If you are planning a visit to northern Lebanon, in the Tripoli area, a stay at the Chateau des Oliviers is a must.
The hotel is a charming villa style boutique home that is tucked away in an olive grove, just five minutes from the bustle of Tripoli.
The decor throughout the hotel is an eclectic mix of worldly furniture and art. The lobby area has a number of sitting rooms, perfect for lounging around to read a book or accessing the excellent wifi connection (a real plus since Internet access in the country is typically spotty at best).
Each room in the hotel has its own unique decor, style and name. I was on the third floor in room 22, Jasmin, and loved the seating area, balcony and modern bathroom.
The staff at the hotel goes above and beyond to tend to your every need... embodying the spirit of Lebanese culture. The staff can even arrange transport from and to the airport or tours of the local area. I had a car during my stay but other guests seemed to take advantage of the taxi service arranged by the staff.
The hotel offers a traditional and delicious Lebanese breakfast. You can pick what time you will have breakfast in the morning, a flexibility I enjoyed so I could sleep in a bit. The hotel offers dinner, for a fee, but I didn't take advantage of this service.
The hotel is managed by a wonderful family who are warm and inviting. They make you feel right at home while you are here and will often sit and spend time with you.
Chateau des Oliviers was a home away from home during my visit and I highly recommend you consider a stay here if you are visiting northern Lebanon.
