3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

I have stayed several times at the Commodore and it never seems to amaze me that from the most basic room to a suite the floors are covered in Linoleum. It seems that the Commodore's glory days have passed it by.

The rooms are a little jaded and poor in quality. There is a general air of mustiness about the corridors and rooms.

Views of adjoining buildings are depressing, however the hotel is centerally located in Hamra and is a short stroll to the main shopping centre.

Try to buy something for breakfast because you will be disappointed by the offering of the hotel.

Stayed here for 5 nights and I don't see how it is 5 star??? Anyway it had a good enough gym and comfortable room. Not the best location either. WIFI is very expensive in fact I stayed at properties in Byblos with less star rating and WIFI was free. The hotel overall needs a renovation and needs to offer complimentary WIFI.

As I am a frequent traveler to Lebanon for busienss and personal trips, Le commodore hotel is the first hotel to consider staying at , perfect location in the heart of Hamra, very comfortable – convenient space - rooms, delicious restaurants with variety of food, in addition to the extremely friendly and flexible staff that makes sure you feel home and welcomed, it is a 360 package that makes the value for money very reasonable.

Room Tip: Never faced any trouble with any of the rooms

Im not impressed. It could have been better. It used to be better a couple of years ago. But if you are only in the hotel to sleep on a clean sheet. Then you can manage here. The staff are knowledgeable but are too uptight to be of any help.

We stayed for 3 nights, we took 2 rooms both views were bad, the food for breakfast was very basic. However the staff were nice. All in all I don't rate it as a 4 stars hotel. It should be given a 3 star's rating.

A long weekend fun-with-friends trip to Beirut. The location of the hotel was very convenient, and the service was excellent - the front desk recommended restaurants, booked them for us, organized for a taxi driver who ended up driving us around for most of our stay. Nice, clean rooms, overall a solid experience. We found the hotel breakfast pricey so did not try it, but there are plenty of good options to eat outside.

I'd heard how good the hotel was and so looked forward to my stay here. Though front desk staff (at night) were rude, and i was given a room where the central a/c intake vent had a wet carpet smell. i was told it was my fault for having the thermostat at such a low temperature. Anyway bed's comfy but hallways towards the rooms on each floor are a bit gloomy and carpets look old. nevertheless an enjoyable time, but for the money i expected more.
