Phoenicia (UK /fɨˈnɪʃə/ or US /fəˈniːʃə/;[2] from the Greek: Φοινίκη, Phoiníkē; Arabic: فينيقية‎, Fīnīqīyah) was an ancient Semitic thalassocratic civilization situated on the western, coastal part of the Fertile Crescent and centered on the coastline of modern Lebanon. Phoenicia Hotel is a reminder of our civilization not lost. Grandiose, and continues to stand up to it's name.

Sitting by the pool on a holiday afternoon, the service was like ive never seen! The surprise came with the menu. Any dinner had a better selection... And then came the food: the caprese salad was a sandwich... The burger, right at the edge. The steak sandwich saltier than salty with a poor taste (whatever taste is left after this...

1st time in Beirut, and although it was a fantastic travel we always feel a little "insecure" the 1st time, but the fantastic Black Car service put you in the right mood. In one sentence... Top Food, Top Service, Top staff, Top HOTEL! Highly recommendable

Comfortable but nothing outstanding if we realize the price of the room. Nice to walk around but dangerous to cross the streets. It seems as the only way they want you to leave the hotel is by taxi. Needs to improve.
