Hotel Monroe, never again!

i don't know how we ended up booking in that hotel downtown beirut opposite phoenicia, but i can assure you this is the last time i stay at there - we reached the hotel after midnight, checked in, went to our rooms to relax and obviously we needed to drink water - so we tried getting some from the mini bar but it was locked with no keys around - we called reception for help after which they promised to send someone to open that mini bar - we waited for half an hour but no one showed up, so we decided to crash on the bed and simply forget about water - a friend wanted internet access, so they brought him a 4 meter wire as the hotel doesn't offer wifi!

the next morning we went to the conference room and there was this projector hanging down from the ceiling with weird clips - we wanted internet so the guy offered us 3 packages: half an hour for 4$, 1 hour for 6$ or 24 hours for 44$!!! that was hilarious, who pays for internet nowadays? the best part was the power cut in the middle of the presentation - but hey, nothing is impossible in lebanon, everything switches over to the power generator and life goes on! typically lebanon!

oh and about that morning sea view? absolutely gorgeous!

      Who cares what's inside your room as long as you have this view outside your window ;) Welcome back!
