It's not about luxury and fancy hotel lobbies. Neither about super modern shower rooms or hi-tech appliances. This hotel is a mini-compound of what it used to be a part of an old Lebanese neighborhood. It's basically a half block, Lebanese standards, turned into this motel with nice decorations and vintage cafeterias. You will get to experience living in a Middle-eastern setting from the 1st half of the 20th century, which will also reminds you of Mediterranean motels.
A significant aspect of this motel is the social aspect of it. Many tourists love to mingle over there and some westerners come specifically to participate in Arabic classes. Beirut, and the north eastern part of the Middle-east in general, is the best place to practice your Arabic at.
