Stayed four nights in Feb. 2014. Rooms are spacious, clean. Housekeeping restocked towels and amenities each day. Food was served buffet style and was excellent; great selection of salads, entrees and desserts. Wifi in lobby only; occasionally had slow service when big tour groups came in. 5-10 minute walk to the old city, entering through the Damascus Gate. Gift shops inside hotel had fair and reasonable prices on gifts.Staff was very courteous.
Only two "dislikes"- we were a group of five, and they really cater to large tour groups, and there were several staying at the same time. So if you happened to go to dinner right behind one of the groups, the lines in the dining hall were pretty long.
Secondly, there was no air conditioning- only heat. We opened our window and slept fairly well, but there was a good bit of traffic noise.
Still, overall, our experience was very good at this hotel. My personal preference is to stay inside the old city.
