Hotel booked by my company for 1 night. Room was spacious but sparsely furnished and not very clean ( including bed sheets). When showering, the drain gave an awful smell that stayed for a long time. No internet in the room ( but free internet in lobby working well). Breakfast included very poor and breakfast room very dirty ( both... More

I stayed in Marble towers just out of convenience, it's location is perfect with full access to important places in Beirut and it's prices are also affordable. In fact I found previous reviews from Trip advisor very helpful to select among the rooms,so make sure to stay on the 6th-8th floors as they are the newly constructed rooms, relatively better...

While touring Lebanon I made this hotel as my base in Beirut - mainly for its location in the Beirut's hamra district. Though very old and small, the hotel staff was very courteous and helpful. From the day of my online booking till the last day it was a balanced experience. Even the wi-fi internet facility was decent. Would recommend... More

The best trait of this hotel was its location. It is in the heart of the Hamra district. It is close to AUB. You can even walk to the Corniche if you are a walkable sort. It is right across the street from a mini market and a great coffee shop (Gloria Jean's). Many eating places around the area. Breakfast... More

4 stars for a backpacker hostel; 1 star for a $100/night hotel. We only booked this place because everywhere else was booked, but we moved out immediately after we found something better. For $20 more, we were in posh digs a mere block away, so the Marble Tower has absolutely no excuse for charging so much for such a crappy... More

It's my own fault for not reading the Trip Advisor reviews before booking into the Marble Tower. It was as bad as they said, if not worse because my door wouldn't lock. I moved out to another place that was similar price but 5x better.

Other reviews are spot on--this place is gross and not recommended. I don't care how good a deal you find on it, SPEND A BIT MORE & STAY SOMEWHERE ELSE. All the reviews about the salty water in the showers & sinks are 100% true. It was disgusting. Management tells you "all hotels in Beirut are like this"--uh, no they're... More
