Mayflower Hotel4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Mayflower hotel is located in an old building on a very busy and narrow road, mostly it’s a traffic jam in rush hours, because it is located in down town near most famous Al-Hamra Street it is congested area. Rooms are with balcony, surrounded by higher buildings, Rooms are small in the size but comes with all facilities in a compact space, bath rooms are smaller and wash basin fixed in room, not in bath room, it is little disappointed. Floor carpet was old too, they provide Iron and ironing table on request free of charge. The best thing I like about the hotel is staff behavior, friendly and polite. Breakfast with lot of variety and good quality. Hardly 02 minute walk to Al Hamra, and you get many groceries, bars and restaurants is vicinity, and a super market (daily needs) just a minute walk from hotel, public transport is easily available and you get many taxis waiting outside the main entrance every time. Generally hotel is all right if you are not expecting luxury, it is a medium cost hotel which enjoys a convenient location and gives easy access to other areas of city. American University of Beirut is hardly 10 – 15 minute walk away. We were there on 14 Sep 2017
Location is very good, in the centre of Hamra, close to many restaurants and shops. Staff were very friendly. Room was neat and clean with all basic amenities. Breakfast was ok. Overall good value for money.
For the price that you pay... approximately £30-40 a night, you can't complain. The rooms are basic but clean. People have said that the decor is outdated but what to you expect for that price. Staff are friendly and rooms are clean, that's the main thing. Location is good as you are between hamra and bliss street. It's good value for central Beirut and I would recommend it.
Only reason to checkin here is relatively cheap in this lively location. 1- Extremely rude staff. We arrived a couple of hours early and waited in the lobby. When we asked again 30 mins before check-in time, we received this rude answer from reception: "Excuse me! It is YOUR FAULT you arrived early. We will let you know the room is ready." This is an example of the tone and service level we have been treated with throughout the stay. 2- The valet service is awful. If you have a car you need it since it is a very busy area. They repeatedly played with the car settings, they had the car scratched twice, and the rear parking sensor was bumped and partially fell out of place. 3- A truck comes to fill the water tank every couple of days at 2 am!! The pump's sound is so loud you cannot sleep through the process. 4- Most importantly, the last straw for me was the ordeal I had to go though to get my early checkout refund, which is part of the policy (attached). I called hotels.com 3 times about it, and they were always told the hotel did not authorize the refund. I had to call the hotel directly, pay a visit in person, and write two emails to get a positive (or any) answer after 2 weeks. They just kept delaying the issue and not replying to me until hotels.com "negotiated" with them, whatever that means. Simply, I almost lost hope in getting my refund. There was no transparency in the refund process and one wonders why it took so many attempts to communicate to get any response...
This hotel is a 1930's classic, the main areas just ooze the feel of the period. Have cooling drinks by the roof top pool. It's in the middle of the lively bustling Al Hamra area which is shopping hub for the city and well placed for access to the corniche.
Service is rather bad. The bar in the basement is excellent though. Highly reccomended especially during happy hours. Breakfast so and so. Price is average. They could improve room cleaning. Many rooms need refurbishment.
This was our first port of call in Lebanon and we were very pleased with the choice. The decor is a bit 'vintage' but everything in good order and well serviced. The staff were very friendly and helpful and it is a good location for wanderings around Hamra, to the sea front and AUB. Breakfast is a nice enough with lots of fresh fruit too, but the real jewel in the crown is the roof top pool. It's small but great to cool off after a busy Beirut day and make the most of the beautiful weather.
I always love the atmosphere vaguely "Seventies" of the Mayflower and every time I do choose it again. Located in the very heart of Beirut - Hamra - offers spotless clean rooms, handsome breakfasts. Staff personel are friendly and helpful, good rates!
Rooms are clean and in good condition, located in the centre of Hamra close to many restaurants and shops as well as the American University of Beirut. Staff were very friendly. Room service/requests are very slow and the food selection at breakfast is very meagre
The hotel is only a couple of mins walk from the main hamra street making it good value for money. There is also a Coop supermarket a minute walk from the hotel. The breakfast is generous and tasy. The rooms are clean and tidy. The staff (porter, cleaning and reception) are all friendly and very helpful. Taxi tip: you can always take the tourist taxis hanging outside the hotel but they tend to charge more. If you walk on the main hamra street for a minute or so, stop a taxi from there and it'll cost you less. The taxis outside the hotel will be in better condition though.
