The location of this inn is such that one can see the beauty of Safed without ever having to leave the premises of the inn! Whether from the loft window of our room, or the patio, which was perfect for eating breakfast or sipping tea, we had a breathtaking view of Mt. Meron and the surrounding rolling landscape. The breakfast... More

The Artists' Colony Inn offers phenomenal accommodations in an outstanding location. Immaculately maintained by Danny and Susan Zahavi who politely give you guidance and advice and then encourage you to wander amidst the mystical community of Safed. Pastries, cheeses, fruits, etc. are all local and fresh. The bed was luxurious and firm. Perhaps the most comfortable bed I've ever slept... More

What a delightful spot. Clean, fascinating rooms. Views out of this world and amazing sunsets. Quiet gardens, calm, relaxed atmosphere. The Zahavi's could not do enough for us. Food was fresh, healthy and delicious. Great hosts, always smiling and calm. Eager to explain history and share their experiences . Looking forward to another visit to the Artists" Colony Inn.

If you're lucky enough to find one of the 4 rooms at Artists' Colony Inn available for your Zefat stay, book it quickly. This is a wonderful, warm, charming place, with hosts to match. Susan and Danny are exceptionally hospitable and caring, and do everything possible to help you make the most of this unique town and the surrounding area.... More

Danny and Susan were genuine, warm, helpful hosts - and Susan prepares a great breakfast! The room was lovely - everything worked as advertised. We simply can't say enough good things about the place. If you are looking for a special place to stay while in beautiful Tzfat, stay at this inn.

Great position, fabulous rooms (Only 4 I think), brilliant hosts (Danny and Susan are just first class), and overall, just a great experience. Breakfast is really good, and Susan is very attentive to special requirements (Veggie, Vegan, Celiac etc) If your visiting Zefat, this is a must!

I don't even know where to begin. I am home in New York from Israel for just 2 days and The Artists Colony was the single loveliest, warmest, most surprising, most elegant, most comfortable hotel/B&B experience I have ever had. I'm 56 so I do have some traveling with which to make comparisons. Let me start with David + Susan,... More

The place is a wonder! Large vaulted rooms some of which date to the Mamelukes rule of Sefad, victorian furniture, crimson and velvet drapes on doors and windows, airy verandas with misty views of the Galilee mountains, located all, small [7 rooms] in the middle of SEFAD'S artist colony. Inviting? That was just the surroundings. The place is run with... More

A modern loft suite in an ancient dwelling in a very old city. Where ancient wisdom and Kabalah began, I ate and slept in extreme comfort. An awesome b&b. It's like a laid back Jerusalem. Loved it. This is my gateway from now on!!! Thank you Jeff, Susan and Danny!!! Awesome!!!!
