Charming is the word that best describes this hotel. It will delight all nostalgics of old cinema. Once you push the door, you find yourself in a retro cinematographic atmosphere. All the decor has carefully been chosen. No detail has been forgotten. You will feel great here - as if coiled up in a cinema seat, waiting for a movie to be played.

The Cinema hotel is located in downtown Tel Aviv, on Dizengoff square. This city hall is just a few steps away as well as all the department stores and shopping centres. The beach is at a 10 minute walk and the international airport is at a 30 minute drive.
The Cinema hotel was pre-eminently a cinema for 60 years. Built in 1939, it was one of the largest cinemas in the city until it became a hotel in the year 2000.
The Cinema hotel, like its name implies, was originally a cinema. It became a hotel in the year 2000, and preserved its bygone cinema charm and decoration. The smallest details plunge the visitor into a cinematographic universe. The building was built in 1939 in the bauhaus style. Inside, you can find numerous cinema posters, old armchairs, projectors, old films, a stage director armchair... The place was amost left as was, a few improvements for the rooms were made. The lobby, all in marble, immediately plunges the guest into this outdated cinematographic atmosphere. Marble, old movie camera, chandeliers, stairways going to the projection room... are the elements that decorate the reception area. A terrace with a solarium allows you to relax while enjoying the city view.
The 82 rooms are spacious, also decorated with cinematographic items. Film posters, small projector like lamps, stage director armchairs... plunge the room into a ''cinema'' atmosphere. Black is emphasized by the dark furniture. The rooms offer TV, a telephone, a mini-bar, air-conditioning, safe and facilities for tea and coffee. Some rooms offer a small kitchen with microwave, sink and tableware. The black and white tiles of the bathroom give it a retro appearance. They are small but equipped with a bathtub, a hair-dryer and a telephone.
A restaurant is open only for breakfast, served buffet-style. The buffet is varied and offers sweet and salty dishes. The dining-room is decorated in the same style as the other places in the hotel, with cinema posters on the walls. No detail has been left to chance, even the tableware reminds of cinema. The plates are designed as a film negative. The room is bright thanks to a glass roof that lets the daylight come in. Wood (parquet and furniture) dominates and emphasizes the white colour of the walls.
