The Leonardo Basel offers a more cost effective way of enjoying accommodations along the beach-front strip. While not literally nestled upon the sand, the property is situated across the street, and many of its rooms offer a view of the Mediterranean. In an effort to mirror the informal, fun Tel Avivian spirit, public spaces at the Leonardo Basel have all been refurbished with modern furnishings in a light, subdued colour palette. Gone are the heavy marble and wood facades – all rooms are now polished with a pleasant minimalism. For the work-oriented traveller, there is a fully stocked business centre, as well as four conference rooms and a facility-owned parking.
