Lonely Planet review
Built around 1900, renovated in 2007, and overlooking the ruins, the Zenobia has the most character of any of Palmyra's hotels. The comfortable, generously sized rooms are plush with kilims and Orientalist paintings on the walls, and mother-of-pearl inlaid wooden furniture. Book rooms 101 to 106 for views of the ruins. The hotel also has Palmyra's best restaurant. Credit cards accepted.
