Pieces by Israeli designers and craftsmen fill Tel Aviv hotel The Vera, which is located in the Neve Tzedek neighbourhood, in what was once the city’s first maternity hospital.
The building had been empty for decades, and when owner Danny Tamari bought it, he found rooms filled with paper and old office furniture. With help from local designer Yaron Tal, he stripped the interiors back, removing years of renovations to expose the underlying structure.
The Vera Hotel’s 39 rooms start from around £100 per night and are spread across five floors. Each is decked out in a mostly monochromatic colour palette that’s contrasted by wood and leather furniture. Guests can serve themselves a drink from the downstairs vending machine – which stocks wines from Israeli vineyards – and relax on the roof terrace, which looks out across Tel Aviv.
