What is the point of a hotel chain if it doesn't keep up a standard of service? Sofitel is known for inconsistent quality across its network of socalled "luxury" hotels but their Beirut property is simply unacceptable.
Tiny bathrooms, terrible windows that were hardly soundproof, 3 star quality bathroom amenities, 3 star quality breakfast, pathetic maintenance ( carpeting did not even reach the wall which meant you could see the cement beneath the carpet all along the wall, shower was at least 20 years old), and a reception area and staff more adequate for a mediocre airport side hotel than for a supposed 4 star city centre property.
