Very helpful and friendly staff. Close to the Corniche sea front. Some local maps / leaflets would have been useful. Room tended to be cleaned late in the day unless specifically requested otherwise. Excellent breakfast.

I had a wonderful stay and was very impressed with the service for the cost. They helped me navigate an international trip and arranged my travel back to the airport without my asking. Breakfast was fabulous! The location was ideal for me, as it was 10 minutes walking from the universities where I needed to do business, several good restaurants and the Hamra, as well as the seaside. This will be a repeat business when next I am in Beirut.

This was my fifth year staying at this hotel, and it has been consistently excellent. The location is safe and is close to American University of Beirut. The cuisine features Lebanese opportunities for breakfast and dinner. Great staff and rooms.

I enjoyed my stay in gefinor rotana, the location was more than perfect a few steps away from my daily destination, the front desk staff were amazing and always helpful. However the room service culinary experience was not at all as expected would qualify it as mediocre-average. Overall my stay and my experience was enjoyable I would recommend anyone who need to be in Hamra to stay at gefinor

Excellent hotel all round. I will recommend it highly. Conveniently located. Top marks for staff friendliness. Excellent overall cleanliness in hotel, particularly guest rooms. Quiet hallways, deliciously comfortable beds and pillows ensure restful sleep. Delicious breakfast and lunch buffets (I did not eat dinners there). Great value for money.

Everything was very good . The staff was friendly, only first day I have problem with my condition but you straff work on it and imidiatly evverything was again working . Thank you very much , I will stay at your hotel again

Great Hotel with a good location in Hamra, Beirut. They have really good food services breakfast, lunch etc.. The interior design is fascinating, good reception good staff.. It's great for business meetings they have lots of meeting rooms and big halls for a bigger event !

Very friendly and accomodating staff made my stay at this nice hotel a pleasant first visit to Beirut. The room was large and clean and the restaurant serving a comprehensive breakfast buffet as well as delicious meals.

My last stay at the Rotana Gefinor Hotel in Beirut was arranged because I had two doctor’s appointments at the near by American University Hospital Medical Center. The walking distance between the hotel and my appointments was about 4 minutes! The Rotana Gefinor Hotel in Beirut is still the top Hotel Property in all of Beirut, especially if you are planning on visiting the AUHMC! When I drove up to the entrance and then checked in I found that the hospitality of all employees made my wife and I feel like returning valued guests! Our luggage was handled in a quick and professional manner as well as the check in process at the Front Desk! We did receive a suite up grade which was a suite with a city view and balcony. It was also on their Club Floor or 14th floor. Unfortunately the Club Lounge did not meet our expectations as it was never manned nor did it have a variety of appetizers’ or even a simple breakfast! Not like the other leading hotel brands that we stay in. Before I left our home on our way to Beirut I told my wife that we should go to a seafood restaurant as I do miss fresh seafood. For our luck the hotel’s restaurant was having their famous Seafood Buffets that night! We had a cocktail in the hotel’s cozy lounge/bar and then we enjoyed a marvelous Seafood Buffet at the: XX restaurant. We were not disappointed! I strongly suggest that if you are in Beirut either on business or pleasure you must try to stay at the Rotana Gefinor Hotel in Beirut…you will not be disappointed!

This was one of a series of visits which I make each year in connection with the AUB Board meetings. The Gefinor Rotana was as welcoming and efficient an operation as ever. It is highly convenient to the AUB Medical Center and college campus.
