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 have just spent 5 great days at the Norman, this is without doubt the No 1 hotel in Tel Aviv. The service was exceptional, the vibe was fantastic the GM Yaron is charming. We have found our Perfect place to stay in Israel.
Thank you for making our stay so enjoyable.
The Norman is a boutique hotel centrally located with beautiful accommodations. The restaurant and bar were excellent. In particular, the staff was so helpful and friendly and did everything to make our stay wonderful. Every request was taken care of within minutes. In particular, a big thank you to Sophia. We can't wait to return!
This was our second visit to this hotel in a year and we've already rebooked for October 2020.
While there's no discussion that it's not cheap, it is however reassuringly expensive. Our entry level deluxe room is just perfect for our needs but the bed is the most comfortable I have ever slept in.The day starts with breakfast, either in the air-conditioned restaurant or in the garden. The choices are infinite and all delicious. Amazing juices, excellent french toast, lovely eggs florentine, perfect teas and coffees.
Enjoy a stroll down to the beach (the hotel provides you a beach bag) or to nearby museums. Enjoy a delicious lunch around the pool, my favourite is the meze with crusty nutty fresh bread. Dinner in the Japanese restaurant is never disappointing, it just keeps coming until you fall of the stool having watched the artistry of the chefs make the dishes under your gaze.
A nightcap in the bar, who make impeccable cocktails for the young and trendy locals, oh and my wife and I before you repair back to that amazing bed.
Wake up and repeat.
Thanks Norman and see you again next year.
