The real selling point of this hotel are the staff who were very helpful to us. The hotel itself is reasonable but nothing exceptional. The rooms were clean and were of an adequate size. The hotel is about 15 minutes walk from the Old City so not ideal but this is an excellent place to stay on arriving in Damascus...

Great location, walking distance from the old city. Great staff and clean rooms with air conditioning, heating and hot water. Nice breakfast. Difficult to find, because it is in the 3th floor in a narrow street, you will help your driver saying that it is in front of Venezia Hote.l

The Orient Gate hotel is good value accommodation in central Damascus. The rooms were fine - clean and basic, with great views from the terrace/ breakfast area upstairs. The staff were extremely helpful to me as I had to prevail upon them to use their laptop to complete work, and they were very obliging.

We found Orient Gate Hotel totally up to our expectations. The staff was friendly and helpful, the rooms are small but o.k. and also sufficiently clean. Of course this is not five star accommodation, but given the fact that accommodation in Syria seems to be more expansive than in Jordan, we found this place to be absolutely o.k. The location...

Stayed here in July 2010 for $70 per night for a triple room. The hotel is about 10minute walk from the old town, and close to the modern shopping areas of Damascus. The hotel is clean and comfy. It won't win any prizes for style but it's functional and good value. Some of the rooms have older ac units which...

We stayed for 3 nights at the Orient Gate, in terms of location, it is about a 10-15 min walk to the Old Town. The hotel itself is in an alleyway and has not been updated since the 1970's perhaps. The rooms are very basic but clean. We paid about $65US per night which was more than the price advertised...

Reasonable accommodation, clean with hot water. We paid S£2200 per night, might have been able to negotiate a better out of season rate. Staff helpful with some English. Normal Syrian breakfast. Plus points - located in central area (along with many other budget hotels), good view of Jebel Qassioun from breakfast room. Minus points - 3rd floor, access via stairs...
