Al Fanar is situated in a charming tiny street of the old Christian quarter of the city, a few steps away from the fishermen’s seaport. The hotel is just by the sea and has a small private beach with a restaurant and a bar just over the water. The problem is that the rooms (90 USD and more) are dark, badly appointed and somehow run down. Sleeping there is a very uncomfortable experience as the sheets are made of a very cheap synthetic fabric that horribly heats the body, a problem the A.C. won’t solve. But this is not the worse. The worse is cockroaches. We met the first one in the tiny archaic bathroom while trying to have a shower. During the night, I went back to the bathroom and watched more than three cockroaches partying on the floor. That was disgusting. I went down to the lobby. Nobody was there, but I grabbed an insect repellent waiting for me on the reception desk (apparently they are used to it). The times we spent were such a nightmare that we thought about driving back to Beirut in the middle of the night. When we checked out on the morning, we complained to the manager who didn’t answer anything and looked to us like a dummy. No apologies, nothing. A few days later, we encountered the story to friends who told us: But you were lucky! Usually they have parties on the beach and they turn the music on the whole place till 5AM! So if we can give an advice: Avoid this place!
