden floors, coffee tables and bookcases.
On your second day, take the included day trip to Jerusalem, the beguiling capital brimming with world-famous treasures such as the Wailing Wall and the Dead Sea Scrolls. Back in Tel Aviv, hop on one of the hotel’s rental bicycles to explore the nearby parks and historic port.
Reflecting the cool blue of the Med, the hotel’s Deluxe Double rooms are each a spacious 248 to 280 square feet. Exposed pipes on the ceilings bring a touch of urban-industrial cool, alongside natural timber and crisp white bedding. Dead Sea minerals in the complimentary bath amenities have you Tel Aviv-fresh when you’re ready to step out on the town or beach.
Israel’s second-largest city pairs a strip of golden coastline with Bauhaus-era buildings, cutting-edge gastronomy and a historic port. It’s one of the liveliest and trendiest cities in the world right now, crammed with theaters, museums, coffee shops and nightclubs. Port and Blue TLV Suites Hotel places you a few steps away from entertainment hotspots and beach alike.
How to Get There
Very utilitarian hotel. Not much to explore or write on. Our room lock was not working. Appreciated the additional towels and robes for beach. Michael & James at the front desk were very kind and helpful with all our queries. They don't have an in-house kitchen so anyone looking for a late night snack or nightcap would be advised to carry their own food/beverage.
The hotel is okay, though staff should daily replace the in-room dirty/used glassware and daily add a fresh bottle of water. Furthermore, staff shouldn't walk around in the reception area with a sigaret between the lips, even if it's not lit.
a great place to enjoy yourself in for a few days in a special venue a superb room with good facilities and a lovely view of the sea very near by the very helpful staff on hand to sort out any problems
We really enjoyed our stay. The staff were so helpful and pleasant. We had a great room. Loved the extra touch of bathrobes, chocolate and slippers. Great location and lots of choices for restaurants. Close to beaches too
I have lived at the P&B for about 5 months. It is a brilliant location - right next to the port and local services. Perfect for the beach, port, market, eating, walking, jogging in the park, the small zoo, gardens and SUP/rowing on the river or sea. As a business traveler although the car park is limited and needs to be booked, it is a really great location to access the road network North and South and surprizingly for TLV the traffic from and to this location isnt too bad!
The rooms are all you would ever need, the Suites are spacious and well equipped and most importantly the air coditioning is great. Some reviews identify the rooms as dark - in the heat we experience out here - dark is good! But Ive always found them light and bright when I need them to be. Black out blinds are essential for a good nights sleep here! For business travellers, the WIFI is ace - no problems for big file downloads, videocon/skype meeting.
Breakfast is a big deal in Israel - the hotel is in the process of building a restaurant on the ground floor however offers vouchers for breakfast at a number of local restaurants. My favourite is Nimrod at the port - lovely people, authentic and amazing food.... so dont let going out for breakfast put you off... its just a 5 minute walk!
The most important thing in any place is the people. As ever there is churn and change, however the core of Michael and Oren are always plesent, extremely helpful and make you feel at "home" which personally I really appreciate as I am away from my own home and family so much. The team are always there to book taxis, tours, advise you on travel, places to visit, answer those how to? questions or just have a chat. The housekeeping support team are a great bunch - good fun, hard working and accommodating - tiptoing arround me whilst on Skype meetings - youd never know they were there (except the rooms are sparkling and clean!)
Having spent time in many of the bigger hotels along the seafront and closer to the "centre" of TLV I have to say that I would always favour going north or south, away from the centre - you expereince more of the "Genuine" israel - it may not be perfect and yes, there is a lot of construction going on (Israel population is growing at about 2.2 percent per annum) - its a different country, culture and approach which makes it souch a diverse experience for business and tourism. P&B represents great value for money - you can blow 2x the ammount very easily on a room closer to the centre of town and not get half the experience in the process.
Thanks to the team for making me feel at home.
