    I stayed around 10 days in this hotel during my business trip to Syria. It is very nice and clean with very good management in the heart of Damascus. I stayed in a small room but very cozy and clean. Breakfast is fantastic and very tempting. You can reach to the busy and nice Damascus night within minuts.

    My wife and I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. The staff were very friendly. The hotel is very clean. The location is great since it's in the middle of the city and it's in a safe part. It's a 4 star hotel but I would honestly rate it as 5 considering that I've stayed at another 5 start... More

    The hotel's location is superb - on hamra street its very close to Souk Al Hamidiya and all the amazing cultural niches in Damascus. Service of hotel is really good - only annoying this is that they dont have king beds - apparently they push the double beds together to make them a single bed.

    The hotel location is good and that is about it. The rooms are very old and shabby. Absolutely no maintenance to the furniture and the bed sheets were dirty with many holes in them. Our room's AC was not working and the AC tech spent more than 4 hours trying to fix it with no joy. When asked manager for... More
