A classic style hotel with comfortable lounge areas, a very charming breakfast venue and a good bunch of employees. It is well located, has close proximity to most of the attraction areas and transportation is never a problem. Clean, comfortable taxis with English and French speaking, polite drivers are always ready in front of the Hotel. Breakfast is a MUST-... More

Excellent room, excellent service in one of the premier hotels of the Middle East. Over the years I've stayed at The Phoenicia, a Beirut landmark, and the service was always been excellent. My recent visit, reconnecting with friends in Lebanon, proved to be no different. Excellent service - from doormen, front desk, housekeeping to waiting staff. The hotel is located... More

it's a good hotel, but the security scanning every time you enter the lobby is quite annoying, especially if you're staying for longer periods. I didn't find much variety in the breakfast. the Rooms however are excellent (ignore the view).

Excellent services and room product are only enhanced by the breadth and quality of the breakfast buffet. Nice area of the city, with the marina filled with cafes right across the street. Also convenient for a run or longer walk along the beachfront drive.

Me and my husband stayed for seven days. The hotel is very nice with a variety of lounges and dining areas to sit in. The view is amazing. The food was great, service was fast and professional. It's walking distance to downtown Solidaire area. Staff are very friendly and helpful.

All in all this is potentially the best business hotel to stay at in Beirut. Very safe, free wifi, good location. you could also get a great view room and the breakfast buffet offers a huge variety of both international but more importantly Lebanese food. The only downside to the hotel is that the room seemed a bit outdated and... More

The rooms are comfortable and have that luxury vibe (we stayed on the 17th floor overlooking the marina - beautiful view). The breakfast was fantastic! Possibly the best breakfast buffet I have had.
