I stayed here ten days during my last trip to Beirut. I only came to this hotel because my previous hotel was completely booked for the various music festivals and I needed to stay close in the area. The hotel is near to Hamra Street, so easy to walk over there for the shops and restaurants. The hotel itself has an Italian restaurant (you can even eat out by the pool) as well as a Benihana. I ate once at the Italian restaurant and it was pretty good, although perhaps a bit pricey. There are many restaurants nearby and the Younnes Cafe around the corner from the Commodore offers 2 hours of free wifi with coffee or a meal ... you'll want to go there since the cost of the wifi in the hotel borders on outrageous (see other reviews)!! I was fortunate to be placed on the 8th floor which give access to an upstairs lounge that is quite nice in the evening with drinks, snacks and large sofas for chatting or watching the large screen TV. There's an expresso machine in this lounge, too. The room was all right, the bed comfortable and the fresh air from the porch was nice, too. The bathroom was modern, although the shower curtain was hung way too far into the tub such that is stuck too me every time I took a shower (yes, I do that hate that). The breakfast was pretty good, with eggs to order and lots of breads and assorted local dishes. The coffee was NOT good ... just tasteless although, it did not look weak. The room did have a coffee pot and water (not so common in Beirut) so I could at least make a cup or two or tea. The pool is large, but the hotel actually puts a fair amount of it in shade in the afternoon - I don't think they had much choice on the location. The gym is small. The business center is just adequate. The staff were quite friendly and helpful, no complaints there and no language difficulties. I had a good stay at this hotel, but I'm too sure how the price compares with some of the newer properties. The location is good and even the beach isn't all that far away.
