I always end up in Hotel Lily & Bloom whenever I need a quiet lobby to chill in the middle of Tel Aviv.
I love it as when you order something to drink or to eat, it is served to you with a lovely smile and in whole simplicity since the staff understands quickly whether you are up to small talk or not.
But that’s not all; the cozy name of the place makes you feel you are about to visit your dear aunty Lily and her Mr. Bloom.
Just as in your favorite aunt’s house, you will find amazing ornaments, beautiful souvenirs and stunning furniture which make this gem so special and comfortable.
At the same time, it will be filled with modern tools as your aunt is a cool woman who might even have turned into a role model to you.
This little heaven in town, which was constructed in the middle of the thirties, was refurbished in such a way that you are tempted to say it is eighty years young and going strong!
If you look carefully you will notice that the house used to be a bank many years ago. Some hints of its past can still be noticed, especially in the way it was build.
I can imagine the large entrance leading to the bar which probably used to be the cashier’s area, the conference room at the first floor along with its offices, nowadays reconverted into stunning and welcoming bedrooms.
The hotel may be regarded as a reflection on Tel Aviv, as the place is a blend of the many identical elements which make the city so special, charming and different.
This magnificent mixture of old and new, past and future, and colors is a must!
