From Within The Cinema Hotel & Tel Aviv
Next weekend – May 2, 3, 4 – is the ‘Houses from Within‘ event in Tel Aviv. We at Atlas are really excited, there are over 100 events, tours and exhibitions going on all across the city. Because there are so many we thought we would help by recommending some we think are most interesting.
Our number one recommendation is : A walk through tour of our very own Cinema Hotel
A visit to the first Bauhaus building in the city that underwent restoration, turning the legendary Esther Cinema into our unique boutique hotel. Registration is required as space is limited. For tour times & registration click here (we are number 46 on the page)
Because this year marks the 10th anniversary of Tel Aviv’s declaration as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO (the white city) both our Cinema and Center Chic hotels have some of the best and most interesting tours/ exhibits going on right beside them.
