Suggestions please for 1am arrival

I am arriving from the west coast of the U.S. (originating from Hawaii!) very early in the am. I am en route to Haifa, then Acco, but think I'll need a night in Tel Aviv to sleep off jet lag. Any suggestions on a reasonably priced hotel not far from the train? Mahalo!

There is only one hotel near the stain station (Ha-Shalom), Crowne Plaza City Center, and it is not cheap.

Just did the same thing. It took me about an hour and a half to get out of the airport. took a taxi snd stayed at Hotel De La Mer, one block off the beach in Tel Aviv. Reasonably priced and great breakfast.

The Crowne Plaza City Center is next to the train station so you can proceed in the morning directly to Haifa. I checked the pric for the end of May and it is about 200$/night including breakfast.

Unless you are arriving on a Friday night/Saturday morning, consider taking a train from the airport straight to Haifa.

Trains run hourly through the night, leaving Ben-Gurion Airport station at xx:50.

If you are heading to Akko and already taking the train north, I would take it all the way to Akko (not much farther than Haifa) and get that out of the way.

Timetables can be found at: http://www.rail.co.il/EN. The train journey to Haifa/Akko is nonstop and takes 1hr 15 mins to the first of the Haifa stations, and 1 hr 45 mins to Akko.

I would go straight through to Akko. You are so messed up time wise, then go for broke. Checking in and out of a hotel ( checkout is usually noon) isn't going to help you much. ( IMO) just let the hotel know you are arriving 'late" and make sure to pay for the night before your arrival, so you can get there and nap a little.

Thanks everyone, looks like just heading straight to Haifa is the best idea. Good to know the trains run through the night. Appreciate the help!
