Artist Quarter Guesthouse B&B
Ranked #2 of 38 Safed B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 August 2012

We stayed in this guesthouse during the Kleizmer festival and loved it. The place is magical: a renovated old house with an inner courtyard, in a very nice part of town - the artist quarter. They rent 2 apartments - each of them was a separate stone house with a domed ceiling. We stayed at the smaller of the two (the other was occupied), and still managed to sleep 4 quite comfortably. The whole place is beautifully renovated with attention to every little detail, exuding a modern and ancient feeling at the same time. The hosts were great - very helpful, but also warm and friendly - we enjoyed talking to them so much that it was hard for us to leave.

Sefad is one of the most beautiful,spiritual places in the world and the Artist Quarter Guest House fitted in perfectly with its spirit. The room itself is in a little courtyard and the soaring, ancient stone walls, blue walls and silver candlesticks ready for lighting, felt just right. At the same time, it had good bathroom facilities, a very comfortable bed and a little kitchen nook. The Strauss family took good care of us - filling the fridge with boiled eggs, juice and yoghurt and bringing additional breakfast items in the morning as well. They also made suggestions about what to do and it was clear that they genuinely cared about us. There is ample parking close by, and the Guest House is located close to the main street in Sefad and to the artist's quarter. I cannot recommend this Guest House highly enough.

This is a beautiful place, and in close proximity to Old City of Tzfat. Joy and Evan Strauss couldn't have been nicer and more helpful, and the accommodations included everything one might need to be comfortable, including over Shabbat if one is Shomer Shabbat. My husband and I stayed in the larger of two apartments and it was perhaps a bit more than we wanted to spend, but smaller apartment was not available and we were entirely comfortable and relaxed while in the room. These are LIKE NEW accommodations, in beautiful and interesting (old) architectural spaces.

Joy and Even provided a clean room, at a good location and a reasonable price. What more could you ask for?

You should be aware of the following issues:
* The courtyard is under construction (but they made sure not to make any noise in the morning).
* No TV in room (not an issue for us but it's good to know).

When you consider the location, price and quality of the room these was hardly noticeable. We would strongly recommend this B&B.

My parents sent my brother and I on a vacation for a few days in Safed and we couldn't have felt more welcome or more at home! The Strauss' are the nicest people and did everything to ensure our stay was perfect. The room was stunning- a perfectly restored ancient room with tons of charm, a lovely kitchen we ate breakfast in, and a sparkling bathroom. Thank you for taking care of us and we truly recommend this place to everyone!

From the moment we got there we felt at home. They went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed our stay. They were amazing to help us find what we were looking for and get around. They are perfectly located in the heart of Safed. We cant wait to go back!

My wife and I are in our 60's and from the U.S. Our Israel visit was the result of months of on-line research and input from family, friends and Rabbi. The highlight of our visit was Tzfat. Joy & Evan (both excel in Hebrew and English) created a haven that should not be missed. Evan, a psychologist with a great warmth and calmness about him, took the time to guide us to sites we would have never found on our own and gave us a unique and refreshing perspective. Joy exudes a tremendous sense of peace and harmony and they have two incredibly beautiful children.

The space they created for you/us is rich in architecture and design that somehow magically helps one center and relax. They are on grounds and centrally located and provide simple but plentiful breakfasts. Our final morning my wife had a relaxing and therapeutic massage from Joy and I took a stroll to Ha Ari Mikvah (sorry, men only). Be sure to take a towel and at least a few shekels for Tzedakah. Best city and best place to stay in a 3-week visit that covered Jerusalem, Eilat, Masada, Haifa, Tel Avi, a Kibbutz, Lower & Upper Galilee and Kiryat Shmona.

Room Tip: Tips in general when visiting Israel: Keep all papers/documents together and easy to locate... Never...
