We started our Haifa vacation from our “Golden crown hotel” that is located at the begging of the old German colony, a 19 century German Templers pilgrim village . The Goldne’s crown sea view at the city harbor is wonderful and also is the back side with an exceptional view to the Bahai’s garden.
Around the corner of the Hotel is the “Ben Gurion” street , the main old renovated German colony road, which is filled with nice restaurants and cafe’s opened during the day and night. We really enjoyed the Arabic new kitchen at the “Patut” restaurant. From the lower part of the street you can look straight up to the 19 terrace with 1 km. length of the unbelievable Bahai gardens with the palace at his center. The free entry to visit the gardens can be held only with a guided tour. The English tour takes place 7 days a week at 12:00 , and does NOT include the inner palace.
Also, the gardens are located on the mountain slope therefore it is recommended to take the top entrance at and walk down the road. When reaching the bottom of the garden you had better take a bus (2$) up hill to return to your stating point. In the 45 minutes guided tour you will receive a general information about the Bahai religion with it’s 6 million followers worldwide. The top entrance to the gardens are located at “Lui promenade” and the promenade is a must see bird view of the city bay during day and especially at night.
The “Golden Crown Haifa” is in proximity to the municipal Theater and the quiet Beach and Rambam Medical Center Haifa Israel. All air conditioned, rooms in the hotel are equipped with a coffee machine and a flat-screen TV. Featuring a private bathroom with a shower and free toiletries, some units at Golden Crown Haifa also provide guests with a sea view. We must argue that the rooms are newly, very well kept and highly hi-tech designed. Breakfast is available daily and it is Israeli morning buffet is fresh, tasty and clean, and it is kosher, if this option is a must to you. Altogether,
The “Golden Crown Haifa” is certainly a very good value offer.
