Staying at Beit al Mamlouka was one of our best travel experiences ever. The beautiful old buildings, the amazing interiors right out of One Thousand and One Nights and the fantastic location in the old city made it an unforgettable stay. All the staff was extremely pleasant and helpful - and also helped arrange for great day trips with a good driver. We cannot wait to go back to our favorite spot in the whole world: Syria - Damascus - Beit al Mamlouka!!
