Head to Haifa, Israel’s third-largest city after Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, for an action-packed city break with dozens of sights to see. Likened to San Francisco with its hillside positioning on the slopes of Mount Carmel, Haifa is home to buildings that run right down to the beach-flanked Mediterranean. Elevate your city break experience with a stay at one of the best hotels in town, all bookable with Culture Trip.

You’ll be wooed by the minimalist design of this cute boutique hotel located in the German Colony area. From the outside, the place is traditionally styled with a grand garden entrance, but the interiors have a fresh, modern feel with natural stones and woods used throughout. Olive green and sapphire-hued fabrics used for curtains and chairs mirror the plants and mature trees sunning outside your window. Be sure to hit the roof terrace for a pre-dinner happy hour.
