We arrived at the Fauzi Azar Inn, not sure what to expect -it was rated really low and yet was ranked the number 1 Inn/B&B option in Nazareth. It was an adventure to get there -not easy parking, small roads, and a very secret feeling doorway -which can have it's own charm. When we finally got there the ratings and reviews made sense. The Inn is a cool old building but is much more like a hostel than an Inn or B&B. There is some cool decor -but actually half the things in our room were broken. But the bathroom was newer and that was nice. The staff were very friendly and helpful -breakfast was a hodgepodge of different food items. My husband and I do stay in hostels sometimes -but the price that is charged for the Inn is disproportionate to the service that is given. After further conversations with our friends who live in Israel we found out that this can be a quite common experience. So overall -I liked Fauzi Azar Inn, but it was too expensive for what it is.
