The Gefinor Rotana has the best staff of any hotel I have ever stayed in. The front desk staff, doormen, and cleaning team treated me like family! They sincerely care about their guests and work hard to provide the highest quality experience. I lived in the long-term stay area of the hotel for 2 months and did not have a single problem (was also a solo female traveler). My room was very clean and had a balcony. The hotel has a beautiful garden courtyard as well as a gym and rooftop infinity pool with some of the best views in Beirut. Unfortunately I did not eat much at the hotel, but the Lebanese mezza was delicious. They also have excellent argileh. Loved the location--it only takes 10-15 minutes to walk to AUB, Hamra Street, and the corniche, and there are plenty of stores, bars, and restaurants in the area. 100% recommend the Gefinor Rotana to anyone visiting Beirut. Can't wait to go back. 6-star stay!

The hotel is a good property, in relation to the area and other hotels. Also good location not too close to traffic Hamra Str. and close enough to the sea cornice. Unfortunately the organization of the services was not up to the 4 Stars. First of all, breakfast at 6.30am was never ready, the rather careless waiters forgot cutlery in the buffet over the always warm age coffee, there was plenty but still the exact same things for all my stay of 10 days. The rooms are good but were arranged late in the afternoon and on several occasions per day, one day it was not even done. In the swimming pool, on the top floor, there was always very loud music, which prevented a minimum of relaxation, it seemed to me more a benefit for the staff than a careful service. The staff of the reception gas bene very kindley.

I stayed at the Gefinor Rotana hotel for eight nights in March and April of 2022. While the hotel is very nice, the hotel staff were even better, exalting my wife and me at every opportunity. I truly felt like an honored guest while staying here.

My last stay at the Gefinor Rotana Hotel was in October 2020 as with the COVID – 19 pandemic I had literally no chance to stay in Lebanon. The restrictions in entering Lebanon have been eased, somewhat, and so last week I decided to book a stay at my favorite hotel in all of Lebanon! I had always considered this Gefinor Rotana Hotel my “home-away-from-home” and I soon rediscovered the reason why I felt this strongly for this particular hotel. Simply driving up to the front entrance of the hotel and as I was getting out of the car the doorman said: “Welcome back Mr. Webber”, I got into the Lobby and then these greetings were more numerous: “Great to See you Mr. Webber and “”It has been a long time Mr. Webber”; etc. There was a very nice room upgrade waiting for me at the Front Desk and, as always, the check-in process was fast and professional. Our suite was on the 15th floor and the view of Beirut from the suites balcony was fantastic. And when the bell man brought up our suitcases his first words were: “Welcome back Mr. Webber”. This particular staff member has been with the Gefinor for the past seventeen years! We enjoyed an early dinner down in the hotels Olive Garden Restaurant and Terrace. Then my wife and I had a great night’s sleep, as we had an early flight the next morning. All in all this stay ranks as one of our best not only from the friendly attitude of the staff and management team, but in having a very nice dinner and a restful sleep. I highly recommend the five stars Gefinor Rotana property, you will not be sorry…trust me!

We visited the pool with friends whilst staying in Beirut. Although we didn't stay in the hotel itself, the service was wonderful and the drinks great. Would definitely visit again if I ever find myself in Beirut!

My main-stay-hotel in Beirut has been and will always be the Gefinor Rotana Hotel located in the Hamara District of Beirut. I have not stayed in the Gefinor Rotana for many, many months due to the travel restraints caused by the Corona Virus Pandemic. On our return to Beirut from a great ten day vacation in Turkey I decided for my wife and I to spend at least one-night at the: Gefinor Rotana Hotel. This was a very wise decision as the hotel arranged for a doctor the next morning to perform our fourth CPR Corona Test as well as a very professional Airport collection. We found immediately that the hotel was taking extreme Corona Virus precautions as over the previous two days Beirut had experienced another major number of reported Corona Cases! The service at the Gefinor Rotana Hotel was tops as always from the check-in to our check out. We discovered that once again we were given a room upgrade and of course with a sea view and balcony room. We only stayed one night and that was way too short of a stay, but my wife wanted to return back to Damascus as soon as our CPR Test was completed. We had breakfast, which was via their excellent Room Service. The breakfast was served in plastic containers and was quite good. I believe that their traditionally fantastic Breakfast Buffet has been suspended due again to the Corona Virus. Once again if you find yourself in Beirut Lebanon, you must stay at the Gefinor Rotana Hotel, you will not be disappointed…trust me…
