“We love it, should stay longer”
Reviewed 7 August 2011

Very well positioned on the "Right Street" of Damascus which is within walking distance of most of sightseeing in Damascus.
Rooms small but very chic. Breakfast great. Staff very friendly and give helpful tips.

This hotel could be great. The location in the middle of old Damascus is excellent. The building itself, an old merchant house, has plenty of charm.

The rooms themselves however are tiny. Worse yet, they have a pungent smell of toilet cleaner about them. This smell persisted for the two days that we stayed, despite having the window open, and despite asking numerous times to have the room cleaned with simple water.

Almost as big an annoyance is that it was impossible to sleep once the first guests had breakfast in the morning. The soundproofing of the doors is poor, and as the rooms open directly into the stone breakfast courtyard. Sleep gave way to a cacophony of spoons and forks, each resonating and echoing. One had the impression that the guests having breakfast could also hear every word that we were speaking in the room.

The staff in the hotel was mixed. The receptionist on the first day was friendly and helpful in giving tips for damascus. Yet the staff the next few days was apathetic at best, and often downright discourteous.

Overall it was a big disappointment staying here.
This is a particular shame because the building and location have so much potential.

I stayed here for 4 nights during the period when Americans were advised to leave Syria. The hotel (like all others) was nearly empty. Even so, the staff was wonderful. My room, at the back, on the upper floor, was quiet, luxurious, romantic. It had a large terrace (no view, alas). The bed was gigantic and comfortable. It gave me a great feel for old Damascus.

Traditional old city damascene house. Lovely courtyard. We had a double room on the first floor. It shared a large balcony with the next room. Lovely atmosphere.

I travel many places but this hotel is my best. If I go back to Damascus I will go back same hotel. Room has great interior and beautiful courtyard. The hotel locates in old town where all you need is here. Staffs are nice and well helpful. Even decoration in toilet was made by full wall mosaic. I have a great time here.

My recent stay at the Agenor Hotel was spectacular in every way. Upon a very late arrival we were notified that we were upgraded to a suite which was fit for a queen. The bathroom was amazing! The services at all levels were prompt and attentive. The location in the old city is absolutely perfect for walking everywhere. I would not hesitate to stay there again. Book it!

I love the hotel! Came to Damascus because my interest of history and Agenor hotel was the perfect place to stay. It´s located perfectly, the people work there is the most lovely people I ever met in a hotel but also the hotel is something special. It´s like live in the history! If it´s something I regret it will be that I left!! Already miss the place!
