“Wonderful stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2012

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.

Room Tip: We received a free upgrade by booking online, which i heard about after contacting the hotel directl...

We just returned to our moshav in Northern Israel from a vacation at the Diaghilev hotel---a great hotel--home away from home--that turned our Tel-Aviv stay into a European jaunt! We stayed in a suite with a luxurious king-size bed, black sheets and complimentary bathrobes, Persian carpets on the parquet floor and artwork on the walls. Cozy yet sophisticated, intimate yet cosmopolitan. Impeccably clean and tasteful. A kitchenette with coffee things and cookies on the house. Wide-screen T.V. and a panoramic view of the White City. Secure parking for an extra fee.
The staff was upbeat, friendly and helpful. After noticing my husband's skullcap, they suggested kosher eateries in the area---which were all delicious.
We'll always stay at the Diaghilev for our Tel-Aviv jaunts!

I've stayed with Diaghilev twice for work now and will be coming back again and again. The staff couldn't possibly be friendlier and although it's a boutique hotel it feels like having your own apartment, with a great living/kitchen area, bathroom and a lovely relaxing bedroom, everything you could possibly need for a short or long stay for business. Plus it's less than a two minute walk to the lively Rothschild Boulevard for cafes and restaurants. I got some great recommendations from the staff for wonderful breakfast stops too and the Israeli breakfast is not to be missed. I really can't find any faults with Diaghilev and I'd be very happy to recommend it to anyone travelling to Tel Aviv. I look forward to my next trip to Tel Aviv and staying at the Diaghilev again.

We have stayed in numerous Tel Aviv hotels over the last 5 years, from the beach front megaliths to Neve Tsedek boutique apartments, and until now have never found somewhere we would actually recommend. The Diaghilev has changed that. A great location just off Rothschild, the staff are extremely friendly and welcoming, and offer excellent service making you feel like a VIP. The rooms are clean, modern, spacious and comfortable. And finally - they have parking! A really great value hotel in Tel Aviv that I would highly recommend to anyone.

I have been meaning to write this review since I stayed in the Diaghilev while on business in Tel Aviv in May 2011, just after the hotel opened. I was visiting customers in Tel Aviv, most of whom offered to book their favoured hotels for me but I booked the Diaghilev myself after being impressed at the website. Everything from the staff to the huge and funky rooms to the cleanliness was impressive. When I arrived, there was a plate of biscuits in my room which was a nice touch. After I had checked in my bags were accidentally brought to the wrong room (there was a group checking in just before and my suitcase got lost in a sea of suitcases in the lobby). Upon calling the reception, my suitcase was brought to my room immediately with a complementary bottle of champage to make up for the error. Wholly unnecessary but much appreciated. One of the most charming unique hotels I have stayed in and I will be staying there again this year on a return trip to Tel Aviv.

When the taxi driver at the airport did not recognize the Diaghilev hotel, we were a tiny bit apprehensive, having arrived very late from Eilat after crossing the border on foot at Aqaba. We were delighted to see the hotel lobby, which, true to its "Live Art" name, was full of art pieces (but no Hotel name, so we were not sure we were at the right place till we checked in with the very friendly desk staff). There is a mezzanine on the first floor which also serves as an art gallery, this time with the theme of protest and conflict.

It is winter,and the hotel was not full, so we were upgraded to a very large suite with a large living room furnished in contemporary style (apparently each one unique, and kitchen We had gotten a travel site discount, so the price for the suite was even more reasonable. The kingsized bed was very confortable, with black beddings, suppposedly to help melatonin production for good sleep. Whatever, it must have worked!

Though the hotel did not serve food, it is five minutes away, on foot, from the Rothschild Avenue, one of the restaurant centers of the city. Dont ignore their recommendations for Benedict, a great all day breakfast place, and Rustico, a popular Italian restaurant. The helpful and friendl staff were a wonderful part of the hotel atmosphere; they were all responsive to questions about where to eat, and took care of having our laundry done (something like $16 for 6 kilos). Guest services even provided cookies and sparkling wine which we stored in our suite refrigerator.
