Artists' Colony Inn
Ranked #2 of 40 Safed B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 August 2013

When you enter this beautifully restored stone B&B, you will be eagerly and graciously greeted by a very hospitable couple (Danny and Susan) who take great pleasure in ensuring that you have a wonderful stay. From an assortment of teas, fresh and dried fruit, and other delectables available 24 hours a day, with breakfast delivered according to your schedule, you will enjoy as much or as little conversation as you wish, but you will get many and diverse (religious, secular, and neither!) tips for where to explore. (And if you are really in luck, you might even get door to door service for a fabulous hike!!) Our room looked exactly like the photo. Very nicely appointed, clean, comfortable, and great A/C! No better location as well. Be sure to have breakfast sitting high up overlooking the valley. We have stayed elsewhere in Tzfat, now we know there is no better place.
Thank you Susan and Danny.

My husband and I spent 2 nights here for our 30th wedding anniversary. The Inn is in a old renovated building that has funky different levels with interesting arches, nokes and . passageways. There were grapevines growing on pergolas all over the place, and at the end of July when were were there, the vines were bursting with clusters of delicious table grapes that we picked and ate while we looked over the view of Mount Meron in the distance. Also though the days were hot, the evening were cool, crisp and wonderful.
The Inn is right near the old city and you can walk everywhere.
Our room was small but pleasant, and most important the bed was extremely comfortable.
The only downside was that the shower - bath (or mini jacuzzi) was in the bedroom. So when I came back from my early morning jog I couldn't shower without waking up my husband.
Perhaps some of the rooms have separate bathrooms.

Room Tip: Find out if you can get a room with a separate bathroom.

this Inn was very sweet. The manager Danny and his wife Susan were gracious, hospitable and very helpful. The room was very beautiful with the flavor of Israel. The only complaint was that the room opened into the courtyard and we had to keep our windows closed so to have privacy. The deck overlooking Safed was a very nice place to kick back, have a glass of wine and watch the sunset. I highly recommend this Inn!

Room Tip: ask for a room not open to the courtyard.

Our family of five stayed here for three nights, including over Shabbat. We liked Tzfat the town, but what made the stay special was this B&B. Danny and Susan were instant friends, the rooms and common areas were aesthetically gorgeous, and the location and views were spectacular.

Vacations with a family can be tiring, and one week into ours we decided this place was our vacation from a vacation. Even our high-tech and multi-tasking teenagers appreciated doing nothing, having no plans and just enjoying the scenery and interesting people who stay here.

Thank you Danny and Susan for inviting us into your home both figuratively and literally.

PS - Susan is a wonderful cook, especially for those with dietary restrictions.

We spent one night in this beautiful quaint hotel, situated close to the main street and the artists' colony. Danny and Susan were welcoming and made sure that we had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Their personal approach added to the enjoyment and special experience of our time in Safed. The rooms are interesting and the attention to detail was impressive. We especially loved the little balconies situated around the property where one can sit and enjoy the view and a drink, watching the sunset. The traditional Israeli breakfast was outstanding, and there was a cosy lounge where one could help oneself to hot drinks and pastries at any time. We would definitely recommend this property and would stay here again.

Room Tip: All four rooms are different, with interesting features and are all well situated.

It was 10:30 pm on a Saturday night and Danny, the resident manager was pouring over a map with a guest helping plan a local tour. This is but one of many examples of how Danny and his wife Susan went far beyond the call of duty to make guests feel welcomed and appreciated. Susan cooked amazing breakfasts. There was fresh fruit and healthy snacks available all day. Our room was perfect, everything worked!

I highly recommend this inn for anyone looking for a warm and pleasant environment. And of course, the Inn is situated in the middle of the Artist Quarter in Sefat.

Room Tip: Send an email prior to your arrival and ask what is available.
