I hate to write a negative review because the location is in a nice part of town and there was free parking, but feel that in this case it's necessary and warranted. Booked for two nights and was very disappointed with the degree of cleanliness and the quality of the room, especially given the price. The bed was two single-beds pushed together, with springs pressing out of the mattresses; the towels and sheets hadn't been cleaned properly before being re-used; there was hair on the pillows and dirty floors, and black mold lined the ceilings etc. Not to mention, the paper-thin walls made it particularly unpleasant to hear other people's conversations, toilets flushing, and kids crying through the night. If this had been a youth hostel -- and the corresponding price -- we would have been let down, but somewhat deserving. But frankly, the lack of energy spent in making this place hospitable was unacceptable. Perhaps in another era it was a nice place, worth the money. Try somewhere else until they get their act together.

I've been there with friends on the 8th of August 2018. we had booked 5 different types of room for a total of 12 people. I had asked for a economy room with garden view. other for a 5 beds room with balconade and city view. it all turned out to be a nightmare.... Finding the place is already very difficult but it is int he old city and it could have some value. The gardener not a real garden but a courtyard filled with strange contraptions and color light bulbs. But his is not really the issue. The manager immediately wanted to gather the group in the foyer and started explaining the city and the things we should do.. it was strange but it could have been a way of welcoming guest. Only when he started showing us the rooms we understood the stalling. The rooms we had asked were absolutely disgusting: my economy double with garden view was a small (3X2mt) room created from the space under a staircase. one bed and a tiny tint window (the door opened directly in the "garden" so I think that that was the idea of the garden view). The room for 5 was one room with a large double bed and then a much smaller room ( a kind of closet) where there were 3 beds, no A/C and no window. The other rooms were a bit better but not much. I forgot to mention the bathroom. Ion my room it was so small that I was not able to enter. Shower is part of the bathroom itself and does not have a door. The other bath were more or less the same. Considering that we had asked for different rooms we set out to try to get any least a discount. Once we stated the discussion the manager got very angry and at a certain pint refused to speak with some us at all. He asked for the full payment which we told him we would pay only after he had given us a receipt. This took 3 hours and he eventually face us a receipt only after we called the police.

Booked for one night because of location to bus to Amman, (good location overall in old city) easy walk to main attractions. I rented a car from Tel Aviv, when got to old city driving there was CHAOS, narrow streets, up and down, lots of backing up, so decided to get out of there and go return car and take taxi back, no cab wanted to drive there, finally got someone to take me and the ride was very easy but drivers get spooked by location because of roads. Owner met us a block away because no vehicles get to place, was very helpful with luggage, extremely friendly. It's a guest house, so don't compare it to a Hilton, room was clean, comfortable, you pay cash in advance, good breakfast the next morning, they let us have it before it was completely ready because we had to leave early. Very happy with my stay, the neighborhood is very safe to walk around at night even if dark and empty. Recommend this guest house for budget travelers.

I found this place using TripAdvisor but used Vitrage's website to reserve a room. As of early July 2018, you an only reserve a room from their website but pay for it when you arrive. I don't know how booking works on other third-party booking sites that Vitrage advertises on their website. One of my friends booked a single room via Booking.com and had to put in her credit card number but actually paid for the room when we arrived. Which brings me to my first point....ROOM PAYMENT! You would think that you could pay via credit card but you will likely pay cash. They have a credit card machine but they said it's "broken". My friend told me that some past reviews on Booking.com customers complained that they couldn't pay with credit card and had to pay with cash and that was months and years ago. I personally didn't see a lot of reviews that said come with cash so I thought it would be hit or miss. When we showed up late at night they told us we had to pay cash, we had no cash. Then they told us they could take us to an ATM. We asked if we can do it in the morning and he complied. Morning comes and we were driven to an ATM then we were told that he (driver) needed to make a quick stop somewhere. One of my friends bursted out that we needed to be somewhere because who knows how long he would take. Thankfully it wasn't long. I would suggest making sure you get a receipt when you're paying for your room, especially when you're dealing with cash. I reserved an economy double room which supposedly was the same price as the single room on their website. He told me this was a mistake on their website but they would still honor the price. Then he said he wanted to put me upstairs in a double room so I had a view. The room he wanted to put me in was already booked and I really didn't mind the economy double room. Point number two....ACCOMMODATIONS! Since I was in an economy double room, it was fine with me. I did get to see the view from my friend's single room upstairs which does have a nice view. My room had a small window to the side of the building. I personally just needed a place to sleep and take a shower. My shower didn't have a shower curtain. The whole bathroom was covered in tile and was small so having a shower curtain may have been a little in the way. Just expect the floor to get really wet and maybe don't leave clothes in there while you shower. They have plenty of towels though. The AC in the room worked great and the double bed was really two single beds pushed together so it looked more like a queen than a double. Typically two singles together means a king but these single/twin beds were not that wide. Their breakfast was good and is a nice variety. It’s from 830am-10am. It would have been nicer if it started earlier if we wanted a slightly earlier start to our day but we planned accordingly. The outdoor seating area is very nice too. Third point....GETTING THERE!!! I didn't have data so I downloaded maps on Google Maps to use offline. Google Maps is not the greatest to use in Israel. If you can, use Moovit or Waze, that would be ideal. I was coming from the west so Google Maps took me to a back road (from Salezian St.) to Vitrage. It was a very narrow, steep, and windy way...I don't recommend. I couldn't even tell what street I was on as google didn't display streets once I was in the steep neighborhood. Instead we stayed on the main roads and google rerouted us. Also, you won't be able to drive right up to Vitrage. The closet you can get is to Ha-Bishop Square. You would have likely passed a Greek Catholic church to get there. Which brings me to my fourth point.....PARKING!!! I knew I was going to rent a car and drive to Vitrage so I messaged (on their website they have a chat bubble - never got a reply), emailed, and called to see if they have free parking. They're easier to get a hold of via phone. I was told yes. When I arrived, I was told that it is not safe to park in the square or alley around the Greek Catholic church. Instead, he directed us to a nearby parking lot within walking distance. We parked there after 2am and saw a ticket machine but it wasn’t on. When we got there in the morning (about sometime after 9am), the man (with limited English) told us that the cost was 24 hours 60 NIS, over 8 hours to 12 hours 45 NIS, 4-8 hours 30 NIS, and up to 4 hours 15 NIS. Because we couldn’t get a ticket the night before and were not parked for over 8 hours, we fought a little to not get charged the over 8 hour cost. I think he finally got fed up with us and let us pay 30 NIS. The parking prices were not ideal so we decided to park in the alleyway near the church for two nights. We saw another rental car park there too and nothing happened to either of our cars. We just made sure to have absolutely nothing in our car, even hats or empty bottles. My guess is that they don’t like to have guests park in the alleyways because people live in the buildings around Vitrage and other guest houses but even late at night there was some parking. Most residents reserve their parking spaces with metal bars that hang from the wall. Overall, I got what I paid for but I wouldn’t stay there again if I’m in Nazareth. I picked them because they had better pricing than Fauzi Azar Inn and it was perk to have my own bathroom. They’re communication was so-so. It’s not the best and the worst.

We were also surprised that we had to pay cash, when the Booking website said the hotel accepted credit cards. Other than that, the owner's son helped us drive around to get to the hotel because the roads are VERY narrow. It was very appreciated. The room was clean and the a/c worked well. The location is great, we were walking distance from pretty much everything. Good value for the price
