Lonely Planet review
Welcome to one of the most famous hotels in the Middle East, and while it may have lost most of its polish, it still retains plenty of ramshackle charm. Public areas (including the famous bar and the sitting room with a signed bill from TE Lawrence) are looking worse for wear, and rooms (even those that have been recently renovated) have peeling paintwork. Although it’s overpriced, it’s all about atmosphere and history here.
Our independent authors have visited Baron Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Aleppo.
