Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Situated downtown this whole area has been closed off for some time due to the recent unrest in 2022/23 and is even now only accessible by tourist and those with permission (military guards). The area was also damaged in the port blast. Thus all the shops and restaurants are gutted with no windows..like a ghost town and sad what on previous visits was a buzzing place to shop, drink, eat and relax. The clock tower very beautiful. Worth a stroll through and hoping one day it will be restored to its former glory.

A lovely quare in the centre of the old town. Wonderful.

The Place de l'Etoile is not possible to visit at the moment.

is situated in the Beirut city of Lebanon. The square is an unmistakable symbol of Beirut, most prominent for its Art Deco design. It is one of the best place in this city. Tourists come here from all over the world with their family members and friends to visit this place.
The 1930s clock tower, gem of the square, was a blessing from Lebanese-Brazilian émigré Michel Abed to the Lebanese Government. Today, the square is loaded with individuals from all kinds of different backgrounds, travelers, and local people, adults, and kids, who come here to eat, walk or appreciate the road life.

Despite the wars and re-building, this section of Beirut retains the old time atmosphere. The square is peaceful and beautiful. Relax with a cup of coffee on the square.

A series of roads containing cafes, restaurants and shops radiate from the central clock tower. It is so relaxing to just sit and have a coffee or smoke the hookah and watch the world go by. We must have spent 3 hours just sitting and watching. The soldiers did not mind us taking photos but I would ask first.

If the whole of Beirut was like this, then Beirut would have the greatness of Paris or London. It is in a car-free zone, just great, an amazing place! Has some other great places nearby like the Mohammad Al-Amin Mosque,the St. George Maronite Cathedral and Sint-George Cathedral.
