The Nordoy, the second hotel in a collection that also includes the Cucu Hotel in central Tel Aviv, has reopened its doors under new management. The hotel, originally named “Nordau Hotel,” was built in 1925 by architect Yehuda Megidovich in Central European style, and it was one of the city’s first accommodation offerings.

Preservation works commenced in 2015 and were completed over a year later, followed by a three month renovation project to reopen the hotel as the Nordoy. “Our objective was to maintain the building’s authenticity and charm in order to present guests with a seamless mix of old and new,” says hotel Manager Moran Shoham. The original stairway, featuring ornate iron banisters and painted wall murals, has been preserved, with a newly built section added to the back, which houses a quarter of the hotel’s 20 rooms.

“All of our rooms are very spacious, featuring an intimate lounge space with sofa, and most come with a balcony.” Categories of room are Deluxe Room (23m²), Deluxe Room with Balcony (23m²), Nordoy Room (30m²), Nordoy Room with Balcony (30m²) and Rooftop Suite (44m²).

All rooms feature a king size bed, Israeli furnishings, wooden desk and chair, Nespresso machine, Smart TV, and a choice of walk-in shower or bathtub. “We also provide an insightful concierge service and a beach kit to all of our guests,” says Shoham.

Rooftop and Dining 
The rooftop features a Jacuzzi, sunbeds, lounge area and the Dome Spa, housed within the building’s original dome, and offers a range of treatments, including massages. The rooftop also hosts a happy hour with champagne, cocktails, beers and small bites. “We plan to open a chef restaurant in the coming months with an à la carte breakfast and dinner menu,” adds Shoham. Currently, breakfast is provided from a choice of four nearby cafés.
