The views are impeccable from any corner of the Hotel. Best views, however, are overlooking Beirut and the sea from 600 meters above sea level. Food is delicious both at La Glycine and the Italian restaurant Il Giardino coupled with prompt and professional service. Climate wise the ideal time to visit is mid March to mid October. Notwithstanding, for classical... More

1 simple advice: Stay away A cup of coffee there would cost you as much as a lunch at a decent restaurant in the area The Mosquitoes would either eat you alive or carry you The plumbing is so old that brown water comes out for a minute before you can wash your hands. Bed sheets smell White Towels are... More

Disclaimer - we only went here for a wedding, so no comments on the rooms. The gardens are beautiful, real Lebanese-style. The views are even more impressive, though, looking down over Beirut and the Mediterranean. You can feel the air is slightly colder up here, and the ride itself up the little mountain villages is certainly worth it.

Al bustan hotel simply ruined my wife birthday. We reserved to stay on a Saturday night. The reservation turned to be on bed basis only so I didn't mind to pay for breakfast getting there. The only good thing about it, is its location overlooking beirut city. Other than it's horrible, oldddd staff with very old furniture, when we arrived... More

I was there for 2 nights in August 2013, during which i stayed less than 12 hours at the hotel; the night before traveling, i noticed several items missing from the room. I checked out and reported the incident to the salesperson I was in contact with, and sent a reminder about the issue in December. 5 months later, I... More

What a gem this hotel is... definitely like stepping back in time - they still use actual brass room keys! The views of Beirut, the Mediterranean and the Broumana mountains are wonderful. I hear the hotel has been recently renovated; but it still reminds me of a colonial bungalow... all in all charming, with a old hotel feel!

This well known Beirut landmark is up in the mountains over Beirut, cooler air in summer is very welcome. It takes about 30 + minutes to drive up from town, 45 minutes from the airport. All rooms have an amazing view; the restaurant is Italian, featuring excellent pastas and pizzas. Sunday lunch is a culinary delight, featuring the finest Lebanese... More

If u happen to be in Lebanon during the months of feb/march, don't let the cold weather fool you into thinking there's not much to do!! Because it's in this time of the year that "al bustan festival" (very interesting art & music festival) is held. Since my husband & I were attending the "tango argentino" show in the hotel's...

Pros: nice view on the sea, pine trees around, eatalian kitchen island in the middle of the italian restaurant, Standard rooms are roomy. cons: the interior design needs some freshening, food is fine but could be better, restaurant staff need further training.

Be aware, this is not a 5* hotel. It was built in 1960 and appears to have the same decor and staff as day it opened. The restaurant is Italian, we were told we couldn't have Leabense food unless we gave 24 hours notice. No beds around the pool and no staff to assist. The two best things about this... More
