The location is highly good, but the staff at the reception is awful, we requested that they book at the Music Hall, but they insisted that we go to the music hall they offered and; when we did not accept, their attitude was so bad. We got shocked!

The hotel rooms are clean and tidy with views towards the Mediterranean and the Corniche which is two streets away. The American University Lebanon is in walking distance as... More

We stayed in Charles hotel for three nights. The room, especially the bathroom is very dirty. There were many insects on the wall and in the bath tub. My daughter, 11 y/o, used my t-shirt to cover her pilow. The bed smelled terrible. Sleeping in my bed was not very different from sleeping on a yacht boat since every spring... More

This is a low-priced hotel in Beirut, and the city can be very expensive. The hotel is tired to say the least, with peeling wallpaper, worn carpets, and mould in the bathrooms. It's like stepping back in time to the 1970s. But the location is not bad, and a reasonable attempt is made to keep the hotel clean. But leaving... More
