25th September 2015

Tel Aviv is increasingly becoming a destination of choice for savvy travellers in search of sun, sand and stylish cultural attractions; who expect their hotels to live up to their high standards. The new boutique hotels sprouting up all over the city prove the perfect match for urban, chic consumers – we checked out one of the newest recruits, Hotel B – Berdichevsky.

Location
The Hotel B is about a 45 minute drive from Tel Aviv airport by car, and a 15 minute taxi ride from the Central Train Station. The newly renovated Habima Parking garage is a nifty three-minute walk away. It’s also just a short stroll away from Habima Theatre, Tel Aviv’s chic Rothschild Avenue and its boulevard cafes. Within easy walking distance of trendy shopping area Sheinkin Street.
Who stays?
This seems to be a fave haunt for budget conscious international travellers and tourists - as well as Israeli weekenders.
Style and Character
Let’s face it; there’s a an ever so slight 90s feel about the place, and I'm not sure that the hotel will age well style-wise - however, there's no denying that it's very cute and comfy right now!
Service
Friendly staff greeted us instantly, and service in the dining room was both speedy and helpful.
Rooms and Suites
The reception area is small: accessible only by walking through the hotel’s very popular bar area. The hotel has 23 rooms, including one suite. Rooms vary from the Junior Room -13sqm, to the King Junior Suite- a 30sqm room. The Berdichevsky’s design is "urban sexy and boutique chic" - warm browns, gold and whites. Furnishings are leather and black: a great combination, while marble flooring is bang on trend. Bed sheets are lush and high quality: 400 thread count Egyptian cotton. Each guest at the Hotel B is given an ultra-comfortable bathrobe to slip into after a day in the sweltering Tel Aviv heat.
There are no bathtubs in the rooms – but the shower is spacious and suitably luxurious. Those after a sea view will be disappointed – expect instead to gaze out at the urban landscape and iconic Azrieli towers.

‘Which room to choose?’
The Queen Superior room felt spacious and stylish, - we loved it.
Food and Drink
The hotel has opened a take on a speakeasy cocktail bar – the drinks being somewhat more impressive to look at than impressive in taste.

Breakfast options come á la carte - choose from six different style dishes. RASK especially enjoyed the fresh Breadbasket and Baked Goods - Hotel B works with a local patisserie that delivers fresh fare on a daily basis.
Features, Wellness, and Amenities
The Hotel B has a large treatment room with Jacuzzi and dry steam Sauna. It’s not a fully-fledged spa, but certainly held its own as an indulging and relaxing experience.
Perceived Value
Very well-priced compared to its competitive set, the Berdichevsky manages to feel luxurious at a - relatively (this is Tel Aviv, after all) - price tag.
Verdict
Boutique chic in the heart of the city! Recommended for any business traveller who is seeking a haven after a long day’s work. Its attention to detail also makes an ideal urban romantic getaway choice.
