Transportation and Travel
Haifa’s Visitor Information Center features visitor information on independent/group tours, festivals, attractions, hotels, dining, museums, galleries and entertainment.
The International Airport is the Ben Gurion Airport (TLV).
The fastest and most reliable form of transportation from Ben Gurion Airport is the train. The ride takes about 70-80 minutes. A train service is available from Ben-Gurion Airport, day and night. Information can be found at Israel-Railways web site, under "Schedules and Fares".
From station: "Ben Gurion Airport"
To station: "Hof Ha-Carmel" (first station in Haifa).
There is a service taxi or van service (called 'sherut') which departs whenever the car fills up, and takes you to Haifa for a reasonable rate of 115NIS ($30). Van service to Haifa or to Ben-Gurion Airport is provided by a company called "Amal" (Tel. 04-8662324 - 04-8676444) and can take you from the Hotel. Taxies should fill up fairly quickly. The travel time is about 75 minutes. The driver will usually drop-off passengers where-ever they ask in Haifa, so asking a drop-off at the Hotel is a good idea.
Private taxis from the airport to Haifa cost $80-100, but can be shared, and the price split, with a fellow participant.
Car rentals are cheapest if arranged from abroad. It will take about 75 minutes to get from the airport to the hotel with a rented car.
The bus is not very frequent and takes longer. The Egged bus company's website contains more details.
Direction to Dan Carmel Hotel
Address for taxi: 85-87 Hanassi Avenue, Haifa. Once in Haifa, it is recommended to take a taxi to your lodging from the train/bus station, for convenience. Again, a 'sherut' taxi is available (6NIS), or a special taxi can be hired ($15-$24). You may also use directions to Haifa and get a taxi directly to the hotel.
