“You can stay reasonably in same hotel where famous people stayed.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2010

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 served simple but nice break fast in beautiful old dining room. The waiter dressed well and he gave me good service.

There was a bar in the ground floor, and it was good to have drink in that Muslim country. Also hotel owner was friendly and he taught me basic Arabic and it was great to kick off my middle eastern trip.

Overall I was satisfied to stay in this Baron hotel.

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 unless you like modernity and luxury. Awful breakfast. Enormous enormous fun. A. Christie finished Murder on Orient Express here. T.E. Laurence decamped without paying his bill.

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 get into our room! But it's a charming hotel.
The old man at reception is very friendly and can arrange reasonably priced tours and gives very good advice about where to visit in the old town. The location of the hotel is good, its about a five minute walk to the souks of the old town; about ten minutes to the 'christian' area, and is right in the heart of the modern town, although this is a bit charachterless.
The bar is fantastic... you can imagine all the history that has happened and the stories that have been told in years gone by!
It's a nice, quirky hotel. If bland, identical chain hotels are your thing then this is not the place for you.

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 room was unpleasant with no air, even with all windows and all doors open. The desk sent someone up several times who fiddled with it and left but never explained that it was just broken. When the toilet also stopped flushing, we changed rooms. There were no triples available so hotel put us into 2 separate rooms at same cost. The other rooms were smaller but fine and comfortable.
Terrace is lovely in the evening, and if you sit in the far corner, you can get slow but free wifi. Make sure to go into the lobby room on the right, with memorabilia from TE Lawrence, etc.

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 of grottiness, then the Baron will reward you with its historic charm.

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
