Tradition At Your Service
Amanda: Absolutely Perfect
My sister and I stayed here a couple of weeks ago and were amazed by the surroundings, friendly staff, reasonable prices, and pretty much everything about the hotel. The owners spared no detail in designing this place. Everything, from the lamp design to the small touches in the bathrooms (olive oil soap from Aleppo!) to the blackberry juice they greet you with, is perfect. I want to return to Damascus simply to stay at this hotel again.

Marco: gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous
We found this hotel by accident, wandering the old town of Damascus to find a place to stay. All the boutique hotels were booked solid, and we only found a room here because it's just opened and isn't yet on all the various Internet and travel agency circuits. What luck we had. It's three inter-connected courtyards of old Damascus houses. The place has been beautifully restored with gorgeous stone work throughout. The rooms vary from small and cozy to downright palatial. They all have traditional furniture, modern tv's, safes, and charming bathrooms. You can hang out in any of the courtyards and have coffee or a glass of wine at any time of the day. The staff is super-friendly, and were great with our 6-year old daughter. It's a good place for kids, since it's large enough for them to go exploring without annoying other guests, unlike some of the other Damascus boutique hotels which are smaller and more prissy. The wi-fi is free and works well. There's a small gym with modern equipment and a sauna. It's located in the Christian quarter of the old town right near Bab Sharqi on the eastern end of Straight Street. It's about a 10-minute walk to the heart of the souk or to the main mosque (though it will take you much longer than that since you'll end up stopping a dozen times to check out a church or a palace or a khan or a shop). There's no restaurant but that's not a problem since there are plenty of places to eat all around. A buffet breakfast is served in one of the courtyards. My only complaint is that at breakfast they kept running out of things (coffee, yogurt, bread) and we'd have to wait a bit for replenishments. But that's a minor point and I'm sure they will work it out, given that it's brand new. Go quick. We stayed in a massive room with ceilings two stories tall and musuem quality stonework and calligraphy, for $250 a night with breakfast. It won't stay that reasonable once it gets discovered.

Paolo Simonatti: Mr
I passed by the hotel but I didn't have a reservation, I had a nice Syrian Coffee with Mr. Elias, nice manager, very nice and polite staff (Reception & House Keeping) ....such a nice hotel I wish that I had more time to spend 1 or 2 nights there, it's a real example of a "Damascene" traditional house...thanks once again...maybe we will met again soon.
