L’Annexe · Overview

L’Annexe is an exceptional accommodation for an exceptional city. Baalbek is like no other city in Lebanon. You approach it heart first, tiptoeing towards the rich fabric of its historical and cultural makeup. It is a city that belongs to humanity; perhaps even more than it does to the Lebanese, who are privileged to be its guardians.

L’Annexe · In detail

L’Annexe is a traditional Lebanese home built in the 19th century that includes five rooms and a patio. Light passes through its arched windows, filling the quarters with a golden and ochre glow, and Baalbek’s columns stand proudly in the distance. Its melange of Arab and Greek decor becomes a microcosm of Baalbek’s diverse roots: an encounter of peoples and civilizations, where Phoenicia meets Rome, crossing paths with Arab caravaners resting under Baalbek’s sun, whose glorious light inspired the city’s Greek name, Heliopolis.

L’Annexe · The people

With an infinite love for their hometown Baalbek and a passion for its rich heritage, Ali and his wife Rima—who acquired the place in the 1980s—opened L’Annexe’s doors as an invitation for curious guests to discover true Middle Eastern culture.

L’Annexe · Rooms

L’Annexe offers 4 rooms with twin beds and 1 room with a double bed. Each room has a private bathroom. The rooms are identical in size, comfort and price. Our favorite ones are those located at the back of the house (twin rooms), overlooking the charming inner courtyard. The double room and one of the twin rooms, offer views of the archaeological site. An extra bed can be added in all rooms.

We skirted one of the sides of this hill of ruins, on which a multitude of graceful columns arose, gilded by the setting sun, and recalling to the mind the yellow and dull hues of the marble of the Parthenon, or of the Coliseum at Rome. Alphonse de Lamartine, Travels in the East (1839)
