If you are looking for accommodations in Safed with ancient charm and modern amenities in the Artist Quarter of the Old City of Tzfat, the Artist Quarter Guesthouse is the place for you. Quietly situated at the end of an alleyway, yet close to parking, this guesthouse is centrally located—just a few minutes walk away from synagogues, galleries, the main shopping area and restaurants. The Bed and Breakfast has a private entrance and a shared courtyard with outside dining. The guesthouse is beautiful, clean, newly renovated, and is completely set up for shomer shabbat/shomer mitzvot guests.
The walls and domed ceilings of the guesthouse are of stone, so you have a taste of classic Tzfat ambiance—complete with Moroccan lamps and beautiful stained glass in the arched windows and door. The airy rooms have incredible natural lighting, with curtains for privacy and for those who wish to sleep during the day. The guesthouse has two units, a one bedroom apartment and a studio. The one bedroom apartment accommodates up to five adults and the studio accommodated up to three adults. There is one “Jewish bed” in each unit that can either be prepared as one queen bed or as two twin beds. Additionally, each unit has high-end, extremely comfortable pull out couches that open up to twin beds with custom made toppers. There are dining areas in both units to comfortably celebrate your shabbat meal or work on your computer using the guesthouse’s free Wi-Fi internet connection. Central air conditioning and heating along with the thick stone walls regulate the temperature quite well.
The kitchenettes have windows looking into the courtyard, and are equipped with a refrigerator, electric kettle, shabbat hot water urn and electric hot plate. The kitchenette in the one bedroom apartment has a microwave. Both kitchenettes are stocked with coffee, tea, sugar, milk and a variety of fresh breakfast items. Glass dishes are provided as well as an ample supply of disposables to meet the kashrut needs of our guests. There are private bathrooms with soap, shampoo and conditioner for your convenience. To keep your belongings organized and out of the way there are separate closets to unpack your belongings, hang clothes and place your luggage. There are candles and candlesticks for shabbat, a braided candle and spice box for Havdalah, as well as water basins and cups for ritualistic hand washing.
