This hotel is temporarily closed. -- About the property: Arabesque is a newly restored and renovated Ottoman building in the ancient city of Acre (Akko/Akka) on the northern Mediterranean coast of Israel. Nearly 300 years old but with some stones dating back one thousand years to the Crusader period, Arabesque boasts a Great Hall with a baby grand piano and chef’s kitchen for events; a cozy courtyard with a trickling savil fountain; and three sumptuous suites all with high vaulted ceilings, original stone walls, tile floors, antique furniture, artwork, and all the amenities of a modern hotel room: TV, a/c, comfortable furnishings, a kitchenette. Arabesque is situated in the very middle of the Old City and is only a few minutes’ walk to the suk (market), the Crusader Knights’ Hall, the Templar Tunnel, the Al Jazzar Mosque, the Turkish bathhouse and all the other major tourist attractions. Its central location also means that the experience of a stay at Arabesque is one of being a part of the local community and not apart from it. About us Arabesque is owned by the father-and-son team of Evan Fallenberg (artistic director) and Micha Fallenberg (manager) and staffed by locals. Evan is a novelist, translator and professor of creative writing and literary translation at Bar-Ilan University; Micha is a trained tour guide and adventure sport enthusiast. For them, Arabesque is more than just a charming place to spend a few nights; it is a venue designed to serve the local community through hosting cultural events, promoting local talent, and welcoming artists of all kinds to engage in dialogue through the arts. About the neighborhood Arabesque is located at the very center of the Old City of Acre, one of the oldest inhabited cities on earth and a UNESCO World Heritage Conservation Site. Once the capital of the Crusader kingdom, Acre is today Israel’s second most popular tourist destination, with its colorful market, unique culinary traditions, marina, beaches, museums, festivals, mosques and churches. The annual fringe theater festival is the most important of its kind in the country. The main tourist sites include buildings and ruins from the Hellenistic, Ottoman and Crusader periods, such as Al-Jazzar Mosque, the Order of St. John, the subterranean Crusader city and enchanted garden, the Khan al Omdan and Sultan’s Clock Tower, Hamam Al Basha (Turkish bath-house), the Hospitaller fortress, and the Templars Tunnel. There are unique museums, like the Underground Prisoners Museum, the Okashi Museum and the “Treasures in the walls” Museum for Ethnography and Folklore of Acre and the Galilee. The city itself is a living museum offering walks that track Crusader, Ottoman, Napoleonic, Jewish or Bahai points of interest, though getting lost in the city’s maze of alleyways is often the greatest treat of all.

Originally 3 nights, then added 2 nights. Great place for relaxation and letting the ancient history and surroundings soak in. Glad we stayed in Akko instead of Haifa (went there for a daytrip). Hotel management (father and son) extremely helpful and very knowledgeable, if you want to better understand Israel with all its diversity and contrasts. Had a lovely and large room (worth it if longer than 2 nights). Great breakfast and availability to teas, coffee and water much appreciated. Hope to come back one day. Suggestion: walk to the beach (towards Haifa) outside the old city worthwhile, especially early morning or evening.

Loved it. Charming old stone walls, arched ceilings, peaceful internal courtyard/patio. Amazing location in the heart of Old Akko. Easy and interesting walk to all attractions in the old city. Wonderful made-to-order breakfast included. Staff was warm and helpful, most of all Evan the owner. Highly recommend.

My friends and I stayed a weekend before joining a group in Tel Aviv. It was beautiful, an Ottoman period stone structure with unique rooms. The breakfast are included and are very typical of the Mediterranean diet. The General Manager Fabian is very personable and laid back which sets the tone for his staff, without lowering the Hotel's standards. Would return. It's location makes seeing the city very easy.

The hotel is located in a couple of ancient buildings that are reached by following alleyways into the old city. So maybe not for those who like modern hotels but a unique and authentic experience if you are looking for something a bit different. The welcome from Evan and team is very warm and they bend over backwards to be helpful. Highly recommended if this is the kind of thing you like.

We loved this hotel. The staff and owners are thoughtful and helpful, the rooms are delightful, the food is terrific, and the view from the roof is amazing. The location in the old city is super cool and the vibe is great. We highly recommend!

Great experience. Great room, great breakfast, great location, great service. A place to be in Acre. The atmosphere is very unique. It is nearby all the turistic attractions in Old Acre. Thre rooms are very special and each one is different. The rooftop is another pearl this hotel can offer.

We’ve had a two nights stay in this magical hotel, located at the heart of the old city of Acre. The room was super clean, extremely cozy, fully facilitated (even with a working Netflix TV and account) and very exquisitely designed. Staying in such and ancient place that’s been so well adapted to a modern hotel was a magnificent experience. We found ourselves lying in bed, staring at the room and arched ceilings for hours, enjoying every little detail and aspect of our room. The same can be said about the other hotel common areas, all well designed to the finest details, pleasant and accommodating for every need. The staff was very helpful, hospitable, available and attentive to all aspects of our stay. Breakfast was fresh, diverse Andy very tasty. We will definitely visit again and recommend this place while heartedly.

Amazing hotel, with great service. The hotel's structure is divided into several buildings, the rooms in an ancient Arab building, tastefully, modern and modern. Small double room, but enough and definitely comfortable. Excellent shower, double shower, very special. Breakfast overpriced, perfect!
