Stayed here with my wife for one night to have a night away (just got back). Saw all the great reviews here and called to book.
The lady on the phone recommended that I pay extra and get a room with a balcony, which I did.
Upon check-in, rooms weren't ready yet, so we waited, was told that we had been given room 505 and that we had been upgraded. We were then taken up to room 102 - a room with no balcony and no view. I asked the lady who took us up to the room why we had no balcony when I had booked a room with and was told that this was a "very big room" - which didn't answer the question.
This start left me feeling a little unhappy with the hotel as I had not received the room type I had paid for and was trying to make this short get-away as special as possible.
Room is large, just missing a few touches - bathroom wasn't well laid out and the shower was flooding the bathroom as it was in the middle of the bath. Bedroom basic with no TV in there (no great loss), but has the outlets for it sticking out of the walls.
Not sure how else to describe it apart from almost there - hotel has all the potential to be great, but misses out on details.
Staff were great though and very attentive and fun.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Diaghilev is a bohemian boutique hotel that offers an extraordinary and exceptional cultural experience intensified by an excellent personal service. The hotel features an art gallery exhibiting over 500 artworks that change every 6 months, unique and mostly radical decor items, a collection of hand made rugs from all over the universe, most of which are ancient and therefore reflect the aged cultures they originate from. The Diaghilev has recently established a HUB for Start-ups and integrates a wide activity in such fields as design, fashion and technology. The uniqueness of the hotel brought it into prominence among internationally acknowledged artist visiting Tel Aviv and the world of technology and start-up. Many employees of the leading corporations in the world choose the Diaghilev as their base in Tel Aviv. Built in the purest Bauhaus the Diaghilev invites its guests to experience a World Cultural Heritage site rich of hundreds of Bauhaus buildings and get a taste of the “White City.” Our uncommon nocturnal concept was designed taking account of a recent scientific research that showed evidence that black beddings cause intensive production of Melatonin hormone, which results in deeper sleep, stronger immune system and increased anti-aging effect. The Diaghilev is an eco-friendly hotel, committed to a continually expanding list of operating practices that aim to maintain minimal environmental impact. The toiletries at the Diaghilev are of outstanding quality. They are produced from natural materials created from plants cultivated for this purpose in the hills of Jerusalem. These products are produced and packaged at a small factory that employs people with disabilities and integrates them into the labor market. Our creativity-support concept lead to the establishment of the HUB - a shared work environment that is more than a physical workplace for creative entrepreneurs: It is designed to nurture a community in which creators will be able to collaborate with one another in order to produce innovative projects and initiatives. ... more less
