Stayed recently at Beit zamman in the heart of old damascus on straight street (via recta ) close to bab sharqi or the eastern gate of old Damascus consists of two connected adjacent damascene houses with two courtyards surrounded by the rooms on two floors . the hotel is furnished with typical Damasene furniture , a local craft called arabesque and mosaic . Old damasene homes are fine pieces of architecture despite some homes looking shabby from outside due to lack of maintenance ,each home has a courtyard with a fountain in the center where the family gathered and orange trees as well as the kabad or naranj trees which is a local syrian fruit more like a huge citrus .
Beit zaman which means home from olden times has a pub with live music in the basement , a hammam or bath with the typical Syrian steam ,sauna ,rub ,scrub and massage with natural loofas and olive oil products native to the country and a rooftop restaurant with a view of old Damascus , a mini bar in theroom and room service.
