The Poli House Opens in Tel Aviv

Tel Aviv is amidst a major construction boom, with nearly as many cranes as skyscrapers dotting the skyline. The newest addition to the cityscape, the Poli House, debuts this month after a meticulous three-year restoration of a Bauhaus-style building on the crossroads of Tel Aviv’s most bustling streets, artsy Nahalt Binyamin, humming Allenby, and fashionable Shenkin Street. Renowned industrial designer Karim Rashid reimagined the building for the 21st century with sleek, curvy interiors. Six styles of rooms range from cocoon-like spaces that can sleep two to the signature Circle suite, which has floor-to-ceiling views of Magen David Square. A panoramic rooftop pool and cocktail bar offer a sceney alternative to the city’s nearby beaches. From $225; 1 Nahalat Binyamin St.; 972-03-710-5000;
