From the web:
In the 1920s architect Alexander Berwald, one of the most important architects of that time, was invited to plan a luxury hotel in the center of what was the young city of Tel Aviv. Berwald tried to create an architectural combined style between the European heritage, the Turkish-Oriental construction found in Jaffa and modern approach.
During its construction and opening in 1926, it was considered the central, innovative and luxurious hotel in the city. The hotel contained 60 rooms, a concert hall where the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra played and a billiard and dance club.
