    hello drs, our trip to Krak Des Chevaliers Syria last May was wonderful and the hotel in which we stayed in Damascus has arranged a bus trip to this castle. But it was a long journey to see the only one site, but we had no chance. The travel took 2 hours but nice. The Krak Des Chevaliers is a well preserved castle and it stands 650 meters above sea level. After walking through the entrance, we saw a small town with a large hall, courtyards, church and chapel, aqueducts and living quarters. Really it was worth a visit. But better visit early otherwise it's packed with tourists. I suggest you visit during sunrise because it's a great time to enjoy the view of the castle in a magnificent light. Hope this would be helpful. sorry, no idea on hotels.
