Shenkin Hotel – Tel Aviv, Israel

June 29, 2017 42 Comments

While everyone is busy spending time on the beach partying and drinking in Ibiza. I decided to go somewhere more unique this summer. Here I am, found myself soaking in the beautiful Israeli sun on the beach at the beginning of the summer season, when the weather here in Israel is not yet too hot and humid. Israeli’s national flag is a true representation of the beautiful weather in Israel: Blue & White – the blue skies, with no clouds, and the white sandy beach! I’m extremely honored to be invited by Shenkin Hotel as a guest, and that’s where I spent my first 24 hours in Israel before I moved onto Jerusalem.

Located right in the heart of the Central Tel Aviv district, Shenkin Hotel is right in between to the most famous market in Tel Aviv, Ha’Camel Market, the hipster and trendy street Shenkin Street, and the tranquil and high class street Rothschild Bvld. Everything is walking distance from Shenkin Hotel, for shopping, food, café or chilling on the famous Tel Aviv Beach. No taxi needed what so ever.

My day started in the Ha’Camel Market with some street food and local drinks right after my chick-in. Although it’s a street market, but it is clean and non-chaotic. The market is filled with many tourists and local Israeli who are on the hunt for some fresh food and ingredients. (One friendly advice: this market is among the top 10 visit places in Tel Aviv, therefore, many items even food here are quite over priced. A classic straw hat here cost about ILS 50, which you can purchase the same one with half of that amount else where).

June is definitely a good month to visit Israel, it’s warm enough to give you some nice tan, but not too hot nor too humid, which still allow you to enjoy all activities in the sun. I spent my lazy Sunday afternoon chilling on the rooftop of Shenkin Hotel, which a bottle of Cava  and a book to work on my tan, before I strolled down to the beach for a walk during sunset. The sun takes about 2 hours to set here, and it goes dark around 8pm during the summer, which give you plenty time to enjoy the sun and all the beach activities here.


My body wakes with the sunrise! At 5:50am I was already wildly awake, so I decided to take the advantage of the freshness of the morning air and go for a run on the beach promenade. Shenkin Hotel is only less than 500m away from the main beach in Tel Aviv. During the morning, there are lots of joggers along the beach promenade, and there are even workout spaces built out on the beach for people to work out while enjoy the view of the beautiful Mediterranean sea.


The hotel does not have a kitchen on site, however, it has its own café just a few 2 streets down the road in this tranquil neighborhood. It is a lovey walk in the morning just to get a feeling of what’s a real Israeli neighborhood like, because I reached the cute French influenced café Ben-Ami Café. It’s located on a quiet corner of the neighborhood, which has lovely terrace sittings, where you can just chill and people watch.

What a perfect first 24 hours in Israel before I made my way to Jerusalem for some cultural experiences.


Stay tuned for my upcoming adventures in Israel.

    What a great little getaway. Love the boutique hotel and all the little activities you did around it. I’m sure it was a lot more fun than partying and drinking. Soaking in the sun and going on adventures is way better!

    So jealous! It’s been years since I’ve been to Israel. My sister lives there in the desert and it’s actually pretty hot already – Tel Aviv and Jerusalem are still pretty good weather wise thou. And things are overpriced in the market becasue they expect you to try to bargain them down LOL. Be sure to avoid the tourist traps in general thou. Can’t wait to see the rest of your adventures!

    I’ve heard amazing things about Tel Aviv and it looks like the perfect place to go instead of Ibiza! I honestly don’t think I could do Ibiza during it’s peak season and would choose a place like Tel Aviv over that any day!

    Hotel looks so fab too and great that it’s so conveniently located!

    Israel and Tel Aviv in particular has for long been on top of my list of places to go as it seems to have it all. The Shenkin hotel seems close to basically everything and offers a great place to stay at. And no matter how beautiful it is I doubt I would be up at 5:50 for a morning run, haha. I gotta work on that part. Now I really do want to visit Tel Aviv however and Shenkin looks like the place to stay!
