This hotel is in the Al-Hamra district, which has average shopping but not the best by any means in Beirut. I would actually recommend staying more on the Corniche rather than an Al-Hamra. At any rate, hotel is nice and clean. The free breakfast buffet is wonderful and is almost worth the stay. The problem is that the double beds in the rooms are twin size at best. Also, there is no free WiFi anywhere in the hotel. You even have to buy a 24 hour pass even if you want to just look up one website in the lobby. Also, the staff is difficult to deal with. They will not exchange specific currency, coins, etc. They will recommend taxi services which are overpriced. The worst part is the hotel has a "security" guy who goes around and tells you how to sit. This is no joke. They expect you to sit a certain way in the lobby or they approach you. I saw this on numerous occasions. It was quite rude and I've never seen anything like it. Also, when you check out, they wait until they send someone to your room to examine it. Poor, poor customer service. Rude and not helpful. Would not stay here again.
