3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2011

Our three week stay at Ahiram hotel was relaxing.
Alvire the manager was very helpful with organising all of our requests. The staff were friendly and polite,we looked forward to chatting and joking with them,especially Alvire.
The hotel is situated in the heart of Jbeil, which made it an easy two minute sroll to shops and restaurants.
Watching the sun set was a spectacular sight off our balcony.
Loved it !!!
Great value.

Room Tip: Sea view

Room Tip: Ask for a west facing room on 4th or 5th floor

Our stay was for three weeks. The front office manager Elvire made us very welcome from the minute we walked in, her great smile and pleasant sociable manner told us we had made the right choice. The girls at reception and all the other staff were also very helpful to fulfill our needs. Homemade traditional dishes were made at our request, although not part of the menu DELICIOUS!!
The hotel has nice views with a beautiful Sunset and the position is within walking distance to restaurants and souk (shops).

Room Tip: Ask for a renovated room

We stayed there for two nights, had a room with a beautiful view over the sea. Location of the hotel is perfect, everything is in walking distance, but the street is quiet. Hotel is nice, room was clean, TV didn`t work, but staff fixed it immediately. Parking is available in front of the hotel, free of charge. Wi-fi was free, available in public areas only. Food was good and price reasonable. Staff was friendly and professional. Overall, at that price it`s a good hotel.

We were for one night in the hotel during a cold and windy storm in march. Thanks to the hotel service for all the helpfull advices. Elvire, the manager, will take care and help you in anything you need, checking other other hotels or taxi for the best price... Big and renovated room with balcony, unbeliveable views of the see... Best choice in byblos.

No reservation at Ahiram and arrived December 28 - hotel full on 31st, so Pascale Assaad and Elvira El Khoury tried to find us accommodation elsewhere, then there was a cancellation, so we stayed. Arranged great taxi driver to Baalbek and found us hotel in Baalbek with rooms. Along with Violette, the most wonderful female staff we met in Middle East. Hotel was still being done up but rooms lovely, some with fabulous sea views, the ones without, bigger. Will go back. and recommend to others. And unlike hotel in Baabek NOT a rip off. Reasonably priced in expensive resort beside the sea, though the beach should be cleared of thousands of plastic bottles
