Salt of the earth

Posted Mar 10, 2016
Location: Tzfat is itself fascinating, a center for Kabbalah studies since the 16th century, with artists' shops and lots of soul.
We chose the Safed Inn as our home base for exploring the upper and lower Galilee area. The location was perfect, high up in the mountains, cooler, forested, quiet. But best of all, innkeepers Riki and Dov were just wonderful to us: warm, welcoming, helpful and sociable. By the time we left, we felt as if we had made new friends we would want to introduce to the rest of our family. The accommodations were homey rather than fancy, with comfortable beds, free wi fi, access to laundry facilities, and in-room tv and coffee/tea making supplies. We chose the Israeli breakfasts and also had soup, salad and fresh bread every night for dinner. Wow! Riki makes her own cheeses, breads, fruit conserves and liqueurs, and is a wonderful cook. She and Dov gave us maps, directions, and advice on what to visit. The Safed Inn wasn't lodging so much as a home away from home.

It truly was our pleasure - we enjoyed every minute we spent with you both. I wish that you lived closer so we could visit more often - meanwhile, we will await your next visit and hope that it is soon.

Quiet and nice view

A bit out of town which can be a good or bad thing depending on what you want. Great value. Nice accomodations. Would stay again!

Great place just outside Sefat.

Posted Jul 2, 2015
Great little oasis on the hill above Sefat. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast was fabulous with homemade breads and jams. There is a kitchen available for use and a sauna and hot tub. We would definitely go back here.

Lovely Inn

Posted Apr 10, 2015
Pros: This is a very good hotel for the price.
Cons: I would've loved a hair dryer in the room, but that wasn't a deal breaker!
This is not a luxury hotel but it doesn't try to be one. The beds were extremely comfortable, the owner available and helpful, and the location nice and quiet. It was just what we needed! We would definitely stay there again.

Great value, tranquil and charming

Posted Nov 21, 2014
The innkeepers, Ricky and Dov, are gracious and helpful–they went above and beyond to attend to all of our requests. The inn is comfortable and charming, with a lovely garden. Because the inn is located a few miles outside of town, a car is a plus. After spending the day in the hustle and bustle of sightseeing, shopping in the shuk and walking through the crowded streets of Zefat, it was a pleasure to return to this tranquil retreat at the top of a hill above town.

Wonderful stay at the Safed Inn

Posted Sep 11, 2014
Pros: Quiet, super friendly owners, rooms had all we needed. We right away felt comfortable. Highly recommend the Israeli breakfast.
Cons: I must say we had everything we needed.
Location: Safed is a few minutes away, great galleries, spiritual center going back (one of the synagogue is 600 years old). Great view of the valley/lake
I stayed at the Safed Inn with members of my family. After long walks in Safed streets we headed to the hotel. The direction we received were great as the GPS seemed to get lost. We were welcomed by the owner. She was SUPER friendly and welcoming. The rooms were perfect, bed comfortable, quiet, and large enough for comfort. Water was in the fridge. We had called ahead to request the Israeli breakfast. I think this is one of the rare case were, although the picture showing the spread looked nice, the actual food was actually even better: fresh homemade bread, cheeses, eggs, vegetables,... We skipped lunch after it. I would add that listening to the news, some people might hesitate to travel to Israel. I can say I feel more comfortable here than in many places in the US.

Great, quiet spot, wonderful people

Posted 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 downtown

Posted 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.
