Hello. I am planning a trip to visit Tripoli in May (visa permitting), after being away some 30+ years. There used to be a hotel in Giorgimpopoli down the street from Guys & Joys. Anthony Quinn stayed there while filming the movie Lion of the Desert 1975 or 76 (a bunch of us kids got his autograph). I knew it as the Beach Hotel but maybe it had a Libyan Arab name. Does anybody know of it or if its still there. Does anyone know of an alternative inexpensive, friendly, hospitable hotel accommodation in or near Giorgimpopoli?
I would like to stay somewhere in the area as I used to live & go to OCS back in the 70s. I actually lived straight south about 2km from what was then the Underwater Club. I lived a block north of Gurgi Rd.
Thanks for your replies.
