Tel Aviv’s Norman Named Best Boutique Hotel by Jetsetter

Want to travel like a superstar? Skip the French riviera and head to Tel Aviv.

The Norman, a small hotel on Nahmani Street, has just been declared the “best boutique hotel” in the world by Jetsetter magazine. The posh establishment, barely a year old, boasts 50 individually designed rooms and suites.

A word of caution, though. This lifestyle doesn’t come cheap. Accomodations start at around $415 a night for a classic room. But as points out, if you’re feeling like a big spender, you can drop roughly seven times that amount for a 250 square-foot duplex penthouse suite with an outdoor hot tub.

“Set in two 1920s residences (one lemon-yellow, one powder-blue), the property overlooks King Albert Square,” the editors wrote. “The rooms have a serene urban loft feel, with hardwood floors, pastel hues, floor-to-ceiling windows and midcentury furniture. Book a Loft Suite for a lounge area, a large bathroom with a tub, and a balcony. Head to the rooftop for a dip in the [infinity] pool and views of Tel Aviv’s skyline.”

Jetsetter editors selected the best in 23 categories, including ” best boutique” “best over-the-top luxury,” “best for foodies,” “best for romance,” “best-looking guests,” “best all inclusive,” and “best nightlife.” The picks were largely based on reviews from the magazine’s 200 travel correspondents.
