Location: This hotel lies in front of Zeituna Bay, a newly reconstructed marina lined with cafes and restaurants, in a backdrop of modern glass buildings and designer shops, not too far from the historic center. This is all a plus since you have seaview, and forget you are in a troubled city.
Hotel: Grandieuse marble entrance and halls. Wonderful pool with beachchairs. Spacious, luxurious rooms and bathroom. Amazing complimentary sweets (enticing one to buy from the ground floor). Great views on the pool and bay.
Price & service: Not cheap, but expected for this quality in Beirut. We did have a service glitch, but it may well have been an exception as staff was otherwise very helpful. Breakfast is one of the best I have ever tried, especially the local section.
