Secondly, the stuff is very helpful and they do their best to make your stay nice and pleasant. And of course I should mention it's beautiful courtyard. You can... More

Must stress that we did not stay here during a recent 2 week visit to Syria (which we love , and incidentally saw no trouble at all) We were walking and actually got lost in the old town and couldn't find our way back to the Souk and Straight Street. Called in here to ask for directions, the owner Ahmed... More

Stayed here for a total of 6 nights, broken up by a side trip to into the desert. Great accommodation, run by a kind owner and considerate staff who took anticipated every need. Sah al Naum means "go to sleep" in Arabic...and indeed you will sleep well here, away from the noise of traffic.

Right from the start I was very impressed with the hotel - the manager called me in the UK to confirm everything and we had a long conversation. We arranged for them to pick us up from the airport and, true to their word, our driver was waiting for us on time. Our welcome was friendly and helpful and we... More

We stayed for 5 nights and had a wonderful time. The hotel was beautiful and relaxing. The courtyard with lemon trees and fountains a wonderful place to relax after a long day walking the city. The staff were charming and helpful bringing tea and coffee. There was even a musical night with a whirling dervish which was a fantastic evening... More

We enjoyed the perfect trip to Syria - thank you! We liked staying with the Sah al Naum, Ahmed, the owner, and his staff are great hosts, Washee (?) was a wonderful driver, and we saw so much. The hotel is very close to the Old Town of Damascus; it is an old house with a lovely couryard. I'm sure... More

It is within walking distance to so many attractions. 2. The hotel is an old house of Damascus. Touring Damascus gave me the feeling that this city... More
