Villa Palmyra: "Not the best place to spend the night" Palmyra Hotel Tip by ANorcaltraveler
Palmyra Hotels: 25 reviews and 18 photos
The Villa Palmyra is a perfectly adequate property, conveniently located on Palmyra's main street. The rooftop restaurant has panoramic views of the ruins, and the breakfast service is good.
Because I had never received an email response to my Internet inquiries, I finally reserved a room at this hotel through an online booking service (several months in advance). However, when I phoned a few days, prior to my arrival (to confirm my reservation), the owner/manager told me he had no record of my reservation. Fortunately, he still had a single room, available. I still have not established if this error was the fault of the hotel or of the booking service.
The rooms are rather small, and those on the street side have only single pane glass, which does little to reduce the street noise in the evening hours. I found it difficult to sleep, even using earplugs.
The hotel advertises they accept credit cards, however when I had visited, I was told the credit card machine was not operating. I was forced to pay in cash.
Out of frustration (with the nightly noise problem), I departed one day earlier, than planned.
I paid $50US, for a single room, in October, 2008.
