I stayed several times through the years at Etoile. Small, boutique hotel.
Excellent service, decent breakfast at rooftop bistro, located downtown Beirut. Close to the Solidere developed souk, with restaurants, shops and places to unwind. 15 min walking to Gemayze (part of Ashrafieh) where pubs, clubs and few very good restaurants are located. 15 min by car to (busy) Hamra neighborhood.
The hotel is inside the gate, 2 min walking to the Lebanese Parliament. Safe and easy to walk around. Two mosques and two churches close by. Beautiful to hear the call to morning and evening prayer, and on Sundays, the church bells.
Could use some renovation to go back to the standard it started with.
