This is the best place to stay in Safed. Beautiful home with an amazing view.

Right in the center of everything. Perfect!

“central location, close to all major attractions"


“central location, close to all major attractions, although a bit of walk from bus station. big and spacious room with a view. maintainer Marla was a super sweet lady with great recommendations of what to see and where to eat:)”



Leonard Cahan (United States)


Situated in a Wonderful Location

This apartment is situated in a wonderful location in the center of Tzfat. It's down a lot of narrow steps from the street, and parking nearby is hard to come by, but Marla, the owners' agent, is very helpful and accommodating. Inside, some modernization and updating are needed, but that should happen soon, and it will be a lovely place to stay.

Humble and Blessed from Safed Experience

“Still feeling humble and blessed from the Tzfat (Safed) experience. Jacob offered outstanding service and the home / flat was comfortable and functional offering a serene, relaxing and studious environment nestled within the heart of the most Magical, Mystical of cities. The views and light are glorious, the city of Tzfat is an experience to be lived beyond words... תודה רבה”

The Best Location in Tsfat and The Room Itself was also Absolutely Beautiful

Jacob couldn't have been more helpful he really was great and Marla was the absolute sweetest and made us feel at home. The location of the room was probably the best location in tsfat and the room itself was also absolutely beautiful. Thank you Jacob.



Valentina Schiaroli (Spain)

Locatie, een trap verwijderd van Jerushalaim straat."

“Locatie, een trap verwijderd van Jerushalaim straat. Marla, de manager is erg vriendelijk. Erg mooi uitzicht.”


Justin Polgar (Canada)
Great experience and amazing view from window

“Marla maintained the property and was an amazing host. She helped us out whenever she could and was very nice about everything. The spot is right by the bus station and close to any sights you may want to see in Tzfat! Marla was also great with suggesting places to go eat. Great experience and amazing view from window!!!”

Great old Tzfat flavor

This quaint apartment gives a very nice flavor of Old Tzfat. The location can't be beaten. The owners were very helpful before we arrived, even giving us a written guide of the area. The on-site person was great as well. And the price is great! I stayed here for 2 nights with 2 adults and 5 young children for a slightly chilly spring visit. We would stay here again for the character and great location. The apartment consists of one nice sized bedroom with a bigger bed (queen or full?), a small table, and a couch, a second very small room with a couch, a folding bed, and a wardrobe, and the main area. Because of the size and closed-in feeling in the small room, we all slept in the big room. The owners were great about helping to accommodate us, so we ended up with two bigger mattresses and the couch, which worked out for us. The owners provided us with the second bigger mattress, and they were very helpful, so ask if something is not quite what you need and see if they can help. The pictures have been updated and are accurate as of this review (Nov 2015). The main area has a small sitting area with couch, a small kitchen with minimal items in it, and a dining table with chairs. The bathroom was a little sketchy, with a little bit of a trick to the shower. There was wifi, which made my kiddos happy at the end of our long days of walking. The less good points: The kitchen isn't very modern, and it would not be well equipped to really cook in. But to purchase some items and store them for our short stay, it was perfectly adequate. I did need to clean the refrigerator better to feel comfortable using it. In addition, the apartment has a somewhat old feel, with a few of the outlets a little loose - but very authentic. The entry right outside the apartment was always very wet, for some reason. Last, getting to the apartment requires using many stairs (not unusual for old Tsfat, but tough for a strollers - something to keep in mind as you are packing!) To be clear, this is not a luxury apartment, but it is definitely full of Tzfat character. We loved our two night stay - all 7 of us!

Good Value for Money

“Marla and staff were excellent with a super friendly welcome and suggestions on what to do. Good value for money.”



Christian Naef (United States)

A good experience

Thank you for the flexibility of our check in (which was for us the end of a very rushed trip). Host was Excellent: provided guides, information and clear communication. Their kindness and extra effort made or travel much easier. We had a very nice and peaceful stay. Had we known it would be like that, we would make the same decision again! It was so nice to experience the peace and safety of your beautiful country in a beautiful mountain setting. I did dunk seven times in the spring down by the graveyard, we had a nice time in the park at the top of the hill, and we had a truly marvelous time on the "jesus boat" at Ginosar. Marla was very pleasant and friendly, please convey our thanks to her as well. Owner has graciously taken our input for improvements that we thought important. I had done a previous review and mentioned the trash and disrepair of the surrounding community, but have since learned that it seems to be common to the country, and has no bearing on this rental.

