Spent there 2 weeks with family. Even though we paid for the hotel parking we were not allowed to drive the car directly there. Instead we where asked to give the car to the "valet parking" instead. Staff is friendly but some of them lack reactivity like the previously mentioned valet parking and the restaurants room service. We rent a... More

Positives: Large, bright well-equipped bedrooms, quiet location, reasonable food. Nice open-air restaurant space out the back. Small but well-equipped, modern gym. Small, nice pool area on the roof suitable for 'dipping'. On the other hand, the service is very variable. For example, the breakfast staff are very inattentive and unprofessional. The reception staff are easily distracted - with several all... More

I have stayed 4 times in the last year, and was holding off on my review until they transitioned from the soft opening. But that has yet to happen, so here it is... A very positive experience, although small items keep changing with every visit, as they are trying to find their stride. The new internet set up is fast,... More

It could have been so nice! A new, modern, tasteful hotel in a rather central and quiet location in Beirut. A cool rooftop pool, stylish rooms, all the potential for a great stay. BUT! And this is a big big BUT! I don´t know who in management had the idea to rent out the garden for events like birthday parties,... More

The Smallville Hotel has great potential, but even after the first visit in October 2013 when it was just opened to a recent visit in May 2014 they are still undegoing an identity crisis....I can't figure out who they want toi attract - if business people, then they are sorely lacking; i.e. no business center, very slow wi-fi connections (free...

Very nice hotel, stylish, comfortable, high-tech, friendly staff and most important clean. Quiet area and close to everything. I recommend it and would definitely come back! It is however still a Soft Opening so I hope they keep the same level when it's officially opened.

Eventhough it didnt open officially they met all my expectation with all the way. As location, clean and silent room, comfortable bed, amazing design, city view rooftop pool, and professional staff. Only one word %100 worth the value and money. One of the best hotel I ever stayed so far.

This is a very nice hotel - as yet, not 'officially opened'. In other words - it's open on what seems to be a pilot basis. I'm here on a business trip - and it is an excellent alternative to other more traditional 4-5 star business hotels. Everything is new - so new that the service staff aren't quite sure... More

There is nothing small about The Smallville Hotel. Staff: Excellent. Service: Superb. Housekeeping: Couldn't be better. Laundry: Super. Food: Tasty. Rooms: Nothing to envy from a 5* hotel. My 10 days and expectations were met, if not exceeded.
