We had been recommended to stay here by a Dutch colleague and it didn't disappoint. My only wish is that the room were larger and that it had heating. We happened to stay in Damascus in the dead of winter and so the charm of the place was slightly lost on us. Despite that, the reception folks were wonderful, especially Simon, and I enjoyed the lovely courtyard and warm staff. I would return (but when it's warmer!)

We changed our hoel in order to be closer to the Old City.The hotel seems very comfortable at first sight but there are many problems with mantenance. We had a warm welcome bu cold shower.The water was cold in the shower and the heater was out of order (We were travelling in January). We had to wait for another night,after which they changed our room.The bathroom was small and uncomfortable,no hairdrier or even slippers.We had to ask them to install a reading lamp whch was also missing in a 5-star hotel. The porters and waiters are just looking for a moment to be tipped.
The breakfast was the only thing we liked there,it was fitting with lots of staff. We would not go back to that place again.

Hotel arranged for taxi at airport to take us into hotel - in an old Damascus home that has been beautifully restored. Spotlessly clean hotel with large very comfortable single beds in our rooms. Bathrooms small - but seem to be everywhere we travelled to in Syria and Lebanon. Fantastic breakfast as well to keep you going all day. We came back to hotel, couldn't stay for last night but they organised a room at a hotel 20 yards away. Would definitely go back to stay there - and haven't said that about a hotel for years.
