Very basic hotel. Rooms are clean but extremely basic. No western channels on the tv and the rooms are noisy since they are right next to the beach. Dont be surprised to hear children on the beach into the small hours of the morning. The libyans seem to come alive later in the day as the heat dies down. I...

Stayed at this hotel several times over the years and this hotel has gone downhill to say the least.

Although the banks...

Our stay at Bab Al Bahr Hotel was memorable but too short. I really liked the setting and the friendly atmosphere but did not stay long enough to enjoy it. The staff were vey helpful as we were filming and always in need of something or another. I can recommend it anytime.

Above average for Libya. Book a suite as that way you get a jacuzzi for around £60 a night. Food not great but the rooms are good.
