I booked to stay here over the phone, direct with the hotel. We managed to get a very good rate so would recommend checking out what they can offer before using the internet to book. The best part of this hotel was by far and large the reception staff. They were exceptionally helpful and a true asset to the hotel. I travelled with another female and at times, felt a little vulnerable being 2 western women by ourselves as groups of lebanese women always seemed to have at least one male with them. They understood this completly, arranging taxis and even got me cigarettes rather than me walking to the nearby shop. They arranged a driver for us for the day who spoke excellent english and helped us to cram as much as possible in to the 2 days we were there.
The rooms were basic and had a touch of design but felt like it wasn't entirely finished. The beds were extremely comfortable but it did smell a bit of smoke and the surfaces weren't that clean. This could have been because we wanted to check in early so I'm not sure if they had had time to clean the room properly. The only let down was that it was an apartment with a fridge, microwave and kettle but not a single utensil, container or glass. This was an amateur oversight on behalf of the hotel but we didn't spend long in the hotel room anyway.
Make sure you pick up a business card as a lot of taxis had no idea where it was because it was new. We used Costa Coffee in Hamra as our landmark.
The staff are what really sell this hotel. We must have been a right pain requesting hairdryers, adapters, help with the tv but they accommodated everything and were up to the rooms like a shot.
