Comfortable, modest and centrally located in Nazareth with small rooms and A/C. Beautiful terrace on top and panoramic view. Food was modest but adequate and servers quite helpful. **A Hidden archeological gem in the basement, was well worth the stay alone!!!!
This historic convent is on a small street running up from the main entrance to the Basilica of the Annunciation and excellently placed for sightseeing. The tall building is wrapped around a large courtyard with tables and chairs and bouganvillea-clad columns, a nice place to sit on a warm evening. There's also a roof area to relax on with great views. The convent provides basic, spotless accommodation in a range of room types, such as a 6-bedroom dorm for just my husband and I and a tiny squeezy room for two of our friends. The luck of the draw. Furnishings are minimal but we had everything we needed, including a modernised ensuite bathroom. Breakfast was in a plain, brightly lit downstairs room reminiscent of school camps but provided good basic fare.
Most charming, simple and hospitable accommodations! Rooms are very simple with small showers, however the hospitality, beautiful grounds and chapel make up for whatever amenities the room may not have. There are no TVs, just family attentiveness and perfect proximity to the Church of the Annunciation. Meals here are outstanding! Family style and delicious with plenty to go around. I wouldn’t stay anywhere else when in Nazareth. The views from the roof are a nice treat in the early morning and evening.
It's a place where lots of tour groups hang out. The rooms are small, and incredibly hot until you're forced to open the window. Very small rooms too, which I suppose is a legacy of being a convert! Beautiful courtyard though.
Spent two nights at the Sisters of Nazareth Convent and was really impressed with the level of accomodation offered for a convent. As well providing accomodation, there was a lovely chapel on site too. Stayed in the new wing which was warm and modern. It did remind me of being in university accomodation, however. There was a lift to the second floor which wasn't expected but very welcome for moving luggage. The room was basic but spotless with really comfortable beds and a really good shower. No TV or hairdryers though. The blinds were incorporated into the window and electronically operated so gave 100% blackout, so no chance of being woken by the sun if you didn't want to which was great. There was a curtain over them for good measure! Breakfast was in a large modern dining room with a limited but acceptable amount of choice provided (cheese, sliced meat, eggs, arabic bread - all of which could be toasted perfectly). At night there are beers for purchase from the fridge, which is offered as a honesty bar. You can also bring your own in and sit on the benches overlooking the courtyard. The location is excellent, a minute away from the Church of the Annunciation and around 5 minutes from restuarants. Do bear in mind, however, that there is a 10pm curfew!…
