2011 bomb attack
On 1 June 2011, the hotel came to international attention during the Libyan civil war when explosives were detonated in a car nearby. A spokesman for the National Transitional Council called the bombing a "cowardly act". It was suspected that an officer was killed, and many people started to shout chants against Muammar Gaddafi while the hotel was cordoned off.
