My note: 9 out of 10 We arrived at 4.30 am but they weren't able to check us in until 9.30 am. They upgraded us to a suite which I believe was a result of them pitying us for almost falling asleep in the lobby for a few hours. Still, it was a nice gesture. Room: The bed, comforter, pillows...

Spent a few nights in this hotel for a wedding, the hotel is quite central yet over priced. Decent food options although this is Lebanon so its better to experience the food outside of the hotel. Newish rooms and staff are accommodating.
