Israel really knows how to sustainably present and renovate heritage. Jafa is perfect example. Every building is live and preserved and have a function. Great

Beautiful city, lovely views, lots of history and mystery! A must if visiting TLV! Should be toured with a guide to better understand what's going on there, otherwise it's not self-explanatory and you can get lost easily.

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.

If you keep kosher, then the only open restaurants are in the better hotels; If you do not keep kosher then there are lots of places open - in Jaffa we like 'Hazakan v'HaYam' (translates as 'Old Man and the Sea')
