In recent years, Israelis have begun rediscovering the charms of Haifa and its environs, and the area is rapidly becoming one of the most popular tourist destinations for romantic getaways in the middle of the week. More and more boutique hotels are popping up, while veteran institutions are renovating and undergoing major face-lifts.Templers Boutique Hotel
One area that has attracted particular attention recently is Haifa’s Germany Colony, in which a number of modern boutique hotels have taken over historic buildings built by the Templers. The Templers Boutique Hotel, for example, was built on the remains of a structure from the 1870s. This hotel is quite popular among couples looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of the daily grind.
