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

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

Second time for 5years i stay at Sofitel the gabriel, i came back. Now they have done a remarkable renovation fully, modern and zen, and the famous classy/cozy feel of the hotel still alive. Great job. Like one review said "feel at home" its indeed the case. Also very convenient location, central high end area (a little noisy/crowded around, but... More

Been staying at the sofitel in beirut for 2weeks already, for business. I'm used to the sofitel dubai which is bigger but I have to say quality and service are impeccable. Rooms and bathrooms are large and brand new, typical sofitel style and refinement. Generous breakfast and lovely indoor swimming pool. Located in ashrafia area, central beirut. I'd suggest rooms...

Old world service with modern amenities, and excellent attention to customer detail by each and every member of the staff, no matter if I checked in at 3 a.m., or needed minor assistance during mid-day. Walking distance to the mall and other shopping, gyms, beauty salons, incredible Sassine restaurants and movies. as well as some of the best restaurants. For... More
