Villa Galilee is a beautiful boutique hotel above zafad. The interior is very elegant in a classic European style. The pool is very nice and surroundings quite. The room is adequate but the bathroom quite small
Breakfast is not as expected for the price. The coffee is undrinkable and the choose of food not very attractive. Nice place to stay but the service not up to the price

The location of this fine boutique hotel in Safed is absolutely stunning with a breathtaking view of of the famous Meron and Tabor mountains as well as the Sea of Galilee. The air is clean and pure. The top rooms are great with wonderful sun terraces complete with Jacuzzis. Friendly staff. Maintenance could use some improvement.

We spent two nights at this hotel. It looks very nice from the outside when you first see it, however this is the only good thing about this place. The rooms are not too bad, but not that good either. The mattress and the pillows are terrible. The bathroom is average and relatively clean, however the faucets need more thorough cleaning, the ceiling has stains from water leakage. The lobby looks nice at first, but in reality there is nothing you can do there. The bar at the lobby is mostly inactive. The hotel advertises its chef-restaurant and sells fixed menu dinner which includes 3 courses and bread (drinks are extra). For the three of us we paid 535 NIS! The meal was awful, the dishes were filthy, the food mostly terrible. After complaining I got 150 NIS refund... The breakfast wasn't better. At the overall - not recommended. You can find better places, better food and better everything.

My husband and myself spent 1 night over the week end at Villa Galilee. The room was ok but no more. The view from the room was nice, overlooking the Sea of Galilee.
Breakfast was one of the poorest I had in Israel. Low quality food, poor choice.
The swimming pool was nice but it was too cold to stay outside.
The surroundings of the hotel have nothing nice and waking around was depressing.
Finally, price is very high as compared to what you are getting.
I would not recommend this hotel. There are so many nice bed and breakfast options in the region.

We stayed in the hotel for two nights part of a family weekend. Although the building is surrounded by a beautiful garden the location itself and view from the rooms is disappointing; overlooking some part of the city that are far from beautiful. The hotel lobby itself and public spaces are full of what appear to be cheap reproductions of classic paintings mounted in heavy classical frames, that give a feeling of a pricy bordel. Our room was comfortable and clean, although the sheet had an ink satin on it. Going down to the bar was also a disappointment as there was no barmen to serve , when one of the receptionists offered to help we realized they do not serve wine (only in bottles). we went for a martini instead but the the poor receptionist - through no fault of her own - needed instructions from us to find the bottle and on pouring the drink. On the first evening we had dinner at the hotel restaurant that was too average by all means. As the hotel is kosher on Saturday morning breakfast doesn't provide fresh eggs. To sum to pricy for what it was.

Room Tip: Rooms facing west are better
