My wife and I stayed here for three nights recently and thought it was great. If you're looking for luxury, keep looking, but if you want a small, clean room in a good location, the Embassy provides great value for the money.
The staff was very friendly and helpful, the check in was smooth and easy. The room was on the small side with zero frills, but it was clean and featured a nice balcony overlooking a lovely garden. There was no closet, but there was a full-sized bureau to hang clothing. The bathroom was small, but clean.
The location is wonderful, on a fairly quiet street in the Hamra district, with easy walking to all sorts of fun restaurants and nightlife. You should note that the Hamra district, in general, is pretty loud, mainly from taxis and cars that honk their horns continually. While this did not disturb our sleep, if you're looking for a super-quiet location, keep looking.
I also highly recommend taking a trip to Byblos, the amazing ancient fort about 30 minutes outside of the city. A taxi can get you there for a reasonable price. Don't eat before you go -- there are a number of outstanding restaurants on site.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay at the Embassy. We were just looking for a clean, inexpensive room to sleep, shower, and store our belongings while we explored the city. The Embassy provided this with no hassles. We would return.
