Stayed at Beit Akbik hotel in March 2010 and it was just wonderful. The hotel was perfect, the staff were friendly and the breakfast each morning was truly delicious. The location on Straight Street is easy walking distance to pretty well everything you want to see.

I stayed here and was not disappointed. I based my selection on tripadvisor recommendations and found that the hotel was everything the reviews said. The rooms are small but the design is great. The breakfast was very nice and so was the garden it was situated in. The hotel is a short walk from most of the attractions in central...

We recently independently toured Syria for 2 weeks and can only rave about the place and its people. We saw no trouble what so ever and have never felt more safe. The location of Beit Akbik is perfect, on Straight street in old Damascus within walking distance of the major sights and adjacent to the Roman Arch. A beautiful Damascene...

We spent four nights at Beit Akbik and I would recommend it. Overall I thought Damascus was rather expensive for hotels compared with the prices for food. However, we found Beit Akbik very well located where the Muslim, Christian and Jewish quarters meet in the old city. It was easy to walk to the souk, to the mosques and to...

We had a top floor room/suite, really lovely with outdoor terrace area, wasn't very sunny when we were there. I imagine it must be the business in hot Summer.. Staff are lovely, the room was beautiful but sadly we only got to spent a night there. We took a day trip with a driver hired by the hotel, called Joseph....

This hotel offered everything we had hoped for. Friendly service, great decor and history with modern conveniences. Loved the little courtyard for the delicious breakfast each morning where we could linger before our day's outing. Our bedroom had several windows- one looking onto the courtyard and another little one which overlook the laneway. It was a glorious start to the...

This mansion converted to a hotel is convenient for walking to anywhere in the old city, and is right across the street from what is probably the best restaurant in town, the Naranji. We were warmly received with a glass of juice even at 1:00 a.m., given a chance to look at two rooms and choose our preference, and offered...
