Great, quiet spot, wonderful peoplePosted May 25, 2014
Safed Inn is ticked away on a hill outside the old city. Riki and Dov will make your stay very warm and welcoming. The Israeli breakfast is incredible. I would definitely recommend staying here! And I hope to make my way back here soon!

On top of a hill, away from the downtownPosted Mar 21, 2014
Pros: Very quiet and a good value.
Cons: Some of the vintage furniture might be updated.
We stayed 1 night on a windy and chilly night in mid-March so we did not use the spa. Rikki was very helpful with directions and recommendation of a restaurant that was open Friday night. She also recommended stopping at Rosh Hanikra on our way to our next stop in Akko. The continental breakfast was adequate after a large dinner.

Pleasant stay, wonderful hostsPosted Mar 15, 2014
Pros: The hosts were welcoming, eager to help, and a wealth of local information.
Cons: This is not a modern sterile glass-and-steel chain hotel. If that is your taste, you won't like the character of this Inn.
Location: Located on the edge of Safed. 30 minutes or so from major sites along the Sea of Galilee, about the same distance to a major migratory bird stop-over.
We spent a couple of nights here as part of a two-week trip around Israel. The trees and plantings on the grounds of the Safed Inn (aka the Rukenstein B&B) had suffered quite a bit of damage in a recent rare heavy snowfall, but it was easy to see at first sight that the owners care for their establishment and work hard to keep it in good condition. Lovely retro touches throughout (lava lamps!) The Inn is on a quiet street; it looks complicated on the map, but the GPS had no trouble finding the location. The room was nice, the breakfast was great, and the hosts (one a California native, the other an Israeli) were super helpful in their suggestions on where to go and what to do in the Northern Galilee & Golan region. Facilities include WiFi, a computer room, a lounge, and a small kitchenette.

Safat InnPosted Mar 1, 2014
Terrific experience. The proprietors were exceedingly helpful. They recommended the best restaurant, got us our taxi, and we're ever ready to dispense some meaningful advise. Our stay was very restful. The grounds and room layouts enhance a relaxing privacy. Would definitely stay here again the next time we are in Sfat.

On Top of IsraelPosted Oct 30, 2013 on Hotels.com
I was delighted with my six night stay in the Safed Inn. I enjoy a simple lifestyle and so was very happy with my room. The adjacent community kitchen and common room with internet access were quite useful. The best part of the stay is the hosts, Riki and Dov, who are ready to answer your questions and help you on your trip. In addition Riki loves to cook and prepares excellent breakfasts as well as her homemade liqueurs, especially the walnut. The Safed Inn is a great location to begin a trip in any of the four directions in Northern Israel.

Wonderful owners!Posted Jul 21, 2013
We stayed for two nights and enjoyed the quiet, relaxing atmosphere. Rikki and her husband were wonderful hosts and very helpful with advice on where to visit in the area. The rooms could use some upgrading but were clean and comfortable.

Gluten-Free Friendly and CleanPosted Jun 24, 2013 on Hotels.com
My husband and I were so pleased with the service at Safed Inn. We both dine Gluten-Free, and the hosts bent over backwards to accommodate us, providing us with an enormously nourishing and delicious Gluten-Free meal. We already know we'd like to stay there again when we visit next year.

Nice PlacePosted Jun 10, 2013 on Hotels.com
The pictures are actually a realistic portrayal of the Hotel. Some extra nice touches like bottled water in the room for free. The owners make you feel welcomed.

Riki rules !!!!Posted Apr 29, 2013 on Hotels.com
It is a wonderful place to spend a few days in a mountains. Located on the outskirts of Safed (Tsfat) -- the cultural center of the Northern Israel. Golan Heights are 1/2 drive and hiking is just outside - weather permitting. Riki and her husband Dan are fantastic people -- warm, professional and very accommodating. Dan is a native and Riki lives there for over 40 years, so there is Nothing that would not know about the area. Their beautiful daughter is the star of the place -- warming your eyes and Riki's liquors are warming your heart. Visit and Enjoy.
