The 5* Cham Palace is the most luxurious and most expensive hotel in Damascus. From the crystal chandeliers in the lobby to the marble fittings in the bathrooms, it is built to high international standards. It has two expensive bars, five restaurants and 400 modern, airconditioned rooms with satellite TV. The service is, however, not quite up to the same standard: more like 2 or 3 *.
Room rates range from $155 for the cheapest single room to $1,320 per night for a diplomatic suite. If I had to pay for myself, I'm not sure that I'd think it was worth the high price, but as I stayed here twice for free, courtesy of my employer, I can't complain.
Directions: In the modern city centre, near Saahat Yousef al-Azmeh
