This was the 'luxurious' part of our trip to Syria, the part where we wanted to spoil ourselves a little...and it was gorgeous, our room was very well done, if a little small, but the hotel itself, half of an original Damascene House, was very beautifully restored. The owner clearly has a love of art, making it a lovely calm...

At walking distance to All main old City attractions and just next to one of the major gate Bab Sharqi, the hotel is very quiet. We stayed as a couple for two nights in one of the top room, with a terrasse and little...

The hotel is...

Hotel Hanania is located in the Christian Quarter of the old city of Damascus. The old city of Damascus is a true gem - a 1001 nights adventure with a wonderful and huge bazaar, plenty of amazing and charming small restaurants, plenty of small hamams, boutiques, galleries, Mamluk Style palaces, churches, synagoges, mosques and museums as cafés around every corner...

“Most of the rooms are up steep stairs. If this is a problem request first floor accommodations. As in many boutique hotels here, breakfast is in a kind of wine cellar...down steep stairs.”
