I agree with the "Swedish Traveler"'s Review.

This place is just getting started. There's almost a feeling that they thought "Let's build a hotel!" and then bought books about building them and running them half way through the project (take that lift for example!). And some finishing needs to be improved.

But its perfectly serviceable, in as good a location as any and much better than anything else in town. There are signs that the owners are generous and enthusiastic: little problems are addressed quickly and without rancor.

Good rooms. Great little supermarket opposite. Skip the restaurant.

This is a spanking new hotel. When we stayed here they were still building the second elevator. We got a bigger room high up because of a misunderstanding, no extra charge. Comfortable but you could hear the elevator every time somebody used it, and everytime someone walked in the corridor outside it was really noisy.
but these are small things, the room was comfortable and clean.
It is a little bit of a walk down to old Byblos and the harbour. Not a big deal except that you have to pass a really busy roundabout over the highway.

My boyfriend and I were seeking a romantic getaway free from the hustle and bustle of Beirut. As I'm originally from Miami, I wanted to see what is considered one of the oldest inhabited cities in the world..

A big part of the reason we decided to go, was that Hotel Canari de Byblos came highly recommended..and we were pleased to find out that the hotel not only stood up to, but surpassed all expectations.

Not only were we greeted by the friendly staff upon our arrival, but ended up sitting down for coffee with the proprietors of the hotel! A lovely couple who decided to follow their dreams and open up a hotel in the heart of Byblos, quit a massive undertaking indeed.

The hotel itself is brand new, impeccably clean, and surprisingly spacious! I have attached a photo of the hotel,,we stayed on the top floor in one of the suites, which boasted one of the biggest balconies I’ve ever seen. There is nothing quite like looking at the sun disappear into the Mediterranean Sea..and from our balcony, we had a perfect view.. ahhhhhh! Life is good.

Hotel Canari de Byblos sits in close proximity to everything the town has to offer: the tourist center, the Phoenician Castle of Byblos, The Old city, The Old Souk, the beach as well as spectacular views of the Mediterranean Sea.

I highly recommend choosing Hotel Canari de Byblos when planning your next trip to Byblos, Beirut, Tripoli..or anywhere in Lebanon for that matter..It truly is a most charming escape..and excellent value for the money!

I also attached some other photos of The Old Souk and The Old Port..if you would like to read more about our trip to Byblos, please, check out my blog!

We decided to stay in Byblos instead of Beirut as so many of the hotels in Beirut are overpriced and, within our budget, pretty shabby. We stumbled upon this hotel by chance about a week after it had opened and thought we would check it out. The staff were very helpful, eager to make a mark and made our stay very pleasant.

The decor is Lebanese but with a European edge - not as bling as a lot of other competing hotels.

The only potential downside is the location which is of the other side of the main road from the old town. It is convenient for getting back and forth to Beirut though - you avoid getting stuck in the traffic through Byblos proper.

We walked to the old town most nights from there, though to be honest we could have taken a taxi. It was quite fun to walk, but you take your life into your own hands doing so.

Overall, we loved staying there. Byblos is a magical place to stay, with a great nightlife outdoors (which means you don't end up stinking of cigarette like in the bars and restaurants in Beirut). I highly recommend checking this place out.
