Warwick Palm Beach Hotel
Ranked #53 of 116 Hotels in Beirut
Reviewed August 16, 2012

I stayed at this hotel for 10 days in Aug 2012. It is true that the hotel seemed a little older and run-down; but that sort of stuff does not bother me. I do wish they would have picked up the paint drop cloths every night instead of leave them on the ground.

The room was fine, and despite being on the second floor, I did not have any problem with noise from the streets and slept easily. Cleanliness was not an issue, and every day my room and bathroom was fully restocked with soaps and lotions and sometimes I even got a few chocolates on my pillow.

Breakfast was a huge buffet of many options, though it was the same options the entire 10 days I was there. The last two days I just didn't care for the breakfast buffet much because I was so tired of the food.

The two best things about this hotel are the location, pretty central to both east and west Beirut, as well as close to the water-front. I appreciated its central location I set out equally in both directions to explore. The second great thing was the pool on the roof (though they do close it at 6pm). I loved taking advantage of some rest with a view, a cocktail and a cigarette on days that I returned from exploring the country before 6pm.

The front desk didn't seem very helpful, but that might be a Lebanese culture thing. I couldn't figure that out.

I spent 2 night here while on a business trip. The hotel is located right on the waterfront across the street from the new marina area which is a good place to walk with plenty of places to eat or shop. However, the hotel building is quite old and desperately in need of renovation. The furnishings in the rooms are clean but look like they are from the 1970's. My only complaint about the room was they made u the bed with only heavy duvet - no top sheet. I prefer a clean top sheet against my body.

They do charge a very high rate for wifi access. In this day and age that is like charging extra for towels or soap - it should just be part of the room. How hard is it to install a router on each floor? Plus I needed a converter plug to use the power and that was another charge rather than a service provided.

They have a breakfast buffet compleat with half cooked runny scambled eggs and cold crepes.

At best this hotel is somewhere between 2 & 3 stars only.

Room Tip: do not get a room on a high floor in front or you will hear the boom/boom from the rooftop bar very...

Nice hotel overall, nice space on the terrace and decent rooms although a bit noisy and best with see view (otherwise you have a view on buildings in ruins...) -- but i made the mistake to leave some money inside my bag in the room and it was stolen. There is a safe in the rooms: use it!

Stayed here for 4 nights. The roof top bar and the location are pretty much the highlights of the hotel. I wasn't very impressed by the pool area as its a bit dated and the pool itself is quite small. The bar however has fantastic views especially around sunset. My main gripe is that this hotel charges quite exorbitant internet rates and doesn't provide basics such as water and coffee in the rooms. And as mentioned in some reviews, the bed has some sort of a plastic cover underneath the bed sheets which I found uncomfortable. Breakfast was quite satisfactory and offers a range of different continental and Lebanese items. Rooms on the higher floors offer a sea side view which means you can see the sea on 45 degree angle. We had a room on the fifth floor which was quite nice. Hotel also provides taxi services for $10 to most locations in Beirut. You could also get a taxi outside the hotel for about LL10,00 ($6.66) instead. I would probably stay here again as I think the hotel offers good value at this price.

Room Tip: HIgher Floors offer better views.

This an entirely predictable middle eastern luxury business hotel- comfy bed, marble and gilt bathroom, slightly naff hotel decor, good Arabic buffet breakfast, immaculately clean and charming staff. What makes it better than the average in the price bracket is the roof bar- right by the sea wall, the hotel offers spectacular views over the sea and across Beirut. The swimming pool itself is in a couple of levels with a sort of waterfall between, and has loungers all round it. At night, it becomes one of those hip and decadent, fin-de-siècle haunts the guidebooks talk about- Beirut's beautiful drink, lounge and, later, frolic in the pool. Huge amounts of fun.

The bar is owned by someone different to the hotel (long story, the concierge will explain if you ask) so you can't charge drinks to your room- take cash. And that means to get into the bar later you need to wear something respectable

Incidentally, the fish restaurant opposite looks cheesy but is very good.

Room Tip: All very similar- only difference is the colour of the marble in the bathroom

Been there for just one night.
The hotel is very nice 'old style' art-deco looking. Staff is very friendly.
Room are spacious with extended amenities. Comfort of the beds is average.
Internet (extra) working well. Good selection of TV programs including pay channels (especially sports channels).
Just little bit noisy since the hotel in on the Corniche and if you have a room at lower floors you will ear the traffic (and its Beirut ...!).

Room Tip: Lower floors are little bit noisy because of the traffic.
