Hotel Albergo Beirut
Like mountains meet the sea in Beirut, so do various ancient cultures. The land’s historic multicultural heritage is captured in the breath-taking design of Albergo Hotel Beirut- a refurbished Ottoman house located in the trendiest part of the city. Just 3.7 miles from Beirut International Airport, Albergo is close to commercial centers such as Rue Monot and International Exhibition and Leisure Center, as well as to the National Museum and Pigeon’s Rock.
The hotel is a visual delight with its blasts of rich colors, Ottoman chandeliers, Oriental rugs, Damascus wooden furniture and rich details in every nook. For its luxurious facilities, historical design and special features, this boutique hotel features as one of the world’s 500 Relais & Châteaux fellows.
The hotel has 33 rooms and suites. Ask the friendly staff for a tour of the hotel before you pick your room. Each room is delightfully designed and represents an aspect of Lebanon’s history. Some suites have a private terrace that resembles a hanging garden, complete with jasmine and orange blossom trees. The romantic bathrooms made of marble, wood and stained glass windows are a luxurious delight. The hotel is also famous for its Italian Restaurant, The Al Dente and the Rooftop Restaurant overlooking the sea, both run by acclaimed chef Nicola Offredi. Yazhou, the new French-Asian restaurant, offers a unique fusion cuisine prepared by the Chefs, the Pourcel brothers. Breakfast is served on the terrace, with a panoramic view of the Mediterranean Sea and Mount Lebanon.
The private swimming pool on the terrace is the perfect place to relax after a hectic day in Beirut. The hotel offers a business center, a fitness center, sauna and massage services. Expect Arabic beauty and hospitality at its best here.
