“Great location, average hotel”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

The location is really great, right in the middle of Hamra Street. Lots of shopping, restaurants etc nearby, and buzzing nightlife.

Breakfast is good, with lots of yummy Lebanese treats on offer.

The rooms are really average. They're very clean and comfortable, but not modern.

Internet access is really expensive! They really need to get with the times there.

Overall a good hotel to stay in Beirut - it's such a happening city that you won't spend much time in your hotel anyway!

This place is close to everything in teh middle of Hamra street. You can stroll down the street for an amazing meal or shopping. Taxis are always in the area.
At night, there are many lounges buzzing with the university crowds & offer very nice meals.
A 5 minute walk & you're at the corniche (seafront promenade).
The staff is extremly eager to please & I had booked a regular room & got a free upgrade on check in to a captain's suite with free Wifi & breakfast (-:
I highly recommend this hotel as it is very agressively priced, clean & in the middle of the action.

Room Tip: Try to book a seaview room. Even though it is not directly on the sea, the view is much nicer than c...

Again, a pleasant stay in this great hotel. This time, service was a bit disappointing (housekeeping). Maybe due to lack of booking in the Winter months, too little staff. Internet access expensive and clumsy.
Excellent cuisine - a lot of local delicacies to try from.
Plenty of life around the hotel, still very much recommendable - but improve the service levels.

Room Tip: Try to get sea view and high floors

This hotel has some excellent sa views, be sure to request a room on an upper floor. Club lounge on 19th floor is quite small and could be bigger. Having to pay 20 dollars per ay for internet is disappointing. Hotel is lcated right on oe of Beirut's main streets with penty of shops and cafe's close by. Rooms are clean and well kept. Staff are very polite. Busy road directly outside making valet parking or drop off by taxi a challenge as hotel does not have a drop off area.

Good hotel located in the congested by-lanes of the Beirut. This might not be the best of Crown Plaza properties in the world but, still it’s not bad from an overall value proposition. Rooms are small and a bit outdated but it’s the Lebanese customer service and attitude which overpowers all these small weaknesses in any property. Good breakfast spread and decent room service options. Wonder why these guys close the restaurants completely for in room guests when there are private parties being hosted in those restaurants. I guess the hotel should have separate venues for these private parties and keep restaurant open for room guests. Nice internet speeds.
