The hotel is located by the entrance to Kibbutz Mizra, on the road from Afula to Nazareth. Our "superior" room was basically a family room with a queen size bed, a partition (with TVs), and a foldout sofa bed on the other side, that sleeps two. The ensuite shower room is clean and modern. The only trouble we had was with the airconditioning, it works fine - but we couldn't work out how to turn off the temperature display which is very bright at night. And one of the a/c's emitted a beep every few minutes. Not fun if you have trouble sleeping. Staff are friendly and helpful - but remember this is a kibbutz. If you want something, ask for it. They won't come running to see if you need something. And that's perfectly ok. Breakfast is ample and good quality, served in an airconditioned marquee in the courtyard. There is no evening meal service, but you can walk over the road to Cafe Cafe for a sit down meal, go to the Tiv Taam supermarket, or grab a sandwich from the Alonit store at the gas station. There was plenty of parking when we visited. Oh - and you can use the kibbutz outdoor swimming pool too, at no extra charge. It's within the kibbutz, but you'll find it easiest to drive round there (takes about 5 minutes). Ask for towels and a ticket at the hotel reception. The price is very reasonable. We've recently paid hundreds of shekels more for "budget"overnight stays in the region.…
We stayed at the Nof again on this trip to Israel. We have family in Afula , about 5-10 minutes from the hotel. It is a clean recently remodeled hotel. The staff is friendly and always helpful. They help with any of our questions and needs. There is free on site parking and the hotel is always clean and well maintained. The rooms can be a little small but we use it as a launching pad for our daily visits across Israel so we can be close to family. (Daughter, Son -in Law and Grand Daughter)
Good for 1 night, the price is high for the quality of this hotel. Small beds, uncomfortable. the breakfast coffee was cold and coffee-free. The price was exaggeratedly high for the quality of this hotel. Recommended for those traveling on business in this area of Hemek Yizrael. (not for tourism with family)
Was there for one night. Though the place was simple, it had the nécessities for a good night rest so we can continue our exploration of gems around the Sea of Galilee. The staffs were helpful and were spontaneous to share the timing of the supermarket and the café across the road. Café food was good and portion was generous. Would recommend to those who need to explore Nazareth and other places of interest around the Sea of Galilee
I’ve stayed at “the Nof” multiple times as a “long term resident” (3 weeks plus). This time I was just visiting for the weekend, but the staff still remembered me and gave me hugs and were very hospitable. I love Nof’s back patio, it’s a great place to bring beer/wine and chill with your friends. There’s free access to the pool on the Kibbutz which is a short 5-8 minute walk from the hotel. Do your research about the location of Kibbutz Mizra so you understand that it is not located in a city, but also it isn’t far from either Nazareth or Afula , you just have to take the bus, which stops outside! There’s a grocery store next door as well as a Cafe Cafe, and a gas station, so you can grab breakfast, lunch, dinner and any other necessities.
