Stayed here 6 weeks and plan on visiting again the end of this year sometime. Great views, service and staff. Great location and a very beautiful area of Syria where the locals are so friendly and helpful. Probably the best place to stay in that region of syria if you don't want to be amongst crowds or if you want... More

his is basically the only choice in Safita or decently close to the "Crack des Chevaliers", and this is probably the only reason to visit this hotel.

First let me start by saying that I'm from Safita, and due to tight quarters at relatives' houses and the relatively cheap cost of staying at the hotel, we jumped at the chance to have a place of our own to stay while we were there for two weeks in April, 2012. We baptised our son there and spent a... More

We stayed there for one night. We had a room with sea viewing. The view is great; you are on top of Safita. The hotel is large but...we were the only two guests there! Nevertheless the kitchen cooked for us dinner and breakfast in a very good quality. A great effort for just 2 people. I don't now the reason... More

The room was large, comfortable, and even featured a patio to look out over the countryside. Don't know whether they advertise having hair dryers or not, but they are available only on a first come first serve basis at the front desk. (There may be only one.) There was a business center with at least one computer. The hotel is... More

We arrived with a booking only to be told no rooms were available. The receptionist was totally dismissive. "The problem is at your end not ours" was the response. So we did not get to look at the rest of the hotel which didn't look too bad from the reception!!

This large hotel is situated in the easygoing mountain town of Safita, a favourite holiday haunt of wealthy Damascenes and ex-pats who come home to Syria for the summer. It comprises one very imposing building overlooking a valley, and boasts a swimming pool (used by both men and also women in bikinis, to my utmost astonishment...), a very nice restaurant... More

“Tell them you'd like a family suite to get more space...although most rooms are a nice size. Be sure to have a marriage certificate handy, etc. As I think most hotels in Syria require proof of marriage for males and females staying in the room together unless they're related.”
