Nice hotel convenient to Hamra and American University. Quiet, clean and relaxing. Smallish gym and pool on roof but both aesthetically and functionally well-designed. Gorgeous soothing sea views from the endless pool as well as the treadmill. Lots of breakfast options and room WiFi good, though typically a charge for both.

I did a long stay at the Gefinor Rotana recently. An good spot to stay. The location is great, close to the sea, very close to the Hamra district and walking distance to the new downtown.

The staff at the Rotana were all very helpful, the room was comfortable, and I loved the outdoor garden where I had most of my meals. I was there for a meeting and the room, audiovisuals, coffee breaks, etc. were all appropriate and satisfying. The hotel is near the seafront and in a lively neighborhood.

From arrival, the level of staff attention and helpfulness was evident. Nothing was too much trouble. The staff were chatty and cheerful. The hotel was clean and comfortable. It did lack a bit of atmosphere in the public rooms and was exceptionally quiet after about 7pm. Good gym and pool. All-in-all an excellent excellent experience.
