We stayed in Sah al-Naum with our 6 month old back in 2010. It was before the war. We think fondly of this beautiful guest house and of our walks in old Damascus, the Christian quarter and our trip to beautiful Bosra.

Secondly, the stuff is very helpful and they do their best to make your stay nice and pleasant. And of course I should mention it's beautiful courtyard. You can... More

Must stress that we did not stay here during a recent 2 week visit to Syria (which we love , and incidentally saw no trouble at all) We were walking and actually got lost in the old town and couldn't find our way back to the Souk and Straight Street. Called in here to ask for directions, the owner Ahmed... More

Stayed here for a total of 6 nights, broken up by a side trip to into the desert. Great accommodation, run by a kind owner and considerate staff who took anticipated every need. Sah al Naum means "go to sleep" in Arabic...and indeed you will sleep well here, away from the noise of traffic.

Right from the start I was very impressed with the hotel - the manager called me in the UK to confirm everything and we had a long conversation. We arranged for them to pick us up from the airport and, true to their word, our driver was waiting for us on time. Our welcome was friendly and helpful and we... More
