The Ruth Rimonim Safed
The Ruth Rimonim Safed is a very picturesque hotel built on the site of a 17th Century Khan or Turkish Inn and is part of the Rimonim group of hotels. Located in the Artists Quarter, on Tet Zayin Street, it is in easy walking distance of all the sights and is an ideal place to stay for a romantic getaway.
The hotel has a total of 80 rooms, and each guest room is unique. The delightful garden rooms all have their own terrace, while the modern rooms in the new section have spectacular views of Mount Meron. The Rimonim has also Deluxe rooms , both of which have a Jacuzzi bath in the bathroom. The hotel also offers a spa, and for business travelers there are meeting and conference and events facilities .
Meals are served buffet style and there is a wide selection of both hot and cold appetizers, main courses and desserts. With so much food to choose from it is almost impossible to do it justice. The breakfast alone will probably get you through a whole day's sightseeing! And as for the evening meal, if you stay at the Ruth Rimon for any length of time you could easily find you've put on a few pounds by the time you get home.
Exploring the extensive grounds is very relaxing and there are lots of nooks and crannies where you can sit and read a book, talk, or just admire the view. There is even a hammock and a swing seat hidden in the gardens where you can enjoy a romantic evening watching the sunset.
The Swimming Pool And The Spa
The outdoor pool is open in summer and even if you don't want to swim, lying by the pool is a great way to unwind. There are also a good variety of treatments on offer in the spa, which is open all year round, where you can pamper yourself and relax.
Due to the layout and nature of the hotel it is not particularly suitable for someone who uses a wheelchair, especially if you are traveling alone. To get to the charming garden rooms you need to go outside on stone paths which may be a problem in inclement weather if you are unsteady on your feet. Although the staff are very helpful and will do their best to accommodate your needs, it's best to check with the hotel to see if it meets your requirements before you book
