“ONE OF THE BEST PLACES IN LEBANON”
Reviewed February 20, 2014

About 50 min from Beirut, through a very beautiful clean road surrounded by trees, you reach Beit el Dine. Follow the signs and it s very easy to reach it. Before going there, I advise to visit the Palace of Moussa which is a very rich museum of the Lebanese history. Beit el Dine is a very big Palace, about 500 yrs old and house of the Princes that ruled the country that time. The entrance is cheap and try to explore all the rooms and the yard.

“Palaces, harems and Presidential bolt hole”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

A trip from Beirut into the Chouff mountains with a taxi or hotel driver is a must, but you'll be well rewarded at Beit Eddine
With palace rooms and gardens open and displaying mosaics, sculptures and artefacts with outstanding views across the hills and back down valleys of the historic Chouff. Don't miss it.

“Interesting”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

When deciding to go and view a historical place, it is rather difficult. The expectations are high, and disappointment can ruin the trip. On this one I am neutral. The furnishing and workmanship of the original craftsmanship are pretty good. The one thing that ruined it for me was those horrible split AC unit protruding from the walls in one room. Why? at least try a hid the units.

“Ok'ish”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

not a must-see, but you'll enjoy the visit.
It's sad that the walls, instead of restoring it, were painted... Looks clean though but lost a lot of the original antiquity
