I stayed at Phoenicia Intercontinental Hotel for a week. I must say their service was OUTSTANDING. The reservation staff, the wonderful personalities of Mr. Paul Hajj and Jessy Safi from guest relations, the club lounge staff, and the business center staff were extraordinary employees and I cannot say enough about them. They went out of their way to make my... More

The place itself is very nice, it's a well located hotel in the heart of Beirut city and few steps from the Zeytouneh Bay where you can have a walk near the beach and have a lot of dining options (you can eve have shisha). I like the big fountain in the lounge and the great food in Mosaic restaurant.... More

We had the most beautiful buffet for lunch near the pool area. We loved the variety and quality of the food. Service was impeccable and decor as well was gorgeous. Highly recommended even for those not staying at the hotel.

My husband and I spent a long weekend at the Phonecia with our 10 month old baby. The rooms were very spacious- even with the baby crib!

I was there for a conference and stayed 2 nights. Generally it is nice and decent. Staff speaks French and Arabic, English is ok with the white collars. Service and the wifi was slow, anyway the best spot to stay in Beirut for a business trip.

The reason I experience this hotel as the best in the city is because of the very friendly staff ready to assist when needed. Also, the food is very delicious too, don't skip the breakfast! Rooms are also very clean and always refreshed.
