We stayed here for a night in a double room. Though they are in the midst of adding new rooms and renovation work, our room was neatly maintained. The staff was very friendly and was knowledgeable about the Old City of Nazareth.
The local tour was interesting but does not cover the usual tourist spots like the Church of Annunciation. It gives you a good feel of the city and life of the people making a living there but if you are looking for a tour that covers the tourist checklist, this one doesn't.
The inn is in the Old City which means you cannot drive your car upto their front door. So don't key in the GPS coordinates and try driving up :). We did so and landed up having our most exciting drive in Israel up and down some really steep streets (that would give the streets of San Francisco a run for their money) in the Orthodoxy area of the city. Just follow the instructions they provide and park in the road facing the Tishreen restaurant.
Internet is available and is free. They have a kitchen that you can use and there are usually snacks like cake available through the day. The breakfast is very average by Israeli standards and is not the grand breakfast they make it out to be.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay in Fauzi Azar and would definitely recommend it to travelers to Nazareth. The place left us wishing we'd budgeted another day for Nazareth!
