“Perfect for a luxurious family stay in Tel Aviv”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

The Varsano is a breakthrough in Tel Aviv hotels. The usual stalwarts along the beach (Hilton, Carlton, Sheraton) are tired and lacking personality. The Varsano has a truly unique and interesting personality given it is housed in old Neve Tzedek homes. Our three bedroom family suite was ideal for our four children and the location in the heart of Neve Tzedek, with its cafes and ice cream parlours is excellent with just a very short walk to the beach and the Sir Stanley Clore beachfront park, beautifully renovated and great for kids. The breakfasts at either Dellal or Suzanna are both terrific and you can even use your vouchers at the Dellal Bakery which opens at 7am with delicious coffee and pastries, if you don't want to wait until 9am for Dellal to open. Martin, Shira and the gang at the Varsano were incredibly accommodating and we cannot wait to go back.

Room Tip: The three bedroom family suite number 8 is ideal with three or more children

we arrived at the varsano after a short drive from jerusalem. even though the little streets of neveh tzadek look like a maze it is really easy to find. the neighborhood is a little touristy but at the same time peaceful and quite. we really enjoyed the space of the hotel. we had the smallest room which is actualy very big and comfortable. bikes can be rented one small blocjk away. a lot of restaurants are found around the corner and even more on rothchild boulevard just a pleasant short walk away. the hotel is close to the beach but does not enjoy sea views, and fairly close to jaffa.

Room Tip: we booked the smallest room which was more than adequate, some rooms might have windows on the stree...

The Varsano suites are located in historic houses in Neve Tzedek - a very romantic setting with plenty to do within walking distance. While expensive - it provides excellent value and service in return.

The hotel furnishing is impeccable: from a Nespresso espresso machine to washer-dryer to full entertainment equipment (including iHome docking station).

From the Varsano we did walking tours of Neve Tzedek, Rotshild Blvd and old Jaffa, Hatachana area is a few minutes away - not moving the car in Tel Aviv is a big plus.

Some points in the area:

Hotel associated parking in the cramped neighborhood is a must if you come with a car - it is opposite the reception - when leaving tell them to reserve a spot for you to return to.

Breakfast is served in nearby restaurants - make a reservation through reception to avoid waiting.

We greatly enjoyed Neve Tzedek Spa just a block away

Room Tip: We stayed in the deluxe suite number 2 and had no problems with noise - road or roosters as some oth...

I have stayed in all of the big hotels in Tel Aviv.....and even the Hotel Montefiore on the small boutique side. The Varsano is the winner by far. We stayed in the family suite which is a 3 bedroom home. If you would like to stay in a multimillion dollar patio home in the coolest part of the coolest city in the world this is for you.

I stayed with my family of four and hit the beaches, Jaffa, Anita for Gelato every day, Jajo wine bar at night, breakfast every day at Dallal (included), and had a blast. Martin, Yotam and all of the crew have english down but have never learned the word no! They are the heart and soul of the property and really care where you eat, what you want, and are just nice people.

I can't wait to return.

The Varsano is a collection of rooms/apartments in historic Neve Tzedek. #4 was clean, spacious (1 bedroom, 1.5 baths) and delightful. It feels like you are home instead of in a large, over-used hotel (which describes almost all other options in Tel Aviv). In Tel Aviv, I've stayed at the David Intercontinental, Dan panorama, Dan Tel Aviv, Leonard Basel and Sea Executive Suites. The Varsano is the best all around. Great location close to the beach. Internet works well and is included. You feel a part of the neighborhood--roosters crowing, people walking by. Martin and the reception staff made checking in and out easy.

We live in Tel Aviv and stayed here for our anniversary , great location, near the beach, near the best night life of tel aviv.(check Suzanna roof bar near by) the rooms are very nice, probably the Hi end of what you can find in Tel Aviv. they give a lot attention to the little details, keep in mind most of the rooms are at street level, would improve service and add dark curtains if you don't want to wake up early with the morning Sun. all in all good money value, very recommended for couples coming to Israel. room 4 has garden view.

Room Tip: Suite 4 has patio view. loft seems nice.
