“Ideal location, good value for money”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

We selected the hotel due to the reputation it carries in dubai and the location. We weren't disappointed on both counts. Perhaps more can be done to improve service. There were Instances like towels left on floor and mugs left uncleaned even after housekeeping visit, 2 requests for an adapter not addressed, empty minibar throughout our stay and had to wait long to get new wifi password. Despite all this, a 100 dollar price tag for a central location in a clean premises was worth it. I hope mentioning these points help management improve standards further.

Room Tip: There's no gym and no rooms with view due to construction all around

Very Good Hotel in the heart of Beirut. I stayed there for 1 month on a Business Trip. Travelling Again for a month.
Food was little monotonous as I got bored eating the same food for 30 days. Not a lot of variety. Hope this time the food has more variety :):)
Would recomend this hotel to everyone.
Also I would have loved if they has a pool and a fitness center !!!!

Room Tip: Higher Floors have good scenic view :)

Ten out of ten for good clean comfortable room. The decor the comfortable bed made my stay enjoyable. In particular I liked the quiet air conditioning, free wifi in lobby/bar/spotlessly clean rooms/complimentory tea-coffee in rooms and overall concern that your stay was to be a happy one.
I would congratulate the reception staff and bar staff for their hospitality, politeness at all times. I would ask the management to note 'your staff are a credit to your hotel'

I would stay again and i liked its location which was easy to get to Hamra and East Beirut.

Room Tip: All rooms are good

I stayed at the Ramada Beirut Downtown hotel for only 1 night, arriving late in the evening and checking out the next day. I had booked an executive room for $120 (special offer on booking.com compared to the list price on the hotel's website which was $286).

The check-in was quick, the staff accepted very kindly to offer me a late checkout till 3pm and being already 11pm I ordered room service which arrived to my room within 15 minutes and was very tasty. The room I had (executive) was exactly as it appears in photos and there are many 5-star hotels which are far more basic.

The breakfast was not the best I ever had but was very decent.

The hotel is ideally located for business and shopping as well. When I checked out I had 2 hrs before having to get to the airport and the staff at the reception kindly kept my luggage to allow me to go for a walk and quick shopping downtown and had a taxi for me right when I ordered it. Quite importantly when the taxi is called from the hotel it charges appropriately (paid $60 to get from airport to hotel with a taxi-pirate and only $30 for the taxi that the hotel arranged for me to get me to the airport from the hotel).

Only downsides is nearby construction and noise, limited Wi-Fi (they give you 100MB and need to pay extra for more capacity) and weak telephone signal in my room (did not have 3G).

My overall feeling is very positive and I would recommend this hotel for anyone staying in Beirut, especially if they can get a good dead like the one I got on booking.com

Close to the city centre and places to be visited, service is of a great quality and promptness, optimum price/quality. If you do not mind 100$ per night is your choice, breakfast is paid separately and the quality is good, you can also call for an expresso. There is a site construction building right now going on but there is no noise during the night time.

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...
