“A little bit on the pricey side, but a good choice nonetheless”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2010

I arrived at the Ziad at 9.20pm one June evening without reservation and was quoted
S£1700 for a twin-room for one person B&B. I thought it a little pricey but given the lack of knowledge about the hotel scene around the area – there are a few but I couldn’t be bothered to go round to all of them with my luggage to check out the prices that late in the evening, I settled for the Ziad after inspecting one of the rooms.

It’s a good choice – clean, well-located, with all the amenities that is required for an overnight stay. The air-con worked – but you have to request to have it turned on and off via the command centre (reception), and cable TV was plentiful. No internet which is fine. More problematic though was the lack of hot water – it was worse than lukewarm even in the morning, and the breakfast was rubbish. Staff were also slightly standoffish.

However, if it’s for one night only, it’s more than bearable; it could have been a lot worse.

The Hotel Ziad is a joy and a blessing to find in this small town next the the mighty Euphrates. It is efficiently run with good staff. The rooms are roomy and spotless and the beds so comfortable we just wanted to sleep! The air-conditioning worked brillantly and the windows shut out the noise well too. Sadly for us we only stayed one night but the day we were there we had such fun, going to a restaurant on the other side of the bridge past the pleasure park on the right; it was recommended by the owner of the Hotel and the food was fantastic, have the kebabs! Then in the evening Lailati's is a must, we were escorted there by a small boy who had been given the job by one of the shopkeepers we had been talking to. The Syrian's are just so friendly and helpful whereever you go.
Hotel Breakfast was very good even though we were late down they still served us along with Sara, who was cycling alone through Syria!
The Hotel organised our transfer from Deir Ezzor to Aleppo which was very good we stopped at Lake Assad on the way and had lunch at the little restaurant on the banks of the lake, fresh fish from the lake - delicious!

End of May, the temperature in dusty Deir Ezzor stays around 40C°. Given the very limited choice of accommodation in this town and knowing the sadness of the state run Cham Hotels, we decided - on the bases of the previous positive reports on trip advisor - to give Ziad Hotel a chance. This was a big mistake. At arrival we were informed that there was only a central command AC system and that we had to call reception from the room to put the AC "on" and "off". At bedtime, we had a first surprise, discovering 5 washers on the rooftop right above our room rattling like tractors...after inquiry we were told: 1:) the whole Hotels heres the noise 2.) it will stop after 21:30.....But the main issue was the AC breaking down 4 times at night. I called reception almost every 2 hours with an astonishing answer: not possible. I left the room at 5:30 with terrible headache and almost no sleep. The Hotels has either no technical capacities to have an AC system working or the want to save on the expensive power supply. In both cases, it woks only for guests with sleeping capacities in room temperature above 38C°. The town and the Hotel Ziad are ages away to accommodate visitors in a decent and friendly manner, lacking so far behind even compared with the general situation in Syria.

We stayed 2 nights in April. The room was very spacious, overlooking the roundabout with fountain and the canal. Bed was large and comfortable, and the bathroom reasonably clean and functional. Generally a comfortable retreat from the wind blown dust engulfing the town during our visit. Breakfast was unremarkable - eggs but no yoghurt. It is a pleasant walk to the suspension bridge, and there are places to eat nearby.

Our hotel room at Ziad was spacious, clean and came with a hot shower. The hotel staff don't appear to be all that welcoming at first, but do what they are supposed to.

The whole situation where the aircon/heating is switched on and off from the reception is very odd, but the windows do open so there is some possibility of controlling temperature that way if you want. There is a restaurant downstairs that serves included breakfast, although its nothing special.

At a room rate of us$50/eur35 is slightly more expensive than comparable hotels in syria, but as there are few alternatives in town, i'd recommend staying here.

We only stayed for one night though, during a trip of the eastern part of syria, where it makes a good base touring mari and europos from palmyra, and going on to aleppo the next day (or vice versa). Parking is available if you come with your own car.

Rooms, sheets and bathrooms were clean. Front desk staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very good. Parking right in front. Beds were comfortable. Showers were hot. Rooms were quiet. Rate was $50US for a double with private bathroom. It seems to be the only choice in Deir Ez-Zor. Even the locals we met told us that the other hotels in town cost the same but were dirty. The hotel does not have a restaurant but there are places to eat within walking distance. The suspension bridge is within walking distance. This place makes a good base for Mari, Dura Europa, Halabiyya, etc.

Clean and comfortable and a very welcome site after our run-in with the police at the bus station. However, I digress. As has been said, the staff, especially hazem, the manager, are not very welcoming. Our guess is that they don't get many indie travellers, mostly locals and tour groups (rushing thro). Not at all helpful with transport down to the sites or on to Aleppo. They have contact with one driver (what an experience that was0 or nothing!
We had a huge room (303) overlooking the fountain below and the canal. A/c worked fine, a blessing in the 40+ heat - no problem getting the staff to switch on/off.
