the house was perfect-airy, spacious, beautiful, with everything we could possibly need (including shampoo/conditioner/shower wash, fresh fruit/yogurt/pita etc). The owners were friendly and accommodating, it was a pleasure meeting them and hearing their stories. It was a little confusing finding this location at first, as we were unfamiliar with the area, but it's ultimately in a great location; close to... More

Joy and Evan are wonderful hosts: very friendly and ready to help. They take time to provide you with good tips and essential information on what to do and visit in Safed and in the surroundings. Both apartments are renovated in an old stone house with nice bed and furniture and a small kitchen area. The decoration and renovation is... More

We stayed here for a shabbat in order to experience Tzfat. Could not have been more wonderful. Location is perfect - steps away from the Jewish quarter and the artist studios. The hosts are helpful and warm, and made every effort to help us get the most of our tzfat experience. The rooms were wonderful - 1 large and very... More

The house was perfect for our group of three men traveling to Israel for some learning. Great location, really nice kosher breakfast items supplies as well as local, fresh fruit which we did not expect. And the hosts were wonderful - friendly, knowledgeable, and knew where to direct us when we needed direction. Price was very reasonable and hope to... More

I was traveling with 2 friends and we stayed in their smaller unit which was big enough for us and very beautiful. There is a nice courtyard with table and chairs. The hosts were very friendly and informative. They also have a larger unit that is also very, very nice. The location is a short walk to everything.

Very kind & gracious hosts. They made sure we had everything we needed for a comfy able stay. Beautiful rooms, comfortable beds. We were able to arrive by bus easily, it is well located. Enjoyed walking from there to visit galleries. Felt very "at home" in the space and very secure and private as the guest rooms are within a... More

This place is romantic in appearance. It is entirely stone and the fitting are high-end. If you like this and want to pay over the odds for it, fine. If not, you will find it located up a back alley, off-hand in its approach, despite an apparently welcoming manner. The provision for DIY breakfast is limited to the point of... More

We are so sorry to hear that you were not satisfied with your stay here. We try very hard to make our guests' visits as comfortable and as enjoyable as possible. As far as value for money, our prices are competitive, and even on the modest end of the spectrum compared to accommodations of similar quality in the Old City... More

We loved our (too short) stay in artist quarter guesthouse and in safed. The TA recommendations are spot on and the place and the owners are great. Highly recommended and would return (for a longer stay) without hesitation.

We highly recommend staying here, unless you are in your honeymoon. Who honeymoons in Safed anyway? We stayed a few nights in the smaller room (for 2), which BTW is spacious and airy (with great attention to detail). It has a small fridge, a “kitchenette” area, with an electric kettle, etc., and a separate bathroom with a good shower. The... More

Safed, Tsved, whatever you call it, this is a truly special place. Filled with mystical energy and spiritual power, Tzfat is not to be missed. And the perfect place to stay on your visit to the center of the Kabbalah universe is at this very special guest house. We felt instant connection to our innkeepers and immediately enjoyed the genuine... More
