Myrtle the Turtle is a lovely guesthouse. The rooms are clean, safe and very welcoming. Laurie the owner is accommodating and very helpful. It's very easy to get to all the fabulous places in Tzfat from this guesthouse.
I highly recommend it! Next time I'm in Tzfat, I want to stay there again!
We were looking for a quiet and budget-priced guestroom in Safed and that's what this was. It was clean, bright, cheerful and located right in the center of the main part of the town. We could wander around at all times of the day or night and access everything by foot. The room itself was warm and cozy. We had a lot of questions and the owner was very knowledgeable about the area and was able to either answer all questions or point us in the right direction. Great value for the money.
This was the perfect place for us to stay. it was simple and fit nicely in our budget. We loved sitting out in the courtyard in the early morning hours before setting off on our days of sight-seeing. The neighborhood is picturesque and the guestroom itself was light, bright and pleasant. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a cozy place to stay in central safed.
We loved the Tzfat, its history and the people who value and share their ancient history and traditions with visitors. The enviorenment is beautiful, you can inhale and breathe the cabbala spirit in almost every corner. Laurie was an extraordinary guide and host and took us with her to share such a special experience of the jewish spiritual world. And, of course, she invited us to taste and share with her and friends a wonderful shabbat lunch. Thanks so much Laurie, hoping to meet you again!
This was the perfect spot to experience the city. The owner gave us lots of good advice about where to go and what to do and even took us on an evening tour of the city. We met the neighbors and enjoyed a whole Shabbat experience, including a dinner, with a local family. The accommodations were cozy, clean and pleasant.
