The Mayflower Hotel
Ranked #41 of 114 Hotels in Beirut
Reviewed June 22, 2014

Clearly has had better days. Communal areas and room smelt like old cigarettes and everything slightly dirty as a result. Room was ok and breakfast was quite good and staff allowed us to get a few things 20mins before the breakfast was due to start. Very small pool on roof not really worth it.

We loved the location just off buzzing Al Hamra street. Breakfast offered was nice to kick start the day. We could walk anywhere, to Verdun, Solidaire, Corniche, Raouche... Reception desk were helpful with getting a car to take us anywhere but not so much with reservations. Considering the price paid, you've got yourself a great deal!

Small hotel, well located just off Hamra Street. Rooms are small, bathroom compact but with all amenities. The age shows in the overall setup including the minibar that is sealed to ensure no one claims that things were not there. No water placed in the room was really annoying. Breakfast provided was again basic, though the manager did offer a variety of coffee.There is a bar which again shows its age both in its decor and clients.
Its main convenience lies in its access to Hamra, the sea at a walking distance and decent prices.

The location for the hotel is ideal and the rooms are clean, but otherwise it is a thoroughly average hotel. All rooms are smoking and our room smelled terribly of smoke. If you're from the region and used to that it's probably not a big deal, but as a nonsmoker it's definitely something that bothers me when I travel. The breakfast is included and is ok. I think there are nicer hotels in Hamra for about the same price, but the staff is helpful and the rooms are clean. We were in the hotel to sleep only, so it was a fine choice for our stay. If you're looking for leisure time in the hotel, plan to stay elsewhere.

Lovely hotel in the heart of Caracas, Beirut, in the immediate vicinity of Hamra Street. 10 min walk to the sea and in the immediate neighbourhood of restaurants and shops.
Provides airport pickup and transportation. Breakfast has good variety served by friendly staff. The Duke of Wellington bar provides comfortable relaxation in a pleasant pub atmosphere.
The room I occupied on the 2nd floor was superbly clean, minibar well-stocked, flatscreen TV and free WiFi worked well although the rich selection of nearly 300 TV channels consists to 99% of Arabic stations (there is a French channel, BBC, CNN, Al Jazeera) and on some of channels you find the occasional English movie. Bed was very comfortable, A/C working smoothly and quietly. European 2-pin electric plugs.
Bathroom clean and equipped with usual selection of cosmetics and hairdryer.
Reception area inviting and receptionists very friendly and helpful. Have to come back to Beirut in a week and have already booked :) Good value for money in this category.
