I stayed for 2 nights on business in early December. Classy hotel with well trained courteous staff. Check in was easy and quick. Room was spacious and clean, the latter being a huge relief after my negative experiences at the Amman Kempinski in Jordan immediately before moving on to Lebanon.
It is located towards the edge of the city, a good distance from the action. This suited me as it was near where I needed to be on business, but may not suit everyone. It is perched up top of a very steep hill, so taxis are a must. The view over the sea to the city is fantastic. There are no other eating options nearby.
There were more staff than guests. The place reminded me of the abandoned hotel that the mad Jack Nicholson looks after in The Shining! The place was just deserted. They have also gone for a weird Titanic theme for a couple of the bars and restaurants - did someone fail to tell them the Titanic sank disastrously?
Maybe because it was winter, but the main restaurant was closed in the evening, and eating options were extremely limited. I got room service which was pretty good. The unavailability of a decent variety of eating options takes the hotel down to a 3 rating. Breakfast was good.
The room key system was weird. Instead of the normal plastic credit card key, they give you a short pointed metal fob. You have to hold the point of the fob onto a red spot on top of the door handle. It has to be absolutely bang on or it won't open. I struggled a couple of times when I was stone cold sober, so when guests have a few drinks, my bet is the hotel staff spend a lot of time assisting guests to open their room doors!
