Concierge.com's insider take:
In Tel Aviv's historic Neve Tzedek quarter, Nina Cafe Suites is a five-suite boutique hotel whose style and spirit is inspired by the owner's many trips to Paris. It's popular with Europeans seeking an alternative to Tel Aviv's big chains. Each suite has custom-designed furniture that evokes the South of France and slate-walled bathrooms, and is individually decorated with antique lamps and European-styled mirrors and accent furniture acquired in Israeli markets. The duplex garden suite, the largest and the only room with private outdoor space, is the one to get, but it books up weeks in advance. Room service and breakfast are delivered to your room from Nina Cafe, just across the street. Although there's no formal concierge, a full-time manager arranges local excursions, in-room spa treatments, and restaurant reservations.
