Many new hotels in Israel are opening every year. From boutique hotels to luxury resort hotels, many of the new hotels in Israel offer world-class levels of comfort and service and facilities which put them at the top of their class. The recent trend of new hotel openings in Israel is towards smaller, boutique-style properties, with high levels of quality and service, often in restored historic buildings in quaint settings, whether that be in the heart of a city, or the rural surroundings.
New Hotels in Israel
The last years have seen a swathe of new hotels opening in Israel. Here are the highlights:
The Poli HOUSE, Tel Aviv
The Poli House is a 40-room luxury hotel housed in a restored Bauhaus architecture-style building. It is located in Tel Aviv’s urban center on the historic Magen David Square. The hotel incorporates design elements of the city’s past while maintaining a modern feel and offers amenities like a panoramic rooftop pool, a sunbathing lounge, cocktail bar, and spa treatment rooms.
The Post, Jerusalem
Once the third floor of the city’s post office, the Post Hostel offers a European spin on hospitality in the world’s holiest city. This new hostel is in a prime location, just off Yaffo Street in Jerusalem’s city center. With 43 rooms (32 private and 11 shared dorms), it is designed to accommodate an assortment of travelers on a variety of budgets. A large common room and bar welcome travelers to meet and swap stories. The Post opened in early December 2015.
W Hotel, Tel Aviv-Jaffa
The W Hotel is bringing luxury to Tel Aviv’s oldest district, Jaffa. The new hotel and residences are located in a former convent and hospital in Jaffa’s port. Much of the site’s 19-century stucco work and stained glass have been refurbished. The lobby will feature 12th-century ruins and the vaulted basement will house the hotel’s restaurant. The W Hotel was completed in summer 2016.
Isrotel Hotel, Germany colony, Jerusalem
Isrotel is adding a new 5-star hotel to its chain in the German Colony of Jerusalem. Located on the corner of Emek Refaim and Derech Beit Lechem, the building will function as a hotel and as residential space.
