The Key Beirut

It wouldn’t surprise us if you wanted to hang out in the lobby for your entire stay. 

We worked really hard on designing its distinct Mediterranean feel with stylish seating areas, a mini library and a cool al fresco bar area for those long, hot summer evenings. We had to, since our spacious apartments and rooms have been so incredibly well designed and well equipped that you will probably never want to leave them. 

This is no accident. We hired two of the best architects and designers in town to do the job: renown interior architect Galal Mahmoud of GM Architects, famed for designing hotels across the Middle East, and leading architect Said Bitar of 4B Architects to design the hotel building itself.

We take your safety seriously. We know you expect nothing less. The hotel’s fixtures, fittings, furniture and soft furnishings follow the highest codes and standards of the National Fire Protection Association (NFP). 

The hotel structure and its mechanical and electrical systems also meet NFP standards. Sprinkler systems and fire safety equipment are in place on every floor and The Key team is highly trained in emergency procedures.  

They say location is everything. Ours is unique. There is no sea view, but this is urbane Beirut. Our guests are here to discover city life, do business and be part of the cultural and entertainment scene, of which most is within walking distance or just a very short drive away. And we mean short: 5-10 minutes at the most.

Beach lovers needn’t be disheartened. A 30-minute taxi ride will see you relaxing on some of the best beaches north or south of the capital. 

Talking of transport, all our guests have free access to The Key car service so you can travel anywhere within Greater Beirut and back again. 

But it doesn’t stop there. We have bicycles too, the only hotel in Beirut that does. Grab yourself a helmet, basket and map from reception and use pure pedal power to discover the city. It’s also free. 

There are more than 250 secure parking spaces on four underground levels, ample above ground parking.
