The hotel was dirty and overpriced. They advertise ammenities on a number of different travel booking sites that don't exist. They say they have wireless web access and they do...it just doesn't work. The lobby is dingy, worn and in need of a good cleaning. The room was a more serious health risk and the front desk people were grim and unhelpful. We arrived early and they tried to extort an additional night's room charge to allow us an early check in (about two hours early). The entire experience was horrible and we've traveled to over 50 countries on four continents so we have seen lots of different expressions of hospitality. Expedia wouldn't take a review even though our room was booked on their web site (through a colleague and not me personally). The hotel is honestly a slim two-star and they advertise and price themselves as a four-star. The hotel is well-located to the Damascus Gate but in a very dangerous and rough neighborhood. Some cab drivers will not go there. The coffee and breakfast were very good.
