“sighty and comfy”
Reviewed April 8, 2012

It is a 5star hotel! and in our happy emotions it was just 10. close to all sightseeing places, jacuzzi in the suite, French music in the cafe, mind blowing sea panorama and homelike service. everything you wish for in a hotel. the best birthday present trip from my b/f. absolutely recommended. we loved it.

Room Tip: Rooms with sea view are marvellous

I've been to six hotels in the general region, always on short business trips, and it's very unusual I'd ever review anything, but having seen something very negative about this place, I wanted to tell you my experience. I'm only a typical middle manager out on the road, so I am pretty immune to hotels of all sorts... but I do find this place very welcoming and relaxing.

What's not to be happy about? It's new, spacious, unusually stylish and with a cool cafe and quality food. It's local to everything and you get great sea views and unusually good quality soap etc. The staff I met were on the ball, and it has some character.

Room Tip: Bigger roomos have jacuzzis

I stayed here in February. It was a combination business/pleasure visit and from the moment I contacted the hotel to book, I found the staff willing to go the extra mile. They were very accommodating and although I had to move from the room I was initially assigned (due to a fault that resulted from heavy rains), the staff were exception in their assistance. As others have indicated, this not a five-star hotel, however the room was spacious and clean. The hotel is directly on the water and the view was spectacular!! The restaurant was mediocre as was the gym, but for my purposes this was a good place to stay. I would stay again and I recommend it.

the location is good as its 4min walk from the telefrique up to Harissa and its a max 10min walk from all the night clubs and lebanese dance floors in ma'amltain road where its famous for its nighlife (and sex life). You can actully walk for 15mins to the Plateau concert hall.

The hotel itself has a nice sea view but the rooms are not well furnished or deocrated while the breakfast was just average but with one or two home made fresh jams. The rooms are clean and the staff are nice and helpful we did not use the hotel taxi service as you can get a better deal if you negotiate with one of the local taxi drivers and hire him for the hole day to go for all the nearby attractions.

Room Tip: get a room on the highest floor facing the sea view. the view is just amazing!

the hotel is well located in Jounieh very close to the teleferique.
large rooms with great views overlooking the beach. i was hesistant when i read some reviews here saying that the rooms are not clean, but to be honest the hotel is clean and the rooms are very decent.
food in the hotel is bad, however lots of nice restaurants around.
good service and friendly staff.
the hotel is not cheap. but the price is fine if compared to hotels in lebanon
i highly recommend that you use the taxi service provided by the hotel if you wana avoid getting ripped off. their taxi service is excellent and very good price

Room Tip: sea view rooms are nice
