Art House Damascus
Ranked #10 of 60 Hotels in Damascus
Reviewed 9 July 2009

The Arthouse was amazing and pleasant surprise. We had chosen to stay on a friend recommendation and because it stood apart from the cliche "old city chic" hotels. From the moment we arrived it was intimate and exquisite service in a Damascene Bawa style mansion. From roof-top city-lights dinners to breakfast and designer perfect personal sauna, pool and spa. Any foray into the city was personally handled by the staff. This hotel is a must if you a traveller, not for tourists or big brand drones.

Reviewed 12 November 2007

On the face of it, this remote boutique hotel nestled in an old converted mill, a mere 10 to 15 minute drive away from the center of Damascus, is a wonderful place to stay in. The Syrian capital is a polluted and noisy place, particularly outside the famed Old City, and this is the only small hotel in town where you can relax beside a beautiful swimming pool, work out at a gym, enjoy the spa or just soak the sun on the terrace. The public spaces are beautiful, with high stone walls, intriguing paintings and a dramatic use of lighting under the vault sized lobby. Art House, as its name implies, also houses an exciting program of music recitals and art exhibitions. If all of this sounds ideal, I'm afraid I was let down by the sloppy service, indifferent food and lack of attention to detail which you take for granted from a hotel that charges close to 200 dollars per night. To give a few examples, my small room had no writing desk. At dinner, I was given a menu without any price list, the laundry costs are similarly mysterious and there isn't even an Arabic-language card available to facilitate your return by taxi... The receptionist couldn't understand why I was asking for such a thing. It's a charming place. But perhaps someone should teach them how to run a hotel...
