Sleeping at the local SHERATON...

Sleeping at the local SHERATON should be nice....BUT BE AWARE OF THURSDAY WEDDING. After the celebration all the people come here and the party is starting!!

And where is the problem you will think now from your pc?

Right the time!! They can finishing with EXTREMELY LOUDY MUSIC even at 5,00 in the morning!!And believe me: no chance to sleep!
Their general manager should be fired off...Probably it wasn't up till now because of the nice bars &nite clubs.....

Omayyad Palace (known to Arabs...

Omayyad Palace (known to Arabs as the Al-Umayya, in case you get a blank look from your taxi driver). This is a four star hotel, run by Syrians and Swiss, and is better than the other expensive hotels in terms of location and value for money.
US$80 - US$90 for a standard double room. The other expensive hotels in Damascus (Cham Palace, Sheraton, Ebla Cham Palace, Meridien and Semiramis) all cost considerably more (the Sheraton is more than US$200 per night!).

The rooms are great...well, like any expensive hotel I suppose. The view from the roof is nice...you can see most of Damascus, and the view towards Qassioun is spectacular. One drawback though is the lack of swimming pool. However, the receptionists are adept at opening padlocks on suitcases, which comes in very handy if you happen to lose the key (like my Dad!...when my brothers stayed here two months later, the receptionists all remembered this particular incident!)
