As soon as you walk through the polished -wood and brass-tack studded door of this charming, first-rate boutique hotel in right inside the gates of Tripoli's medina, you know you are somewhere special.

The El-Khan is situated in the old town and has been lovingly restored with traditional furniture and furnishings. The central courtyard has a marble fountain in which hibiscus blossoms were floating as the water played. Palms and flowering plants in planters created a lovely atmosphere together with the antique furniture and comfortable sofas. Ancient lamps glittered and in the evenings... More

Sensitively restored old houses in the old city have been cleverly combined to create this hotel . It has a series of open courtyards with rooms off. They are full of character , for instance the telephones would grace a museum but have been restored to function. The colour choices throughout are a delight. Breakfast had an excellent choice .

An absolutely delightful hotel, situated very conveniently in the Old Town of Tripoli. It was beautifully decorated and furnished, radiating an atmosphere of calm, and the staff were most charming and helpful. I would go back to Tripoli just to stay here again.

What a beautiful little gem of a hotel, tucked away in the old city. I loved the colours and the old style. There was a real feeling of being immersed in another culture. Great to relax with a book in then open atria and the staff were absolutely delightful. Rooms clean and bed very comfortable. Just rather noisy as mine... More

I have just returned from Tripoli and have to say that this hotel was fabulous. I would definitely recommend staying here. The riad and rooms were beautiful and the location very good. A good choice of foods at breakfast and all very fresh. Would definitely stay here again ... in fact I did not want to leave.

A lovely hotel with friendly approachable staff. Comfortable clean beds; had a great nights sleep there. Lots of nooks and crannies to relax with a good book. Have no plans to return to Tripoli but would go back just to stay in this hotel.
