My husband and I came to Sfat to spend Shabbat. We loved the Artists Colony Inn right from the moment we were kindly greeted by staff members. Our room was absolutely gorgeous! It was so clean and very comfortable. Danny and Susan the managers were giving, caring and very funny. There were snacks and beverages available all day as well... More

We are leaving the Artists' Colony Inn tomorrow and already I'm feeling homesick for this lovely place. Our room (the "Lianna") had a private porch, a jacuzzi and a reading loft. The hosts, Susan and Danny, were SO helpful in helping us plan our travels and we had a wonderful day today after following their suggestions. Breakfast is just right... More

Danny and Susan make the most wonderful hosts - thoughtful, caring, but not intrusive. This peaceful little b and b in Tzvat has lovely views of the mountains but is near to the artist's colony and is in the old 'arab quarter', very near the old 'jewish quarter'. I can't say enough about this little inn - the beds were... More

My wife and I spent 3 nights at this very small inn as part of a 3 week trip around Israel and southern Jordan. Our room included a private entrance, a loft with 2 comfortable chairs, a table and chairs outside the front door, and lounge chairs. The room had an unusual layout, but it provided plenty of space to... More

My wife and I spent 3 weeks in Israel of which 4 days were in the beautiful peaceful city of Tzfat. The Artist Colony Inn was one of the highlights. Terrific accommodations, clean, roomy, great views and privacy when needed. What made our stay the best was the way Susan and Danny Zehavi treated us. To say they are outstanding... More

My husband and I could not have been more pleased with the hospitality extended to us during our stay at this charming inn. Susan and Danny provided an excellent opportunity to learn about Safed and the surrounding locale. Our morning breakfast was an extraordinary taste of local flavors and the conversation was the highlight of our stay. Consider staying here... More

We spent just one night at the Artist's Colony Inn in Sfat, but it was an absolutely wonderful stay. The accommodations are beautiful, but a small part of why we are writing this review. What made our time so very memorable was the special treatment from our hosts Susan and Danny Zehavi. Their care was more than professional; it was... More

You cannot go wrong with this wonderful gem. Beautiful setting, beautiful old building, brilliantly updated. Arriving at the Artist Colony Inn is like stepping back into time, but with all the amenities of the the 21st century. You can have your breakfast high on a secluded balcony overlooking the green hills. The hosts, Susie and Danny, are the key that... More

With 18 foot ceilings and solid stone walls, Artist Colony Inn is a bit of ancient Safed. Our room had a balcony overlooking Safed, a protected courtyard, and a second-level sitting area. We had a jacuzzi tub and plenty of room to walk around. There is a heat pump/air conditioner in the room, plenty of blankets and a very comfortable... More

Beautiful B&B. Not easy to find, but once you get there all is forgiven. Lovely room: spacious, clean and comfortable, lovely linens and towels. Large shower with two rainheads, plenty of room to dance around if you so choose. Susan's homemade breakfast is worth the trip by itself. If you are lucky, shakshuka will be on the menu. The french... More
