We had previously met the owner of this restored house when we purchased some Damask cushion covers & a tablecloth from him . He showed us around and we were very impressed. His shop is close by and also has wonderful inlaid furniture. We had to amend our travel plans slightly and returned to Damascus from Crac de Chevaliers for a 2 night stay in the Zanobia suite. WOW! a large room with beautiful furniture and fab bathroom built into the old city walls. There is traffic outside but the soundproofing is excellent and you would never know. The breakfast was fantastic. Staff were obviously worried about the situation in Syria and the lack of tourists. It is such a shame and whilst we saw nothing during our 2 week stay tourism is badly effected. It is a fantastic country with wonderful people and we would return.
