Rooms, service and staff 5 star...small boutiquey place in good location close to town. Only complaint is allowing hotel to book you a cab which they offer very willingly, but with hotel tax, etc the fare is at least 3 times the price of calling / hailing one yourself. beware.

I stay in Le Gabriel for all my business trips to Beirut. It is located in a very quiet area of Beirut. All the rooms are totally new with large LED TV for the World Cup. The employees are very useful; if you need anything just ask them. This location is perfect and very secure. Plenty of restaurant just walking... More

The Sofitel Le Gabriel Achrafieh is a very nice hotel cosy one. The hotel is in a very nice area! next to Place Sassine, and not so far from a Mall center. The Bar is restaurant too, people are nice, and you will not find the same as in big hotels, but you will find the confort and the luxe... More

Travelled to Beirut for business. My client put me into this hotel. What a good choice. Very European feel with good clean rooms and beds a changed every day if you want. Small friendly bar. In a city as mad as Beirut where nothing works and where everything is half built it was a pleasure to stay here. Very well... More

I'm not quite sure why I liked this hotel, but I did. It is small, nicely tucked away in a safe and characterful part of Beirut, the staff are genuinely out to please, and I was upgraded to a room the size of a small cinema, which always works... Yes, the gym was out of order (back in service early... More

This place does not merit the Sofitel name. The pool, gym and spa are all closed for "improvements", the lounge area is non existent and the breakfast service was truly shameful. The room was clean, but the bathroom was too small to swing a kitten in. Never again.

Was on business trip, location is good with a near by ABC shopping mall offering variety of restaurants and coffee shops. Clean and tidy. Friendly staff. The only disadvantage was a construction site just behind the hotel generating some noise, however work stops early enough before bed time I would recommend this hotel

Rooms spacious with all 5* equipment. very welcoming staff also, all speak French and English. One drawback is the gym (and massage room) that is a bit small and not too many machines.. nice indoor swimming pool though. I... More

Since my last visit in April last year, nearly all the rooms have been renovated. The result is spectacular. They told us that the first floor and lobby and lifts would all be finished within 6 months including a new coffee shop. The rooms are really super, very well designed with lovely colours. They are very spacious and the bed... More
