I stayed at Beit Zafran 4-5 times during my business trips to Damascus, and I cant even start to describe how much I enjoyed my stay there... The Hotel itself is a piece of art and history...the rooms look as if they came out from The Thousand Nights & Night stories, so spacious and refreshing to be in especially during... More

I was in Damascus on September 2011, My assistant booked me at Beit Zafran Hotel. and it absolutely exceeded my expectations. Most of the time you feel like you're the only one there,. The staff are amazing. Mr. Nour Moftah the hotel manager who met several time achieves the right balance between helpful, inquisitive and discreet. Beit Zafran may not... More

We stayed here for three nights in April 2011, and were hoping we wouldn't be disappointed, as it was one of the most expensive hotels we'd ever chosen to stay in. In short, we weren't! We were travelling with a 21 month old, and the hotel provided a room on the ground floor (easy access with buggy), a large cot... More

At the end of April we decided to go on the trip through Syria and Lebanon we had been so much and so long looking for. Of course we were worried but as my wife said on the plane home "I'm so glad we did it!" A considerable part of the pleasant memories we have taken with us from this... More

This small gem is in the heart of old Damascus. It is an old palace beautifully restored. The courtyard with the fountain is a heaven to relax in when coming back from hustling,bustling Damascus. Good restaurants all in walking distance. The rooms are comfortable, the staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is on the rooftop. I would stay there anytime... More

We spent 4 nights here and used it as a base to explore the city. It felt like a wonderful home to return to after each full day of sightseeing. Breakfast on the terrace provided a great start. There are several good restaurants we could walk to in the evening. And the staff couldn't be more helpful and solicitous. An... More
