    Standard top class hotel


    Incredible how a top hotel is acting and receiving tourists. We had to wait about an hour and half to get a room and key. International passport control etc.etc.
    And on our return from Benghazi, the local guide got the message that the hotel was overbooked.

    Unique Quality: It is definatly not unique, but the servants are unfriendly and not yet prepared to receive tourists.

    Directions: Near the coast and the Al-Fatah business center

    Great view over the sea


    A large international hotel with an open lobby leading to the reception, restaurants, a few small shops and the lifts. Good views from the higher floors. There is nothing very special about this hotel, but it is a very pleasant place to stay.

    Directions: Near Dhat El-Emad Towers

    Good Hotel in Tripoli


    It is a nice hotel less ore more downtown Tripoli and most rooms are facing the sea. When we have been there in the winter (DEC) the pool was filled with dark dirty water, maybe they clean it for the summer :-)

    Oh, and your room does include the breakfast but when going there there are two tables. One is included and the other is "extra" and you will be charged for that!

    Unique Quality: Nice rooms and a lot of Arabic TV channels ...

Must be one of the best in Tripoli

by Luchonda about Al Kabir Hotel

Rather by coincidence i stayed in this luxury hotel. (the best next to Corinthia hotel)
Returning from Benghazi to Tripoli we got the message that the Bab al-Bahr hotel was overbooked ??? So our local guide had to find a solution and after some tele calls we could stay in this hotel, next to the green square. A great experience after all. Thank you again Saïd, you are a perfect guide and assistant.
But all this shows that Libya is not yet ready to receive tourists and respect some rules and reservations. However .... Luxery rooms and facilities

Best Value in Tripoli

by New_Mex_Man about Four Seasons 1 or 2

I've been going to Libya since it opened, for business. The best hotel is the Corinthia (aka Bab al Africa) - it should be at USD 350 per night. Most western business people (translation - oil people) stay there. It takes credit cards and reservations over the phone. THis is remarkable in Libya. Most of the other hotels are government run (al-Kabir, al-Maheeri, Bab al-Bahr). They don't accept credit cards, and will only reserve a room with a cash deposit. Forget phoning up for a reservation. And don't just show up and ask for a room, for they are always sold out with government people. Plus, you're likely to get thrown out mid-stay because an important govt official has arrived. So unless you're traveling with a tour agency based in Libya, you should not get a room at these hotels. A newer private hotel is the 4 Seasons (no relation to the hotel chain). It has a sister around the block called the 4 Seasons 2. Neither is luxurious, but are very nice, totally acceptable for business travel. There is phone, TV in every room. In 4 Seasons 1, there is internet available in the room (although what that means is that there is an internet plug in the room...whether the connection works is a totally different matter). Rates tend to run around 100-120 LD per night, which is not bad. It includes breakfast. It is the best buy in town. They also take reservations over the phone, and accept credit cards (shock!). Visa is best, as Mastercard always is a problem for some reason. Pool? View? Have you been to Tripoli?
