The outside of The Golden Walls is very non-assuming, but do not let this fool you. Inside this you will find a large spacious lobby with amply seating for a mid-day coffee. Sadly the lovely outdoor patio was closed due to the cold weather. Nevertheless the patio offers a great view of the city’s and the great old city walls....

The hotel is pretty quite: The most excellent part is the garden tomb is directly behind the hotel and it is a skip and jump from the Damascus Gate. The location is perfect...

We arrived in Golden Walls by chance, without reservation and late in the evening. However, the reception clerk greeted us cheerfully and managed to find a room for us. It was rather small, with a window facing a parking space, but the bed seemed fresh and clean, so we took it. Breakfast buffet did it for us. Although the veg...

Literally 5 mins away from Al Aqsa Mosque, markets and food courts nearby, nice, neat and tidy hotel. New lounge looks topnotch staff really friendly. You get buffet in the morning and evening. The menu can be improved with a little more variety. Apart from that excellent hotel. Highly recommended

Dear valued guest, I am sorry that you had such a stay with us. We are always attentive to all the details. Perhaps we have slipped somewhere! We are remodelling all our rooms and Lobby area. This is a long process that needs a lot of attention from our side. We are terribly sorry for any inconvenience we might have...

I enjoyed my stay in this hotel. The staff were very friendly, and on the Friday night of my stay there was a festive evening with Arabic music and dancing! (I think this is a regular weekly fixture). The food was delicious - a wide range of Arabic dishes and I certainly never went hungry! The only slight downside for...
