The Riviera wins the Beirut location award hands down: on the Corniche, fabulous sea views, close to the restaurants and student life of Hamra and AUB and conveniently close to both Downtown and Verdun. It's just a shame that it's not a better hotel. I think it might have been a fine place once but it's showing its age now.... More

The pool and outdoor area is quite nice, and the food in the restaurant is absolutely fantastic. Internet service is... More

Two colleagues and I took a couple of days off and went to Beirut for a weekend. We booked early at the Riviera, and it was a good thing we did. The hotel is in a superb spot on the Corniche. Metres away from the Med, a short walk from Hamra street, it was ideal for three friends to pass... More

This hotel my 1st time in Beirut, the staff was very kind helpful and welcoming for starters. Best to get a room with sea view because the view is amazing!

I booked this hotel because you get access to their "beach club" w/ your stay, and it's apparently one of Beirut's must-see locations. And it really is quite a scene. If I ended up in a place like the Riviera club here at home, I'd probably run screaming from the premises. But that was the fun of it. There was... More

First impressions of this hotel are good: a great location on the Corniche, smart entrance, attentive and helpful staff. The rooms are a reasonable size although, if you don't pay the extra for a sea view, you look straight out onto other buildings. As mentioned by another reviewer, the walls are rather thin and noise from adjacent rooms penetrates easily,... More
