Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Loud music from outside until 12:37 am and then noise from furniture being moved about indoors until 3:00 am. I believe there may have been a wedding. I did not sleep at all that night. My earplugs did not help much. Friendly hotel staff. TV, fridge. Clean sheets and room. Hard uncomfortable mattress. Hot shower. Dirty bathroom floor with stained marble…needs updating. Weak wifi that turned off frequently and had to be reconnected. Balcony. Breakfast fair: Omelet, coffee, cucumber, tomatoes, 2 types of cheese, sweet sauce, pita bread, slices sweet bread, sliced processed meat.

Despite the lovely location of the hotel, and its extraordinary history in hosting celebrities we had a very unpleasant experience starting from the very bad smell coming of the WC in the suite 108, then from the receptionists who asked us to leave the room the next day at precisely 12:00 while we asked for a late check out to have the chance to stay for the lunch buffet. She told us over the phone that there are no such thing at the hotel and the person who made the booking is near her and has never told us such thing. When we went down to the reception they told us that they thought it was a late check in... this is a shameful answer for such establishment and for the price we paid for the suite!

We did not really expect much but the location was surprisingly great. Very close to Taanayel lake, to Zahle and other locations in Bekaa. The hotel is nice, the employees are very helpful, the room was spacious, and we were welcomed with a plate of fruits, the breakfast is delicious. The hotel has a small river passing through it which makes it also beautiful.

It was a great stay, the rooms are tidy, you can enjoy a calm night. Nevertheless during breakfast apparently a manager of the restuarant whom they call 'maitre' was punishing an employee by deducting money and he was reprimanding him, it was very disturbing and needless to say annoying in front of customers.

Charming property, well maintained. We were about 10 rooms and attended a wedding in the Bekaa and decided to spend the night and avoid the drive back in the evening. It was the right choice, we had a great dinner in the hotel and the breakfast the following morning was fantastic. The service team was extremely helpful and friendly, they looked after us very well.

Stayed there for a night with my wife and son and was pleasantly surprised with the charm this hotel provides. It has a nice character to it reminiscent of the older days of Lebanon. The rooms are spotless and very spacious which for a couple with a baby is a massive advantage. We also loved the setting at the restaurant around the small stream and under the shade of the trees. If your looking for a relaxing getaway away from the hustle of the city we recommend this place for a chilled weekend.
