We stayed at the City Hotel for three nights, and couldn't be happier with the choice. The front desk (Tarek in particular) is unbelievably helpful and full of great local information. Our rooms were spotlessly clean, nicely decorated, quiet and comfortable. Breakfast was very generous, and served in a decadently decorated dining room.

I booked this hotel for a two-week trip I was taking with friends through Jordan, Syria, and Lebanon. We especially wanted a good place in Damascus because we'd be staying there for New Year's Eve. I'd read the great reviews and had high expectations--and I was not disappointed! From the moment of our arrival, when we were greeted by Mustafa...

My wife and I stayed at the City Hotel / Al Madinah for 4 nights from December 29th, a lovely hotel in a good location in the old city. All the staff went out of their way to help us in any way we asked. A special mention must got to Tarek who I e-mailed many times before we arrived...

“The rooms differ largely. Some are larger than others and have different shapes. I stayed 4 times in the hotel and each time stayed in a different room. Non have nice views. The ones in the back are totally quite as they look at the wall of another building. While the ones looking at the main street can be noisy during the day. All rooms are beautifully decorated with good wi-fi connections. Sizes of the bathrooms differ as well. Some have bathtubs and others just showers.”
