GPS waypoints for accomodation needed!

Bom dia,
we will be travelling overland from France to Jordan (Amman) through Hungary, Romania, Turkey, Syria and, of course, Jordan. :-)
Do you have any up to date GPS waypoints of recommended accomodation en route?
Campsite or hostel - should be clean and, if possible, with a safe parking for the bikes. The cheaper and nicer the better! :-)
GPS waypoints most welcome as we propably will arrive by night sometimes and a GPS makes it a lot easier to find :-)
Thank you so much!
Silke

Oooooops ....sorry,really my mistake.

The right one is GPS N34 32 46.1 E38 16 28.4, which is a small family run hotel and cost 20EUR double room with breakfast and laundry facilities in the price.
Actually I can't give any detailed coordinates for the camping which is to the right side(100 m before the main entrance of the Temple) of the main road to Palmyra ruins.

Regards,

Simon
