“you will (almost) forget where you are”
Reviewed 1 June 2013

First of all, It is nice to remember that this Hotel is based in Tripoli (Libya). This is important to remember, especially for food and beverage. From breakfast to evening dinner I had good or very good experiences, even when the hotel was fully booked. Access to every type of food, very good service, etc ! The head of food and beverage department is therefore on top of his job ! Congratulations for that. This hotel keeps international standards at that level.

I was less impressed by the room quality. After 5 days , no one had taken the initiative to empty the garbage bin in my bathroom, or in the room. I had to ask for it, which is somehow sad for a business class hotel. On a positive note, after asking the person in charge, more attention was given to the room. There was also a bad smell coming from the bathtub and some water was leaking from the ceiling. I informed the reception and received support for that. But well, once again, for a business class hotel it is somehow disapointing.


The staff is a mix of nationals and internationals and overall the service is good or very good. There is the occasional mistake with the order, but you'll find that everywhere.

There is a security portal at the entrance but the people in charge are barely looking at the screens when you scan your bags. So it is kind of an illusion of security at that portal level. That being said it seems that this hotel is very secure compare to others.

There is a swimming pool, a real gym and a SPA. The hotel is one of these places, when you can work the all day and (really) relax on the evening with a coffee and a a delicious piece of cake enjoying the local breeze.


So it is a good business class hotel, but it comes with a price.

Tips

- There is an AVIS office near the reception and they organize airport transfert.
- Check out can take some time .. so, when leaving - ask to check out - go to breakfast - and come back (after breakfast) to the reception and most likely the paper will be ready.

This is a good 4 to 4+ hotel .... It is the best in Libya now adays and the location and service are very good. The rooms are spacious. Internet connection was terrible and you have to always switch on and off all time

If you're coming to Tripoli at the moment, you should be realistic, and set your expectations accordingly. The accommodations are comfortable, the rooms and bathrooms are clean, the wifi is free and works, and service is not inspired, but it's OK. The fitness room is large, has all the cardio and weights you'll need. The outdoor pool is large. A perfectly satisfactory hotel for the business or NGO traveler.

Good location for our stay while in Tripoli. Very expensive. Rooms are ok, wireless internet connection could be better, breakfasts are good. Front of house staff and buffet restaurant staff are rather surly and unhelpful.

At the moment, unfortunately, hotel comfort is not top of the list of priorities when arranging a visit to Tripoli. However, having somewhere comfortable where you can be well fed is quite important once you've fought your way through the traffic from the airport.
This Radisson Blu was all round a decent experience. Pleasent welcome, efficient Bell Service, very comfortable room, geberally welcoming staff. The desk - you guessed it - was too small to support much work and had a glass insert.....I think hotel designers have got together and agreed that the surface of every desk must be glass and therefore no use to an optical mouse!
Could not really complain about the room. Decent view, sufficient storage space (just enough hangers), decent bathroom, almost enough space on the stand to lay out my suitcase(!) and tea / coffee making facilities.
Restaurants were all ok to good except for the buffett which appeared to have a great selection of breakfast and dinner but was actually lacking in a choice of high quality foods - which you might expect at the prices paid. The choice was OK, the food was OK but there was nothing memorable morning or evening! I got the impression the restuarant was understaffed in the morning?
The italian restaurant on the ground floor provided good or very good quality meals. Decent atmosphere and acceptable service....again waiters seemed quite stretched!
Gym was OK.
Internet was widely available and OK for normal mails but completely choked if it saw attachments greater than a couple of MBs.
Would stay here again and probably will.

Room Tip: Not directly onto the road?

The hotel is in line with the international requirements as the member of Radisson network but it's far-far away from the best 5 star hotels in Europe or in the USA.
The rooms, the restaurant, the facilities are O.K. in general but you will miss the real quality.
On the other hand the Tripoli "quality" hotel market is very small, and the local hotels are really so-so..., so you will pay the "heroin" price for the room at the and of the day...
By the way Tripoli is very dirty, hot and sandy but unfortunately you can forget your beer after the work because alcohols are forbidden everywhere even in the Radisson bar...

Room Tip: See view means ship factory view, do not pay extra for this...
