This was the nicest hotel we stayed in during our trip to Syria. The staff were extraordinarily helpful and friendly and could not have made us feel more welcome. Nothing was too much trouble for them and we felt that they genuinely wanted to make our stay as perfect as they could. The rooms are light and extremely comfortable and the little courtyard is quite charming. The whole place is clean and bright with an elegant and sophisticated decor which makes it feel more modern (in the best sense) than some of the older boutique hotels where we stayed. The position is perfecct and it's astonishing how peaceful it is when it's only a minute away from all the hustle and bustle of the town. All five of us aged from 16 to 53 reccommend it very highly.
