“Quite a pleasant stay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

A couple of things i do like to point out.. location wise really nice. The staff are really friendly and the interior of the hotels are really good. They do provide you with almost all the services that you like. The exterior and the view from the hotel is not that great. It is quite clean and the room service does a good job.
The hotel does have a nice bar and a restaurant. The morning buffet was ok nothing great but yes they do serve a lot of Lebanese food.
Smoking rooms are very limited you need to book in advance. The hotel is just 15 minutes from the airport and 2 min to one of the best shopping areas in beirut and the souk. Location wise i'd give it a thumbs up.

Room Tip: Try to get the rooms away from the construction site if you are travelling anytime in the near futur...

Very handy location, walk to Beirut Souk Mall, plus Zaytoun Bay. Only suggestion would be for them to have a couple of computers available for guest use. A little noisy due to construction next door. Good view from our 11th floor room of the sea and city.

Room Tip: Choose an Exec Room, quite spacious

Very close to the BIEL trade fair, this hotel has excellent rooms which are are very clean. I had good and bad experiences with the staff, but overall they were friendly and helpful.

It is a pity that the sleep quality was not so good due to some construction work next to the hotel and maintenance in the elevators as well.

Breakfast was ok, but it was lacking fruit.

I visited Ramada in August with a friend of mine. The hotel is having very good location in downtown, staff are very helpful and friendly - sometimes exceeding the expectations. The room was quite good.. There are some points i didn't like too much :
- Maintenance work being done close to the hotel that is very noisy all the morning
- The curtains of the balcony are made in a way that you cannot keep it fully open, personally i like natural sunlight and i coudn't have this bevause of the curtains
- TV channels are not interesting
- Only 1 chair in the balcony - there should be 2 chairs

Stayed August 2012, traveled with friends

This hotel is very good and confortable but the best of is the location. You an go walking to BIEL (to the trade fair), go walking to the Marine or even to shopping area, where you can also find good restaurants.
You have to pay to have internet connection on the room but it is free to use on the reception.
The breakfast is also good and we didnt have problem with the cleaness.

A friend had booked this hotel for us
Located in the newly rebuilt area of Downtown is in a good spot for the marina bars & restaurants
Good quality shopping is 10 mins walk and the bar and cafe area of Jemmayzeh is a couple of mins in a taxi
The hotel itself had boutique feel with a cute reception area
Room & shower was average size, The very effective air conditioning was the most quiet Ive encountered

Currently the whole area is being developed so some construction noise is audible during the weekdays, however the double glazed balcony doors did a good job. and we slept very well

Good value & Recommended

Room Tip: pot luck, but from other guests that I spoke to; they were all happy with their rooms
