In this case, not a description of Prince Charming but the place he might live in. My mother and I spent ten days enjoying the sanctuary and romanticism of this impeccably restored Beit Arabi in the heart of the Old City. Each room is unique - one is even inscribed in calligraphy and poetry, just one of the many personal touches that help the guest to feel at home, and yet very far away from the ordinary. This boutique hotel, in the Christian quarter of Bab Touma, is very accessible and yet situated comfortably away from the busy main hub and is therefore quiet. Traditional Arabian hospitality harmonises with all modern conveniences i.e. high speed internet connections, good plumbing and excellent heating. In spite of the abundance of sights to see, it is very tempting to spend a day lounging in the court-yard or tea-room, enjoying its tranquility.
