My Favorite Spot for Peace and Relaxation

Posted Jul 22, 2017 on Hotels
I first stayed here in 2008, and loved it so much I came back 9 years later. This will forever be one of my favorite places in Israel. Safed (Tsfat) is a quiet city known for its history and tradition; this B&B helps one truly embrace the solitude, quiet, peace, and rest that one seeks in a spiritual place like Tsfat. The B&B is not in the city center, but a few miles uphill, so be prepared to walk or drive to see the old city. I prefer the walk because it is so beautiful, but it is several miles and uphill on the way back to the B&B, so keep that in mind if traveling with the elderly or children, especially in the summer heat. The B&B itself is beautiful, with clean rooms and well-kept gardens, and an absolutely gracious and welcoming couple who run the business. Expect personal treatment, people who remember your name, and an outstanding breakfast (choose the Israeli breakfast option! Multiple homemade jams, spreads, cheeses, breads, you name it - I tried everything!). This time I stayed only one night due to other commitments, but wished I could stay for a week.

Charming but Dated

Posted Apr 29, 2017 on Hotels
The owners/proprietors are absolutely delightful and accommodating. However, the room was sparse, dated and the bathroom was uninviting.

I am not sure which room you were in so it is difficult to address the situation. Thank you for your input.

Wonderful experience. Had a fantastic stay!

Posted Jan 21, 2017 on Orbitz
Pros: The staff. The food. The grounds. The jacuzzi tub....everything!
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We enjoyed Riki and her husband and their openness and hospitality. The grounds were absolutely beautiful with so many nooks and cranny areas to enjoy. The Mediterranean Breakfast was incredible with all the homemade jams, cheeses and breads! We loved every minute and absolutely cannot wait to come back again!
