My wife and I stayed here during our visit to Safed. What an amazing stay we had. The Strauss family (owners) were so helpful and kind, making us feel so at home. The room was clean and neat and the bed really comfortable. The guesthouse is well located and easy to find using their directions, which we received upon booking.... More

We loved the ancient structures and art and felt like we were part of the history. We also loved the newly renovated clean American feeling in the whole unit. It was the perfect balance of old and new. Our family also used the quiet courtyard for breakfast and sitting, which feels very private. The family creates an open feeling, but... More

I just returned from another visit to Safed. Once again, I stayed at the Artist Quarter Guest House. This time, the smaller studio was available - and it was spectacular. Everything is just perfect - including the owners. The place to stay in Sefad.

We were on a whirlwind tour of Israel during Passover week. There were four of us, and we were delighted with this B and B. The owners were lovely, and the 100 year old dome house was a unique and peaceful in Safed. Breakfasts were generous, and we greatly appreciated the beauty and peacefulness of the home. But Safed itself... More

We booked 2 rooms for us and our 12yr old daughters and stayed for 3 nights: - The rooms are as amazing as the pictures show and more - you truly feel like you are in a medieval setting, yet with all the luxury to make your stay great. - Our hosts were very friendly and knowledgeable, helping us navigate...

We spent 3 nights here with friends. The Strausses are wonderful people who run a beautiful little B&B here in the old city. They provided marvelous breakfasts and recommendations. The rooms are amazingly restored stone structures. Tzfat is a very special place and this was a great place to experience it. I hope to return one day

My friend & I visited Tsfat in March 2015 and had the good fortune to stay at the Artist Quarter Guesthouse located at 43 Simtah Yud Zayin, Artist Quarter, Tzfat. Tsfat is very old and can be a quite complicated because not all roads allow cars. Clear, thorough and accurate directions to the guesthouse were included without request in the... More

The Strausses have a lovely little facility here. Their personal attention to detail and to their customers makes this a pleasant place to stay. The apartment itself was lovely - a 300-year-old building, modernized to be comfortable for the middle-aged traveler. Breakfasts were delicious and full of energy. Definitely the nicest place we stayed this trip (T-A, Beit Shemesh, Tsfat,... More

My wife and I travel to Israel once a year and one of our priorities this tiem was spending at least a few days in Tsfat. I was looking, primarily, for a location that would keep me close to most of the shuls as well as the Miveh HaAri, so it wouldn't take me more than 20 minutes to get... More

Joy & Evan's B&B suite was gorgeous and spacious. It was beautifully decorated with old world charm with modern conveniences. A fantastic place to stay to experience the history, beauty and spirituality of Tzfat. The guesthouse is located right in the heart of the Artist's Quarter and close to all the historic synagogues and the Old City attractions. To top... More
