  • Hotel with the best view of the Citadel

    by

    The Beit Salahieh, is a lovely hotel (converted from a 15th century palace), which has panoramic views of the Citadel. The staff were courteous and helpful.

    The hotel is tucked down a narrow residential street (with signs all along the way, directing a visitor). I found it an easy walk to the Citadel and the souqs.

    I had some difficulty finding taxi drivers who knew this hotel, perhaps because of the name change (from its former name, the Diwan Ramsy).

    I was so pleased during my first visit, that I canceled my plans to stay at the Dar Zamaria, on my return to Aleppo, and instead, arranged to revisit the Beit Salahieh!

    The price was higher than average ($82US, with breakfast, for a single) in October, 2008.

    Unique Quality: Terrific views of the Citadel, quiet residential neighborhood setting, and convenience to the souqs

From Turkey to Aleppo by train/bus**help**

by vanella

Hi All, I will be in Turkey in August going to Siria, couple of questions:which is the best option to going to Aleppo? I canot find train/bus schedule, I will be in gaziantep/Urfa, any suggestion fo a good hostal and 4 days itinerary in Siria travelling by bus/train?Thanks!Any suggestion will be very appreciated!

Re: From Turkey to Aleppo by train/bus**help**

Hi ,
Transportation is readily available at all times and plenty between gaziantep and Allepo especially buses and shared taxis so dont worry, you can find out the exact timings on your first day there .

Damascus hostel is not taking travellers on a daily basis any more , it`s month and more basically foreign students studying Arabic . Try Al Rabie hostel /Al haramein hostel /sultan hotel /Al salam hotel in Damascus .

In Allepo you may also want to check , spring flower hostel ,Riad hotel and Syria hotel.
Have a nice trip .

I `m in contact with him since 2008 , he used to be here on vt , currently he is not in Syria and let only for month onwards :)

Re: From Turkey to Aleppo by train/bus**help**

by Mel_H

i helped promote his hostel in a way (sometimes unintentionally) long enough just by knowing him on vt , i ve never met him in Syria or other or been to the hostel but my advice would be don`t deliberately promote it as you risk the chance of getting deleted from here as the site is not for advertising or business owners , fair play is the game ,list all and let people choose.

Re: From Turkey to Aleppo by train/bus**help**

by Mel_H

A recent while he had a note that they were renting for a month minimum which left them with that category , i never said it WAS for students only at all given times , earlier on it was for anyone on daily basis , recently that`s his notification ........anyway could you kindly stop being argumentative and agressively promoting the place because you are bound to be deleted from the site as a person working in tourism and promoting . Again i say list and let people choose .There should be nothing in it for you whether the owner is back or not so why be precise , they can contact the hostel and inquire , what you have just posted is plain outright promotion.

From my own perspective as a local living and working in the field of tourism and who has visited Coral Julia Dumna many times. What I liked best about the hotel was the comfortable rooms, friendly staff and location. It is situated in the heart of Aleppo surrounded by the most historical sites: 10 minutes walk from Aleppo Citadel, 150 meters from the Umayad Mosque and the Old Souqs."

Below are a couple of books I recommend reading prior to a trip to Syria:

Syria - A Historical and Cultural Guide, by Warwick Ball

Monuments of Syria - An Historical Guide, by Ross Burns

Syria - A Selection of Reports, by Carol Miller

Aromas of Aleppo - The Legendary Cuisine of Syrian Jews, by Poopa Dweck (An excellent and comprehensive cookbook of Aleppine recipes. It also provides an interesting account of the history of the city and its Jewish population, along with its traditions).

Construction of Power and Piety in Medieval Aleppo, by Yasser Tabbaa (Penn State Press). A big hard cover book, way too heavy to pack in your bag, but it provides a scholarly account of medieval architecture in Aleppo for those interested in the details...

Getting To A Local's House...

by coceng

Getting invited to a local's house is the best memory I had in Aleppo !
This is the kind of hospitality which is not always come by so I took the chance even that meant that I had to leave certain places to explore on my own around Aleppo.

Amazing place to visit

by gilbertooo

Aleppo's citadel Actually U can find a lot of interesting monuments in this city.
You will really see so ancient things wich will amaze you.
And there is a christian citadel near the city..
Food is cheap there..transport as well...people there like touristes and help them.. but it's not recomended for for a girl to go alone there if she knew nobody..
Even though the city is so safe generally.
dont hesitate to ask questions

the old town

by call_me_rhia

Aleppo, and especially the old town, is like entering another dimension - or better like a step back in time: just close your eyes and it's easy to be transported back in time - to the time of the great merchant's era , when it was at the crossroad of many trading routes. walking around the old town after dusk, in the badly lit (or even unlit) little narrow lanes. After the shops have closed for the day, Aleppo's true beauty shines clearer: a maze of wonderful solid old builgings, unchanged throughtout the centuries. I loved walking around there - getting lost - finding myself somehow back where I started from.

Aleppo is a very old city and...

by Turco

Aleppo is a very old city and a major trade center for the Levant since times before the Romans. This city is Syria’s second largest. Here you can go shopping in the many bazaar shops and stores through the city. The old part of the city is very nice and maintains a lot of its original architecture. I like the people of Aleppo, with a very strong sense of community. They tend to be very nice to outsiders since there is not that many.
