Tunis, 11 July 2017:
Tripoli’s Corinthia Hotel is to reactivate its international reservation system.
The 5-star hotel has in fact been open since early 2016 for meetings, conferences, weddings and other such events, despite suggestions to the contrary. The restaurant has likewise been operating on Fridays for brunch and during the past Ramadan for Iftar. There have also been a limited number of guests staying at the Corinthia. Room reservations, though, had to be made direct to the hotel.
As well as reactivating the international reservation system, Corinthia also plans to reopen its Tripoli Café and the Venezia restaurant on a daily basis.
It is believed that the reopenings are part of a move to evaluate the market.
Despite the problems, not least in Tripoli, the number of visitors heading there is said to be on the rise, both for business and other matters.
The hotel was subject to a terrorist attack in January 2015 in which nine people died.
