This is a budget hotel offering basic facilities. ME 09/08 It is a 13 story building which also looks somewhat dated and in need of renovation. This hotel enjoys a central location close to the business district and just a few minutes drive from the beach. The international airport is within easy reach.The area is known as Ramlet El Baida.

First of all, the staff would not let us in until we paid an additional $25 / night because we had two people in a single room.
The whole building is dirty and run down. The location is decent, about a 10 minute walk to Roucheh and the Beirut
beach, but there is nothing at all immediately near the hotel itself.
We reserved two single rooms. We were forced to get a double room because we had 3 people. Well the single room was average. However, the double room was completely disgusting. The sheets were dirty, the bathtub does not drain properly, the bathroom ceiling leaks water. We requested a different room but we were told that those two were the only rooms with hot water.
Overall the staff were nice, but unfortunately they were not able to solve most of our problems.
My advice: Spend the extra $20 / night on another hotel and you will not regret it.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short drive from hotel
Many tourist attractions can be reached by public transit (buses and vans) departing from Cola, Beirut. It is much cheaper to take a taxi to the Cola and then ride one of those vans to places such as Jounieh, Jbeil, and others.

DISGUSTING- CHANCE OF CATCHING A DISEASE
The front entrance was lovely and gave off the impression that it was going to be a comfortable stay. I am assuming this is as far as the employee of [...] looked. Because the room we were placed in was disgusting!!!!! I would not have placed my
dog in there for the night- in fear that it would contract a deadly disease.ROOM 804When entering it stank of mould – and upon turning on the light you could see mould lining the roof to floor curtains. We went to open the doors that lead onto the balcony and found that it was too dangerous to walk out, due to all the rubble/ cement that had fallen from the balcony above.The bathroom- the toilet seat was not connected to the toilet and fell off every time you sat down- thus becoming redundant in function. The shower head was a hose contraption and you could easily tie it to the wall to have hands free with a clever plastic shopping bag invention. That said, you first had to brave the chance of getting tetanus from the bright orange rust that covered the bath/shower recess where you stood.The bed sheets were suppose to be white, however they were covered in dubious stains and pubic hair. My bed sheets even had the added decoration of cigarette burns all through the fitted sheet. The walls of the room had wall paper that was peeling due to the extra weight of mould all down them.Just to top it off- this hotel is not located anywhere near where the map points. Thus making it about a 3/4 km drive into downtown and an expensive one.
