Weather in Tel Aviv

Tel Aviv’s Mediterranean climate rewards a visit at any time of year.

Spring (March-May) is mild and makes for the best time to visit Tel Aviv. Temperatures are pleasant and are around 15-20C (60-70F).

Summer (June-August) can be hot and humid, though skies are usually clear. At the beginning and end of summer, the hamsin (or sharav), a hot, dusty desert wind, may blow for days.

Autumn (September-November) is still hot but less humid and makes for a great time to visit Tel Aviv and experience holidays like Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur.

Winter (December-February) is occasionally rainy, yet still experiences exquisite warm weather with clear skies. If planning excursions outside Tel Aviv, steer clear of travel at this time of year, which is wet in the Galilee and cold in Jerusalem.

Dan

The longest standing of Tel Aviv’s upmarket beachfront hotels, the Dan's unusual low-rise building and colourful exterior (on the beach side) makes an interesting change to the identikit high-rises that surrounds it. However, because of its age, some rooms seem to be at a lower standard than the price and reputation suggest.

The Diaghilev

This is a hotel where art takes centre stage. The décor combines white walls with bright furniture and even brighter artworks, all of which are for sale. Rooms are pleasant and comfortable and there's a restaurant serving excellent local fare on site. All the city centre attractions are close by.

Cinema Hotel

Formerly a Bauhaus cinema, this stylish little hotel is right in the city centre, just off Dizengoff Square. The comfortable, attractively furnished rooms have plenty of amenities, among them a fridge, beach towels and free Wi-Fi, and there’s a free sauna, rooftop terrace and business lounge too.

The Beachfront Hostel

A basic combination of hostel and hotel, The Beachfront is a little shabby and has amenities that some may find inadequate, particularly the dormitory-style rooms. But there’s hardly anywhere cheaper to stay in Tel Aviv, and it’s right on the beach. Breakfast is not included, but is offered at a restaurant next door.

David InterContinental

A gargantuan 5-star hotel, much of the David InterContinental’s clientele are here for business, but don’t let that put you off – a night spent here feels surprisingly intimate. Just across the road from Charles Clore Park and the beach, it’s a few minutes’ walk from Carmel Market and the Yemenite Quarter. Good value, apart from expensive Wi-Fi.

The Rothschild

Housed within a gorgeous, buttercup yellow building that’s almost as old as Israel itself, The Rothschild is a real sanctuary thanks to its tranquil courtyard and sympathetic décor. Service is top quality, as is the food served in the restaurant. Elsewhere, the emphasis is on natural – including the toiletries.
