Just a short walk from HaPisga Garden, The Jaffa combines ancient and modern elements in a way that mirrors the port city itself. Located in a Neo-Renaissance building that was once a hospital, the hotel preserved the soaring ceilings, delicate stone carvings and wide colonnades of the original structure and enhanced it with cutting-edge amenities. The five-star hotel has 120 rooms and suites – some come with spectacular views of the sea – decked out with modern furniture. The Jaffa also has a sizeable art collection, courtesy of the proprietor, avid art collector Aby Rosen. The hotel’s Sheshbesh Bar, located in a converted chapel, has a fantastic drinks menu, while the two on-site restaurants, Don Camillo and Golda’s Delicatessen, offer delicious meals.
