As such, the lodging experience also varies, and we recommend you to try out the range of options available in Israel during your trip. Accommodations in cities is different from that in the desert, which in turn is different to lodging in Israel’s green hills – each landscape in Israel has its own characteristic style. Israel is an ancient, historical place and as such there are accommodations available in buildings from previous centuries, such as in Jerusalem, Jaffa, Safed and Akko. We recommend that visitors experience at least once the chance to sleep in accommodation that seeps with history.
