Beit al-Mamlouka Hotel
Beit al-Mamlouka (Arabic: بيت المملوكة) is a luxury boutique hotel located in the old city of Damascus, Syria. It was established in 2005 in the city's oldest borough, the Christian quarter of Bab Touma ("St. Thomas' Gate").
The hotel is a restoration of a 17th-century Damascene house and offers 8 different rooms each named after a famous historic figure of Arab or Muslim history, like Averroes and Baybars. There are original paintings and features from the 18th century, together with a mid 16th century archway and a 200-year Christian fresco.
