Hotels in Israel

The wide range of Israel hotels includes plenty of luxury brands, guest houses, B&Bs (called zimmers), “hospices” (which are actually small hotels, geared to Christian pilgrims) and kibbutz hotels (popular with big groups). Over the years, most lodging options have not been known for their character or flair, but there are exceptions, among the best hotels in Israel:

The King David Hotel. It's not for the budget-minded, but this member of The Leading Hotels of the World may be the best, or at least one of the best, hotels in Israel. Dating back to British colonial times, the plush hotel boasts views of the Old City, a lush pool area and great service. It's also part of the small Dan hotel chain, which has more economical options in other parts of Jerusalem and Haifa.

The InterContinental David. This Tel Aviv hotel has reasonable rates but plenty of luxury perks (like personal sitting rooms) and is located on the beachfront promenade, with the beach, shopping, and restaurants an easy walk away.

Dan Eilat Hotel. This mid-range resort in Eilat, by the Red Sea, sits on a private beach with views of both sparkling blue water and mountains.
