Rooms are very well appointed. We were upgraded to a junior suite which was nice and large. Clearly done up recently. Modern fittings and furnishings with very handy appliances (e.g. plenty of UK plug sockets etc). Good / free wifi. Service was generally excellent. Very helpful and friendly. Hotel is located in a quiet residential part of town - very... More

Rooms are very wide and luminous with very up to date furniture and services. They could probably improve the bath amenities (they offer very cheap products). Personnel are very kind and discreet. There were just 3 or 5 guest while i was there and probably because of that the breakfast display was ok but not as wide as i would... More

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.
