Good view, bad hotel

Posted Jul 19, 2014
Pros: Only the view from the room.
Cons: Nearly everything except for the view and the balcony.
Location: Beautiful old town of winding alleyways, artists galleries and historic places to visit. As it's on the top of a mountain the atmosphere is cool.
O-live Pelech Harimmon has a beautiful view from Tsfat, an atmospheric hilltop town in northern Israel. The balcony is a great place to admire the view. The hotel though is not good. Our toilet didn't work. The hotel person fixed it once. It broke again and then it wasn't fixed again, even though we complained. So we went a night with a broken toilet. There was no hot water and we were able to only take cold showers. When we had breakfast the next day, we complained to the hotel staff and she said she was sorry to hear about our problems with the room but didn't offer to help. At the breakfast I had the apple juice but it was so watered down it barely tasted like juice. Lastly, we asked to have a taxi pick us up to take us to the bus station upon checkout. Instead the hotel staff gave us a number for a taxi company that didn't work. When I complained she said it wasn't her fault that the number didn't work. Because we had a lot of difficulty getting a taxi we missed one bus and had to wait for another. I would give this hotel a miss. There are many other hotels and guesthouses in Tsfat. The town is definitely worth visiting though.

Needless stress

Posted Jul 3, 2014
Pros: LOCATION! Large room.
Cons: Some English courses for the staff, if they want international travelers.
Location: Touring of religious sites, shopping for religious articles and/or art. Tsifat is small, so you can reach all of the sights within a 15 minute walk.
Had a heck of a time finding the place. Google Maps told us we had reached our location while we were still a couple of blocks away. The hotel couldn't give us directions. Drove around town a couple of times before we finally found it. It might help to have a second sign in English. Room was quite spacious with the beautiful views others have written about. My son generally complains about sofa beds, but deemed this to be the most comfortable he ever slept in. Finding breakfast was a nightmare. It's in another hotel a 5 minute walk away, but I couldn't find it, and no one on the street knew where it was. After looking for a half hour, I stopped in another nearby hotel and had them call for directions. After that first time, it was easier to find. It's outdoors, and there isn't enough shade on a hot summer day. They serve omelets at breakfast, but you have to know to ask. And the only coffee is instant.

Moder, clean place to stay in Safed

Posted Jul 3, 2014
O-live has very nice, modern, clean, large rooms all with great views. The building itself is small with less than 10 rooms making it very quiet, and the location is good. The only downside is that breakfast is in the courtyard of another BnB about 5 minutes away, and the courtyard could do with some more shade.

Tsfat in the winter

Posted Jan 5, 2014
Pros: Good location. Clean accommodations! Curious about how accommodate peole with handicaps. I had difficulty with the stairs.
We enjoyed our accommodations in Tsfat. Wasn't sure what to expect. Cozy accommodations. Good location! Was disappointed with breakfast at Maximillian's Went there about 8:00 a.m. and it was closed. People need to eat before they go on the road. It should be open at 7 a.m.. Weren't able to use our vouchers.

Wonderful botique hotel

Posted Oct 14, 2013 on Hotels.com
We never met anyone from this hotel, but that was fine. They gave us a code to get in and told us to leave the keys when we left. The room had a fantastic view of Safet, you could see all the way to Galilee. We were right in the heart of the artist section of Safet. The rooms (we had a friend in a 2nd room) were clean, spacious, and comfortable. This will be my 1st choice on my next trip to Safet.

Sensational View

Posted Sep 28, 2013
There was no room service and no staff at all. Had to wait outside until someone came to let us in when we arrived. But once inside, the room was better than expected, very modern, comfortable and nice. The view was inspiring. Really fantastic with a balcony to enjoy it from. Thumbs up in that department. Because we only stayed two nights, the lack of staff and service wasn't a big deal.
