“Hard to find, but beautiful room in gorgeous setting”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

I keep saying this about our recent trip to Israel, but this is not necessarily a place for non-Israelis, so a bit of Hebrew helps. It's not the easiest to find--it's behind a private home with the street address 107, and we had to search for it for a bit. We had the Olive room, a huge room with a balcony and a jacuzzi (!). Very comfortable bed, lovely view of the mountains around. Spotlessly clean. A short walk up the alley behind the hotel to the Ruth Rimonim Hotel for our buffet breakfast (included). We also went there for a quick buffet dinner--didn't see many restaurants around the artists area aside from falafel stands. We were the only guests in the hotel that night, and the desk keeper trusted us with the key to the entire place. Also, she leaves after 6 pm, so if you're checking in late, make special arrangements. No elevators--but only two floors, and the lack of elevators is more than made up for by the beautiful 2nd floor balcony views.

Room Tip: You can check the rooms on their web site--we had the Olive, which while big enough for four (we had...

Booked 2 rooms: both were spotlessly clean, very calm and quiet, lovely modern bathrooms. One room had a wonderful jacuzzi that was thoroughly enjoyed. The other had a spectacular view from the balcony - a great place to spend a lazy Shabbat afternoon. Lovely touch to find milk, juice, bottle of wine and a fruit platter waiting for us. Well situated, easy access to restaurants and Friday morning market. Highly recommended! Voucher for breakfast was at RImon Hotel - about 7 mins away along quaint streets, was delicious - something for everyone. Even booked in for Shabbat supper. Enjoy - we did!!

My husband and I stayed at the Old City Inn in November 2012. The room was immaculate, bathrooms were modern and very high class. We stayed in a room that had a jacuzzi in the room and it was spotless. The room is a lot better than the pictures online. There was a bottle of Mehadrin wine, large fresh fruit platter, coffe, tea and a fridge stocked with milk and bottled water. They included a voucher for breakfast at the Rimon which was worth waking up early for. Although the hotel is not Mehadrin, we spoke to the mashgiach and he pointed out the foods we should avoid. Most of the food was in fact Mehadrin. As far as location, you couldn't ask for better, it is short walk to artist colony and right at the tip of new city where all the restaurants are. Service was great. To all those traveling to the holy city of tzefas, this is a great place to stay.

We recently stayed at Old City Inn. They were very accommodating to our late check in and check out. The room,quite large, was fresh,clean, and gorgeous. The whole place is charming and exquisitely decorated. It was nice receiving a bottle of wine,fruits, milk and juice, in addition to the coffee and bath stuff. Location is great and the views from the balcony were just awesome. We had a wonderful stay in this luxurious inn. We would definitely recommend it to friends and stay there again!

excellent service - very personal.Wonderful view.Room was very big and clean. Excellent breakfast at Rimonim Inn - wished I could have eaten more ... but there was no room left!
Very well situated in center of town at the edge of the Artist's Quarter. Will definitely - most definitely - stay there again. I will highly recommend this place to my friends and family.
The only criticism I have is that I could not figure out the air-conditioner remote!

Room Tip: any and every room is good

The place is rather a guest house the a boutique hotel. The room we stayed in, was freshly renovated and carefully designed, trying to combine contemporary and heritage .
The highlight of our room ( don't know if its in every room) was the hot tub . Ours however didn't work well, still it was nice romantic gadget to have...
The view from the balcony is owe some ,
Mounts of Galil....
The need to go to another hotel for breakfast ( rimonim) was annoying a beat...
As I said earlier the room was good but something was missing... Might be the somehow cold service at the front desk...
Anyway for a short stay, or a romantic weekend, old city inn would not be a bad choice, especially given the other choices around
