“Nest business value hotel in Downtown.”

Service was great, centrally located to downtown, but in a quet neighborhood. Great pool and health club! Fully equipped business center with very helpful and competent staff. Best overall value in the sector.

A dated hotel with poor attention to detail. Not impressed at all. On arrival my room was not acceptable; the wardrobe was damp and housed a mouldy pillow. When I complained to the management, they were very apologetic and switched me to a junior suite, which was much better. Attention to detail, I had booked a 'business room' the positive with this was the nespresso machine, but never had enough coffee or creamer. I never once received a newspaper even though I had requested it twice (and it was meant to be part of the business room package). I tried some of the overpriced biscuits from the mini bar, but clearly they had been sat there for some time as they were stale. In the bathroom, after the first day they didn't replace the face cloths so had to be requested, and I try to conserve water by reusing my towels, but they took them also and didn't leave a replacement. On a positive note the staff were very nice, but the attention to detail was very disappointing considering the star rating for this hotel. The locations is great, walking distance to the famous Phoenician, the beach and Hamra are also very close by. Unfortunately, I won't be staying here again

Room Tip: Request a junior suite

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to give your feedback following your recent stay at our hotel.
It was great of you to point out the positives you experienced with our location and staff.

Feedback is considered an opportunity to continually improve our services and facilities for our guests.

I am anxious to learn of the problems that you experienced. Please accept my sincere apologies.

We strive to provide a really high level of service so I was devastated to hear that you weren't completely happy with your stay.

After your room was upgraded to a Junior Suite the first room was immediately put out of service and our Chief engineer checked it personally and the damp was unfortunately caused by an unexpected leakage on the back of the closet and this was immediately repaired.

I have also read your other comments and have followed up with the concerned departments in detail to ensure such errors relating newspaper and room amenities are not repeated.

I would like to assure you that we pay careful attention to feedback such as you have provided, taking immediate steps to correct any deficiency.

I was sorry to learn that you will not be returning to our hotel even though you found most of the staff really nice. I hope my above explanation will return your trust in our hotel and please do not hesitate to contact me directly for any future reservation should you change your mind as I certainly would like to have the opportunity to make this up to you.

Best Regards
Nizam Bou Antoun
General Manager

For a Radisson Blu hotel I was underwhelmed with it and thought it was pushing the star rating (I think officially it's a four star) to the max. The building was dated and it was expensive, I seem to remember that the breakfast wasn't the best either. On the plus side, it's location was great for a walk down Paris Avenue and the staff were helpful and pleasant.

I stayed in Radisson Martinez hotel for tow nihgt for business reason in April this here.
Hotel is well located near to Corniche and easy to be reached from airport and from north.
Bulding generally is a little bit old and not so well mantained both in the rooms (furniture was a little scrappy) and in the common areas (first day I arrived some water was dripping from the ceiling in the breakfast area).
Staff is quite helfpul and skilled vut the overall impression is below the average standards of Radisson.
Pool seemed to be nice but I did not tested as too crowded.

Considering that rooms are spacious with free Internet, it has to be considered a good convenient choice in Beirut to Phoenicia or Sheraton.
Hotels are very expensive in the town.
