The hotel is situated on the 'seam' and therefor we had sometimes problems to find a taxi driver who would drive us there at night. It's a 10-15 min. walk from Damascus Gate. We had a room in the 'new' part. It was spacious, clean and interestingly furnished. Certainly not luxurious. This is true for the entire hotel. The breakfast buffet is good, but modest. We had dinner once. There isn't much atmosphere in the restaurant. The food was of good quality but nothing to write home about. If you look for arabic cuisine and atmosphere, go elsewhere. Service in the restaurant seemed a little bit disconnected at times. Front desk service was ok. They have a nice, well stocked bar with a pleasant bar-keeper. The court yard is a very beautiful and quiet place. The pool is small, but pleasant. Also the sauna is modest. There is a very interesting book shop oppposite the hotel, as well as a a nice souvenir shop. All in all the American Colony is a nice place, but it's reputation exceeds reality.
