A lovely place to stay in Beirut with my two boys and my wife. The staff was very kind and helpful and we also enjoyed the restaurant with its excellent French cuisine. I can't recommend this place enough and I will rebook as soon a possible. Next holiday in 1 month ... and counting!

An amazing dinner! We went with our friends for a night out and had the most delicious meal. We live in Lebanon so I cannot review the hotel but I will review the restaurant. Upon entering it feels very gracious. An subdued elegance with touches of warm colors and interesting designs everywhere. A place that is served by its owners... More

The food was fantastic with the freshest and best quality chosen ingredients. Breakfast in the garden daily was the perfect way to start a business day. I was able to... More

I had the pleasure of staying at the Villa Clara for a few nights in December, and it couldn't have been a better place to stay. Marie-Helene and Olivier were extremely welcoming hosts and were really helpful with planning visits and travel arrangements and updating me on what was going on in the city – and they even came to...

A couple friends and I had dinner here (didn't stay, so this review is only for dinner), and it was excellent. Two of us had beef filet with foie gras and one had the chicken stew (I forgot the French name; came with pasta) and all were delicious (the bread is also fresh and tasty).

Situated in the food-drink-nightleife area. However in a quit street. Included a small garden for drinks and breakfast. The designer had greta eye for details without it being too polished. If you do not like the BIG 5 hotels, this is a great alternative. Friendly staff and great restaurant, run by the French owners & cuisinier.
