From 1975 to 1990, the area was razed by civil war. Now restored, the neighbourhood (known as Solidere) is the energetic soul of the city’s new identity.
These days, Beirut is considered the most liberated city in the Arab world, sitting as it does on the edge of the Occidental Mediterranean.
Solidere is the downtown neighbourhood where everything happens, with Le Gray, Beirut at its core.
When staying with us you are within walking distance of the city’s shoreline, Downtown’s luxury shops and the gastronomic lures of Gemmayze neighbourhood. Here, the dazzling glamour, glitz and joie de vivre of modern Beirut play out against a richly historic backdrop, from Roman to Phoenician to traditional Levantine.
