For a small country, Israel has a lot of hotels.
There are luxury hotels and simple kibbutz accommodations, spacious resorts and urban boutique hotels, rustic tzimmers and spartan hostels.
Not all are worth a stay, given that a country that hosts some 3.5 million tourists a year needs a wide range of accommodations for all kinds of visitors.
But there’s a recent wave of new luxury hotels and charming boutique inns offering new options of smartly designed, cushy stays that would tempt any guests, whether locals looking for a quick getaway or visitors from afar. And trust us, Israelis love their hotels, whether as a destination for a weeknight dinner, a weekend getaway or as a location for family get-togethers.
These newer options range from spacious, high-rise hotels run by corporate organizations to smaller, much more intimate options housed in renovated, landmarked buildings that offer an historic commentary on their very location.
