A boutique hotel in Acre’s Old City

The place echoes with history, but no ghost disturbs my peaceful sleep that night.

The heart of Acre’s Old City is a warren of dim, arched stone passages where blue-painted doors open into tiny shops and dark courtyards. It’s eerily quiet.

There are no street signs, only plaques with quotations from the Koran nailed to the walls. You must go on foot. The shabby, mostly empty alleys are too narrow to allow cars.
