The interior is full of luxury and there is no problem with the service. The location is very good and you can see many things about Beirut during your stay, the concierge will help you. If... More

The first time I slept in this hotel was in 2006, during the 35 days of war between Israel and Hezbollah. I came back a lot of times in the next years and discovered that time seems to stand still at the Intercontinental Phoenicia Beirut: everything, marbles, swimming pool, beautiful spacious rooms, excellent service and discreet gaze on the sea,...

This hotel plays down its Intercontinental connection but nevertheless operates as one. Some of the suave French pre-Lebanese war character has faded in keeping with the current trend but it still has style. Good restaurants. My favourite is the Italian at street level. I was lucky enough to have a sea view room overlooking the swimming pool and across the... More

It has been a fabulous experience even though it was a short Break. The room setting was excellent, the breakfast is to die for, and the staff are all most accommodating. I feel that when going there It's like going home. Definitely worth a return visit.
