We spent five nights at this hotel, and found it to be comfortable, clean, and convenient. Most of the staff were noticeably very young, but on the whole proved to be very efficient and friendly.
Unfortunately the first night of our stay was disrupted by an emergency evacuation caused by activation of the fire alarm system by a person or persons unknown with some sort of grievance against the hotel. Tear gas or something similar was released in the hotel and all the guests were requested to stay in the rear garden area until the problem was resolved by the Emergency Services. The hotel staff did a commendable job providing blankets and drinks to all the guests as the night time temperature was uncomfortably chilly when only wearing sleeping attire. Patio heaters were also brought in to help with the situation. After a few hours we were allowed to return to our rooms and settled down to a peaceful remainder of the night. Fortunately the remainder of our stay was incident free, however the staff continued to be very apologetic and hoped that the incident had not spoiled our stay. We tried to ensure them that we did not apportion any blame to the hotel, and insisted that the incident would not influence any decision to stay there in the future.
From the roof level swimming pool terrace, and Lebanese Restaurant the views are spectacular, and the close proximity of the hotel to Damascus gate makes exploration of the old city easy.
Overall we were very happy with our choice of hotel and would have no hesitation in either returning oursleves or recommending it to others.
