An experience that anyone staying in Aleppo should not miss out on, unless your preference in hotels is the anonymous hermetically sealed box. This hotel is steeped in history and is so laid back it's like home from home. Faded and threadbare it may be but that is part of it's charm. However it was getting a bit of a... More

If you want to take your stand in a part of history, this is the place. The high ceiling and the dusky corridor will bring you to the days of early 20th centuries. All the facilities are so old, but the central heating works well and you will feel confortable even in wintertime. My fabourite place is the bar, of... More

Staying here is a really unique experience. The exterior is stunning, as is the bar. You could probably soak up most of the glory of the place by spending an evening in the bar but we decided to book 1 night here and then spend 2 nights at the Mandaloun. This turned out to be a pretty good plan as... More

I stayed only one night in Baron Hotel. Receptionist was not so friendly but he gave me good info about the Aleppo, e.g., restaurant, train schedule etc. The room I stayed was one of the cheapest room but I should stay better room where famous people stayed. My room and bathroom was very clean and could get hot water. They... More

Heavenly - a reason in itself to visit Syria. Hard to book a room even well in advance, shabby, holes in the carpets, run to seed but like stepping into a 1936 film. When I was there in 2007 most rooms were $40 but I paid $70 for the suite where Assad snr stayed in the 70s. Please stay here... More

The Baron hotel is clearly very old and has lots of stories to tell! It has a lot of charachter, and it's a lovely old building. The bedrooms are clean, a bit basic and uninspiring, but functional. Some of the shutters on our windows had clearly seen better days and so every time the windows were opened pigeons tried to... More

Faded grandeur is the right description for this hotel. Rooms are big and clean even though I spotted once a cockroach as the hotel is really old and ill-maintained. The stuff was friendly, breakfast was OK but you need to have a big imagination to experience the glory of the past. Very expensive for what you get.

Stayed here in June 2010 with business group doing weekend tourist outing. Staff is very nice but the place needs some help. We had a suite to accommodate married couple plus 12 year old and in the two rooms there were 4 broken air conditioners. WHen one stops working, they install the next without taking out the broken one. The... More

Yes the Hotel Baron a relic of the past. Yes, its well past its prime, in desperate need of major renovation or knock-down, but its still has the charm & character to entice me back again one day. If your preference is for antisepictally clean chain hotels, then you won't like the Baron. If you put up with a bit... More

The Baron Hotel is full of history and somewhere that locals and tourists alike are very prouod of. The rooms are certainly older, but the hospitality and location can not be beaten. If you love history, you will appreciate going back in time at the Baron Hotel
