Located slap bang in the centre of all the action, in Levinsky, a boho-chic neighbourhood packed with lively bars, hipster coffee shops and a rather splendid food market, the Dave Levinsky is a somewhat quirky, 27-room property with compact living and sleeping spaces that have a retro theme and everything you need for a weekend break. It’s a young and vibrant place, reflected in its fashionable clientele, and also slightly naughty (we experienced that first hand, but there’s no gossip to be told here – what happens in Tel Aviv stays in Tel Aviv).
No urban crash pad in the city of Tel Aviv would be complete without a roof terrace and the Dave Levinsky’s has a Jacuzzi, open-air showers, sunloungers and a panoramic view, making it an excellent place to chill after a night out partying or a day spent drooling over the Bauhaus buildings of White City.
Being at one with the neighbourhood it’s situated in – and a boutique property without a restaurant – the hotel offers complimentary breakfasts at two nearby cafés. We thought this was a lovely touch, allowing us to experience the city like a local and forces us out to experience the vibrancy of the area surrounding the hotel.
In its website blurb, the Dave Levinsky describes itself as having ‘edge and chutzpah combined’. We can but agree.

|The location is enviable – just a short walk from the beach, the old port of Jaffa and the slick restaurants around Rothschild Boulevard – so it’s perfect for sightseeing or imbibing the local atmosphere. Spoilt for choice? Fear not, the hotel’s young, friendly staff were always on hand to give you the inside track on what’s hot.|
