Charming little hotel in typical Ottoman style house, with open courtyard, recently renewed. Situated in the heart of Old Damascus, within a walking distance from the main historical places. The rooms are clean and furnished in damascene style. Wireless internet available, but unreliable. The staff are young people, very friendly and helpful. Quite crowded at night.

What a charming hotel on the edge of Old Town Damascus. It was a perfect location for visiting the historic sights and shopping the souks. The hotel is new and the staff went out of their way to be friendly and helpful. Our room was furnished with ornate inlayed Syrian crafted-furniture - beautiful. Breakfast was an array of Arabic foods... More

We are a norwegian/french family who stayed 4 nights in Damascus in the end of january this year. This hotel was mainly chosen because of its location in the old city. But we could not have found any better hotel. The rooms were spacious and beatifully decorated in syrian style. The bathrooms were comfortable with lofts of hot water. Delicous... More

This new-ish small hotel was encountering problems due to a rain & snow storm during our visit. It's located in a typical Ottoman house with open courtyard, and Damascus city regulations apparently no longer allow hotel owners to put a glass roof over the courtyards. The courtyard was very wet and cold as a result, and the tarpaulin they had... More

All of the 8 rooms in this small and charming hotel are decorated differently in Syrian style with luxury amenities. The beds were really comfortable with perfectly pressed high thread count sheets and matching comforters. This was the only hotel of our five day stay in Syria that was really clean and where the staff was caring. The staff were... More

We arrived late, and left early after breakfast: but our impressions were most favourable. It's a newly renovated hotel, with the usual courtyard arrangement, a superior quality breakfast, and very well-appointed rooms. It is a bit difficult to find, though, and a few people we asked for directions didn't have a clue, probably because it's so new: worth taking the... More
