Damascene Scene / Hg2 MUST-STAY

Everything at Beit Zafran Hotel de Charme is centred around it’s central courtyard; resplendent in marble and basaltic stone, it is here that guests can kick back on one of the comfy armchairs and listen to the sound of the trickling fountain that crowns the sumptuous space. Traditional Syrian design is carried through to the interiors, too, with a grand reception hall that boasts nine-metre high ceilings, ornate wooden furnishings and richly patterned fabrics. 12 extremely well-appointed rooms await upstairs – all with en-suite bathrooms and some with al fresco terraces – but our favourite place to hunker down for the night is the private wing; comprising three guest rooms, a private courtyard and terrace, guests can relax here in true superstar style. When it comes to dining Damascus-style, Beit Zafran Hotel de Charme has two options; the rooftop terrace, on which breakfast, lunch and dinner can be taken, or the ultra-chic Monneh restaurant. Wherever you decide to indulge, the head chef uses only the finest local ingredients to deliver mouthwatering Oriental/international cuisine. And no hotel would be complete with a suitably stylish bar to prop up, and here it comes in the fabulous form of the Shai Lounge which serves everything from Damascene flower tea to strong Arabic coffee. A must-stay.
