Baron Hotel : Full of history

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 22, 2007

Built at the beginning of the last century, the hotel is steeped in history.
Convienently located and within walking distance of the old city, the rooms are spacious and the bathrooms have been renovated.
Staff is friendly and helpful. Rooms have colour TV with limited satelite channels. Parking for cars is available on-site.
The prices are unfortunately slowly creeping out of the budget range, with singles now at 44 and doubles at 55 US$ (breakfast included).

Unique Quality: One of the oldest and most historical hotels in town.

Antique Character at its Best

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 24, 2006

Built in 1909 to service the needs of Europeans heading for the Holy Land, including such celebrities as Lawrence of Arabia (whose unpaid bill remains in the lobby), Theodore Roosevelt, Agatha Christie, and Charles Lindbergh, the Baron remains as it was with antique plumbing, squeeky beds, and sticky hardwood drawers. But, the charm of the setting is worth the price, and frankly it's not over-priced. Most of the 40 rooms are up a central grand staircase and with a basic rectangular series of rooms along the perimeter walls and in the center. We had a modest room with a view to a side street. Downstairs, the lobby and bar are filled with antique furniture, and after dark expatriates that live in the area like to stand around the bar or lounge in the leather upholstered chairs to swap travel adventure stories. Breakfast is included in the price. The hotel is centrally located such that the best tourist haunts are within easy walking distance. It's easy to arrange joint excursions with others staying in the hotel as the desk clerks are adept at finding vans and drivers, as well as taxis.

Unique Quality: If I were on a student budget, or planning to stay for more than a few days, I'd probably choose another place to stay, but the character of this hotel, both the building and service, makes this a must stay place for Allepo in my book. There are other hotels in the area, so if you come without a reservation, you can find lodging nearby without a problem.

Directions: In the central part of town. Everyone knows where it is.

A good international spot

This hotel has a very unique feel to it. Catering more to western tourists, you'd be much more likely to find and meet foreigners here than some other places. If you are staying here or not, be sure to stop by and ask about T.E. Lawrence's bill.

A Piece of History

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 18, 2004

I'd heard of this place before I left the UK so had made allowances for the splurge. Lawrence of Arabia and Agatha Christie stayed here in its hey day but luxury was seriously lacking when I was here in 1999. Anyway I sort of grew on the place the longer I was there.

Unique Quality: For all its misgivings it does have a great bar and the staff were freindly. It was just one of those things I had to do.

So do I recomend staying here? Probably not, visit the bar during the evening to get a feel of the place. But if you must like me, perhaps just stay the one night.....actually better not do that, the place might grow on you too.
