No one can deny that the beaches in Tel Aviv are spectacular. While having a front row seat to the sandstrip by staying in one of the grand Tel Aviv hotel chains on the beach is one way to go, others prefer staying closer to the urban action. Skip the Carltons and Sheratons and anything ending in -on and stay at one of the White City’s top urban accommodations instead. From long-standing boutique hotels with the top Israeli breakfasts in town, to newer hot spots by the Carmel Market, and even key high rises on Rothschild Boulevard, these central hotels are worth your shekels.
