My visits and stays here were in 2009 and 2010. You could stay at the fancy new hotel up the street or you could stay in real history. It is run down but clean. The staff were/are very friendly and can direct you to good shopping. You can stay in the rooms used by T.E. Lawrence, Agatha Christie, W. Churchill,... More

Stayed here in May 2010; it was a highlight of a fantastic trip in Syria before the war started. Loved the grumpy, but eventually friendly owner. So sad to think it's now closed, and all the tragedy of Syria. Huge bath that took ages to fill. Whole place was very down-at-heel. So pleased that we decided to stay there, and... More

As others have written about The Baron Hotel, I also had the opportunity to step back into time while traveling through Syria in 1990 and experience this unbelievable location. The images are not as crystal clear in my mind since it has been so long since I last was in the Baron but the feeling I had when I first... More

Of course there are greater losses in Syria, but it was with a heavy heart and only wonderful memories that I read that the conflicts in Aleppo have forced the Baron to close. I remember sitting in the lobby in 1990/91 looking at hotel guest book....Agatha Christie, Lawrence, Freya Stark and more. It has been in same family for a... More

Not great but what history. When I stayed there many years ago Walid the manager looked after us very well. Breakfast of boiled eggs and coffee every morning. The bar was lit by one single light bulb. Settees falling apart and real feel of old times. You could imagine Lawrence of Arabia walking thru the doors. I am writing this... More

If you're visiting Aleppo, you might as well make it a special experience and avoid staying anywhere else. Baron Hotel really is the place to be. Wonderful bar, friendly atmosphere, amazing rooms - full of stories. The only down(ish)side is the breakfast (quite modest) but it didn't matter a lot to me as the city's full of amazing food waiting... More

Baron Hotel is one of the most authentic and fascinating places we have ever experienced. It was like it had been frozen in time and we left the Baron feeling deeply privileged having experienced such a truly unique and charming gem - living history! If in Aleppo, do not miss this step back in the times of Agatha Christie and... More

One of the most atmospheric places I've ever stayed in; as other reviewers have said it's not up to 5* luxury modern standards, but that's not why you would stay here. The rooms are huge, clean and are furnished with antiques from the heyday of the hotel. The guy who runs the bar downstairs speaks French, little English, but that's... More

As a lot of the other reviewers have commented the Baron has its flaws but none of them should put you off staying here unless you are insistent on 5* luxury. The Baron oozes character and staying in the hotel is like stepping back 50 years. The rooms and spacious, clean and comfortable. The staff are reasonably helpful and the... More

The Baron Hotel exceeded my expectations. It is true that its rooms have seen better days, but our room was clean and comfortable, and we loved having a balcony that overlooked the main street. The feeling of faded glory that one finds in many places in the Middle East was definitely present here, and if you want all the amenities... More

“If you don't need a lot of room, stay in Lawrence of Arabia's room, if you can afford it (it's not expensive, just more), need space or want to stay where many historic figures stayed, take the Presidential suite. It's worth it.”
