Charming 7 room hotel in an old Damascene house, run by owners who love their work. Gorgeously restored with amazing attention to detail, including ornately painted ceiling beams in each room. Friendly staff who are happy to accommodate. Beautiful tiled bathrooms, comfortable beds, and access to BBC and CNN in the rooms for news junkies. Fountain in the courtyard. Roof-top views of the Old City. Free wireless internet. Tasty breakfast included in the room rate. I checked around with numerous other small hotels, and this spot had the best prices. Location is great – quiet, within good walking distance of sites and shops, and easy for taxis to find. Great place all around!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Beit Rose is a traditional Damascusine house of the eighteenth century that has been restored recently over a two year period with a delicate attention to preserve its authentic style; however very fine details were changed in an attempt to add a unique charm. The house is located in the heart of old Damascus, just few steps away from the Mostakem street (straight street) that dates back to the Romanian era. Therefore it's the ideal gateway for exploring the history, browsing surrounding area of interest and enjoying the sensational experience of the Syrian cuisine in the abundant nearby restaurants; many quiet bars are offering a chilling environment nearby. Each room is provided with air condition, heater, a small fridge, TV, international phone line and also wireless internet. Our breakfast is a combination between a continental and traditional Famascusine one and it's served for all our guests free of charge. We provide meals from our kitchen (is located out of the hotel). We do have a breezy specialized cocktail menu (served all day long). The Beit Rose's friendly staff go out of their way to make your stay an enjoyable experience. ... more less
