We booked long time in advance for christmas. 6 weeks before christmas fastive dinner cost 180 ILS, 4 weeks later the price rose to 250, 6 days befor our arrival they charged 300 and a day later they aske for 330. Our friends that called the same day were asked for 350 ILS. They refused credit card payment claiming that they have a problem with the machine and asked that we will oay cash. I think IRS wouldlove them for that. they also were quite veuge as to exact room and made us suspect that suite (we ordered) was the same as a regular room in all aspects except price. this was a deal breaker. We cancelled our booking and spnt our money at a place that was honest and straigt forward.

Staying while I did Holy Land trip and they were so accomadating to everyone in our group of 25 plus. Beds were soft and bar upstairs allowed relaxing on down time, whether you drank or no. Location was great for large bus and guide to pick up. Good sheppard travel took care of all things perfectly.

This is a locally owned hotel overlooking the city of Nazareth. There are picturesque views of the city and of the Church of the Annunciation. It is a quaint place with many real good qualities. Very nice rooms, private showers, and good maid service. The food is exceptional. There is a buffet breakfast and dinner. Delicious food with a wonderful variety. The staff is friendly and very accommodating. Location is a plus. Very close to many to the sites one would enjoy visiting. Very nice stay. Higly recommend St. Gabriels.

The lounge and the breakfast room are very standard design and ornament. The breakfast food is really basic which is not a good taste in my opinion. But, the coffee is nice and aromatic. The room is not clean, a bit smelly with old equipment in it. TV is not working at all. Air conditioning is not cool enough so we didn't have good sleep quality. The aisle in our area and in reception area are smell cigarette smoke which is not good for our breathing especially for our baby breathing . Moreover, the inside hotel is not as expected as outside. But, the outlook hotel building is nice and since the hotel is in the higher level, so we can see nice panorama of Nazareth city from this hotel. Overall, I am not strong recommending this hotel for staying, unless, it is really difficult to find the hotel in Nazareth due to fully book.

Noisy, air condition very poor, food very average. Rooms are tiny and smelly. Beds are basically on the floor. Avoid if possible. Staff friendly but no one really knows what they are doing. Had a very noisy party going on as well....

Small rooms, small bathroom would rate this similar to a motel 6. It was clean and the AC worked. Hard to find due to poor signage in the town. The food was ok. While we were likely safe, we felt the room door was flimsy and the lock of poor quality. We stayed with a group of 20 couples and they all felt the same way. Would not stay here again unless we had no other option.

This hotel is a former convent. The building is not a very old building looks like it at most 100 years. It is a beautiful building with a magnificent view over the older part of Nazareth. The entrance is from the terrace, that means that you must circle the whole building to get there from the street. It is not possible to walk down to the old centre from the hotel. It is far too steep and no pavements or they are occupied by cars that think they are parking spots. You must take a taxi. The hotel rooms are spacious and at least our room had an extra bed. Already on the second floor the view is nice and even better higher up. The internet works as well as the AC. However, the room are not very nice the closet is very shallow, and the TV-set sit on an arm fixed to the wall. And the bathroom is quite simple, almost ugly. The only positive thing is that it has a shower and not a bathtub. The breakfast is a dull story, the eggs are substantially over cooked and there are no fruits or juice and the teabags are the worst in the market, Lipton’s yellow label.

This hotel is situated on the mountain and was earlier a old catholic cathedral. Which converted in a Hotel. The best part of this Hotel is the view of Nazareth city view and the view become more beautiful at night when the whole city is glows with lights. The rooms and toilets are average. Nothing much special. Food is good. Hotel is quite and cool place.

Let me begin by saying that I stayed in St. Gabriel as the tour organizer for 54 people, mostly students 18-19 years old. We always stayed in Fauzi Azar (Old City) in the past but during this trip, which was arranged by a travel agency, we ended up in St. Gabriel. So, it wasn't my first choice. We stayed for 2 nights. We also had half board (breakfast & dinner). Location: The positive is that it is located on top of a hill so the view was spectacular, especially in the evening. If you get a room on the 3rd floor facing the city, you'll know what I mean. The negative is that it is located on top of a hill so walking to the Old City was easy (Basilica of the Annunciation was an easy 10 minute walk downhill) BUT walking back is hell. It will be a steep never-ending uphill walk, easy for young people but difficult for more mature (older) types. The Building: It is an old monastery...beautiful from the outside, needs a bit of work inside. With a little renovation and redecoration, it could be a beautiful hotel. There were a lot of places where I noticed water damage in the drop ceiling. The Rooms: Again, with a bit of redecorating, the rooms would be amazing, especially with the views from the windows. My room needed new curtains which you can easily draw. As it was, I can draw half the curtain...the other half, I couldn't. Also, my room had a small fridge, but it wasn't turned on and had mold growing in the corners...yuck. The beds were comfortable. The bathroom was spacious and clean. The Service: Nizar, the owner's son was most helpful. He made sure that we were all comfortable and satisfied. He also went out of his way to help me get a passport number from my room while I was in hospital attending to a sick student. Some other members of the staff, not so much. One in particular overcharged me for 40 box lunches. Fortunately, I immediately recognized that the amount of money he wanted was much more than had originally agreed on. The Food: Plentiful and good...no complaints. All in all, I'd recommend St. Gabriel. It has great potential, but as it is now, it is still a good place to stay.

The hotel is in a former monastery which is a great thing. We payed for an upgraded room, so we got the suite which was ok but not very clean. The other tourists in the group complained a lot about the standard rooms so maybe those aren’t ok. In the restaurant the ceiling was broken and you feared it crashed any minute. The food was tasty and the staff attentive. They gave us free wine for dinner.
