It´s clean, nice and in the city centre. I have no other things but good comments. Nice rooms, service, well located.

The treatment is very normal and charm. They have wifi and breakfast is quite correct. Easy to go from there to any place or pick up a taxi/driver.

I stayed 5 nights. My room even had a desk and a table to sit and stay reading or watching TV comfortably

Room Tip: I dont understand the question done here. Anyone should choose what they want tpo choose. The Awal H...

This was our first time in Tripoli on a business trip and I have to say that the great influence on our overall impression, which was very positive, was our staying in Awal Hotel. It is new, very clean, modern little hotel situated not far a way from the main points in Tripoli. Rooms clean with good room service, stuff great, breakfast even better. Worth every penny. As far as I am concerned this is my address while being in Tripoli.

Recently stayed five nights at this charming hotel. Highly welcoming and friendly staff,couldn't have been more helpful, friendly and inviting. Comfortable and very clean rooms and a lovely breakfast with a waste choice (omlettes prepared at the moment with desired stuffing). All this contributed to improve my first experience in Libya. Recommended almost for business.

Small but comfortable hotel in central Tripoli, right across from the Tripoli Exhibition Centre on Omar Mokhtar Road. Clean and smart rooms with good airconditioning and international TV stations. Friendly, attentive and English speaking staff. Free wifi and quite good internet connectivity for Libya. Functional and well stocked mini bar (the only thing missing was Kinnie - hint, hint). Breakfast is basic but is included in the price. Convenient location with mini-market right next door, and bank right across the street (handy for exchanging your $ for LYD) with a good Italian restaurant next to the bank. The Tripoli seafront and Freedom Square (formerly known as the Green Square) are just a brisk 5 minute walk from the hotel and down Omar Mohktar street. In short, a good and very reasonably priced business hotel in downtown Tripoli. Highly recommended - Stephen Sultana, Malta.

I stayed at the Awal twice on business trips. The second time, I stayed for 2 weeks.
Clean rooms and free wifi internet would make me come back at any time.
The boys at the front office are just amazing. Very helpful. And they create an atmosphere of "home away from home". I have now found an apartment in Tripoli, but I come back to visit my new friends every now and then.Thanks guys!

I stayed in the Awal on a business trip.I used to live in Tripoli so am aware of the difficulties that operators and visitors suffer. The hotel was clean, staff friendly and breakfast average for Libya. No real complaints except for the mattress which for me was like sleeping on a stone floor. So hard, I did not know it was possible to manufacture such a hard mattress!
However that's a personal thing, others may love it .

Thanks for your feedback Andrew. Please note that we have two types of mattresses available - hard and soft. You can specify which type you would like upon check-in (or upon reservation). As you said this is a personal preference, some guest prefer one type, and others prefer the other.

We hope to welcome you again in the future.
