Rooms were clean and proper although a bit old and basic in terms of amenities. It was relatively quiet as it's not on a main road yet within...

I booked 6 nights at Bella Riva with Expedia. My travel dates changed after couple of days and I wanted to change the dates. I wasn’t able to change it using Expedia because the hotel banned any changes to any reservations. I was very upset and I wanted to cancel the hotel. According to Expedia I had to pay 97...

The hotel is located 2 minutes walk from the Corniche and about 10 minutes up hill walk to Hamra,the busy shopping,bar,and restaurant area.

The hotel offers large suites for a reasonable price. Staff is helpful and friendly, and cleanliness is generally satisfactory. Central location on the west side of Beirut, with the corniche just down the street. Restaurants and shops are very close by, and room service is good.

But the personnel was very polite. DO NOT include the breakfast, it was terrible and expensive. For breakfast, walk down the street towards the sea,...
