We're In Syria
Hi, we are in Damascus at the moment & can ask around at a few hotels here. We plan to leave the country tomorrow so I'm sorry we can't spread the word much further.
It's a shame that people have taken to adding politically charged posts on such a sensitive site. All I will say is that this is one of the friendliest most hospitable places I have ever been.
If you have contacted the Canadian Consulate here I would expect that they would make it their own urgent priority to contact hotels etc here - most backpackers in Syria follow a fairly standard route & invariably end up at the same hotels, all of which have to keep personal details of their guests. We have found when we call some hotels (to book) their English isn't so good, but the consulate should have Arabic speakers who could call all of the main budget hotels quite easily.
