What makes the Beit Rose Hotel so Darn Good? This charming hotel is small and intimate with amazing customer service.

Location: The Beit Rose Hotel is tucked on a side alley just off ancient Straight Street within the walled old city of Damascus. Over five thousand years old, Damascus is considered to be the world’s oldest continuously inhabited city, and a walk through atmospheric old town is like a walk through history. Packed within the maze of narrow alleyways are Roman-era walls and ruins, Greek Orthodox churches, bustling markets, and one of Islam’s greatest mosques, the Umayyad Mosque.

Rooms: Beit Rose, which occupies a traditional 18th century home, has been carefully renovated in Damascene style. The hanging plants and lanterns, refurbished antique furniture, and handmade ceramic bathroom tiles set the tone, while the comfortable beds and flat screen televisions complete the picture.

Food: Upon arrival, we were greeted with delicious Arabic tea. Later, we relaxed with evening cocktails on the rooftop terrace overlooking old Damascus, and in the morning we enjoyed a sumptuous Syrian breakfast of fresh cucumbers, cheeses, olives, hummus, and croissants by the fountain in the courtyard.

Vibe: The Beit Rose is a cozy hotel with a very helpful, yet unobtrusive, staff.

Keep in Mind: Most hotels in Syria do not allow unmarried couples to share a room; this is the only bed and breakfast that would take us, and we feel that we lucked out!
