The rooms are tiny, the bathroom cubicles even tinier, but this is an old house and the absolutely fantastic view from their roof top terrace makes up for everything else in my point of view. You have the dome of the rocks “on a plate”, while you are eating your breakfast up there. The staff is genuinely friendly and welcoming and while it is on the noisy side, you are bang in the middle of one of the souqs and there are wafts of smell of exotic spices coming through your bedroom window. If you prefer your hotels to look the same all over the world like a Marriott avoid at all costs, if you are after a more genuine local experience -five stars! Also easy to get to, from central bus station take the new tram to Damascus gate and walk for 5-10 minutes.
