Treat with caution some of the glowing reviews you read about Hanania... it's one of the reasons we chose the hotel only to be sorely disappointed. Yes, the location is great, but that sadly, is about it! The breakfast is more a token offering or bread and coffee, leaving you most unsatisfied, the rooms have be sloppily put together with the random tchotchkes but that is not the worst part. The bathrooms are very small and beware of the sewage smells that penetrate every nook and cranny in the room, reminding you every morning what all of Damascus' old town is busy doing.
Not worth your hard earned dollar! Avoid if you are expecting a four-star property.
