Set to launch mid 2018, the 110-room Oaks hotel will be located in Sodeco, a commercial area of Beirut.
The hotel is around five minutes’ drive from the central downtown area and 15 minutes from Beirut Rafic Hariri International Airport.
Minor Hotels CEO Dillip Rajakarier said: "Adding Lebanon to our footprint has considerable strategic value and we are very pleased to be partnering with Allied Investment Group to launch our first hotel in the country.
"Beirut is a dynamic city with so much to offer and is widely regarded as one of the most influential trend setters in the region."
What was once Hotel de Ville Beirut has now closed for refurbishment and will relaunch as Oaks.
The property will have guest rooms and suites, all-day dining restaurant, lounge bar, café, rooftop pool and dedicated conference facilities.
