Stayed in Omayad Hotel for over a month for business reasons. Rooms are comfortable with high ceilings and good air-conditioning, service people are friendly. Miss Samira in charge of the reception desk is very helpful and efficient; ask about her. Many restaurant and outlets in the Hotel serving nice food. Internet connection is free and fast. I recommend this hotel.

As an old hotel, most of the rooms are large and well furnished. The service is good but the prices are a bit expensive. They have one of the best discos in town, in terms of clientele and music. It is choice number one for open-minded and liberal families and business men.

I stayed at the Omayad Hotel for three nights in July. The hotel arranged for a driver to pick me up at the airport. They also gave good and accurate advice on security in the city of Damascus and also arranged for a car and driver to visit Palmyra for a day trip. All of the staff (front desk, reservations,...

This hotel is expensive and old with very outdated rooms. The location is fantastic, but that's about it. The hotel itself is not good at all. Even the internet was not working.

Email communication prior to arriving was very fast and informative. Despite the media reporting disruption in Syria at the end of March 2011 when we were due to travel, we were reassured that all was quiet and inviting in Damascus- which proved to be the case. The lady at reception, Samira, was our fountain of knowledge, ready to help us... More

This is the fourth time I stayed at the Oamyyad Hotel during my business trip. I very much like the rooms and find them spacious, clean, and very comfortable. The bed is firm and provides a great night sleep and there is a nice variety of Arabic and foreign TV programs. The front desk staff has always been pleasant and... More
