Shahin Tower Hotel
Ranked #3 of 6 Hotels in Tartus
Reviewed 2 June 2009

Clean sheets, bathroom & room.... probably the most you can expect from any Hotel in Tartous - which Shahin Tower delivers.

The hotel has a North Korean / 1970's feel to it, yet they do have free wireless internet in the lobby.

Staff were limited in their English speaking ability, but I do give them credit for trying their best to communicate. Ordering a tea was a interesting experience. Also it seems as if they have hired someone to solely mop the marble floor in the lobby 24 hours a day. No matter what time I was there, the same man was always cleaning it (which incidently was immaculate)

A decent stay.


Money exchange rate offered in the hotel was very good

The tallest building in Tartous and close to the old town it has a good location overlooking the promenade. The restaurant is on the top floor and has a stunning view.

The hotel is rather dated and although the rooms are quiet a good size they are more basic. I would have thought that it will need to be upgraded or will suffer when the new 5* hotel a block away is built. However, it serves the purpose and has wifi. The shower was excellent and very powerful - only problem is that the shower curtain was flimsy and stuck to you.

Breakfast is not elaborate but passable.

The view over the Mediterranean from the rooms and the restaurant is lovely. The staff are friendly. Although the hotel is reasonably modern it does have a very 1970's feel to it. The rooms have large balconies, but they are bland and need some more attention to detail. The mug in the bathroom dissapeared on the first day and was never seen again. Beds are very comfortable, which is a big plus. This is about the best you can get in Tartus.

The location is also ideal. The road in front of the sea is lined with plenty of restaurants and cafes. There is an internet cafe on the street just behind the hotel that is very cheap. Plus plenty of shops close by as well.

A large, modern hotel right on the seafront with dramatic views of the sea. The rooms are a bit rundown (often so in Syria) and have a neutral decor, but they are large, quite clean, and the bathroom was impeccable. Staff were friendly and the food in the restaurant was good too.
