I stayed there in the middle of October (actually went there for my birthday), during a six week visit to the country; and 18 months previously. I love Balbek, its quiet, friendly and really small. It is shameful, that it receives such bad press from the European and US government sites. Balbek shouldn't be confused, with Ras Balbek and Hermel,...

The room was clean, quite comfortable. The price is reasonable. Location is perfect - near the bus station and the ruins. The only problem was the loudly gests who arrived late at night and made a lot of noises. There was no reaction of the staff and I filled not enough self-confident to look outside my room and ask them...

Baalbeck is not really famous for its hotel but Pension Jamal is probably one of the better ones. It is quite basic and the owner can be moody at times but the rooms are clean and the pension is ideally located just few steps from the ruins. We have seen quite a lot of "staff "and were not always sure...

I was there in wintertime and had to specifically ask for a room with heating. (oil-heater). It gets really cold at night. The bed had one sheet to lie on but none...

Situated very close to the ruins of Baalbeck, this place is run by very friendly and helpful staff. The room I stayed in was larger than I expected and had a nice bathroom ensuite. I'd suffered from traveller's diarrhoea when I arrived and the owner and night-watchman were very kind and came to my room to see if I needed...

Jammal consists of a pension and a hotel, and is located in two buildings straight across eachother on the main strip. In winter time, only the pension part is used, but when it is more busy, the hotel part across the street also opens. The location is very close to the baalbeck ruins, but the entire town is rather small...

Unfortunately, there are no good places to stay in Baalbek. Palmyra Hotel is a dump, when we checked it out in April 2010 it was cold, dirty and without sheets in the army beds... Jupiter Hotel was as bad. Jammals place had some kind of bed-linen, towles and our own bathroom. Diesel heater for warm water (took hours to get...

“I stayed in the same room on both occasions, just have a look first. It wasn't at all noisy, at least after 10pm, which is reasonable.”
