Radisson Blu Martinez Hotel
The Radisson Blu Martinez is one the best places to stay in Beirut for unbridled hedonists, located in the backstreets on the edge of Downtown, in an area populated by the city’s infamous ‘Super Night Clubs’ (see Party). The spacious rooms, vast and classically themed indoor pool and fitness centre and friendly staff make it a worthwhile choice. Hidden behind the Phoenicia Hotel just a short way from the Corniche and Hamra, the Martinez is a getaway from the main hotels. The 185 rooms are simply decorated and functional; and it’s this very unfussiness that makes it an easy place to stay. Retaining the chain hotel tag and its associated implications, the Radisson offers all you’d expect for those who know what they like.
