1.33km from Iyyam El LoulouBeverly Hotel Beirut This was our first visit to Lebanon and we chose this hotel for our 4 night stay due to its location. Its a 20 min drive from the airport and all the major attractions are walking distance. Our family suite was lovely had everything you would need. Microwave, fridge, tea/coffee facilities, hairdryer, safety deposit box. Toiletries we're also provided and we're quite decent too, shampoo, shower gel, toothbrush /toothpaste. Hotel staff were really friendly and helpful. Layla at reception was particularly helpful and always had a smile on her face as did Hassan. Reason for rating it a 4 star is due to breakfast. This could've been better with a few more choices to cater for a European pallette. We went at a time when the situation in Beirut was unstable but as tourists we never felt unsafe. You could hardly tell anything was going on. We visited Martyrs Square and saw where all the protests were taking place but that was during the day. We stayed away from this area during the evenings as didn't want to get into the mix of things especially travelling with children. Tips : Use uber to go to far away places. McDonald's is 6 min walk. Turn right when you come out of the hotel and walk all the way down. You will see it on your left. Zaituna Bay is a 5 min walk. Turn left when you come out of the hotel. Loads of eateries there with stunning views. Avoid visiting Souk al Ahad. This was a waste of time. It's more of a local market, nothing for tourists. Hamra was ok. Just shops and food places. Visit Jeita Grotto, Byblos and Lady of Lebanon you will love it as we did. Very beautiful and stunning views. You will have to pay entrance fees to all these places but not that expensive. We booked a private tour that included all these sights to visit in one day. From January 2020 Lebanon will only be accepting their local currency and no other including USD so ensure you have exchanged enough before you go. Tawouk is a really good place to eat. Hardly any tourist shops around for bringing gifts back. I would recommend buying anything you see on the tourist places you visit as we didn't see anything local to where we were staying or any of the nearby areas. Food was very expensive. Even places like Mcdonalds. A meal was around £7.50 and Mcflury was about £2.50. Overall we had a lovely stay and would definitely return. It's a really beautiful country with lots to see. Once the situation in Lebanon is calmed down and a proper government is formed that invests in the people and its country it will surely make it a better place for locals and tourists.
