Long ago, Haifa shook its sleepy image and is now known as a cosmopolitan city attracting both locals and foreign tourists.They keep on coming to enjoy the numerous interesting cultural attractions, the beautiful beaches and the bubbling nightlife – all great reasons for the opening of a new hotel in the city.
The Schumacher Hotel, which opened last year with entrepreneur and owner David Be'eri at the helm, stands in the midst of Haifa's beautiful German Colony. Part of the hotel is still the original building dating back to the 1930s and belonging to the Schumacher family, members of the German Templers who settled in the city. Adjoining the old stone building, which has been preserved and rebuilt, is a six-story modern structure that creates an elegantly natural connection between old and new. The unique atmosphere of the neighborhood can already be felt at the entrance, which passes
through an expanse of well-kept garden leading to the lovely design of the lobby, dotted with works of original local art. A passion for hospitality The hotel's 40 rooms are divided into three categories: Classic, Classic with a Terrace, and Superior, located in the new building, and three suites in the original structure. Some rooms have a view of the city's houses, others of the green Carmel ridge and the Baha'i Gardens, or the the Haifa Port.
Breakfast for guests is served either in the Shtrudel Restaurant or at Aroma, both located on the central boulevard a few minutes walk from the hotel. Snacks are also available in the hotel's well- designed lobby from 7 to 10 a.m. from Sunday to Friday, and at the 6-8 p.m. evening Happy Hour. Those interested in some true R&R can order up
a refreshing massage (Swedish,deep tissue, reflexology and more) in the treatment room or just grab some rest on one of the tanning beds located on the roof, which has the added bonus of a really great view. The hotel's central location makes it very easy for guests to step out of the bubble of tranquility into the city's bustle, discovering all of Haifa. At Schumacher they say that what stands behind the hotel experience is a passion for hospitality, the importance of a authentically warm atmosphere and the drive to create a truly unforgettable experience for guests. Naturally, that includes businesspeople, who can find everything they need, including a room for special events and meetings. A couple's weekend at the Schumacher also verified those promises as an optimal blend for a romantic interlude that was rich in experiences.
