While this hotel does look a bit shabby from the outside, it's actually quite nice. The rooms are pretty good with a fridge, TV and air conditioning. The carpets aren't too clean, but it's not like you're sleeping on the floor. This isn't a hotel that will impress the avid traveler.
This hotel is great if you're on a budget and just need a comfortable bed and a place where you can keep your luggage while you're out on the town (which is usually the case when you're in Beirut)
