We spent four nights at Beit Akbik and I would recommend it.
Overall I thought Damascus was rather expensive for hotels compared with the prices for food. However, we found Beit Akbik very well located where the Muslim, Christian and Jewish quarters meet in the old city. It was easy to walk to the souk, to the mosques and to the churches we wanted to see. Naranj the best restaurant in town was only a block away.
The staff were friendly and helpful.
