Pros: Personable hostess, large room, comfortable, AC works well. Dehumidifier controls slight dampness. Lovely balconies. Cons: 28 step walkup to Inn entrance, with your luggage, from the parking area. Breakfast provided, but if you should make the mistake to be there on Shabbat, you're out of luck for dinner. Fortunately,we were able to find a 280NIS buffet at the Ruth...

Shalom. Thank you for your feedback. For anyone who reads this, please call us when you are on your way and we will meet you where you can unload your suitcases from your car. It is a place about 50 yards/meters from the inn and has only 2 steps to the inn. As for the dinner options on a Friday...

Definitely tricky to find but the directions provided by the manager were accurate. Breakfasts were excellent with breads from the local bakery and local fresh fruits and vegatables. Snacks, coffee, and tea were always available. Rooms were very clean. The location of the inn made it very easy to explore the old city in Safed. Would definitely go back again!

While it was a bit tricky to find the Artists Colony Inn after dark, Susan's directions were accurate and we were greeted warmly. We had two rooms in our party and both were beautiful, clean and quiet. Each room had a private entrance from a courtyard outside of the common eating area. Snacks, coffee and tea were available 24 hours...

We stayed here for four nights. Originally I was hesitant about visiting Safed (I'm more of a Tel Aviv or Eilat beach person...) however changed my mind imminently after setting foot in the Artists' Colony Inn. This beautiful gem provided a wonderful base from which we ventured out to explore Safed. We had an amazing experience both visually and spiritually.

We only stayed one night in Artists Colony Inn in Sep 2013. We'd like to stay more longer in here. The guest house is the best choose in this town. Have a good view to see the sunset. The hosts are always willing to give us advise based on our request. The breakfast was very nice and some are made...

I stayed at the Artists' Colony Inn in July 2013. I was there with my wife and 21 year old daughter. The experience was awesome. David and Susan were wonderful hosts and were extremely helpful from carrying luggage to tips on what to see and where to eat. We stayed in the large room with the private entrance and large...

The owners really take pride in their craft, and are welcoming and generous! Aside for mild inconvenience of no wifi in the amazing spa like room, nothing else was lacking! Views are great, breakfast beyond most people's expectation (even for a b&b, which it is not), and to top it all off - a short walk distance from the center...

We stayed at the beautiful Artist' Colony Inn hotel of Tzfad for three days this week of Sukkot. The rooms are beautiful, the service excellent, and above all the friendliness of Benai and Jeff, owners of the hotel. They are always willing to advise and walk around the area, and how can you enjoy the stay in this beautiful area....

We arrived to a wonderful, friendly woman named Susan. She was great, just to put that out there. Parking was easy. Breakfast was extraordinary- made by Susan. Very talented. Rooms were clean and super funky. Only downfall was the the shower was in the room...and that was a little tricky to figure out. On the last day out of trip...
