Artist Quarter Guesthouse B&B
Ranked #1 of 40 Safed B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 7, 2013

This Zimmer is the perfect place for a romantic getaway or a family weekend, ( although we could have stayed even longer!). From start to finish this was a great experience. I initially called up Joy and Evan Strauss the owners in a slightly disorganised state as we had left it late to book anywhere as a weekend shabbat stay after a friends wedding in Tel Aviv.
The booking service was fast, efficient and incredibly helpful with joy sending me the most detailed road directions and anything else we could possibly require. We got the whole thing booked, accommodation, delicious catering, and a wonderful massage treatment in about five minutes!
On arrival we were really pleased with the suite. Joy and Evan have put a lot of thought into the decor and general ambiance of the suite and it really shows. Moroccan lanterns, a huge bowl of fruit including large grapes, and homely jars or granola awaited us. Beautiful and well picked art hung from the walls. It was very clean, with so many pretty touches. Our hosts could not help enough and recommended local artisans, food and walks for us. The suite is of a generous size with high cavernous ceilings. We went there with our 18 month daughter and literally could not have picked a better place. After our rather cramped Tel Aviv stay this was luxary.

Room Tip: Ask for the suite if you have a child

My first trip to Safed was almost 30 years ago.
I lived there for almost 10 years
and have been going back ever since.
This is a new place and certainly the best I have found.
You will truly "feel" Safed, while being close to everywhere you would want to go,
Your hosts will make you feel right at home.
Don't pass up this opportunity.

My wife and I stayed in the 2-room suite, with domed ceilings and original, exposed stone work. It is stunning and is beautifully decorated. The owners are very friendly, helpful, and accommodating. We couldn't recommend it more highly!

My adult son and I needed a place for a night in the middle of everything in Safed (Tzephat), and we found this zimmer/bed and breakfast recommended on tripadvisor.com

Many things in Israel are a hassle.....this is NOT one of them.

A beautiful, clean, bright room....huge ceilings with rough walls....like a grotto.....but clean......
Very welcoming, and neat.

Being in the midst of the Artists Quarter in the old city of Safed....Tzephat.....you have to accept the fact that you are not going to have valet service or a big parking lot in front....... But we only had to walk a few feet to the entrance. The owners talked us all the way in, on the phone, even though we arrived after 10 PM.

Breakfast was perfect, and we were able to daven (pray) at a local 6 am Minyan that was less than a five minute walk.

Perfectly located, clean, bright, and very reasonably priced with very pleasant owners.......A great value!! I look forward to returning.

Thank you,
Orrin Davis.

Wow amazing experience from start to finish. We stayed in both the deluxe and standard rooms and both were big bright and clean. High arched ceilings, stone walls with natural art work. It had the authentic Tzfat architecture with any modern luxury you can ask for. The price for such outstanding accommodations was far more affordable then any of the other competitors especially considering we went on a prime weekend. And the hosts Evan and Joy, wow amazing people the truest people you can find. I had gotten hit by a car the day we got to Tzfat, they took care of us and brought food and medicine and checked in on us to make sure we were OK. They recommended Doctors and brought tea and fresh pastries every morning. Thank you Evan and Joy and the Artist Quarter Guest House for making our trip so wonderful!

We had a great one night stay at the Artist Quarter B&B! The room had a great feel with its' stone walls and domed ceiling and was very well decorated. We had the smaller of the two suites - it was still very spacious and well appointed with attention being paid to small details. Our hosts, Evan and Joy, were fantastic and provided us with great advice about places to see and restaurants and took the time to chat and get to know us! The location is perfect - in a very quiet area but a few minutes walk from all the important and interesting sites in Tsfat. We would recommend this B&B for anyone visiting this charming town.

We just spent Shabbat in Tzfat. It is a lovely city and we had a great time, made all the better by our stay at the Artist Quarter Guesthouse. The room we had was large, clean, and maintained at a high standard, and had all the amenities we needed. The hosts were most gracious and helpful as well. The guesthouse is conveniently located near the Old City and all the attractions and sites.

The price and quality also make it the best value among B&B's in the city. Highly recommended!
