Great ExperiencePosted Nov 25, 2013 on Hotels.com
Our stay at the Fauzi Azar was quite amazing. We didn't know what to expect, but the 2-star grade didn't let us expect much. That's one of the reasons why we were so pleasantly surprised when we walked in through the little door (it's low to make you bow, as in Arab custom) – the mansion is beautiful, clean, airy and exudes a very friendly air. The staff (comprised mostly of volunteers, as far as I know) is extremely friendly and eager to help. The inn is located in a very central location in the Old City and, while it can be a bit hard to find, especially at night (I highly recommend printing out the instructions they provide before arriving, the Old City streets are quite impossible to navigate), you feel in quite a different place while inside. They also serve delicious cake 24 hours a day, and I highly recommend taking the free tour they have every morning, which tells the story of the house, of how it became an inn (and in the process completely changed the face of the Old City) and of the many small businesses which are flourishing in the neighborhood. It's also a great central base for exploring Northern Israel, some 90 minutes from Rosh HaNikrah, 30 from Tiberias, and 60 from Haifa and Cesarea.

Characterful and comfortablePosted Nov 9, 2012 on Hotels.com
My best accommodation find in Israel - beautiful little hostel/hotel in an old Arab mansion, in the heart of Nazareth's old city. Delightfully friendly and welcoming staff, full of local information and enthusiasm, comfortable room, and delicious Arab breakfast. I thoroughly recommend staying at the Fauzi Azar Inn!

Great little place to stay in Nazareth.Posted May 5, 2012
It is a very unique hotel in the Old City of Nazareth and central to tourist sites within the city. The staff are extremely helpful and accomidating - customer service was excellent. There is wi-fi but it is not accessible from all rooms (though the signal is strong in common areas and the lobby). The breakfast was traditional Arab-style (eggs, flatbread, yogurt, fruit, zatar, cheese, salad) and was fresh and good. The only negative was our air-conditioner did not work well in our room. We did not say anything because the weather was not too hot, but in the middle of the summer this would be an issue. We would definitely recommend this hotel to others.
