The Massabki hotel is a great venue to explore the Bekaa region in Lebanon. Located in Chtaura on the main road, it is very easily accessible and in this time of the year, it is surrounded with a nice white snow layer which adds to its rusticity. The stay there is very enjoyable as the hotel maintained an old fashioned...

This is a nice little hotel in Shtawrah..the hotel has just 2 floors..rooms are wide and clean and have balcony..the bed was comfortable..the staff was helpful...the location is quiet close to Taanayel reserve. What I didn't like is the noise outside..we couldn't sleep well since there was a wedding party and it didn't end til 3 am!

We visited the hotel for lunch at the river restaurant. The welcoming was very warm and professional, the hostesses and waiters treat you like a vip. All tables are located by the river and well shaded under the trees. The food variety and quality is excellent, so is the taste. The desserts are amazing, you just can't get enough. After...

Heart-warming place. Beautiful old architecture and masonry. Cheerful and helpful staff. The food is delicious. Don't miss out a glass of wine by the fireplace in the chimney lounge - during winter of course. The outdoor scenery is breathtaking. Relaxing... and it comes with a private river!
