Artists' Colony Inn
Ranked #2 of 37 Safed B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 9, 2009

My wife and I Sara did a mini-honeymoon in Tzfat and we discovered a great boutique hotel in the Artists' Colony that we had to tell people about. The Artists' Colony Inn is run by Anglos Jeff and Benay Katz, and is clearly a labor of love for them. The rooms were exquisitely designed, the personal attention we received was unsurpassed, and the breakfasts we were served were superb. If you are planning a quiet and romantic trip up North, make sure to check it out.

My trip to Israel was my first and for my nephew's Bar Mitzvah. We had been in Israel for about 1.5 weeks before arriving in Safet. As my family occupied all four rooms, I was able to see all of them -- each one nicer than the next. I appreciated that the construction of the rooms maintained the natural archways and exposed brick keeping with the historic significance of the area. The rooms were impeccably clean. The breakfast each morning was different than the day before, varied, tastefully presented and plentiful. Staying in this Bed and Breakfast was a welcome change to staying in the bigger hotels previously in our trip. We visited five synagogues on Friday night before sabbath -- each one within walking distance and with a different flavour. Visited several local artists and pottery makers as well as the candle factory. Highly recommend The Artist's Colony as a place to stay and Safet as a unique travel experience.

Artists Colony Inn is a "MUST STAY" if visiting the North. Actually, you should make it part of your trip to Israel because this was absolutely one of the highlights of our 2 week trip to Israel! Our three teenage kids were hestitant to stay there (before we arrived) because they are somewhat spoiled staying in only 5 star hotels throughout Europe and the US. What a suprise when we got there and my kids couldnt be happier! There were wonderful treats left out everynight (and all day) in the common area. The Inn was decorated unbelievably!! I wanted to hire Benay and Jeff to come to my house in California because they have such incredible taste in decorating! There was bottled water in the room (free-how refreshing), free internet access with our laptops, tv and a gorgeous outdoor area. I really never wanted to leave the Inn because I just loved "feeling" the ambience of this incredible place.

The owner Jeff was our guide as well and was incredible! We went to shabbat services in the Artists Colony which was just a few minute walk. I found this fascinating! If you can be there on a Friday night, try because it was really wonderful to experience shabbat there! It is so centrally located and you can easily walk into the main part of town (the artists colony-which is spectacular). Both Benay and Jeff made us feel so comfortable and there every wish was to make us feel special and fall in love with the place and we did!

My husband and I have been all over the world and stayed in many different and wonderful places and this is definately one of the best places we ever stayed at. The owners are absolutely delightful, helpful and went way out of their way for us. The place is so relaxing and dreamy to look at and I seemed to inspect every area of it because it was just so unique and done first class. I cant emphasize enough how SPECIAL the Artists"Colony Inn is!
