I called and reserved a suite at this hotel based on previous reviews. I travelled with a family of five. I had to stay in 2-bedroom suite or two double rooms. I was given the price in Euros over the phone, which was said to include breakfast. However, when I checked in they claimed that rate did not include breakfast.... More

What should I say about this hotel? Very comfortable and the staff AWFULLY nice! They would go "beyond the line of duty" so to speak, to make your stay pleasant. The location, for me it was splendid in the sense that you immediately "plunge" into the spirit of the country! People even offered me some fruit!!!! Yes, a bit noisy,... More

This is a very strange place to stay if you're on business, mainly because you will have to trudge through the dirty, smelly market in your business suit to get to a taxi from the main street around the back. Also getting a taxi to actually drop you off at the entrance is difficult so again you will probably have... More

This hotel was booked for me. My previous experience of Damascus hotels was the Cham Palace, that is very tired. I'm not sure what royalty would stay at this hotel, maybe a royal family from a very small and poor country as there was nothing particularly regal about it. It is a small hotel, located in old Damascus - which... More

Perfect location for seeing all the sites of Old Damascus, everything is within walking distnace. Staff is very helpful and friendly. The rooms are a bit tired, but so is all of Syria, it seems. Also, if you are on the front of the hotel, you face a souk and a mosque so be prepared for noise late into the... More

Nice hotel, newly constructed, perfect location for discovering Damascus. Breakfast was below average, but OK. Service good. There is a café in the reception area.

I was forced to be accommodate in Royal Suites in Damascus since my hotel was fully booked. I found it as a little gem in the middle of chaos. Hotel is in the center beside the entrance of the souk where you can find the Umayyad Mosque and old town. I got the suite with seating area and kitchen, sleeping... More
