Villa Galilee
Ranked #2 of 5 Hotels in Safed
Reviewed 17 October 2017 via mobile

The Villa Galilee can be classed as a " very pleasing boutique " hotel with lovely views of the hills. Its main public spaces are very pleasing to the eye. The choice of artistic pieces, be they ladies' hats, wall hangins and even the warm color room area rugs add much to the " quieting- soothing" effects of the hallways and the small reception spaces. The service is friendly though the dinning space , specially when used for breakfast, is rather small and the service rather lacking. A shower, in addition to a bathtub, would have been a very welcoming addition to those who prefer a shower to a tub.
All said, we enjoyed our stay very much and would repeat a visit but would choose a shower room if available !!!

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.
