Haifa District Hotels
The Haifa District is a coastal region in the northern part of Israel. The principal city is Haifa, a metropolis that spreads from the heights of Mount Carmel to the Mediterranean shore. Discount hotels in the Haifa District provide visitors with easy access to a colorful city that has often been compared to San Francisco because of its hilly geography and spectacular views of land, sky and water.From your budget hotel in the Haifa District you can take walking or motorized tours that will show you Haifas main attractions. One of the most popular is the BahaI Shrine and Gardens, in which the Shrine of Bab has a brilliantly gilded dome that dominates the city skyline. Dating back to 1850, the gardens are a sight to behold. They are made up of 18 magnificently landscaped terraces of grass, flowers and trees in which not a bloom or leaf is out of place. The dome is made of 12,000 gilded tiles, and the floor inside is covered with rich Oriental carpets. Be sure to take a stroll down Ben Gurion Boulevard through the German Colony. Here you will find fascinating architecture and many restaurants and coffee shops. Also worth a visit are the Carmelite Monastery and Stella Maris Church, the Haifa Museum of Art, and the Clandestine Immigration and Naval Museum. Students of the Bible will want to see Elijahs Cave, a sacred place in which the prophet Elijah allegedly hid from King Ahab.
