The urban boutique hotel Brown TLV is housed in a restored bank building from the '70s. One of the highlights of the hotel is the cozy lobby with a clubby leather sofa, a geometric bookcase, and the vintage Playboy cover on the wall. The rooms are compact and well designed and the rooftop lounge has a fun jacuzzi and a great overview of Tel Aviv.
If you are up for a romantic adventure, then have a dip in the jacuzzi while sipping on the wine and overlooking Tel Aviv's rooftops.
Another great rooftop hideaway in Tel Aviv can be found at the Hotel Shalom, with its marvelous spa treatment that can be booked while watching the sunset, and even in Yitzhak Rabin Center (in memory of the late Prime minister,) which is located next to Tel Aviv University and overlooks the city.

A Hip (but Not Too Hip) Hotel in Tel Aviv
For some time now, minimalism has been the default look in Tel Aviv’s healthy boutique-hotel scene. This 30-room hotel, positioned at the crossroads of bustling Rothschild Avenue and bohemian Neve Tzedek, is a welcome departure.
Warm, retro-flavored, a little party-friendly, it brings America’s trendy Standard hotel chain to mind. The look is a blend of seventies and mid-century modern; checking in, I found myself considering a blowup of a vintage Playboy cover to a soundtrack of Burt Bacharach. The turfed sundeck is a natural place for cocktails, and some evenings the bar projects movies onto the wall of a neighboring building. Rooms are city-sized but generous by New York standards, and plenty stylish.
