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

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.
