5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2013

Ancient residence (upper-class, to say the least), beautifully restored. Take some time in the garden as well and enjoy the calm and shade although it's in the old city.

“Great place to sit and relax under the orange trees.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

This old house is a fine example of the wooden houses of Damascus. The school room and the airy sitting rooms have wonderful ceilings and walls covered in brocades. They all open out to the shady courtyard with its fountains and orange trees.

The buildings themselves are works of art with their coloured patterns and the rooms have been converted to show the culture of Syria and traditional costumes.

“Fascinating and Various”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2012

It would be easy to spend days there. Transports the visitor a certain variety of freedom to wonder what life was like there-- like Few places of it's kind do. The information given is simple and concise. The brocades in the room devoted to dress make what passes for "fashion" in the modern world seem precisely that--what is there is timeless--simple and complex--quintessentially beautiful.
