The hotel is located 2 minutes walk from the Corniche and about 10 minutes up hill walk to Hamra,the busy shopping,bar,and restaurant area. Unfortunately the walk on uneven pavements past empty buildings back to the hotel at night is through very poor lit streets which creates an uneasy feeling as voices can be heard in the darkness but nobody visible....

The hotel offers large suites for a reasonable price. Staff is helpful and friendly, and cleanliness is generally satisfactory. Central location on the west side of Beirut, with the corniche just down the street. Restaurants and shops are very close by, and room service is good. For a large family, this is among the better deals you could do in... More

The room was comfortable and quiet, but the hallways reeked of cigarette smoke. We noticed (too late) that they have a non-smoking level, so ask for it. The shower and sink water was always rusty. But the personnel was very polite. DO NOT include the breakfast, it was terrible and expensive. For breakfast, walk down the street towards the sea,... More
