Where to stay in Palmyra

Before the war, Palmyra offered a solid set of mid-range hotels and budget backpacker lodgings, plus some higher-end establishments. The conflict changed the character of this area and affected its tourist appeal. You can still find basic rooms with air-conditioning, many offering quick access to the famed ruins. The more luxurious options provide rooms with a view of the ancient city.
