Located steps away from Jaffa’s famous clocktower, Setai is a haven of luxury in Tel Aviv’s most historical district. The hotel’s show-stopping feature is without doubt the rooftop infinity pool, overlooking the Mediterranean Sea to make you feel like the busy streets of the bustling capital are a million miles away. Each of the 120 rooms is classically designed, with simple but sophisticated features and beautiful marble bathrooms.
The hotel is spread over five buildings and housed in a former Ottoman jail and police station, giving guests a totally unique experience. No grim conditions here, however – the transformation to a luxury hotel has left the very best original features, such as exposed stone walls in some of the rooms and sweeping archways through the lounges and lobby. A well-equipped gym, decadent spa, and friendly, helpful staff are further reasons to love this top stay in Jaffa.
