Stay here regularly on business - very central location with great bars and restaurants all round. Staff and accommodation excellent - only complaint is wifi can be slow in evenings - an essential requirement when away from family. Otherwise would recommend.

If you are looking for a good, standard sort of hotel for a work trip then this will suit you perfectly well. The rooms are a little dated, but are clean and big (I got upgraded to a suite which was really big). My room had views across to the Med which was an added bonus. The rest of the... More

The Gefinor Rotana is conveniently located near the American University Beirut campus, yet not far from the mid town shops. The staff are professional and respond quickly to your needs. The hotel is clean,well run , attractive,and the food. (especially the buffet breakfast ) is delicious. Enjoyed my stay a lot.

Good hotel, well-located in the Hamra shopping district. A short walk from downtown, the marina and the upmarket souk area too. Hotel facilities are good, gym is fine for a hotel, and right next to the pool.
