A 15-minute stroll from the beach in a neighborhood full of beautiful Bauhaus buildings and hip bars and restaurants, the Norman is a 50-room boutique with a rooftop infinity pool. Set in two 1920s residences (one lemon-yellow, one powder-blue), the property overlooks King Albert Square. The rooms have a serene urban loft feel, with hardwood floors, pastel hues, floor-to-ceiling windows and midcentury furniture. Book a Loft Suite for a lounge area, a large bathroom with a tub, and a balcony. Head to the rooftop for a dip in the pool and views of Tel Aviv’s skyline. Treatments are available in the wellness area, and the gym is open 24 hours a day. Indulge in a traditional afternoon tea in the Library, a colonial-style bar that serves cakes made by the hotel’s own pastry chef. In the evening it turns into a sultry drinking den. Dine on Mediterranean sharing plates at the Norman restaurant (head to the secluded garden for alfresco bites) or tuck into Japanese tapas dishes at Dinings, which features a central sushi counter.
In the Area
The Norman is close to Tel Aviv’s choicest dining spots; head to the Social Club, an evenings-only bistro, or to the Art Deco–inspired Yavne Montefiore. Bialik Street’s Bauhaus buildings are just a stroll away, with cute little museums dotted along the way; the Rubin Museum is a delight. For a bigger culture fix, it’s a short cab ride to the cutting-edge Museum of Art; afterward try traditional Israeli cuisine at the informal Dining Hall restaurant. And, of course, the spotless beach is a 15-minute walk away, with ancient Jaffa at its southern tip.
How to Get There
We had a wonderful late lunch at the norman private room. The dishes were delicious and the service was top class.
The beef filet and the baked sea bass was extraordinary taste and served at the top of chef performance.
The homemade cardamon and coffee ice cream and chocolate cakes were amazing. Topping that fresh cut fruit platter with the good of the land.
Amazing experience and valet parking :)
Spent 3 days at the Norman in early January. Great location that’s quiet, yet you can walk many places. Our room was well appointed and spacious. The food was great for breakfast and for dinner, the house restaurant was delicious. The Library Bar is a happening spot with nice wait staff. I definitely will stay here on my next visit.
We stayed at this hotel while on a Touring Israel trip. Very chic and modern with excellent staff. It's easy to see why it is rated as one of the top hotels in the world. Breakfast was very good. We also enjoyed visiting the lounge in the evening which also had great service.
We spent some great time at the Library Bar after a full day of walking in the sun. Great cocktails and excellent service but also some great photo books to browse through while listening to the fine music selection.
We chose this hotel as we saw it in one list for the top 50 best hotels in the world. It did not disappoint. The hotel is gorgeous and the staff is wonderful. Legitimately the softest pillows ever; and this is coming from people who stay at Marriotts all the time; which have some of the best beds in the world. It also helps that the restaurants within are to die for. If it's within your budget you must stay here!
To be honest, I told my travel agent to book me and my mom the cheapest room. We did not need a suite or an anything really large. Besides the hotel being designed to perfection (a mix of old and new, with a lot of character) the bed was just to die for.
