I recently stayed in this hotel for a short family stay in Beirut. I found the hotel to be top class in facilities and location. The staff are very efficient and friendly with all of them well able to speak English. I only had breakfast and dined in town but it was very comprehensive and extensive in choice and taste. I enjoyed a long walk along the promenade/cor-niche. I would recommend this hotel as an ideal place from which to tour Lebanon or do business in Beirut.
