The Phoenicia hotel is situated in the heart of Beirut, by a very small walking distance from Zaituna Bay , a great waterfront with lots of cafes and restaurant. You can also jog on the corniche in the morning. It is also close to Beirut downtown ( 10 to 15 minutes walk). It is also not far from Achrafieh, Gemayzeh,... More

The Phoenicia is one of those rare, impressive hotels that is almost as famous as the destination. On occasion they don't live up to expectations, but in this instance my expectations were more than surpassed. To begin with the welcome was gracious and friendly. I was escorted to my room and shown around the features. The room was extrmely comfortable... More

Clean, luxurious, with a lot of amenities. Despite being a bit dated, the Phoenicia Intercontinental is a great choice for a business stay. Excellent pick-up service from the airport, very friendly and accommodating staff, and modern meeting rooms (despite a small screen and lack of back up projectors). Also s great breakfast buffet, and several onsite restaurants for variety. I... More

Phoenicia has all features that are required for a 5 Star location, but again, people make the difference. It starts when you enter. The fact that there is a security control make you feel safe, but would it be more expensive, if the security guys smile? After the car valet it is the second person that you meet. the rooms...
