Stayed in the hotel for 3 weeks. Room was very clean, staff are friendly and helpful, breakfast is above average but room service is very expensive. This one of the very few "safe" hotels in Libya. Highly recommended for your business trips.

We had good experiences already 1 year ago in this hotel, but we were booked to many other hotels by our libyan partner afterwards. At least we can tell now from solid experiences on hotels in Tripoli, that Al Waddan is the best... More

This hotel is part of the tripoli history. It's a good hotel with the following point of stoke: good room, not noisy, good breakfast and restaurant, familiar environment, Free internet connection.

absolutely absurd, even for Africa with their filthy carpets, intermittent wi fi connection and nasy Southeast Asia front desk staff. Hotel seems to be empty, seems I was one of the only people gullible enough to pay these rates. Never again.
