Bottom Line

For business travelers in the tech world or tourists looking to experience a different side of the city, Tel Aviv's Leonardo Boutique Hotel is an upscale option full of style and freebies. The 167 modern guest rooms have sleek black-and-white color schemes, zebra rugs, open-plan designs, and glass desks. Freebies start at check-in with beer and hot pretzels and continue with business lounge access, Israeli breakfast buffets, shuttle service to the beach, and Wi-Fi throughout (though with reportedly varying signal strength). This is a kosher hotel with a dairy breakfast and room service menu, Shabbat elevators and keys, and access to a nearby synagogue. This hotel is also popular for long stays with people visiting the hospital next door. Parking can be an expensive pain, so it's worth considering the Leonardo City Tower, which has parking and a rooftop pool.

Scene

Chic hotel with artistic touches, popular with young tech travelers and hospital visitors

There’s no denying that this hotel has style. It’s a modern design hotel sporting a black-and-white color scheme and occasional pops of color from the contemporary and pop art on display. Unassuming from the outside, the long lobby greets guests with a stretch of polished black tile floors, faux-white leather and wood rocking chairs, stacked stones, and a large alligator statue painted bright pink. Light music plays in the background. Overall, the space feels classy and relaxed. Unfortunately, a big downside is the lack of public space outside of the ninth-floor business lounge, which all guests have access to. This may be because the building was originally designed as an office building before opening as a hotel in 2009. 

Still, it’s popular spot for younger business travelers working in tech and folks in town to visit the hospital next door. Because of its location fairly far from the center of Tel Aviv, there aren’t many tourists in the area. 

Location

On the outskirts of Tel Aviv in the city's tech hub

Leonardo Boutique Hotel is located in the city's northern outskirts in Ramat Hahayal, Tel-Aviv's booming tech district. While it's far from most of the city's tourist hot spots, it's close to the North Market, Zappa Club, and a slew of good restaurants. There are two national banks within a 10 minutes walk for easy access to ATMs. 

  • 13-minute drive to Tel Aviv Port
  • 14-minute drive to Metzitzim Beach 
  • 17-minute drive to Rabin Square
  • 18-minute drive to the city center
  • 18-minute drive to King George Street
  • 18-minute drive Sarona Market
  • 20-minute drive to Rothschild Boulevard 
  • 22-minute drive to Carmel Market
  • 24-minute drive to Old Jaffa 
  • 29-minute drive to Ben Gurion Airport

Rooms

Stylish rooms with zebra rugs, bathrobes, and minibars

Leonardo Boutique has 167 guest rooms that have a hip, elegant style. Expect zebra rugs, big beds with fluffy duvets, and black furniture. Design details include black asphalt floors with rubber paint, mosaic-framed mirrors, and headboard graphics from Leonardo da Vinci sketches. Comforts consist of waffle robes, slippers, flat-screen TVs, and AC, while kettles alongside tea and coffee, minibars, and free Wi-Fi are convenient. Modern bathrooms have digital bathroom scales, hairdryers, and magnifying mirrors. 

Superior Rooms are tight on space, starting at 22 square meters (236 square feet), and outfitted with glass work desks and shower/tub combo with rainfall showerheads in the bathrooms. Deluxe Rooms are slightly larger and have laptop-sized safes and walk-in showers instead of tubs. Upgrades to the open-plan Executive Leonardo rooms snag slightly sexier black glass decor, large walk-in showers, and bigger bathrooms overall. Studios continue the open plan design and have upscale leather futons, step-in glass showers, and clocks with iPod docks. Leonardo Executive Suites have separate living rooms with frumpy leather couches. 

All rooms have lots of natural light, but could do with more electrical outlets. Some guests have reported noise. 

Features

Several freebies like Israeli breakfast buffets

This hotel notably lacks a pool and spa, but freebies are extensive. Aside from the free welcome beer and hot pretzel, the property provides free access to its business lounge for all guests 18 and over. Access to this classic space (think polished black floors, white marble, and worn leather couches) means guests can use the computers and printers, read a newspaper, grab a drink, or munch on fresh fruits, vegetables, and small plates while looking out across the city. In the evenings, there’s a full bar. 

Another great feature is the free shuttle that runs three times a day and drops off/picks up at the Hilton on the beach and Port of Tel Aviv. Beach towels are available at reception for free. There’s also an on-site gym that gets a bit warm from the sun, though there’s AC. It’s stocked with Cybex and Technogym machines, towels, and water.

A free dairy (no meat) breakfast buffet is served in Leo’s Restaurant. This is a chic space filled with natural light, black and white marble floors, and silver chain chandeliers. Buffet items change depending on specific guests preferences or large groups. A dairy-only room service menu is available to either the rooms or the business lounge until late. 

Religious features include use of a nearby synagogue, Shabbat elevators and keys, and a kosher restaurant. Other business features include two conference room halls that accommodate between 22 to 50 people, with options for catered dairy brunches, cocktails, and AV equipment for a fee. 

Things like adaptors and umbrellas can be rented for a deposit. Parking is an extra fee and must be reserved in advance, especially on Fridays and Saturdays. Like all other Fattal hotels, Leonardo Boutique has free baby kits loaded with bottles, sterilizers, washbasins, Gerber food, and more, though this hotel is not ideal for guests with families. Wi-Fi is free throughout.
