My wife and I stayed at the Diaghilev in late November 2011 for three nights, following a work trip in Jerusalem. This was the vacation part of the trip. The hotel is very nicely appointed - hip, stylish art and decor that marked a major departure from our time in Jerusalem. It is also well located near top restaurants and shopping areas, and if you are a walker the beach is not too far away. We received a free upgrade to a large one-bedroom suite with great local modernist/contemporary art. The staff was exceptionally welcoming and helpful, especially Rana (not sure if I am spelling her name correctly), who was in charge of guest services. The only minor downside was that the hotel had a cumbersome process for printing airline e-tickets. I don't know if this has been addressed. In any case, well worth staying here. It is pricey, but as travel guides warn, most hotels in Tel Aviv are pricey, and the Diaghilev is much more interesting than a large chain hotel on the beach. We travel internationally quite a bit, and this was a standout.
