Hotel Al Rabie Damascus Reviews
Stylish charm in a central location Jul 14, 2010
This is a gem of a place because of its internal courtyard.
It is also very handy to the all the attractions of Central Damascus. It's also on the bus route to BOTH the long-distance bus stations!
I chose to stay in the rooftop dorm which had 2 toilets and showers adjoining.
Reason was that in previous places, rooms remained hot during the night while the roofs cooled down.
As it turned out, the other dorm rooms and private rooms in this hotel are downstairs and nicely shaded ... and also have thick thick concrete walls so they don't really heat up to the same extent.
Nevertheless, the rooftop was pleasant at night but too hot during the day (when I'm out sightseeing).
You'll have to ask the price yourself ... inflation in the accommodation sector must be running wild in Syria as the prices in our guidebook (latest edition) were constantly too low ... by 2-3 fold.
I consider it pricey but worthwhile by regional standards.
