Situated between Arlozorov St. and Artists? Quarter St., in the heart of Safed?s OId City, stand three small boutique hotel compounds. Each is part of Olive Safed and is a short walk from the others.
Avney HaKhoshen, the second compound, is situated in an ancient caravanserai about 200 years old, which has been renovated and restored, while maintaining the sense of the original historical structure. This stone building is located in the Artists? Quarter, and it blends seamlessly into its surroundings, with Safed?s enchanting Old City above it, its alleyways. ancient houses, markets, galleries and artists? homes.
The three-story Avney HaKhoshen features seven rooms surrounding a covered central courtyard. The design of the rooms, a blend of the old and the new, was inspired by the breastplate worn by the High Priest when the Jewish temples stood in ancient times - a piece of jewelry of multiple significances, says the Kabbala (an ancient Jewish mystical text).Each room bears the name of one of the breastplate gems.
