If you're staying in Beirut and want to stay in the eastern part, this is probably your best bet. Set in the Christian and to some extent francophile part of Beirut, the hotel is within a minute of Sassine Square and five minutes of the newly renovated Down Town. The hotel staff is very friendly, but the decor is a bit garish for my taste. I only stayed a night and trying to watch TV in my room I noticed that there were hardly any English channels, but instead a load of French and Arabic channels - not atypical for the eastern side of the city, I guess. Breakfast again was mainly continental, but the Croissants were delicious. In all it was a bit expensive and quite average for the price bracket.
