I wasn't sure what to expect from this place since there were so few reviews on the net, but it was a FANTASTIC deal for the price of the room. Yousef, who works there (what seems like 24-7) was a SUPER friendly guy, always asking us if we wanted tea or coffee (no charge) when we came in & would sit down and chat with us regularly. We stayed there for 2 nights and although the rooms aren't huge, they're fantastic value (all en-suite), including a few satellite TV channels (although only BBC was in English). The hotel was about a 15 minute walk from Damascus Gate, but that made it a real quiet place & the view from the rooftop is fantastic as well, especially to watch the sunset! Oh, and the breakfasts were decent with toast & jam, eggs however you like them, hummus, pita bread, cucumbers, tomatoes, etc. I HIGHLY recommend this hotel for value, quality, service, hospitality & friendliness!!!!
