Royal Garden Hotel
Ranked #97 of 114 Hotels in Beirut
Reviewed February 6, 2010

It was a drizzly mid afternoon in Beyrut and I was looking for a place to stay the night as I could'nt make it back to Damascus. While walking, I spotted this hotel...from the exterior it looked pretty drab..However, I decided to give it a look, since it's situated right smack in quite a lively street intersection. I entered, and the receptionists, one guy and a lady greeted me with smiley faces. I asked if there is any room, and they said YES! So I asked how much..it was US$77 for a room with a double bed, inclusive of breakfast. It was actually way off my budget, but I decided to give the room a look. The guy receptionist brought me to Room 531 and it is so beautiful...In less than 2 minutes, I made up my mind that I shall stay the night. So I did...and I liked it and it was well worth it. Everything in the room was new as the room was newly renovated. Apart from some drilling sound, (it wasnt too much of a bother cos it stopped after 5pm), I would definitely recommend this hotel to travellers...

I recently had a business trip to Beirut, Lebanon ans my stay was at The Royal Garden. Rooms were very nice looking and clean. Stayed before at the same hotel but got to know that is has been managed by a new owner which i also had the chance to meet and name is Mr. Ramzi Yateem. He gave me the heads up about future plans of the hotel which seems at the look of a five star hotel. i would really recommend friends and any that person to stay at this hotel.

While this hotel does look a bit shabby from the outside, it's actually quite nice. The rooms are pretty good with a fridge, TV and air conditioning. The carpets aren't too clean, but it's not like you're sleeping on the floor. This isn't a hotel that will impress the avid traveler.

This hotel is great if you're on a budget and just need a comfortable bed and a place where you can keep your luggage while you're out on the town (which is usually the case when you're in Beirut)

The hotel must be rated 1 star, or even not a star
The location of the hotel is in the middle of old rotten buildings and car noises
The cleanness of the of hotel is un-believable dirty, housekeeping just come in to tide up the bed and leave
Room size is extremely small, toilets are dirty by all mean of word dirty
Facilities of the hotel, such as pool, bar, conference room, etc is out of service since the civil war (I took few pictures)
Service is really bad, since they have only on old age man, who serves the room, which barley can get you anything
Overall the hotel is a disaster, which don’t worth a piney
