The Experience

The Albergo Hotel,

A “Magnificent Residence” is located in the heart of old Beirut in the district of Achrafieh.  Since its opening in 1998, the Albergo hotel has been a member of the renowned global organization of Relais & Châteaux, synonymous with luxury, ageless charm and culinary delight.  This city mansion boasts a delightful ochre façade that hides the most imaginative decor, setting a link between the Orient and the West; a tribute to both De Nerval and Lamartine and a wink to Pierre Loti. It is an invitation to discover a country full of mystery, Lebanon, the crossroad of ancient civilizations.

The Albergo Hotel has 33 suites of all categories with each one unique in its concept and decor; Oriental or Colonial – each an invitation to enjoy a different journey to new destinations.  The bathrooms are an exploration into luxury with natural lighting, Jacuzzi baths, precious Briare’s porcelain and marble marquetry throughout; Carrare, Paphos, and even Lebanese marble embossed with authentic fossils.  A special room attendant will help you organize your belongings and even tidy your wardrobe.  All suites are equipped with an LCD of over 90 channels, wireless internet access, hi-fi system, a mini bar, individual temperature control, two direct telephone lines. A fax machine can also be made available if required. Each suite is outfitted with a secure safe.

The restaurant combines works of art with tables hand-made in Damascus, where our guests can dine in a relaxing and quiet atmosphere with gentle and elegant service.  Our exquisite meals can be enjoyed in the dining room or on the Terrace.  The menu, an original creation of Chef Nicola Offredi, a disciple of Sergio Mei, will be appreciated by the most discerning gourmet. Inspired by international cuisine, the Lombardian chef complements his menu with fresh pasta and the traditional risotto.  The highlight offering is the fresh, world renowned Persian Beluga caviar.

The Terrace of the Albergo Hotel situated on the 9th floor features an enchanting garden of Jasmine and dwarf fig trees with a magnificent view of the Beirut rooftops and the Mediterranean Sea.  Nestled in this oasis of flowers, the rooftop pool leaves the guest with an indelible impression of serenity in a fascinating setting.

Since its opening in 1992, Al Dente has become a leading restaurant in Beirut and, most certainly, one of the most famous in the downtown area.  It features our 5-star Italian Chef who has created some of the most exciting dishes and desserts influenced by both Italian and Mediterranean cuisine.  Enjoy superb Italian food in elegant surroundings, ideal for lunch or dinner, with a selective wine list of Italian and French “Grands Crus”.
