We spent three evenings at the Rappeport Guest House in Tzfat this past July. The owner was fantastic as we were given information about the town that one could not easily obtain from reading a brochure. Upon arrival we were greeted as if we had known one another for several years instead of just sending emails back and forth. From the time we settled in we felt at home. The room(s) were nice; we knew beforehand that we were not staying at the Ritz or any other plush hotel. Everything we needed was there for us including a more than adequate air conditioner as the days were very warm and humid. We slept comfortably. Yes, the bathroom/shower was a tight fit but this was made aware to us before we arrived; the web site and previous guests had spoken of the situation. Although there is a small bedroom off of the main bedroom we used the area only to store our luggage. One thing to note is that there are lots of steps to go up to the main road or, for that matter, to go anywhere in the small town. We managed. We were also told about the various restaurants in town and all of the shops and where to go and what to see. Our time and expenses were well spent. I would do it again.
