Tel Aviv, Israel, November, 2005 — Atlas hotels, Israel leading hotel chain for business and leisure travelers, announces today the reopening of Center Hotel as a new boutique hotel designed to celebrate the culture, spirit, art, and architecture of the century old city of Tel Aviv.

The historic Bauhaus building has been renovated to preserve the special characteristics of the "White City" architectural style. The rooms have been refurbished in an outstanding, unique and creative style that makes every room different than the other. There are 56 rooms in total; all feature white wooden floors, white furniture, unique local art and a designed wall. Most of the rooms have balconies overlooking the square with a table and chairs for a morning coffee or an afternoon of people watching. All the rooms are comfortable and have a dash of style.

During this period reservations can be made at other Atlas Tel Aviv hotels – Basel Hotel, Tal Hotel, City Hotel, Cinema Hotel and Center Hotel.
