Picture your dream vacation: starting your day on a white sandy beach with a cocktail in hand, followed by a luxurious spa treatment by the pool, a great meal in a gourmet restaurant, an afternoon swim or a walk in the woods, dancing at night  or perhaps listening to a concert. This isn’t the Caribbean, nor is it a dream… Take a break in the Emerald City!

Haifa is often referred to as the “green city” in Israel. Nestled in lush evergreen groves on Mount Carmel and spreading all the way down to the Mediterranean, Haifa is a city that has it all. From mountain views and nature reserves, through urban chic to white sandy beaches.

When it comes to Haifa hotels, the possibilities are endless!

When planning your get away in Haifa and choosing where you stay from the multitude of hotels, you can find something for any budget or taste. Haifa boasts hotels ranging from high-end luxury boutique and spa hotels, through five stars hotels, mid-range family friendly hotels and all the way to youth hostels and holiday apartments for rent. You can also find any of these in any setting you prefer: close to the sea or even on the beach, on the mountain or inside a nature reserve or in the heart of the city.

Many of Haifa hotels are located in restored historic buildings from the Templar era or from the Ottoman regime era. Imagine staying in a room with thick stone walls and feeling like you’ve been thrown back in time to a medieval castle or in a building, that looks like it was taken straight out of a thousand nights fairy tale.

If it’s the modern look you prefer, you have plenty of hotels to choose from as well, when you come to Haifa. Amenities are abound in all of the Haifa hotels and you can enjoy your vacation, whether it’s Rest and Relaxation you want or an extreme sports getaway.

With that said, Haifa has so much more to offer than just hotels of course. A great collection of gourmet restaurants as well as authentic traditional food, interesting and rich multicultural atmosphere, mixed religions (leaving peacefully together), international events such as the film festival in the autumn, a flower expo in the spring, hi-tech and business hubs, a zoo and much more.

If it’s not a city break you’re looking for but a basecamp to set out from, Haifa is perfectly located and connected to the north of Israel as well as to the center, making it perfect for “star” itineraries covering many attractions and areas, while returning to the comfort of your Haifa based hotel every evening.
