We have been to Afamia at the end of August and we really enjoyed our stay.
We had a triple room in the new wing. The room was big and everything was perfect. The bathroom was big, spotless and with a bidet too.
The hotel is very close to the railway station, it takes 5-10 minutes walk to reach the Citadel (Old Damascus) and the most interesting cultural sites.
We never took a taxi.
The restaurant suggested by the reception (Al Kamal) was excellent.
A very nice hotel with a high quality of service!
