“great choice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2012

If you want a hotel with fantastic views of the Mediterranean, has all the amenties, and freindly service this is the hotel for you. This hotel is a walk away from the old city and is situated on the beach, you don't need a car. If you do need to drive somewhere the hotel staff will arrange everything for you along with what you should pay in advance. The breakfast that is included is excellent. This hotel is dog freindly so if you travel with your pet thay will accomodate. This hotel is a definite plus for any traveler.

Room Tip: on with balcony facing the water

I cannot say enough about this hotel. The location is just enough off the beaten path (about 3 blocks from the old city), but right on the Mediterranean. Upon entering the lobby, one has a direct view of the sea. There are seating patios on both first and ground level where you can relax, eat or have drinks. The indoor seating is graced with genuine Roman mosaics, which the super friendly owner collects (among other artifacts from the ancient history of Byblos). The staff are as helpful as can be--very professional, very attentive. The rooms are spotless. The hot water works. The air conditioner works. There is a beach you can walk down a long stairway to. You can rent beach chairs and recliners, buy soda and other refreshements, or just use the beach towels provided for free by the hotel.

Room Tip: Like everywhere in Lebanon, negotiating is the key. If the staff do not show you a room you care for...

Friendly staff (especially Mustafa), nice rooms, easy access to the beach, copious breakfast, short distance from the town centre.

we paid $110 for a triple- the building is nothing special but the staff was super friendly and helpful, especially since we had a 3-year old with us who got lots of attention and love.

Having a room with a sea view and balcony was great, and breakfast downstairs was good quality. Location is good, a 2min walk from the old town and a steep stairway away from the beach (even if the beach was rather dirty).

I would not hesitate to recommend this place- a great option in Byblos.

We stayed in this hotel for 2 days and it was a fabulous stay. The hotel's location is perfect both in terms of the sea and the town. The staff were friendly and helpful. The internet was functioning well. We had a room that was facing the sea-just amazing.
We were staying in low season, so we were the only guests and the breakfast was not adequate and proper. But I guess, that was just because of the lack of the tourists.

Good old tripadvisor. There I was in a wifi'd coffee shop in Beirut hurrying to find a hotel in Byblos. Ahiram had great reviews and as usual they were spot on. It is charming; the views are splendid; the staff are helpful; and there is a great terrace from which to watch the sun set over the Med. the breakfast is a little scratchy but this is a minor irritation in what is essentially a good value hotel in a pretty place. Apparently the going rate is 110 USD but when I phoned from the cafe, I was quoted 77USD.....and to honest, that's about what you should pay. Good work TAers. You came through again.

I'm giving this little resort a 4 just because the rooms could use some renovating. But it's clean. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Very well located next to the center of beautiful Byblos. The beach is a pebble beach and is not so attractive but in Byblos (people usually go to the nearby Eddeh Sands resort when visiting Byblos)

Price vs Quality is good.
