Tub with a View

Although still solid, Hotel Windsor is now but a shell of its former glory – its once-lavish fixtures and fittings a victim of the war and Syrian occupation – doors, frames, beams, metal – all long ago looted.

On an upper floor, a lone bathtub is the only reminder of what once might have been.

In its heyday, Hotel Windsor  played host to many of the Arab world’s famous performers, guests came from near and far.
