Everyone has to be to Jaffa, is a neighborhood of Tel Aviv. You found in jaffa many restaurants, little markets, great shops and great people! It’s not so noisy as at the central of telaviv. I recommend highly this place!

Old Jaffa has great history and views and wonderful alleyways and shops to get lost in. While I would not say it was our favorite stop on the 5 day Israel whistle tour it was surely a wonderful place to visit.

I didn't know what to expect and I can say there is much to see. An occasional mosque and church but nothing that I would qualify as interesting. Actually, I would skip the whole of Jaffa and go somewhere else. The old market part was...More

Jaffa is a fabulous place and a must see. Plan for an extended stroll along the seaside if Tel Aviv toward Jaffa to enjoy its historic silhouette .

Hands down, I would recommend the Royal Beach Hotel. We found it in walking distance of everything we wanted to see. (We're New Yorkers, though, so we walk a lot.) It's close to Jaffa and the Harcamel Market (by anyone's... More

I was going to suggest the Market House too in old Jaffa looks like a very friendly relaxed but lovely hotel - right in the middle of things and fun life in Jaffa - lovely walk along the beach path into Tel Aviv.
