Lonely Planet review
As unmissable as the ruins themselves, the Palmyra is a little preserved piece of 19th-century Middle Eastern history, with guests as diverse as Jean Cocteau, General de Gaulle and the Shah of Iran having graced its portals. Comfortable, creaky rooms might be showing their age, and the rattle of elderly plumbing might disturb a sound sleep, but a night here is atmospheric, spooky and unforgettable. There’s a snug little bar, a restaurant and – to bypass the creaks and groans – a more luxurious annexe (doubles US$100).
Our independent authors have visited Palmyra Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Baalbek.
