Syria: Damascus – Beit Alwali Hotel
We stayed in an absolutely stunning hotel in the heart of the old Damascus, in the Christian Quarter. The hotel – Beit Alwali – is a carefully restored 18th century traditional Damascene house. A simple entry door from the outside, it has a huge and lavishly decorated interior with stonework, mosaics, woodwork – every little detail! It was well above any expunctions and it’s sad that there are hardly any tourists. Hopefully the situation will improve and the country will open up again.
