The beautifully restored property channels its exceptional history, enliven by a contemporary design that is an homage to the original 1866 Ottoman grandeur. Situated at the fashionable and eclectic south Tel-Aviv area steps away from the beaches, Rothschild Blvd, charming Neve Tzedek, Jaffa's flea market, and old Jaffa, at the revived American-German Colony neighborhood.
This part of town offers atmosphere and character, adorned with chic bars, galleries, cafes, restaurants, and young designers’ boutique introducing the real essence of Tel-Aviv’s urban vibe. The hotel is comprised of two perfectly renovated buildings. The first is the historic Hardegg Jerusalem Hotel, Jaffa’s first luxury hotel, established in 1866 by the Drisco brothers. The second building is the original Norton House, named after Mr. P.A. Norton, one of the first American settlers of the colony. It is a charming 3-stories wood structure renamed The Villa Drisco offering private accommodations. (The charming Norton Suite, 5 rooms, cozy private salon).
The rooms and suites are exquisitely designed and come equipped with all the modern comforts & amenities. Guests will enjoy the sophisticated hip ambiance of the Drisco lounge bar, the rooftop bar, a private garden, and a techno gym. Our resident Chef, Shahar Bitton, presides over the Zada restaurant, presenting a contemporary approach to a forgotten niche of Ottoman cuisine that was originally developed and reserved for the table of the Sultans of Turkey.
