Well Hello to you too!

The lobby filled with vintage flea market finds is literally #homegoals.

A book lover’s fantasy...

This bed of crimson heaven will make you want to stay up...all...night...long.

The mirror-ed wall makes sure you look good in every angle.

I don’t think a morning after has ever looked this good.

Sugar rush before stepping out for dinner.

It’s all in the details.

Mirrored headboards..Need I say more?!

Guests can choose to eat at one of to neighborhood spots for breakfast. I chose a stack of Vegan Pancakes served at (my favorite) local cafe just down the street from the hotel.

Highs & Lows

  • Walking into the 5th floor Deluxe Suite dressed in shades of deep red is truly a “wow” moment.

  • Curling up with a book in the lobby makes you feel like you’re in the living room of a very well traveled friend. Every piece of décor seems to have a story.

  • Knowing you are one block away from the turquoise Mediterranean Sea can’t help but put a smile on your face.

  • Breakfast at a local cafe really removes the touristy element of traveling. The delicious breakfast menu served all day has a wide range of Israeli and international delights to choose from.

  • It's not every day you get to soak in a free-standing bathtub lathered in bath products by Maaplilim (Tel Aviv based grooming company that uses natural oils and extracts from the Mediterranean region).

  • Checking out and heading back home after the perfect staycation getaway.

A two minute stroll from The Dave leaves you with your toes kissing the white foam of the Mediterranean Sea. Floating in the almost completely flat, salty sea is a therapy you didn’t know you needed.
