We booked two rooms for three nights earlier this month. We bailed out after the first night. The location is horrible! You have to navigate major highways to get across before you get anywhere near the old town. It is not close at all.
The rooms are big, but there are no drawers, just a closet, and a long long table running the length of the room. Sure, there is a sea view in the distance, but you look out over one of the roads.
No tourist information at all,. and nothing in the rooms. I asked for a map, or information and the reception did not have anything, only a large book put out by the Tourism Ministry on all of Lebanon.
Breakfast was abominable and not fresh. The wi-fi rates were exhorbitant,
We navigated our way to the old town and went into the touristic information centre and the very helpful woman there rang Hotel Ahiram and arranged for us to go and look at rooms there. It was a very good move.
