I stayed in the American Colony hotel for 6 night. On arrival the staff were friendly and welcomed me with a glass of champagne. All through my stay the staff in general were very helpful and nice. Especially at the front desk where they arranged a tour for me and sorted out other things.
I found the hotel a little impersonal and also quite expensive. The food was so so. And although very efficent and helpful the staff left me cold.
I was told that breakfast was served until 10.30. On my first day I arrived in the dining room at about 10.25 and was told by the waiter that I had 5 mintues and then I had to finish breakfast. this made me very uncomfortable ... it's not a nice way to treat a guest who is on their own on their first day in a forgien country. Oh and without any apology the pool was shut the entire time I was there.
Also the hotel has its own fleet of taxis outside the door. The drivers invaribly refused to turn on their metres and my suspicion that I was being fleeced was confirmed when the taxi back to the airport was nearly double my taxi from the airport.
Overall for its history, its courtyard and its ability to be a haven of peace in a crazy city.
