An outstanding hotel. I chose it because it was within our budget and, at No. 7, was highest on the list of hotels offering best value that we could afford. It was like a boutique hotel, with all rooms of decent size. Ours had a small kitchenette, dining area with table and 3 chairs, settee and one easy chair, desk and chair. Nice bed, nice lighting, decor good, en suite attractive. Even my 'picky' husband agreed that he liked this hotel and we returned a week later on our way back from a business trip - together with friends of ours, a family of 4.
The breakfast buffet was extensive and courteously staffed, particularly by Basma who was always so attentive, professional and had a very kindly attitude.
The ground floor reception area included a snug bar area with plenty of comfortable seating and quiet private corners, and there were 3 different seating/meeting areas in the lobby and a business centre for guests. There is free Wi-Fi to all of the ground floor area and dining area and which extends to some of the bedrooms on various floors when lucky. Otherwise it can be paid for in the bedrooms.
A very neat, clean hotel which is very central, very close to both the famous Bay Rock in the sea and the Corniche and also within easy walking distance of Hamra, the main shopping street.
However, possibly the best feature of this hotel was its staff. All so motivated and worked as a team to be discreet, helpful and totally professional. Nothing was too much trouble, everything was provided - the housekeeping team was so willing to please, the porters always on hand, 24 hours, the Front Desk very efficient and helpful. It just seemed to be a smaller, modern hotel that was doing everything right! Plus they had ample parking, attended most of the time.
Would definitely go back and definitely recommend this hotel as a perfect place to stay if you don't want to pay megabucks for the top flight Beirut hotels but want a good, classy hotel.
