The Port Inn in Haifa is another great option to consider if you’re in Haifa, or looking for a budget-friendly base for a few days from which to explore the north of Israel.
We spent two nights there as part of our 32-day family adventure across Israel, and enjoyed our stay a lot. Although we didn’t stay in the actual dorms or private rooms, we were booked in to the family-sized flats across the road from the Port Inn. Which were quite superb, it has to be said.
When chatting with Clil Guest House owner Oded about stopping by for a couple of nights in mid-summer, I was less than convinced by his comments that there was no air-conditioner, but that we wouldn’t need it…this is Israel we’re talking about after all, home to some horrendously loooong summer nights!
But by golly, he was right! With the rooms of his guest house on the second floor, there’s enough of a breeze to bring down the heat levels – and then there’s always the supplied fans to add some extra chill.
If you’re heading to Safed (Tzfat) and looking for something just a bit special, head to The Way Inn. You’ll thank me later…
We stopped there for one night as part of our summer adventure, and, what can we say, were completely bowled over!
We recently discovered the Mongolian tents at Genghis Khan (in the southern Golan Heights) as part of our crazy 32-day family adventure through Israel, and what can we say – we were completely charmed!
When we first booked a couple of nights through Sara, the amazingly helpful owner, I have to admit to being a bit dubious about staying in tents in the middle of the summer in Israel. But we couldn’t have been more wrong – the tents were amazingly spacious, comfortable, and fully air-conditioned (we even had to turn off the AC at night, it got too cold!).
