“A relatively safe bet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

This hotel is Maltese-owned and part of an international chain. It achieves an almost boring normality in a place that is otherwise in transition. The service is enthuisiastic and good. The choice of dining is surprisingly good. There is a pleasant absence of weaponry. The one thing that is an unfortunate reality is that they are a victim of their own success. It is so safe and convenient that it has become a bit of a target of attention for those looking to disrupt the Libyan PM's job. As long as you are prudent and aware of security concerns, it is still the stand-out choice in Tripoli.

Room Tip: Stay below the 12th floor, or whichever rooms the Libyan government are using at that point in time.

I stayed there in a business trip, Tripoli is not a vacation destination, large room with magnificent view, Safe hotel, deserves the amount you pay for the room.
Breakfast Buffet has a huge variety of food, all luxurious stuff. Dinner Buffet is great but rather expensive. you can dine at the Italian restaurant at half price. if you need a classy elite dining experience then you go for the Moroccan restaurant FES at the 26th floor. prior reservation is needed

Room Tip: go high floors as much as you can, you will like the view

Having stayed at this hotel on a reguar basis over the last 22 months, I recommend this hotel for business guests. The executive lounge on the 15th Floor is excellent with all the standard business facilities available, but has ambiance and has proved to be a very useful networking enviroment.The sports facilities are first class with an indoor as well as an outdoor pool and two well equiped gyms.

I have just spent four nights in the Corinthia. It is large and luxurious with plenty of space, and has pretty good security. My room was huge and the bed very comfortable - there was a slight smell of stale cigarette smoke when I arrived (apparently thre are no non-smoking rooms) but the air conditioning dealt with this quite quickly.

There is an excellent pool and several restaurants - the best I felt was the grill/Italian restaurant on the second floor. The breakfast buffet was very good. The hotel could do more to make the most of its plentiful external space - there are few places where one can sit outside and relax with a drink in the evening after a day's work, and it would be worth creating some. All in all a good place to stay in a city where there are still many challenges.

Dear Guest,

first and foremost, thank you for deciding to stay with Corinthia Hotel Tripoli while visiting Libya.

Your positive comments on the hotel in general is much appreciated. We are happy to hear you have enjoyed your time in one our four restaurants, Venezia offering Italian cuisine.

Regarding your suggestion in utilizing the outside space for our guests, we have our Venezia Terrace opened during the summer period with a magic atmosphere where one can relax and enjoy nice Moroccan tea with Arabic sweets.

Thank you again for your feedback and we look forward to welcoming you soon back to Corinthia Hotel Tripoli.

During my long stay at Radisson Hotel, my boss that was staying at Corinthia Hotel, convince me to move to Corinthia Executive Club, he said I would not regret it. I didn’t want to go there because I smoke a lot and at Radisson there is lot of open places to smoke.

As soon as I checked in, lovely receptionist with a dream smile, my boss asked to call Sonia and he introduce me to her, lovely, outgoing personality, she escort me to my Suite and we had a lovely chat.

The Suites are big, well decorated, nice amenities, comfortable bed, and very nice view.
She manages in such a professional and friendly way to control the Executive Club, regardless of all Protocol, Securities, High Government people and demanding guests that are there at the same time, with different purposes, I was amazed.

She never stops to make sure all guests are happy and if any issue arises she makes sure to take care and follow up herself even if it’s not from her department, for example laundry, towels.
She, advice me to try Fes Restaurant and also the Italian one both very good, thank you Sonia.

I congratulate Corinthia Hotel, Ms Sonia, is an exceptional Manager and person.
