We stayed at Golden Tulip Hotel de Ville in July 2012 for a personnal trip, The location is GREAT! It is in Achrafiye, which is an upscale neighbourhood in Beyrouth. It is right next to Universite St-Joseph, so the it gets full of students sometimes by day, which makes it even more sympathetic. It is in a very calm side street, but at 20-30 minutes walk from downtown Beyrouth so it is very convenient.
There is also a travel agency next to it, where we booked a tour, and from where the bus leaves, which makes the location of the hotel very practical.
The rooms are small, but confortable and very clean. All rooms seem to have a private balcony, and the view from our balcony (as anywhere in Beyrouth) was breathtaking (from far)
There was construction when we went, so sometimes it might get noisy.
The price is very reasonable in a city where hotel rooms seem to be not less than 200$ a night.
Golden Tulip in 5 points:
1. Very good location in a quiet neighbourhood but not far from the action
2. Small rooms, but very clean and confortable
3. Expensive breakfast: NOT worth it
4. Free wi-fi with DAILY passwords
5. Very friendly staff
