I had an overnight trip to Beirut and stayed here. A number of my colleagues regularly stay here and prefer it to the Phoenicia. The hotel is really small boutique. The service is excellent and the staff upto the usual standards one would be expect. The hotel has an old world, European feel to it. The rooms are well done, clean and have all the facilities. They are on the smaller side compared to the usual in the region. The staff is friendly. Like a number of other intercon properties, the staff likes to share their local knowledge of the city. The young man at the reception was really helpful and provided me with options for other places to go in the city. I could not use thos suggestions since I had meetings most of the following day.
The hotel has only one restaurant +bar, the bar area is useless but the bar snacks are really tasty. The restaurant area was full even on a Monday evening and my lebanese colleagues spoke highly of it. There is no gym but they have arrangement with the nearby Phoenicia and a bus service to take you there. I did not try it, since it was really cold and I don't need too much to dissuade me from skipping gym anyways.
All in all, good competent hotel but there are no facilities or restaurant outlets.
