[edit] Hotel Site

The Rimonim Safed hotel sits on a site whose foundations, archaeologists believe, date back to Roman times. The building served as a Turkish “khan” -- inn -- in the 17th century and became a popular Safed hotel from the earliest days of the State of Israel. Its stone façade, rustic atmosphere and location on the western slope of the city, overlooking the Meron mountain range, has made it a popular Safed inn for foreign and Israeli visitors alike.

Guests can walk to the historical synagogues, art galleries and religious sites from the Rimon Inn which is located an approximate ten minute walk from the Old Jewish Quarter of Safed. The Safed hotel also invites guests to join their regularly-scheduled Friday night tours which provide detailed information about the town’s history and significance as one of Judaism’s “Four Holy Cities.”