My Impression of My Staying at Jacob's Place

Greetings, people! I'm happy to share my impression of my staying at Jacob's place. First of all, although it's a modest apartment its location is just great if you feel like traveling for the central bus station is close by (10-15 min walk). Second of all, following the previous issue, all the holy spiritual and sightseeing places are just two steps from Jacob's, i.e. the Ari Mikveh, the cemetery with all the tzadikim waiting for your prayers, all the synagogues are also near as well as the Alkabetz street aka artists' str. Third of all, you should also take into your account that the neighborhood is religious so please mind your manners and outfit. And this fact gives you a bonus if you stay for the Shabbath, as they sing all the profound songs and niggunim all day long almost ))) Fourth of all, I'd like to say a few words about the building as it's a pretty old one and belonged to a very influential family in Safed. And the last but not the least: Jacob and Angela are very hospitable, helpful and friendly people, and I highly recommend them and their place to you.

Cheer up! Blessings

Wir Hatten Durch Die Optimal Gelegene Wohnung Die Tolle Möglichkeit Safed

wir hatten durch die optimal gelegene Wohnung die tolle Möglichkeit Safed und den Norden Israels wunderbar zu erkundigen und einen Eindruck vom Leben in Safed zu bekommen. Marla hat uns sehr nett empfangen, und sich sehr nett um uns gekümmert was durch den Feiertag gar nicht so einfach war. Ebenso danke an Jacob, der weitsichtig im Vorfeld schon für einen reibungslosen Ablauf gesorgt hat.

Service: 5 Star

Service: 5 star. Dealt with property manager - Marla. This was a last minute reservation as my previous booking let me down at 11th hr. Marla was beyond amazing to say the least. she ensured I had everything I needed was more than accommodating. Location: 5 star. i lived in this city many years ago so know it well. This is in the very center, of the very center of the city - yet its quiet. For locations - it just doesn't get any better than this.

Everything Was as Described

Everything was as described - great little place, good price, nice location for getting around old town Tsfat. If you want charm instead of a perfect hotel room, this is for you. The place really added to our Tsfat experience. I found it very comfortable, with the lovely stone walls that you see in the pictures, and nice wood floors. It's reasonably big, with two bedrooms and a kitchen/sitting area - and has high ceilings, so it feels roomy, but cozy at the same time. And personally, I loved the stone staircase to get to it - so Tsfat! Marla is great - thanks for everything, Marla! And Jacob got back to us immediately on all our emails. I would definitely stay here again.

The Apartement Was Clean and Cozy

We had a great time in Safed. It was perfect for us to stay in Jacobs apartement for two nights because we wanted to explore the surroundings. It was very quiet because of Shabbat, so everything was closed and there were nearly no cars driving. Jacob had us well informed about how to get there etc. Marla welcomed us, showed us the apartment and told us which synagogue we could go to. The apartment was clean and cozy.



Marielle Lagers (Holland)

Perfect Location

Perfect location in the old center. Straightforward rooms, nice wooden floor. Friendly landlord met us in the main street and did all possible to explain the place and make us feel comfortable.

place and make us feel comfortable.

The Location is so Good For The Artist's Area

“The owner communicated with me directly before arrival and also after I left. THE LOCATION is so good for the Artist's area. Price for value is fair. One should not expect the "Ritz" but overall is good.”



Merav Ankori (Israel)

Thanks very much, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your place and would definitely stay again and recommend it.
Thanks again for your hospitality and may we only hear besurot robot,

Sam Cohen, 

We recently stayed at Old City Stones in Safed for Shabbat and were more than happy with the accomodations. Jacob, Angela and Marla were very accommodating as well. Would highly recommend Old City Stones for anyone looking for a cozy home away from home to spend shabbat in Safed.

Theodore Koepf, 

We really enjoyed our stay at old city stones. The accommodations were comfortable and there was even fruit, yogurt and cake provided. I would definitely recommend it.

rachelle reingold, 

This place is in a very central location for those interested in the Old City of Tzfat. One downside if you bring a personal vehicle is that there isn't any free parking nearby, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. The agent, Marla, was very kind and helpful, and the apartment itself was great to stay in. A very quiet location, very spacious, the pictures describe it quite accurately. Lots of restaurants and shops only a short walk away. Also close to a hilltop park with great views, including Lake Galilee and the surrounding hills fading off into the mist. Lovely!
