9 Incredible, Historic Israeli Hotels

Israel is known for her ancient buildings, and people flock to the Holy Land to see these sites of historical significance. But did you know you can actually stay in an Israeli building that’s more than 1,000 years old?

Israel21c has complied a list of nine hotels built in (or on the ruins of) buildings from the 18th century or before.

Hotel Alegra in Jerusalem’s Ein Karem neighborhood encompasses an authentic Crusader inn from about 1,000 years ago as well as a 200-year-old former synagogue across the lane.

Hebrew University political science professor Moshe Amirav, owner of the older building (which used to be a separate hotel but is now leased to Alegra) tells ISRAEL21c that to the best of his knowledge, the Crusader inn is the oldest house in Ein Karem and the oldest hotel still standing in Israel.
