The Setai, Tel Aviv is located right in the heart of the city, steps from Clock Square and the city’s coastline, at the historic site known as the “Kishle,” which was originally constructed by the Turkish Empire to be a prison on the site of a historic Crusader fortress.
The Setai will offer guests 110 rooms and 10 suites, with several styles to choose from, including:
- The Presidential Suite: Extends more than 1,000 square feet and includes a master bedroom, a guest room, a kitchen with a dining area and a balcony.
- A selection of Deluxe, Premium Plus, Executive, and Premium rooms that also have balconies with views of the Mediterranean Sea.
To restore the “Kishle” properly, the team at Nakash commissioned comprehensive research and preservation efforts to pay homage to the historical site and keep its ancient roots intact. The Israel Antiques Authority conducted archeological digs that unearthed remains dating back to the Crusader period through the Ottoman Empire, remains that were then carefully restored.
Original wooden ceilings, wooden doors, ironwork, and windows of Kishle were preserved as well, performed by experts in stone, iron, and woodwork to make sure it adhered to the original structures.
