“Good choice”
Reviewed February 1, 2012

We had two nights here for the first part of a Lebanon trip. We wanted a nice hotel in a good location and thats exactly what you get. A good standard and a great location for shops, bars and restaurants.
Its a little expensive compared to five star hotels in other cities but that seems more related to the accomodation costs in Lebanon.

Check in was very good, friendly and efficient
The rooms are not big but they are nicely furnished with a/c, large flat tv, mini bar and tea making.

There is a roof top leisure area with sauna, steam, gym and a small heated outdoor pool that looks out to sea. A nice place to sit if the weather is good.

The bar and reception area is modern and a nice place to sit. There is also an outdoor terrace to sit and have a drink when the sun is shining!

Breakfast was very good. There is a wide self service selection and you can have eggs cooked to order. Coffee and juice is served at the table.

The staff were all very helpful and professional in all parts of the hotel

Dear Guest,

Thank you for posting your review and sharing your nice comments about our hotel and location.

I am glad to learn that your check in was very good and you found our staff friendly and efficient.

Regarding our prices, we do our best to keep them in line with other five star hotels in Beirut to ensure we deliver the best value for money. Our rates do vary according to season and day of the week, so better deals can be found on our website if your dates are flexible for a future stay with us.

I am very glad to know that you enjoyed the view from the roof top and all the facilities available there and that you also enjoyed the breakfast at our newly renovated restaurant.


Your nice comments about our staff were shared with all the team members.

We look forward to welcoming you again soon to the Gefinor Rotana Beirut.

Best Regards,


Mark Timbrell
General Manager
