I liked the Fauzi Azar Inn. I stayed in a large private room that could sleep five. The location is great and giving out free water, coffee or tea, cakes and fruits throughout the day is a good idea.
The ‘free’ tour is only recommended if you have plenty of time as it is mainly a praise of what the founder of Fauzi Azar Inn contributed to Nazareth (which is a lot) and visiting shops that donate money to the orphanage project of the tour guide.
In order to generate more guest nights, the inn promotes day trips. I did one suggested trip to Arbel Cliff. The inn suggested that this can be done by bus. The explanation provided by the inn says ‘climb the hill until you reach the entrance to the national park’. The fact is that you need to walk 1.5 hours on the paved road with traffic beside garbage that drivers threw out of the car to reach the national park. And to return, you need to walk back taking another 1.5 hours. In my opinion, this day trip by bus is just not worth walking so long on a boring road. It is a pity that the inn must rely on misleading descriptions to generate more guest nights.
