Concierge.com's insider take:
Historic Neve Tzedek is Tel Aviv's original hot 'hood, established in 1887 as the city's first Jewish district. Since that time—and in particular over the past two decades—the quarter has been popular with artists and writers and has attracted increasingly high-end restaurants, including the pan-Mediterranean bistro, Nana. Last year, Nana owner Golan Dor decided to branch out with the debut of his Neve Tzedek Hotel, a five-suite urban hideaway tucked into an elegantly restored Ottoman-era mansion. The suites are oversize—ranging from 500 to 1,200 square feet—with period details such as high ceilings, arched windows, and elegant plant-filled balconies. Two on the ground level include their own gardens; the penthouse has an alfresco hot tub; and all have a home-away-from-home feel with in-room wine cellars, fruit and chocolate displays, computers, and impressive levels of privacy. There is no formal restaurant, but the hotel is within walking distance of some of Tel Aviv's top tables and guests receive discounts at Nana itself.
