“Unimpressive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Not so impressive. Nothing to write home about and if I was given an all expense paid trip back to visit this place I will not have to think twice before rejecting the offer.

“Interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

It's always great to see a historical place like this still being used today. When we visited they were setting up a stage for a concert later on. The palace itself is full of interesting places to explore, although it doesn't quite live up to it's "Alhambra of Lebanon" tag.

“Historic place but better in winter”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

Nice historic place and nice view of the mountains. But better to avoid visiting in summer. It has touristic spirit of how old people used to rule and live in past.

“Beit Eddine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

Wonderful location and architecture, very similar but smaller that some of the sites in Istanbul. The wood panels and opulence pf some of the rooms is something to see. The best preserved "roman" bath.
