13 Favorite this hotel — to remember it, to save it to your wish list, or simply to express yourself

Hotel Description

This Twenties mansion in the White City section of Tel Aviv has to be seen to be believed. Even as a building, irrespective of what’s inside, it’s impressive enough; it’s an authentic and well-preserved Twenties mansion in a hybrid Bauhaus-Ottoman style, a style that’s novel to those of us who aren’t Israeli architecture professors. It’s what’s inside, though, that’s most remarkable, at least for our purposes — the Montefiore is a modern twelve-room boutique hotel, combining the intimacy of a small guest house with the service philosophy of a high-end luxury hotel.

These are probably the twelve most in-demand rooms in all of Tel Aviv. A large part of the appeal is the Montefiore’s restaurant, a Vietnamese-influenced brasserie — the hotel’s owners are restaurateurs first, and it’s safe to say they haven’t quit their day job. But a great restaurant does not a great hotel make, at least not all by itself. The Montefiore’s service is genuinely friendly, with a can-do spirit that’s not exactly common in Israel — and it’s that, along with the effortlessly chic visual style, that keeps Tel Aviv’s beautiful people coming back.

What it’s not, in any meaningful sense, is a luxury hotel. If a pool or a spa or conference space for three hundred are among your hotel must-haves, then the Montefiore might not be a realistic option. But if your needs run more to a high-end guest house with a quality restaurant and warm, stylish atmosphere, then you’d be a fool to pass it up.
