In Damascus

Charming Boutique Hotel in the historic center of Damascus

Damascus… A heaven of Hidden Treasures


“…. No recorded event has occurred in the world but Damascus was in existence to receive the news of it.

Go back as far as you will into the vague past, there was always a Damascus.

To Damascus, years are only moments, decades are only flitting trifles of time.

She measures time, not by days and months and years, but by the empires she has seen rise, and prosper and crumble to ruin. She is a type of immortality.

She saw Greece rise, and flourish two thousand years, and die. In her old age she saw Rome built; she saw it overshadow the world with its power; she saw it perish…. She has looked upon the dry bones of a thousand empires, and will see the tombs of a thousand more before she dies….”

Mark Twain



The Hotel


 A collection of 3 ordinary Damascene houses of the 18th century were renovated in 2007 to present you the culture and tradition in a modern luxurious and spectacular design… The distinguished style of the 18th century is captured in the hotel’s hand crafted wooden ceilings, the oriental architecture is highlighted in various spaces which lead to an awesome scenery from the past.

Some people come for our location, as being so close to everything makes your stay so much easier. Other visitors like our staff best, because all of them are always ready to help with a smile. To other guests, it’s about the newly-renovated rooms and the freshly-squeezed orange juice, which we serve each morning in Al-Wali Terrace.

           There are plenty of Boutique hotels in the center of Damascus, but none like Al Wali Hotel

            Warmth, courtesy, and hospitality are the special ingredients we can add to your stay.


Here at Al-Wali Hotel we are like one big family. Our staff have been working together regularly for over 10 years, we enjoy an atmosphere of harmony and warmth which is reflected in all we do and in the genuine welcome we offer to every guest.
