The hotel might be good or average but there is no standards at all. I have made my reservation on-line from another third party website, and imagine what, they said that they never book online and I have to pay for my reservation which already paid. I dont have any other solution but to book again and claim my money...

The location is nice, in front of the seaside (the seaside is terrible btw) between the Corinthia and the JW Marriot. The hotel although has been renovated is not very clean. I asked to change the first room the gave me because there were stains everywhere. The second one was slightly better but still inadequate. The breakfast is very poor...

I visited the Bab Al Bahr Hotel yesterday. I heard before that it was quite rundown, but found that they have pretty recently renovated the hotel from the 7th floor up. This hotel has one of the nicest views of any hotel in Tripoli as it sits overlooking the beautiful Mediterranean coastline! It is also not far from downtown Tripoli,...

I stayed in Bab el bahr for a conference for 4 days. The rooms are spacious, the staff are very friendly. The buffet is nice, away from strange Libyan food. You will definitely enjoy the view. The hotel is not far from shopping mall and historical places. Dont expect more than nice stay for short time.

Description is limited to plain English - true expression would require Anglo Saxon or worse. Had four attempts to get me a room which was not already occupied! One person (a lady I think) was in the shower!!! AVOID THIS PLACE! But your stories would make a good dinner party even better. VDC

Terrorists must keep banking hours as the baggage screening went off duty at night and there seemed to be no control on the doors. Our room still had poo in the toilet and unmade bed etc from previous guest so room was changed. On returning, the door-key needed reprogramming which was done by security; which was unfortunate because after midnight...

But its a bit run down now. The staff are abviously government employees and don't seem to enjoy their job. A bit depressing. The entire hotel was evicted with less than 24 hours notice due to a conference booking when I was there. Food was fairly bland other than the Libyan soup (nice!). Slow internet service only available in lobby....

The property is run down and uncared for. The sea in front of the hotel must be the depository of waste from all over the area, as the sea breeze was incredibly foul at times. Food-wise, I only tried the breakfast which was ok, with a fair amount of choice, but coffee is nescafe and sometimes we had to wait...

Hopefully some day there will be some decent hotels in Libya that are run to western standards, but until then you will either have to pay $600 for the Corinthia, or put up with these old Libya hotels. My review is tainted by the fact that somewhere along the way (not at the Hotel) I contracted food poisoning, and so...
