“Very Pleasant Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Very nice Hotel, the food was good and the staff were very helpful.
The room was clean and well maintained with its own balcony although the view wasn't particularly good.
I took approximately 30 minutes to travel to and from the airpot from this location.
I would stay here again.

The location is very good regarding easy access to Al-Hamra street and Al-Hamra shopping area, but the view is not very nice as it is surrounded by high old buildings; all other issues are very good - excellent especially the cleanness, braekfast and sleep quality

I went to Lebanon and I chose the Commodore for its location in Hamra shopping area. The hotel was only few steps far from Al Hamra st. I stayed in a balcony room overlooking the pool with a very nice view. It was comfy and well equipped. The flooring was parquet wood so the room was very clean and fresh smelling - unlike carpeted rooms. The staff members were hospitable and accommodated all my needs; including my bizarre omlet choices. I had to extend my stay for one day and they offered me the corporate rate without having to call home. I really enjoyed my stay and it is definitely my choice if I went there again.

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
