Coming to Lebanon is a real experience especially if you are not intentioned to limit your staying in the capital.
But Lebanon is Beirut and Beirut is Phoenicia.
We came here by car and the security procedures were impressive but worth .. car completely open, lower car body check for explosive device .. but friendly and reassuring faces. Here we go. A long escalator leads to upper floor. Highly professional team for check in and assistance in trip planning. The room is small but beautiful and perfectly clean. Just on the side the view of a skyscraper with the holes of past bombings. At short distance the dark pink villa of Mr. Jumblatt that is worth a wonderful picture. Just outside the hotel the starting point of the Corniche and the lights of Beirut skyline.
Breakfast is rich and full of Lebanese flavours. The breakfast area is just on the side of the famous Phoenicia pool.
In room service is worth a test ... anytime.
