For a four-star hotel perhaps aimed more at businessmen than tourists, rooms and lobby are decorated with an Arabian flourish that's just about on the right side of pastiche. Rooms are comfortably appointed and the free wifi generally worked well. Excellent bathroom with large shower, although on one evening there was no hot water - apparently this is not unusual in Syria, even in good hotels.

Location is excellent, only a few minutes' walk away from the souk and approximately ten minutes' walk from the citadel entrance.

Any qualms? Well, breakfast was disappointing. It's hard to pinpoint why - there was quite a spread, but none of it really lifted the spirits (although the rooftop view of central Aleppo and the citadel certainly helped). Surprisingly, the only coffee available was in the form of sachets of instant, which is something I've never encountered before in a four-star hotel.

And the lobby seemed to be in a permanent state of semi-darkness, with only a fraction of the available downlighters switched on (or working). Perhaps this is a reflection of an apparently very low occupancy rate while we were there, presumably due to current events in Syria (which, it must be said, have largely passed the wonderful city of Aleppo by).

This may not be the most inspiring choice in Aleppo, but it's safe, clean, well appointed, comfortable and more than adequate in most ways.

Hotel is in a great spot, walking distance to bazaar and citadel and in the other direction great places to eat and wander in small lanes looking at shops.
Hotel has a roof top restaurant only open for breakfast or large groups for dinner (buses), wasted as the views are awesome from up there.
Breakfast was good and inlcuded in our room rate, rooms clean and comfortable. One of the very few places with free wifi and internet use.
No bar, no alcohol served in this hotel. Staff were very helpful and easy to deal with.
Traffic chaotic and slow in and around hotel.
Try the lemon and mint drink at one of the restaurants in front of the Citadel and watch the world go by while you sip it, even nicer late afternoon when the sun is setting.

nice rooms, very close to citadel and other touristic highlights of Aleppo.
The staff was generally not really engaged, especially at breakfast: At some days when the hotel was not full, they did not offer a breakfast buffet but serve an oriental breakfast:
One teabag per person, no croissants or similar, no fruits
For some days, when a tourist group from Italy stays at the hotel, a buffet was offered, but after 8:30 a.m. you would not get any orange juice and only odds and ends of the predecessors can be found at the buffet.

Rooms very spacious and with elegant interiour, but bed-linen had some blurs.

Exception: Staff at the ground floor was very friendly and gave us good advices for our trips.

Other than the super expensive Sheraton, the Coral Julia Dumna is your best choice in Aleppo for a true "hotel" experience. There are some lovely boutique/speciality lodgings in Aleppo that also looked wonderful, but I wanted a standard hotel experience for my older parents who were travelling with us.

Everything about the Coral Julia Dumna was wonderful. Being very close to the souq, the Ammawi mosque and the Aleppo Castle, the location is very busy with limited parking in front of the hotel. The hotel doesn't have much of an external entrance, but once you are inside eveything is lovely.

Highly recommended.

Reception is on the first floor of this great hotel ideally situated for the souks, mosque and citadel. The room itself had a huge bed, flat screen tv, a bathroom with a jacuzzi, and a second toilet. The hotel was quiet, the staff very helpful, and the breakfast was a feast. Nice touches include both soft and hard pillows, coffee/tea making facilities,a peaceful nights sleep, and a decent driver to take you to St Simeon etc. Maybe we were very lucky but for less than £60 a night, we had a result.
