It’s casual but, if you’re on your way out, anything goes.

Hotel restaurant

It’s a casual all-day dining spot, where you can enjoy the buzz of the area. When the sun sets, settle in for candle-lit aperitivos and leisurely dinners.

Cucu Hotel
Dizengoff St 83
Tel Aviv

The hotel’s in the centre of Tel Aviv, close to all its buzzing bars and nightlife.


The nearest airport is Ben Gurion, served by EasyJet with direct five-hour flights from London. The drive to the hotel should take half an hour; transfers cost US $50.


Halshalom is the closest train station, a 15-minute drive from the hotel. For more information on arriving in Tel Aviv by train, visit Israel Railways' website.


The city-central setting makes a car redundant, but if you do have one in tow, you can park it a five-minute walk away for 50 new sheqels a day.

Worth getting out of bed for

Design fans should visit the Ron Arad-created Design Museum Holon, the country’s first centre for the celebration of interiors style. Art lovers should also schedule a stop at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art on Shaul Hamelech Boulevard. Stockpile herbs, spices and Technicolor sweets, before gorging on street food from stalls run by celebrated chefs at Carmel Market, a 15-minute walk from the hotel on HaCarmel Street.

Local restaurants

Orna & Ella on Sheinkin Street has been catering to Tel Aviv’s clean-eating crowd since the early 1990s – there’s an impressive list of options for vegetarians, vegan puddings and plenty on offer for carnivores, too. For the chance to eat burgers, bratwurst, sushi and curry – not to mention countless more-local meals – all under one roof, visit Samona Market, a local-packed dining spot on Kalman Magen Street. Opposite the hotel, La Shuk serves Mediterranean-inspired seafood and meat dishes, as well as good cocktails, all with excellent service – plus they’ll cut you a deal if it’s your first night at Cucu.

Local cafés

For a memorable roast-aubergine-filled pita or some authentic falafel, stop for lunch at Sabich Frishman on the street of the same name, around the corner from the hotel (+972 (0)54 452 4666).

Local bars

Join the locals at Zina (+972 (0)52 533 0028), a popular neighbourhood bar down the road from the hotel on the fashionable Dizengoff Street. If beer’s your thing, head to Ilka on the same street, where you can sample 30 different types; and for cocktails, try 223 (named for its Dizengoff number).

Anonymous review

Every hotel featured is visited personally by members of our team, given the Smith seal of approval, and then anonymously reviewed. As soon as our reviewers have returned from this boutique hotel in Israel and unpacked their bagels and jars of tahini, a full account of their city break will be with you. In the meantime, to whet your wanderlust, here's a quick peek inside Cucu in Tel Aviv…

Tel Aviv – and the street Cucu Hotel is on in particular – is famed for its wild nightlife: you won’t have to stumble far to find a packed bar on any night of the week. Hungover days can be spent on the beach, or mainlining the food for which the city’s famous – Levantine cuisine and its roll-call of mouthwatering classics (falafel, hummus, baba ghanoush…) is available at every turn, from street-food stalls and in swish restaurants. The café on the pavement as you approach the hotel sets the tone for your stay: young couples and friends sit and people-watch on the sidewalk, over a brunch of shakshuka – another Levant classic and a brilliant breakfast choice. Rooms are cosy but comfortable, with a comic-book colour palette of red, yellow and green. Ceramic balloons drift on the ceiling of your balcony and bright, unusual artworks are dotted throughout the hotel. If partying isn’t your thing, Jerusalem is just 45 minutes away; the ancient port city of Jaffa, in the oldest part of Tel Aviv, is doable by day trip, too. Cucu Hotel isn’t the flashiest in Tel Aviv, but if you want somewhere young, fun and colourful, this is the place for you.
