Reviewed 10 May 2014

Recently stayed 10 nights in this hotel. I really enjoyed the atmosphere in this hotel. I felt that I was highly respected as a solo woman- traveler. The staff was always very polite/good manners towards me. Always helpful. Above all, a great sense of humor, especially at the reception.

Well a bit older Portier always made my day.

I felt that I wasn't just "someone" but it was nice to be also called by name.

It was easy taxis to find.
I traveled a lot during my stay/busy in Lebanon therefore it was really relaxing to rest in the evenings/nights in this hotel for the next day. A good quality mattress and also nice color- bedroom.

I found all I liked from the breakfast buffet tables.

I would find this hotel as a trustworthy hotel, with a reasonable prize.

Thank you all.

i chose this hotel for a 2 week work trip and was looking for somewhere comfortable and reasonably central. it is 10 minutes walk from hamra street and 2 minutes from the corniche.
the hotel is medium size and is in my view excellent. the staff are very helpful and professional. the hotel is clean and well serviced, the room gave a good space and was nicely furnished, bed comfortable, a/c was quiet and worked well on the couple of occasions i used it, bathroom clean. there is a good choice at breakfast. if you need a kettle/cups/plates in the room, they will provide it. you can choose smoking or non smoking rooms. cannot fault the hotel or the staff.

Modern, clean, comfortable hotel with partial sea views.
Located in Rouche/Manara just steps to promenade and sea and a 15 minute walk to Hamra district for great shopping, restaurants, cafes, and some great little bars off of main street at night.
Reception staff were great. Always helpful. We had a Junior suite which was larger than regular room with a sitting area.
Good value for money considering the area. Other hotels here much more expensive.
I highly recommend.

Only thing I wasn't happy with was the breakfast which was of poor quality.

It was my first time to visit Beirut, my friend who working as a tour operator in a travel agency there recommended this hotel to stay because of the good location and the price comparing with other hotels in the city and really it was such a perfect choice, I liked my stay there so much, I had a suit and it was so comfortable, spacious, clean with stunning sea view, the atmosphere really was lovely, I liked my little breakfast in the morning with my favorite music of fayroz everyday in the restaurant, the service was so good and the staff at the hotel were very professional and polite especially the receptionists, I highly recommend this lovely and cozy hotel to any traveler wish to visit Beirut one day.

This was my first trip to Beirut and one of many for my husband. We stayed in a suite and it was perfect. The suite allowed us to relax without having to sit on the bed. The view was great from the bedroom. It overlooked the sea. The location was perfect with walking distance to Hamra and AUB. The staff was friendly and always said hello as you entered.

Room Tip: This place includes fre WI FI and breakfast.
