“A great value for money hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

The staff were very friendly , the hotel is clean , and reasonably furnished .
The location is great as well .the gym is very poor .the breakfast buffet is very rich and tasty .
The staff are respectful and they treat nicely not in harassing way to get a tip as I have seen in other Lebanese hotel .

I stayed in this hotel for 2 days only on a short trip between traveling to two different countries and I was very specific in my selection due to my short stay. I wanted a place where I could use the internet and get a free shuttle from and to the airport. I found them waiting for me when I arrived which was a good thing but unfortunately, the internet wasn´t working on the first day of arrival, it was working though on the second day. However, when I checked out, they charged me $10 for internet which I didn´t like at all! I don't like to be told it's free and then be charged $10!! It's not about the $10 but about the principle! Don't say "free" and then "charge people for it! This experience would definitely make me think twice before I go again to this place.

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you so much for taking your time to review our hotel.

We apologize for the inconvenience caused from our side concerning the internet charges, as in the hotel, we have two different internet modules, 1- free internet with normal speed and the 2nd is with high speed internet, charged US$10 per day.

Hope that you will reconsider our hotel the next time you visit Beirut, as you rated us as very good in the other aspects.

Best Regards,

I was in Lancaster hotel from 7-11/06/2013 and it was really wonderful, everyone was attending nicely, I got all facilities and services even the ones not provided by the hotel such as taxis, restaurants bookings and general enquiries, reception staff were too nice and helpful even room service as well .. In short I liked and truly recommend it.

I was shocked by the cleanliness and the quality of the room.. The hotel exceeded my expectations by far (you have to try the restaurant)... I highly recommend this hotel for people planning to go to beirut for a business trip for its convenience... However, the hotel management should re-look into the room rates as they are slightly high against competition...

Overall, it was amazing!!!

I stayed with my husband last month at the lancaster hotel, beirut, lebanon, it was a real one of a kind, hotel is still new, breakfast is so good, i was really surprised to find a heart cake shape with the compliments of the hotel, (it seems Kareem the receptionist knew that it was our anniversary when he book us for dinner the night we checked in)
For sure i will come back.

The hotel is well located , has decent sized rooms and the breakfast is good though not lavish. Its almost on the Cornish very near to the Pigeon Rocks - Beirut moreover is not a city to stay in a hotel the best of the city can be enjoyed only if one gets out and explore . For an explorers attitude you just need a good night's sleep that the hotel is capable of offering . Not a bad choice will visit again.
