Although we expect a more cordial welcome at a 5* hotel, the experience was ok in general. However, be careful to either pay in LL or with small $ bills to avoid ridiculous exchange charges (exchange rate commissions apply on $50 and $100 bills only!)

Had a very pleasant stay. Staff at reception were very helpful and friendly. I arrived on a very early flight and was already given a room (and an upgrade at that) at 6am, which was great. A very good and extensive breakfast buffet. Elegant lobby and restaurant / bars. The design of the common areas is fresh and modern. The...

The hotel is very well maintained, with an amazing location and amazing sea view. The front desk employees were very nice to us and they have upgraded all our rooms (5 rooms). Our rooms overlooked the swimming pool and the sea. The hotel is located 5 minutes walk from the famous Zaitouna bay.

The best hotel in Beirut according to many locals, I really enjoyed my stay here and the location in Central Beirut. A beautiful city with so much rich history. A short walk or drive to the many restaurants at Zaitunay Bay, Gemmayzeh, Uruguay St, or the many restaurants along the Corniche. The hotel has a very nice pool with a...

I stayed over for 3 nights, amazing view, service was as expected. I loved Beirut! Nice buffet as well, hopefully I will be back soon. The spa is ok, nothing crazy about it. The doorman however got us a cab three time more expensive than Uber.
