Hotel Indigo Tel Aviv: Just for Business

1

The Hotel Indigo Tel Aviv Review is part of the #NoCollusion, No Albania for TPOL where I break my 100 country count mark. See the World Map for where I’ve been.


Getting There: It costs 140 shekels ($38) to get to the Hotel Indigo. Before you arrive in Tel-Aviv, I recommend downloading the Gett app or carrying cash as the taxi from the airport does not take credit.


The Location 

Welcome to the Hotel Indigo Tel Aviv, a cautionary tale that booking the best points value doesn’t necessarily mean you’re booking the right hotel. While I was in the Iberia Lounge in Madrid waiting for my business class flight to Tel Aviv, I started checking for hotels in the first stop of my #NoCollusion tour. I try to book hotels ahead of time, but this one was literally booked as I was taking off. I ended up picking the IHG hotel with the best redemption for my points. What I know now that I did not know then is that Tel Aviv is like Tokyo in that it there are multiple cities within a city. The Hotel Indigo is located in the business district away from the bars and Dizengoff and the clubs of Rothschild.

The Room

I’ve become efficient at taking photos of the room. After being detained at the airport, the last thing I wanted to do was sleep. I methodically took photos of the bed and the interesting wallpaper and headed out for a light evening that began at 1:30AM.

I wanted an espresso but all they had in the room was decaf. I told the front desk, and they asked how I knew they were decaf. Hint: a red dot means no caffeine.

The Bathroom 

I probably should’ve showered before heading out, but time was of the essence. 

Overall

The Hotel Indigo was a comfortable place to rest my head, but unless I’m doing business in Tel Aviv, I’m staying elsewhere.
