Although the Grand New is a little bit off the beaten path- it was well worth the extra walking to get there. The hotel is located on the top of El Mutran which is a road but also a huge hill. Ask any cab driver to take you there - the uphill walk is pretty steep (downhill much easier- about a 25 min walk to city center; 10 min cab ride). I arrived and Wassam was extemely nice friendly and helpful. I received a ten percent discount at the restaurant next to the hotel -Diana's- which was extraordinary and I highly recommend eating there.
The room was nice with wooden flooring- a nice sized bathroom and a balcony overlooking Nazareth. This was the most breathtaking part. Because of the hotel's unique location watching the sunset over Nazareth was beautiful. If I there was one drawback it was that the sheets on the bed weren't the most comfortable - but this is Israel and for $75/night the price was right.
In the morning - I overslept but the front desk called me to tell that they had breakfast (included) waiting for me in the dining hall. This had never happened to me before and I was very thankful that they woke me up as breakfast was a great spread of vegetables breads and halvah.
All in all a great stay and a great experience.
