“Considering limited choice of decent hotels in Tripoli it is probably the best hotel for business travellers.”
Reviewed 3 February 2010

I've stayed in this hotel a number of times and can compare it with several other hotels in Tripoli. It is not a very typical hotel as it was originally built some 80 years ago, used to very popular, and in the 1950s it hosted a very big casino. However after the Libyan revolution it was rather neglected until early 2009 when it was reopened after significant reconstruction.
The hotel has a rather tricky layout with various passages, atriums, etc. All rooms are very different is size and shape, so it is a kind of a lottery when you check in - you can get a big airy room with a balcony, or at the same price a small room tucked in some remote corner of the hotel. All rooms have free WiFi, or you can borrow a cable for a better speed to connect you laptop. The are good restaurants in the hotel and decent room service from the restaurants. However if you need other service (e.g. if you ask for an ironing board or need something get fixed in your room) prepare to wait and repeat your request several times.
In the hotel there is also a small but nice fitness centre and a good outdoor swimming pool.
It is not a cheap hotel, but for Tripoli it is one of the best, all things considered.
