I and my husband have been to this hotel in January 2012. Nobody is out and nothing is opened on Shabbat in Safed, so be prepared to drive to another city to find a restaurant. The atmosphere is very eclectic: there is a big variety of Asian and European artifacts all over the castle ( used to be many centuries ago ). The staff and the owner, who is a Cali private collector, were very welcoming. They've upgraded our room free of charge, which was a nice surprise.The big plus was a very good condition of the bathroom( great shower, good water pressure), we've been to many zimmers and hotels around Israel, so that mattered. AC, TV with many channels. There is an open bar with the variety of drinks, coffee, snacks, fruits. The restaurant is in the basement with the wine cellar and it's own draw well!
There is something else. As a very old place, which has been renovated, it still has some mysterious atmosphere to it. We came very late evening, the light everywhere was subdued. The "Angels" paintings - the owner's hobby, added even more spiritual feeling to it. You have a sensation as if they are "watching and following " you everywhere you go. You'll see them in every room. The owner has a very cute black cat, for some reason after couple hours walking around this place, I wasn't surprised to see a black cat. In the middle of the night the window opened wide and so loud that I jumped up on my bed. Was waiting for the morning to come with the TV on.
Nevertheless, I highly recommend this hotel. A well-run business, with the great food, service and a bit of mystery.
