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
This hotel is modern, charming and beautiful. More importantly, the service was excellent. Food for breakfast and dinner (we didnt have lunch there) was delicious. Front desk staff, food service staff, housekeeping, managers were all so good with service!
Nothing to shout about here except to mention that this is a hotel that ticks over very cleverly: well timed smiles, well equipped and decently sized bedrooms; a pool, bar and restaurant to stop you straying outside! Special mention to the delightful Anglo-French duo at reception for their loveliness and professionalism.
We loved this hotel, can’t think of one even slightly negative or any feedback other than WOW ! Everything was sheer luxury, but, most of all every member of their team was so warm, welcome and knew exactly what customer service is all about. A special call out to Eduardo from the front desk team, he’s a superstar !
Not cheap but a beautiful environment and superb creative food.
