We chose this hotel on the basis of Trip Advisor reviews and we were not disappointed. Like many Damascus hotels, the decor is pretty amazing, but the stand-out was the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff - particularly the reception staff Tha'ed and Mustafa. They always had a cheerful greeting for us, and plenty of time to discuss what we were planning to do and what we had done. Damascus Old City is not that far away by foot. We left early for our flight, and getting us an early breakfast was not just no trouble - rather, we hadn't expected it but they insisted that they would do it for us. Admittedly the room was small, but we would happily stay there again.
