We spent four nights here in May 2011. Sister Herminia was wonderful. She helped us to get connected with a tour to Nazareth, gave good hints for navigating old city, and woke up at all times of the night (1:15am and 5:50am) to make breakfast to go and send us on our way for a tour and when we had to go to the airport. There was a catholic pilgrimage group while we were there, and we ended up joining up with them a couple of times throughout our stay. The rooms were basic but clean. Breakfast was cereal, fruit, sandwiches, yogurt, and tea/coffee. It was a great location right outside of demascus gate, and it felt very safe (there was a gate to get into the building, and they had a security camera and would buzz you in). Would recommend it as a safe, economical, friendly and clean option.
