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). Many steak places in Beirut... More

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.

We spent our wedding night there. The authentic nature of the place made it such a magical stay. Villa Clara was our something blue on our wedding day. Enjoy the place with its historical spirit yet modern touch.

Villa Clara is my idea of the PERFECT hotel. Run by people who care not only about their hotel and their restaurant - but most of all about the people that stay there. they are interested in everything and themselves interesting. My room was simple but beautifully decorated - with a handblown vintage Murano glass chandelier. the furniture in my... More

Staying @Villa Clara is like stepping into your own home - just here is people who wants to make your stay pleasant:-) I love the concept of "a home away from home". With Villa Clara this is true. The restaurant offers excellent meals from Olivier's kitchen. Wine selection is very decent for the "Home away from home" concept.
