Reviewed 9 February 2011

Our small group of friends stayed in this hotel in January of 2011, and we enjoyed its privacy and the fact that we could make ourselves at home there. The staff, Mahmoud, who took care of things generally, and Mossen, while neither spoke much English (we communicated adequately with them in French) could not have been more helpful, friendly and willing to accommodate our needs. Little things like laundry, were done promptly and for no charge, and internet (which worked most of the time) was free, as opposed to costing upwards of $30 per day in the five stars! Our only complaint was that there were a few maintenance issues in the bathrooms which needed attention.

I stayed at the Dar Arkno for one night before teaming up with 3 other people to tour Libya. This guest house is in the two floors above Arkno Tours, so it is convenient for them to have people who are going on their tours to stay there. The location was poor as there were no shops or restaurants nearby to get food. I had to ask them to buy me some soap, and there was a large bottle of shampoo for oily hair that had been supplied for all the guests who stayed in that room. The door didn't close properly and the light globes needed replacing so you could not read in bed. A basic breakfast was served by a cook in a dirty uniform who looked as though he hated his job. There was never anyone at the desk, so there was no-one to ask questions such as where can I get some food? One young African man seemed to do all the work and he didn't speak any English, only French. There was a manager but he didn't come very often and obviously had no idea of how to run a guest house. It cost USD160 per night which was outrageous for this type of accommodation and they charged USD105 for an airport transfer.

If you are visiting Tripoli there are a few old houses in the old city that are gradually being converted into small hotels. They are near great restaurants and all the shops in the medina. These would be better value.
