Rooms were a good size. Problem started at check-in, they didn't have my file. Luckily I printed it out and then they found it. Fan in the room kept turning off and called to fix but no one ever came after 2 calls. Upon checkout they charged my card and then after I got home found out they re charged me with no explanation. Please don't stay

The check in wasn’t the best experience as they didn’t have the room that we booked available and had to give us another one. Also, some of the front desk staff weren’t the nicest. Sometimes, nobody was even present at the front desk and the hotel is in a busy street, so anybody could just walk in.

Great location Good clean rooms Expensive compared to the time of year and Beirut current circumstances, and the fact of USD shortage (70 USD per night) Very close to noisy pubs though. Get a room higher than the 4th floor They require check-out before 1:00 PM, which is not customer friendly for an establishment that is clearly at 20% occupancy or less
