“......with a view!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2014

The manager / owner totally ignored us throughout our stay. We kept trying to get a response from her....smiling , saying hello ....nothing , thats not good enough in any hotel. The staff are friendly and helpful. the breakfast was excellent , plenty of croissants unlike the previous review( we agree on other things though). The pool is lovely , clean and sadly not open to guests when you most need it , late afternoon and early evening after a trip. The massage was ok but I agree with another reviewer that the spa room is not so nice. What can I say about Safed ....it gets seedier and poorer looking ....a real dump! I first came here 26 years ago and loved it ,its sad to see how its degenerated through neglect. the surrounding country looks beautiful , stunning views everywhere. I will visit Northern Israel again but try the Golan or Galil next time.

Room Tip: My room had a lovely view south towards the Kinneret which I would recommend ,it was quite high up...

the most beautiful hotel i have ever been in israel, and i have been in many. it looks like it was taken from province, france, and landed in israel.
every detail is so pretty and every spot of this hotel is well designed and planed - even the hallways.
the room is luxurious and very romantic. everything is clean and tidy, and we had amazing view from the large window.
the pool is beautifully designed as well.
i enjoyed dinner and breakfast in the hotel restaurant and it was wonderful.
the only problem was the massage i got - i didn't enjoy it much.
above all - amazing place, worth the money.

Room Tip: ask for a room with a view. it's very recommend to eat in the hotel restaurant.

We arrive to Villa galilee for one night to relax and rest after a busy week
We found it very worm and pleasant.
We got a marvels penthouse with a great view and enormous balcony with nice Jacuzzi bath.
The room is worm, clean and well equipped: Minibar, Tea area, big flat TV, very wide bathtub and also DVD and nice collection of movies that you can borrow free at the front desk.
Also there Spa department and verity of spa& beauty tretments.
The dinner at the restaurant was very nice and tasty, very good service and good atmosphere. Breakfast was also very good.
The hotel is very quiet and located in a great area of Zafet, very close to the art area and the center of the city.
Very recommended for travelers who's looking for place to relax and explore the North area of Israel.

Room Tip: upgrade for the penthouse the balconey and the Jacuzzy worth it!

The best things about this hotel are the decor and the service. The owners are very present. The decor of our very spacious room and of the common areas is really lovely with tremendous attention to detail. The room was spotlessly clean. A few details could be improved. The towels were a bit old, no longer fluffy. The supper was good but not amazing. The soup was a bit bland. The main course was tasty but the presentation lacked visual appeal. Overall, highly recommended.

Instead of spending a night in a different hotel every day while we explored the northern part of Israel, I read about this hotel and decided to book it for several nights as a base. We drove our own car from coast to coast and explored the local area as well and each evening returned to this lovely spot. It was definitely worth the extra bit of driving to get back to quiet, clean rooms (we rented three with 2 separate beds in each room--) and greet each morning with a delicious buffet. At one point, I asked if there was any oj --- the next morning, fresh squeezed orange juice was ready. It was such a pleasant difference from the ghastly Dan Panorama chain of hotels where quantity over quality rules (I do not recommend any of them!). The staff was friendly. The decor with its many artist reproductions was also entertaining. I highly recommend this spot -- do use GPS to find it.
