Nowadays, Old Jaffa City combines different and diverse populations and is inhabited by Jews, Muslims and Christians.
Jaffa was and remained a picturesque and memorable city that is made off ancient houses, unique alleys, and a historic port alongside a new promenade on the seafront.
Get to know Us
Our hotel is located at the northern entrance to the port at “Netiv Hamazalot” alley.
The original building in which the hotel is located was renovated in 1654 by representatives of the Franciscan Order.
It operated as a hostel for pilgrims upon landing in the Holy Land before leaving for Jerusalem.
During those years, Jaffa was a ruined city, and the ancient structure that remained among the ruins was a night parking lot for those pilgrims.
Before the last renovation of the building, several half-hewn caves remained.
Today, some of the building’s walls are decorated with reliefs representing elements of the Catholic Church and the Vatican.
The contours at the hotel’s main entrance hint at the building’s last owners – the kings of Spain.
Then, in the 18th century, the building was renovated and was given its new name: “Casa Nova” (the new house).
The hostel remained active until the end of the 19th century, when the building doors, which were already dilapidated and dangerous for residents, were closed.
In recent years the sounds of hammers and drills have reverberated between the walls of the Casa Nova. In 2014, after extensive renovations, we reopened our gates.
Our luxury suites await you, couples, businessmen and women and vacationers looking for a unique, quiet, romantic, and unforgettable experience.
