“If you are into average - this is the place for you.”
Reviewed June 17, 2010

Got great reviews form the "locals" family members who live and work in Lebanon. We heard that the place had a very prestigious past and that it still lives up to its reputation. The hotel looked okay as we entered from a very busy road. My thought was that the inside could be promising. A friendly gentleman greeted us outside and unloaded our bags and offered to park our car. He had no uniform, so initially, we were a little reluctant to turn our stuff over to him. When we got inside the hotel, it looked okay. Not great, but like from a old ready to be updated Marriott our hotel in Nebraska or something. At this point, there was still hope that this hotel could still meet my standards. By standards, I am refereeing to at least my basic business hotels like, Marriott, Double Tree, Hilton and The Westin. We were then taken by the bell man to the room. Upon walking in, it is a very dark room, with the look of a Red Roof Inn or something. It is still the old boob tune tv, a low bed, and the room just did not look that appealing. We asked for extra towels and they said they did not have any available. They still did not have the capacity to take toilet paper in the toilet which grosses me out.
The room for $120 also came with a breakfast. Although they try, it is a traditional Lebanese breakfast with no other options which is bread, cheese and tomatoes and cucumbers.

The hotel grounds also included a semi run down sanctuary / zoo with a brook that ran through the middle. It was okay, but not what I expected.
