About the hotel
Occupying two elegant 1920s Bauhaus buildings in the heart of Tel Aviv stands the Norman. The luxury hotel was opened in 2014 and has already been named “best boutique hotel in the world” by Jetsetter Magazine and has also been featured as one of the world’s best hotels by several other big-name magazines.
The hotel’s two buildings were restored to perfection by Architect Yoav Messer who made sure to place emphasis on all the details that maintain the elegant 1920s character of the buildings. The pale yellow and powder blue buildings are connected by a Mediterranean citrus garden and a magnificent terrace.
The hotel also has a stunning rooftop terrace which boasts an infinity pool and enchanting views of the city, with a glimpse of the Mediterranean Sea in the background. You will also find a 24 hour gym and spa on the terrace, called a wellness terrace, where guests are offered yoga, massages and personal training. Guests who wish to explore the city are offered the loan of a bicycle. The hotel also offers round the clock valet parking, as well as airport transfers, which are offered in various packages (penthouse guests receive complimentary transfers)
The Norman is located just a few steps away from Tel Aviv’s buzzing Rothschild Boulevard and it is just a short stroll to the beach. The area in which the hotel is situated is a UNESCO World Heritage site, known as the “White City”- named for its collection of over 4,000 buildings built in a unique form of the Bauhaus or International Style in Tel Aviv by German Jewish architects who immigrated to the British Mandate of Palestine in the 1930s after the rise of the Nazis. Tel Aviv is the city that has the largest number of Bauhaus/International Style buildings in the world.
The Norman has 50 pastel colored guestrooms which range from classic to deluxe. The penthouse duplex includes a living room, a king size bed and a large outdoor terrace with a private hot tub. The rooms all feature Israeli art on the walls.
There is a minibar in each room, Tivoli Bluetooth radio and iPad, a Nespresso machine as well as tea-making facilities, a smart control system, and homemade treats. The fresh flowers in the rooms show that the highest care is taken, even with small details.
Guests in the suites can also benefit from the help of a private chef. The bathrooms all offer bespoke Norman toiletries, rain showers and a fogless vanity mirror; suites enjoy free-standing bathtubs.
Food & Drink
The Norman is known for its excellent culinary fare. Some of Tel Aviv’s finest restaurants are housed in the Norman.
Chef Barak Aharni has been hailed as ‘the new star of Israeli cuisine. He has transformed the hotel’s Norman Restaurant to a new, more casual bistro called Alena, named after Norman’s wife. Alena is more in line with Aharoni’s personality.
Barak Aharoni’s menu at Alena represents the contradictions and contrasts that are not only the roots of who he is but are the pillars of Tel Aviv. From his kitchen comes simply-titled food, full of honest home-cooked love, that echo tempered European fine dining bursting with hot seasonal Mediterranean flavors.
The restaurant serves breakfast – a delicious buffet featuring salads, breads, smoked salmon and herring, cheese and fruits as well as made-to-order omelets and the Israeli favorite, shakshuka. Meals can also be taken on the hotel’s beautiful terrace. The Norman serves Tel Aviv’s favorite delectable brunch.
Lunch and dinner are also spectacular, with French and Italian influences. Chef Aharoni has also put a new spin on the delicious Persian kitchen and serves a new Persian menu on Saturdays. The Norman also offers an excellent wine list compiled by the hotel’s award-winning Sommelière, Shira Tsiddon.
