As I was walking down the Allenby Street in the center of Tel Aviv, searching for the newest boutique hotel The Poli House, I noticed a neon pink LED sign saying “Hello”. As I walked towards the sign, the place looked like a pop art exhibit with giant, bright colored pink, egg-shaped chairs in the lobby and a long bright yellow table. The wall on one side was covered with funky, graffiti like art. boutique hotel tel aviv
First, I was a bit confused, as I realized it was the hotel I had been looking for, but I didn’t see the reception desk in the lobby. Then I noticed a sign that pointed me to head over to the rooftop for check in. Later, I found out that the lobby was designed to serve as a cultural center featuring a gallery space, an art magazine and design book store and evolving fashion displays that would showcase works by homegrown Tel Aviv creatives available for purchase.
The elevators were boasting mood lighting schemes and LED screens featuring the daily weather, local activities, happenings of the city. A bright neon sign said “Welcome to the Poli House” as I was stepping into the elevator. The place looked futuristic and modern. Elevating lounge music added to the atmosphere of this funky, colorful design gem created by designer Karim Rashid. This trendy boutique hotel is housed in a 40 room Bauhaus style building that was built around the 1930s. The design was created to accentuate the modern, futuristic nature of the city in a bright and colorful way.
The Lobby and the Roof Deck
As I was progressing up to the top floor to reach the reception, I noticed that the second floor was lit up in blue while the third floor was lit up in neon green.
The top floor, where the reception was located, was furnished with large yellow, egg shaped chairs and eclectic Dali like pieces of furniture.
From the reception, I walked out to the roof deck, where I could see a magnificent view of the entire Tel Aviv below me. On the rooftop, there was a really cool bar and a heated infinity pool lit up in neon bright lights.
The Rooms boutique hotel tel aviv
The rooms are not very large, but they are decorated with bright colors and eclectic shapes are painted on the walls. Large mirrors in the rooms make the space feel bigger. All the rooms are connected with one long balcony outside. The bed is large, soft and comfortable. The bathroom is colorful. I really enjoyed staying in my cozy, bright room at the Poli House.
The staff was very kind and helpful. They were very friendly even when I showed up to check in at 3am. Given the futuristic layout of the hotel, I often turned to the hotel staff to find the breakfast room or the reception or with questions about neighbourhood and they always happily assisted me with a smile. I particularly liked their black outfits it was as stylish as everything else in the hotel. They were wearing a long jumpsuit slimmed around their waist.
The breakfast is served at the famous organic cafe next door called Loveat. Guests have private access to enjoy their breakfast in its garden. There are about half a dozen western and middle-eastern breakfast options on the menu. Everything looks amazing and the dishes are very tasty. On the first morning, I tried the shakshuka made of cherry tomatoes, on the second morning, I had granola with buffalo yogurt, fruits and honey. Both of the dishes were very tasty, but the portions were rather large.
The hotel has a full-service spa, where guests can have an individual or a couple’s massage.
The business centre provides all the facilities for business travelers, a board room to arrange meetings, computers, printers, a scanner and a fax machine.
The rooftop provides an ideal place for events. It is a fabulous place for cocktail parties in the evening, where guests can enjoy a sip of cocktail and admire the skyline of Tel Aviv.
The hotel is situated right in the city center, 5 minutes away from the busy Carmel Market and about 10 minutes walk away from the Dizengoff Center. It is within walking distance from many of the best shops and restaurants of Tel Aviv.
The Poli House provides a futuristic, colorful, pop-art like experience to its guests. It is recommended to young people, artists who want to stay in a vibrant neighbourhood and enjoy a colorful design hotel.
