Warm and cozy in the cold of winter. Best toilet paper in Israel. Kosher friendly. Everyone should visit Safed, and this bed and breakfast reflects the authentic spirit of generosity and hospitality of this holy city.

There are so many things that my husband and I loved about our visit to the Artist's Colony Inn. Safed is a delightful place to visit with it's religious sites, handmade jewelry, and amazing views of the Golan and neighboring countries. Susan and Danny are gracious hosts.
