Very good hotel, at very central location. Situated in the historical old town close to all sights in Damascus. Just by feet you can move around everywhere. Ver nice decorated rooms and very friendly staff makes it all complete

This is the second time we have stayed at the Old Vine hotel in Damascus and we enjoyed it just as much as we did the first time. Old Vine will arrange to pick you up from the airport. You get whisked into the city in less than 30mins and are met at the entrance to the medina by a... More

My wife and I, with four friends, spent 5 days at this delightful hotel. It is situated in a very quiet lane, but close enough to the hustle and bustle of the streets of old Damascus to be centrally located. On arrival we were given a very warm welcome by all the staff who were helpful throughout our stay. The... More

Yasmeen room is very romantic, with a four poster bed and a romantic atmosphere. However on our stay the bathroom, which is tiny, was a bit smelly. We stayed in other hotels in the old city so it is not only the pipes... It might just have been a problem on that day. Otherwise a nice place to stay, very... More

A beautiful 17thC courtyard hotel in the Old City, minutes from everywhere. The friendliest and most helpful of staff made this a delightful place to explore from. Comfortable clean rooms all attractively furnished - my favourite was the rooftop terrace room! Nothing was ever too much trouble. No restaurant, but a good breakfast (buffet style) and plenty of places to... More

I spent the night with my wife on our honeymoon. The hotel has a set of unique rooms, each with a different theme and its own theme, but all extravagantly furnished with traditional Mosaic Damascene antiques. The staff was extremely warm and the complementary breakfast offered a variety of delicious Syrian dishes. The hotel is strategically located in the heart... More

My friends were staying in another hotel but after seeing the Old Vine website, I decided to stay there. Great place, it is THE place to stay in Damascus for the hotel itself and the location. As everyone mentioned, very difficult to find and even if taxi drivers tell you they know the place, most of them do not! Cars... More

Amazing hotel, in the best location (literally 2 min walk from the Ummayad Mosque) The hotel is off a side alley where the Iranian souq is - not easy to find, but if you tell your driver to head to the Iranian Souq behind the Ummayyad, easy to find. The staff are lovely, breakfast is great - especially sitting on... More

We found this hotel on trip advisor, having organised our trip at the last minute and all the other hotelson our guides being fully booked. It is indeed impossible to find if you are just coming from the airport for the first time and it is best to get the hotel to pick you up even though the price they... More
