Named for the famous Russian art critic and ballet impresario, Sergei Diaghilev, this boutique hotel has cannily channeled both the great man’s superb sense of style and his delight in the innovative. All of the one- and two-bedroom suites are soundproofed and decorated with striking original art (all for sale), and set up, purposefully, to promote restorative sleep. That means no blinking TV lights, glowing clocks or other sources of light once you’ve gone to bed. The separate living areas make this a good choice for families who want room to spread out. Note that the smallest suites accommodate two people, with an option for an extra person for a charge; the largest are for up to four people, or six for an extra charge. Though the beach is not near, you’re within walking distance of all the best markets, Rothschild Boulevard, and the picturesque neighborhood of Neve Tzedek.
