Local Taxi Fare - Airport to Raouche Rotana hotel

Has anyone taken a local taxi from the airport to this hotel?

Can anyone advise what the average taxi fare would be for this journey as i'm trying to figure out the most cost effective way to arrive at the hotel from the airport by either hotel transfer or taxi.

Are taxi's freely available from the airport?

Many thanks in advance for your advice & suggestions.

Taxis are he only mode of transportation between the airport and any part of Lebanon, they are freely available from the airport and would cost you around 40 USD to Raouche district.

40USD seems a bit high!

But if you're ok with 'shopping around' or haggling, you will be able to find taxis that will take you there for $20-$30.

I have just booked a taxi from the airport to Byblos and was quoted $35.

I used a taxi company recommended here on tripadvisor.

Thanks to you both for your advice.

In the end I opted for the hotel taxi based on your prices, they charged $30 so it was at the higher end, but saved me having to haggle with a taxi driver after the flight.
