why choose us

Old Fashioned Hospitality at its best….Israeli born, Dov Ruckenstein is a 4th generation hotelier, and the Safed Inn – also known as Ruckenstein B&B- has been a family run guest house since 1936.  Riki, his other half, is a chef and has also been working in the hotel business for the past 36 years….. they both still love what they do… and do it well.

If it’s helping you plan your day trip – where to go, how long will it take you…. Where you can eat along the way, they both are happy to give you their input.

They both will answer your questions – whether its politics, religion, cultural differences….or just where you can find a winery in the area.

The Safed Inn is very centrally located for visiting all of Northern Israel – within 1 hours drive of Akko, Nazareth, Tabgha, Capernaum, Tiberias, and Nature parks like Yahudiya,  Banias, Tel Dan, Nimrod’s Castle, Mt. Bental and Agamon HaHula, just to mention a few.

In short, if you are looking for a more personal touch on your vacation – the Safed Inn is the perfect spot for you.
