It made me feel as if i am in Paris or elsewhere. The ambience was like nowhere else very charming and very romantic. The recommendation of the...

Villa Clara was my greatest experience in Beirut. I was greeted by the two owners Olivier and Marie-Heleine at my arrival, who gave me a quick lesson about the history of the beautiful 2 stories house they take care of and of its neighborhood, and were on the premises all day and were always glad to get out of their...

Villa Clara must be precisely the kind of place people have in mind when they call Beirut the Paris of the East. This 7-room boutique hotel is glamorous in the most comfortable, understated way and has the best French cooking this side of the Mediterranean. Owners Marie-Helene and Olivier - chic, interesting and well traveled - have a unique way...

We, and our two young daughters, spent three glorious days and nights at Villa Clara. Within hours it had become a home away from home. The place oozes with charm and character. The reception/dining/bar area is replete with stylish and whimsical décor, not to mention fresh flowers everywhere. Our room was beautifully appointed and the hotel found a way to...

A hotel with 7 rooms only, very individual. Everything here is linked to art! It is not a museum, it is sort of living gallery. The hotel has a restaurant with fabulous food. Amazing. I was thrilled by the breakfast. Home-made bread and yoghurt!

Fabulous villa in heart of Beirut. Restored with grace, authenticity and charm. The art work and decor are breath taking. And the plumbing is modern. The owner Marie Helene is as gracious and welcoming as the villa itself. A treat for those who eschew chain hotels.

My girlfriend and I enjoyed the experience at Villa Clara. This is not a typical hotel, this is a journey to explore arts, history and enjoy an amazing culinary experience, all in one place, in the middle of Beirut. Rooms are greatly decorated and full of charm. Location is great and the best part is the service and the welcoming...

During my first visit to Beirut, I stayed two weeks at Villa Clara. I'm a frequent traveler and always try to find hotels with a special touch. And boy what a special touch Villa Clara has! The whole building and its interior have a charm that certainly is unique to Beirut. The rooms feature individual designs and beautiful art pieces....
