The hotel's location is very good, close to down town and Hamra st. Excellent free internet connection in the room, It was a big one with a nice view and a convenient price. Breakfast was ok -not for free- and cleanliness of the rooms is average.

The hotel's location is jut perfect. 15 minutes walk from the famous Hamra shopping street, 15 minutes by taxi from downtown. The service was excellent and the breakfast was good. The rooms were very spacious. The Wi Fi was free only at the lobby.

We stayed at Bella Riva Hotel as a family on our last visit to Beirut. The hotel staff are very friendly. They upgraded our room and accommodated our needs as a family with a toddler. The Hotel's location is convenient to many attractions, including Hamra street, which is a 10-minute walk away.

Been there with a friend and got an amazing room for a very reasonable price. The guys working there and in the reception are always smiling and extremely helpful. The location is wonderful between two of the most famous streets in Beirut; Al Hamra and Al Raousha

The location is very good close to Hamra and Raouche, the room was spacious and comfortable with a big room for extra bed, though the Furnature and the hotel itself is a bit old, but this hotel is great value of many for a family. Breakfast is good. The only thing that is really missing is an electric kettle.

They serve a typically lebanese breakfast but it is also possible to... More
