Palmyra hotel had its glory. Built 140 years ago, the hotel hosted queen ,kings, world leaders and celebrities. The hotel had its golden days, but unfortunately it needs to much work to host visitors nowadays. It should be turned into museum. It has real treasures of old carpets and furniture.The view from the hotel is stunning. It is overlooking the Baalbek ruins. If you like history more than luxury, book one night at the hotel.
Te his hotel is full of positive vibes. Where all the staff Is nice and lovely. Where you meet history and fun in from of the magestic roman temple. The walls of this hotel still respiring the beautiful moments of the festival and it's guests.
It is a hotel with a great history behind. There were many important guests staying here. The furniture and decor highlights this historic connections, the place has a great atmosphere, it is simply a pleasure to be here. It is worth knowing that that below they hotel there are possibly ruins of the Roman amphitheatre. I recommend going on the roof of the hotel, as there is a great panoramic view over the archeological park and the temples. All the staff members are super friendly and helpful.
This is by far the best choice in Baalbeck. Some things may be improved, but the great architecture, the details everywhere, the remembrances of many important visitors and some other secrets that you can discover, replaces and excuses any little problem. Everybody is ready to help or to tell you a good story. Personnel is well prepared in different languages. The traditional Lebanese breakfast they serve is a great experience. Excellent for families, friends or large groups visiting the amazing ruins and the Bekaa Valley
This hotel has been continuously open since 1874, and hosted many royals and dignitaries. While lacking in some modern amenities, it more than makes up for it with its built-in history, and being smack at the center of everything worth seeing in Baalbek, Lebanon, which is a lot. Within a comfortable walking distance you can find four of the Roman Temples of Baalbek, the Old Bazaar, the Shia Shrine of Sayedeh Khawleh, and the Stone of the Pregnant Woman. Very friendly staff and home made breakfast. It’s a great place to spend a few days and enjoying one of the highest concentrations of touristic sites in the Middle East. As an added bonus, the area was very safe and walkable. The only place we needed to dress modestly was at the shrine. We weren’t stopped to show ID anywhere we went in Baalbek. We would go again.…
