Artist Quarter Guesthouse B&B
Ranked #2 of 38 Safed B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 May 2014

The accommodations were our most comfortable in Israel. The hosts, Joy and Evan, were so helpful and friendly. The rooms are beautiful. Breakfast was tasty and plentiful. One of my daughters and I enjoyed the best massage ever from Joy. We highly recommend Artist Quarter Guesthouse. We hope to return to Israel in 18 months to 2 years and plan to stay here again.

Tip: We were a family of four staying 3 nights. We placed all our clothing/items in one suitcase for our Safed stay while leaving the other cases in our car trunk. You reach the accommodation on foot a short distance so minimizing your luggage will make things easier.

The Artist Quarter Guesthouse was a fantastic place to stay while visiting Safed and the surrounds. Four of us (two couples) stayed in the larger unit for three nights. The apartment was lovely and adjoins a peaceful courtyard. Joy and Evan couldn't have done more to be helpful, gracious hosts. They know the area, and made excellent suggestions about where to go and where to get a good (take out) shabbat meal. I look forward to the next time we are in Safed!

We enjoyed our stay at the Artist Quarter Guesthouse. Upon our arrival, Joy asked us about our interests. We told her we are artists and interested in studying the Kabblah. She found us fantastic teachers and help set up introductions. My husband has health issues and she adjusted the breakfast to suit his needs. We stayed in the one room efficiency which was tastefully decorated and oozing with 200-300 year old character. I highly recommend the place to anyone considering a stay in Safed.

We have been to the Artist Quarter Guesthouse two times. Once on our honeymoon and once for the weekend. We had a wonderful experience! We have stayed in many guesthouses in the past, and would definitely rate this one of the best. The owners Joy and Even are very welcoming and friendly. They are always available and make their guests a priority, the houses are very homey and clean. It has a very artistic and classy appearance. You can tell a lot of thought and efforts has gone into making the guesthouses comfortable and welcoming. We had a great time and would defiantly go back.
Thank you Joy and Even!

Before writing the review I would like to say how welcoming the owner, Joy, is to her guests. The streets of Safed in the old city are made up of small alleyways and Joy gives very clear instructions to her guests as to how to find the property.
We chose the studio room which is a small room with a kitchenette and small shower room attached. There is cutlery and tea and coffee facilities in the room. I think that my issue was that I did not think that the guesthouse was value for money. We were provided breakfast when we checked in ie cereal, cake and hard boiled eggs. We were told that if we needed anything replenishing for the next day we should knock on Joy's door and ask her. However this is fine if Joy was in when we were in ir if one felt it appropriate to ask for food whereas my feeling was that Joy should have checked herself and replenished the food if necessary. When we came back no one had cleared up or made the beds which is fine if we were paying self catering prices but not as the prices we were being charged.
Like I said, the family Strauss are delightful and welcoming but the B&B was not value for money

It was lovely hosting and meeting both you and your sister. We are sorry to hear that you were not completely satisfied with your stay. We have taken your remarks seriously and we have made changes to our service. We now serve a hot fresh kosher vegetarian breakfast to our guests on weekdays, and on Shabbat and Jewish holidays we put a variety of food items into the room. Regarding room cleaning for multiple day reservations we now go into the rooms daily during cleaning hours and tidy up the rooms and replenish and replace items as needed. We hope that someday you are able to return and experience our service improvements first hand. We wish you well in all of your endeavours.

Friendly and helpful hosts with good knowledge of Tsfad, which places to see and where to eat. Our room was spotless, and in the middle of the Artist's Quarter. Would come back any time, what a lovely place to stay.
