Throughout this trip the accommodation varies in style, standard and size.
In Tel Aviv, we stay in a boutique style accommodation in the city centre. The beach is just 5 minutes' walk away, the hotel offers an excellent breakfast and a roof-top bar is open during the warmer months.
Our kibbutz stays, offer an insight into a traditional and alternative way of living found throughout Israel. All rooms are spacious, clean and the kibbutz offer nice communal areas and swimming pools throughout the warmer months (subject to set opening times). At the kibbutz dinners will be served in a communal dining room where both guests and residents eat alongside one another on long tables, and you choose from a cafeteria-style buffet selection of hot and cold food.
In Jerusalem, we stay in a centrally located hostel, just minutes from Jaffa Gate into the Old City, in the post office building. We have graded the hostel as 'standard' because although the property features dormitory rooms, all Explore customers stay in private twin-share accommodation with en-suite. Whilst the rooms are small and simply furnished, they are clean and all feature private bathroom facilities, making it a great base from which to explore this historic capital city. There is also a large communal area with comfortable seating, a bar and their roof terrace is open during the warmer months. The main highlight of this accommodation is its central location, with many of Jerusalem's highlights just a walk away and access to the city's modern tram just 100m away.
