“great little place with perfect location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2011

Our stay at the Rappeport Guest House was lovely. Laurie is the consummate host, and made our visit as comfortable as possible. Although the two bedrooms and bathroom were tiny, my husband, two grown children and myself slept well.
The location was right in the Artist's Colony and a stone's throw from everything. Besides her role as guest house proprietor, Laurie works for the Tsfat Tourist Bureau and was a big help with suggestions for sights to see and shopping. For our next trip to Tsfat we will certainly contact her to arrange a stay.

What a gem. Nothing fancy, just a clean room with one incredible amenity, Lauri. She arranged for shabbat dinner, hosted a shabbat luncheon, invited us to a community Purumspiel, arranged for a private guide and much more, she became our friend. She knows everyone in Tzfat, and everyone seems to know her.

We spent four nights at the Rappeport House. It was a great way to learn about Tzfat, Galilee, and Israel We can't imagine going to Tzfat and staying any other where else.

We stayed at this delightful zimmer for over shavuos and wished we could have stayed longer. Our room was cozy, clean and attractive with a small bathroom and a second, smaller bedroom that we used to store our bags. We ate most meals at a table in the quiet garden of this residential neighborhood. The price fit our budget and the ambiance fit our needs. Even better than all that was Laurie's attentiveness to our needs. She worked hard to help us find services for the second day of Shavuous -- not an easy task in a place where just about everyone observes just one day. She helped us find a seudah and a place to study in English at night. She even brought us a piece of cheesecake she had made. As far as I'm concerned, she made her home in Safed our home, too.

A great space just outside of the hustle-and-bustle of the artist's colony in Tzfat (but only a 4 or 5 minute walk to the heart of it). Near restaurants and shops, beautiful views, and interesting historic sites. (Laurie can certainly provide recommendations for some places to wander on your own, and possibly even recommend a guide, if that's your thing.) Laurie was unbelievably helpful, and even let us borrow her iron to tidy up our shabbat clothes, which were a bit wrinkly from three days in backpacks.

The space itself: bedroom with comfy full/queen bed, another small bedroom if necessary, private bathroom and shower. There's a mini-fridge (perfect for storing snacks for shabbat) and the space has its own private entrance.

It was just what we needed to get away and relax for a few days.

There are many places to stay in Tzfat, but none are as convenient and cozy as this charming guest house. Located steps away from the main downtown street in the middle of the artists' colony, Lauri Rappeport's comfy inn is the best deal you can find in the Holy City, a clean, comfortable and quiet accommodation that is just perfect. The two air-conditioned rooms offer comfortable beds that can accomodate a small family, and the outside garden offers a perfect place to sit in the sun and read quietly. I have stayed there quite a number of times, using the location as a base for all my travels up north with my children, and I always will.

Stayed in these 2 adjoining guestrooms for a week in August. I had one room and my 2 teen girls had the other. Beds are comfortable. The 2nd room where the girls slept is only as wide as the two beds (actually one bed and one mattress on the floor. ) There was a little table and dorm fridge in the bigger room and we all fit around it for breakfast and some dinners. The air conditioner in the larger room is strong enough to cool both rooms if you keep the doors between them open. The bathroom is tiny (think airplane or RV) but did the job, and there was plenty of solar-heated water for the three of us to shower. The entrance is in a charming courtyard, in a beautiful, richly historic area, with stone streets, buildings and courtyard walls, and just a long staircase away from the main shopping and restaurant strip. I felt privileged to be staying there, and would stay there again. Host was very friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable of the area.

Tsfat is a beautiful part of Israel with quaint narrow roads and paths and an incredible Jewish history. we stayed in Lauries B&B for our stay in Tsfat. Laurie was very helpful and accomodating. The room was clean and quiet. A definite must to contact if you are lucky enough to visit beautiful Tsfat
