The Safed Inn is situated in a quiet area of Tsfat a short distance (10 minutes by car or taxi) from the old town. It is a 'hostel' which makes you feel at home. The owners are very personable and helpful, giving advice freely and with a great deal of knowledge. The breakfast is excellent, a great start to the day. The rooms are good (we had a three bed with 'en suite') but the beds are a little soft (personal preference!). The grounds and gardens are pleasant and add a sense of space. A great location from which to venture out into the old city.

What a nice small hotel. A good accomodation for a fair ptice, cosy, in the middle of trees and in a pleasant tranquillity. The innkeeper Rika shows you proudly her garden. The exzellent jams you'll enjoy at breakfast are home made by Rika and the frutes are from Rika's garden. If you want to know something about Israel, cuisine, traditions, just ask Rika. Perfectly in command of English she takes time and finds pleasure in telling you fascinating things. You will feel welcome. Plus sauna, plus hammocks inbetween roses, plus 5 min to Safed, plus 15 min to Kinereth... Just the place to stay and for us surely the place to come again.

We stayed at the Ruckenstein B&B (Safed Inn) for two nights this month. We loved it, loved the quiet gorgeous gardens and enjoyed meeting and chatting with Riki & Dubi. The [Continental] breakfast is delicious and way more than enough - we didn't need the Israeli breakfast!! The rooms are well designed and charming, with a coffee corner, refrigerator, sitting area, robes for the hot tub and sauna. Riki also helped us with a map of the city, driving directions and excellent suggestions. Be sure to try Riki's homemade liqueur - Nocino (walnut) & plum. There is free Wifi but was a little finicky in places. It worked great out in the garden. There is also a fully equipped kitchen for guests. There are grills in the garden and a little supermarket around the corner...
The location is rated average only because one has to have a car to get down into the city, otherwise it's a marvelous location - in a quiet part of the city.

We (2 couples 33m, 30m, 29f & 28f) spent two nights at the Safed Inn in April 2012 while traveling around in Israel.

Location

Although the location is a little bit outside of Safed, it's conveniently located, especially if you are arriving by car. There are enough parking spaces in front of the hostel.

The property itself is an absolutely relaxing place. They have a table tennis table, a jacuzzi, a sauna, common area with free internet and a bbq area. So there are a lot of things to do :-)

Rooms

The rooms are quite big, clean and very comfy. Although they are that new, we really liked them as they have somehow a personal touch. We slept very well, so nothing to worry about.

Food

The breakfast was of a good quality, especially the homemade jam.

Hospitality

Well, what shoud I say. Riki and her husband Dov are great hosts. Dov can provide you with great ideas what to do around Safed, especially for hiking. Riki is a very funny person. Both are doing their best to make your stay as comfortable as possible and I can promise that they achieved their goals :-)

Absolutely great hospitality!

Thanks Riki & Dov for the pleasant stay!
