This hotel pretends to be a Sofitel, but it is not. Service is totally amateur and inexperienced . Except the bad taste, rooms are comfortable, but noisy. If it is not the street, it is workers on the other side, or driller during the day, or neighbours TV. They did some renovation but it remains the same un-professional hotel. If... More

Very nice hotel that I have used more than one time, nicely located in ashrafiayah. Very comfortable rooms and welcoming staff that looks after the details. Would recommend it specially for bussiness trips as it is near by from the downtown with 10 minutes walk at night.

This property had been recommended to us by a large number of people, so expectations were high. First, the good; Pre-arrival, the front desk staff were incredibly helpful, accommodating various requests and making a few tour & restaurant bookings for us as well.

Sofitel, being a leading international hotel brand – I was expecting more. The room was comfortable and spacious and the bathroom had all the amenities required. The cleanliness of the room and bathroom could not be faulted. When it comes to the F & B – that’s where the wheels fall off. After ordering room service it’s normal for the... More

Well designed and positioned for the business traveler. After a bad start losing my bag in arrivals the front desk staff soon had all the overnight items needed in position, nothing was too much trouble. The restaurant service and food was excellent - very attentive but not intrusive with the attention to details that makes you want to return. The... More

Hotel has the funniest rule to charge the first night as guarantee during check-in where many others go for pre-authorization on the credit card. Front desk officers charged my credit card for somebody else’s stay without my information and did not deduct USD 233 during check-out. Calling the hotel for correction after noticing the mistake on credit card statement and... More

Stayed at the Sofitel Beirut this summer while I was in Lebanon for a friend's wedding. The hotel is located in an upscale and very safe part of town, only a few minutes walk from down town beirut and around 10min walk from the amazing waterfront/riviera. I would definitely insist on the "safe" part, because when I was in beirut... More

I had a nice stay in Le Gabriel. I did not know before that it belongs to Sofitel. Sofitel usually proposes huge hotels. This one is a very small boutique hotel but quite nice. Rooms are a bit small but fine, morning breakfast and food are fine. The staff is very nice and friendly. Location is convenient, 10 minutes walk... More
