This small, 29 room hotel has much to recommend it. The location is central. The restaurant, with a nice Mediterranean ambience and with live music on Thursday and Sunday nights, serves quite decent Lebanese and continental cuisine. The rooms are clean and well appointed; the cable is quite decent for francophones, but has only CNN for the rest of us.
My problem was that I couldn't get steady connectivity for the first 2 days of my 4 day stay. I was invited to try the business center, but it, too, had only sporadic connectivity.
Do not check into this hotel without taking out your laptop at the reception and verifying that the Internet is working.
At $100 per night, B/B, a decent value when the Internet is connected.
