Beit Al Wali · The place

Named after the ‘wali’ (governor) of the region, who was greatly respected for his kindness and humanity, Beit Al Wali is a place where majesty reigns. This extraordinary 29-room boutique hotel was originally three 18th-century Damascene houses, which were lovingly restored by Edward in 2009.

Hand-crafted wooden ceilings, colourful tiles, and traditional lanterns and chandeliers grace its rooms, while magnificent stonework, pretty plants, and lush vines envelop its outdoor spaces and courtyards.

My husband and I stayed for over a week at this super fabulous hotel located in the heart of beautiful Damascus in the old town. Everything was perfect from the breathtaking beauty of this hotel to customer service to food. 5 stars don’t do justice to this incredible place. Will be back next year. Mona and Walid
