InterContinental Phoenicia Beirut

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Am not used to give away easy full rating reviews, but the Phoenicia deserves every single point. Stayed only a couple of nights at this downtown Beirut location with family and am happy to release my comments on a flawless service, charming staff, outstanding breakfast and also fantastic location. The ambience of this hotel is definitively classic style, I believe it has been recently refurbished and cleanliness is at the top, I cannot complain in any ways or about any matter. Check in and check out were all good an fast and room was great. Restaurant service and quality of food were also at the top. Wi-Fi is not the best speed you can find but does the job. Congratulations to the management and the whole staff for a well-managed and guest service focused hotel.

Best Hotel in Beirut! The staff is great, I tried the rooms in October 2016 and the apartment in May 2017. Both stays were superb. The service us super luxurious, the food variety is amazing and everything tastes great. Location is perfect and the apartment itself is just flawless.

This is my 3rd time to Beirut and have to say this rates as my favourite hotel so far by quite a way. The hotel is situated in downtown Beirut right opposite Zatuna Bay and Marina and has a elegant opulence about it despite being nearly 50years old I believe. A grand marble staircase awaits as you enter through the obligatory security scanner leading to a lovely lobby, fountain and all day cafe. Quick , friendly and knowledgable check in staff and we were offered a late check out without even asking. The lobby leads to a open courtyard with a stunning pool, swinging seats, sofas / sun beds and all round peaceful (despite being in a busy city) area where you can easily relax and unwind. We had a city view suite which had a double bedroom, separate sitting room and bathroom all of a decent size for a city hotel. The rooms and general decor of the hotel although a little old fashioned and tired in some places it is well maintained, clean and well appointed with quality amenities . Our view was of a derelict building and site so probably opt for sea view next time. Has a spa, sauna , steam room, indoor pool and gym with exceptionally new equipment. Service was excellent, attentive, professional, helpful and spoke multiple languages . Price wise was reasonable also for a 5 star city hotel and would definitely use his establishment on my next visit

I congratulate the management, Chef & staff at Mosaic restaurant for the great quality of food, the variety of dishes, service of the waiters. Highly recommend this buffet restaurant at the heart of Beirut. They serve arguileh at the terrace.

My favorite hotel in the whole world (literally!). This is my second time staying here and I will always stay here when visiting Lebanon. I recommend it to everyone. Service is incredible, everyone is sweet and helpful. Rooms are beyond gorgeous!!! IMPECCABLY clean, views are spectacular. Pool is delightful. A+++

The Phoenicia is a landmark in Beirut, standing proud by the marina and waterfront. The location is great and allows you to explore the sea front and the city. The rooms are traditionally decorated but very clean, with comfortable beds and good amenities. The staff are very friends and the buffet breakfast extensive and good value for $30. Certainly my new choice when staying in Beirut.

This was a hotel I frequently stay in because of its location in beirut , it's the biggest hotel and next to all main locations and has large rooms with great view of the sea ,, make sure you take a room with a view , the lobby is great and large . The spa looks great but didn't find a reservation , the breakfast is large and has a terrace area also near the pool , overall it's a great hotel and the price is very reasonable

It is In the heart of Beirut, in walking distance to the corniche and Zaytona Bay. Also next to the late prime minister Rafeeq Al Hariri statue in the spot where he was killed in an terrorist explosion. Lots of small local coffee shops around and restaurants. The rooms are very good and the service is very good.

I stayed here many times. The good thing about this hotel is the services. I liked the rooms beds and restaurants. It has very delicious breakfast buffet. The staff were professional. I strongly recommend it.

Well-appointed rooms, beautiful public spaces, and excellent meeting facilities. Breakfast has tremendous choices, all of it well-prepared and delicious. Lunch buffet also is good- often hotels like this have many different cuisine choices that are mediocre. Not the case here!
