“Beautiful boutique hotel (review of the rooftop terrace restaurant)”
Reviewed June 28, 2012

I had dinner on the rooftop terrace of the Albergo hotel on Tuesday night with a few friends and it was the perfect send off for a friend leaving Beirut after having spent a year there. Lovely atmosphere, stunning interiors - you end up wishing you could take half the decor home with you as it's so beautiful, gorgeous damascene lamps etc. Although we sat on the terrace sitting inside is recommended too because it's so pretty. The service was excellent and very friendly - very cool 'light-up' menus. Half of us went for pasta and half of us went for the 'chicken aromatic curry' dish. I would recommend the pasta over the chicken. They brought us delicious chocolate at the end of our meal too - definite plus points :)

In a 1930s building, Hotel Albergo has a natural charm that you won't find in the more modern hotels of Beirut. The rooms are spacious and the staff are very helpful. Evidently it's on the higher end of the market but I believe can justify the prices it charges. The rooftop terrace is charming, a calm spot away from the hum of the city; just visit it to sample the pink lemonade and evesdrop on the jetset of Beirut who mix French, English and Arabic in one phrase. Perhaps to be visited before the hotel adds an extension - which is just a gaping hole behind the hotel for now.

Room Tip: I'd go for a street side room as the back rooms look over several building sites.

We loved Beirut. There are bigger and brighter hotels to stay in but we enjoyed walking around Beirut and loved this small hotel. The room was a good size and the food in the hotel was excellent. The front desk staff were excellent and helped us arrange some tours and recommended some excellent restaurants - we ate Armenian food for the first time in our lives - it is delicious.
If you are looking for something charming - I'd recommend this place.

I stayed one romantic night in the Albergo in Beirut, which is located in the heart of the city in Sodeco. Honestly, i had heard so many good things about it, and still managed to get pleasantly surprised by the boutique hotel feeling with the meticulous decorations across the whole hotel (we walked around and asked the bell boy to give us a tour) and the historic artifacts where also quite interesting. The service was also very pleasant and the guys were very kind and helpful. The room was perfect in terms of bed, sofa, decoration to die for, but the best part was the bathroom with old style marble and wood. The courtesy fruit basket was replaced by a soft yumi cake and some exotic fruits with traditional charab al tut (raspberry juice) and dried fruits and nuts. In the morning we even ordered all of the breakfast (american, french and lebanese if i remember well) and they were all quite good! Jams, pancakes, labneh, zaatar, and croissant, and eggs and bacon and fruits and juices and breads of all kind were all delicious. I would definitely go again to escape the city :)

The staff can't do enough for you and make you feel very welcome. As it was my second visit, they upgraded me to a suite for no extra cost and it was bigger than my flat in London! The food in the restaurant is very good and breakfast was lovely too. Best scrambled eggs I've ever had.

The staff organised cars for me and charged them to the room as I'd heard horror stories of trying to get cabs (especially as I don't speak Arabic). They also recommended some day trips for me as I had some free time.

I'll definitely be going back; really lovely hotel and city.

We had booked two rooms and they are very personal and different. The staff and management was very friendly and helpful in all respects. The room service came within 5 minutes of ordering!

We had dinner and drinks in the restaurant on the top floor, and enjoyed all the dished, in particular the crab salad. Thank you for our stay.
