Beit Al Mamlouka · Boutique Hotel in Damascus · L’Hôte Libanais

Beit Al Mamlouka · Overview

Embrace the spirit of a bygone era just steps away from the bustling souks at Beit Al Mamlouka, an architectural gem and exquisite home away from home in the heart of Damascus’s Bab Touma neighbourhood.

Beit Al Mamlouka · The place

In a city that zealously protects its past, Beit Al Mamlouka is a pure triumph. This remarkable eight-room boutique property — located in a narrow cobbled street of the old city — dates back to the 17th century and has successfully retained many of its original features.

A mid-16th-century archway and a 230-year-old fresco are among the highlights. One look out of the window and you’ll be treated to a glorious view of the terraces or the central courtyard, where breakfast is served beside the fountain, under the shade of sweet-smelling citrus trees.

Beit Al Mamlouka · The story

Beit Al Mamlouka’s unmistakable charm is enriched by the warmth of Antoun, who took over the ownership of the hotel from May. It was May’s dream to restore an old Damascene home; and now, thanks to her hard work and Antoun’s unremitting devotion, this exceptional property wholeheartedly welcomes guests from far and wide to share in its proud heritage.
