My daughter and I stayed here for three days in mid April. We were greeted with tea in the lovely lobby, and started each day with an excellent Middle Eastern breakfast. The rooms were immaculate, and the hotel is well located for walking to the old city, with its lovely mosque and fascinating narrow streets and marketplace and excellent restaurants. It's also an easy walk to modern downtown Damascus. The staff here are wonderful -- very helpful with our travel plans and solicitous of our welfare. My daughter is a fluent Arabic speaker, but we could have gotten by with just my English. I would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend this hotel to any traveler to Syria.
