With sleek and elegant design housed in a beautiful 19th century complex – a building that was once the French Hospital – Jaffa Hotel champions a perfectly balanced old-meets-new feel. Archways and intricately-designed screens adorn many of the 120 rooms here, no doubt taking inspiration from the area’s Arabic background. All the rooms are spacious and feel light and airy with their white walls and large window – we recommend opting for a sea view room to really top off that breezy Mediterranean feel.
The surrounding area of Tel Aviv (also named Jaffa) is the oldest part of the city with twisting lanes, a popular flea market, and a port that the neighbourhood’s soaring clocktower watches over. It’s thought that Jaffa’s port is one of the oldest in the world, a point of entry into Israel for centuries and boasting mentions in the Bible. While there is a lot of history here you can also find many bars and restaurants dotted along the walkway, making the Jaffa Hotel a perfect stay for anyone looking to discover old Tel Aviv by day and night.
