The staff were unhelpful and would be better placed working for the Islamic state (when we arrived they looked for a marriage cert from me and my partner and after some argument finally begudgingly gave us the room ... (If this is the policy it should be reflected in the rules of hotel)...the room had no lighting and we ended...

I have booked a normal room to this hotel and the receptionists upgraded me to the ones facing the fortress. There is also some more hotels in Sidon but if you arrive during the night and with a taxi as I have done, directly from the airport of Lebanon then this is your one and only option. For saving time...

We arrived around 22:30 Noisy street, not secured at all, At the reception a tall guy totally tattooed, Dirty reception, not a reception, Just a book with few lines written, We booked through a website, When we arrived we asked to see the rooms first, Answer: the elevator doesn't work, He asked us to follow him to see the rooms...

I stayed at this place for one night and run away. When you walk inside this hotel you are impressed with it's beautiful decor and historical items, and it is part of a Crusader building just modified with the pass of times. I saw it and decided to stay for a night. After a walk through the Souks, the crusader...

Could be an amazing hotel, great location, nice old building, but it is not !!! Lousy place, way too expensive (110 USD cash) and the rooms and service really suck. There are not many hotels in Sidon/Saida so you will probably end up in this one. Be prepared :-) But the souk behind the hotel is really great and all...

The hotel in an renovated old building along the sea coast opposite the waterfront. There is ancient authentic market on one side and Sidon Sea Castle in the sea in front of the hotel. Opposite the hotel is an upmarket restaurant on the sea. The waterfront is alive all night with coffee shops serving Turkish coffee and the Hubble Bubble....

This could be a great boutique hotel- beautiful old building, old stone walls, right on the harbor with great views, furniture in oriental style and a lift that would not be out of place in a design hotel. At $120 for a triple room, it was the most expensive place we stayed in in Lebanon. Sadly, it was not the...

Room view was great. Breakfast is reused so be careful (esp if a bee had sit on the food while being served to others, and they top up the same - unhygenic). I had half used lurpak, and wondered if the opened haloumi and lebaneh was topped up and served? They should change to buffet.Half of the fixtures and lights...

I stumbled upon this place when I didn't feel like driving any more, and I was pleasantly surprised. The staff were nice and helpful (except for the guy managing my breakfast, He just wasn't very "energetic," but he did warm my refrigerated bread upon request), and I really liked the location (across from the harbor with free parking, on the...

Very poor value for money, dirty sheets, smelly bathroom, noisy staff, horrible town. Give this hotel and the town a very wide berth if you are in Lebanon. The corniche terminates in a huge mountain of rubbish, and the whole seafront area stinks to high heaven.
