Cham Palace Hotel is a good alternative for a hotel in Damascus. It is centrally located with a traditional flavor that other big hotels in Damascus lack. The lobby - reception area is really great - oriental traditional and also very refreshing. The rooms are very clean but pretty small. Services are also very good.

The hotel was decorated typically Syrian specially the lobby, it was nice and interesting.Comparing with most of the hotels in Syria that are not standard, Cham Palace is rather acceptable & standard. some rooms are too small. the receptionist told us that the swimming pool is private for women before midnight, but it was not true.

Well, you have to consider that you are in Syria and Syria is a poor country. So, this is a 5 star hotel in Syria but not in Europe, for example. I enjoyed my stay (2 nights) and I don't payed for them so I can't complain. That apart, the hotel interior is beautiful, it has 6 restaurants where I... More

One of the best things is the location which means you can go walking to most areas of Damascus. There's lots of small details which could add up to be annoying - there's a certain indifference among the staff, for example, when checking in, or complaining that something doesn't work. Things have changed in the past year or two and... More

Very elegant Hotel with obvious long tradition in the heart of Damascus. The old town in the vicinity is quick reachable. The room I had was rather small, furniture a bit old. Sleeping was ok. The atmospere in the hotel is rather elegant, it smells a bit about the old days. The breakfast buffet is well equipped with nearly everything.... More
