The hotel is perfect for business trips. Its location is very convenient and in a walking distance from great restaurants and bars. The WiFi is perfect, the breakfast can be improved with more diet options and the rooms spacious and very clean. There is also a nice pool and a great well equipped gym. It’s really worthy
An awful hotel that is badly in need of renovation in terms of the building and the service attitude of the staff. We had checked in for four nights but left after one very miserable night. The bedrooms are stuck in some 1070s time-warp, the carpets are thread bare, the bathrooms are unclean with mould spores in the crevices, the taps either trickle or shoot out water so fast you're completely wet in an instant. Sleep? Forget about it, whilst on a higher floor we could hear the sounds of traffic and horns blaring all night, I mean all night - the windows are old (metal), single glazed, and don't close properly. The breakfast offering was poor. I asked the executive chef if he could make some fresh saj for me, he said he didn't know how. The business lounge, to which we had access, was just a couple of tables put together in a space on a high floor. See pictures of the total refreshments available. I advise you to book this place with your eyes fully open.
We selected the venue for a workshop as other departments had used it before and found it generally suitable. Conveniently located in town and within short walking distance to mini shops and restaurants. Conducive conference venue. It was nice to have juice and tea available all the time at a corner table. Left over from coffee breaks were not taken away ( as is the norm in many hotels) but were available in case of hungry participant in need of a bite. Pros-Venue was adequate and located next to dining area thus very convenient . Check in was smooth. Rooms clean and with basic items. Lovely lobby area. Security well taken care off-Take care- CCTVs in the lifts as well. Cons- toilets were difficult to find they are located in main lobby and not in close proximity with conference room. All good after directed by Staff. You need to Carry own shampoo and shower cap . Towels were rough with age, I guess . Resturants Staff polite and efficient but seemed a bit under stress- better not Smile at them lest you cause more stress. Some participants did concerned about not having a view from window as other buildings in neighboring hood. However, all day spent was at workshop, then out in town for recreation and back to sleep so perhaps view was not a big issue And YES, we would choose the hotel again for future workshops
I spent 6 nights at the Radission blu because of the location and price. Its right near Hamra,Downtown Beirut and Zaytouny Bay and the price was very attractive. Check in was quick and easy and gave us infomation on day tours and we were upgraded to the business rooms. The rooms were quite large and the beds very comfortable, we had acess to the business lounge and the attendent was very helpful. The restaurant staff were amazing and quick during breakfast. The fitness centre was amazibg the swimming pool was very peaceful. The only thing that annoyed me was the staff at the door they stood together in a large crowd and was very off putting. Some were just standing there on there phones watching videos. Not good. Other then that we had a great stay in Beirut and the hotel I will return.
I am a regular customer at Radisson Blu series all over the world. It was my first time here in Beirut and these are my list of observations: The likes (as expected in a Radisson Blu hotel): Huge room space, as usual Cleanliness Bathroom Daily room keeping Complementary water every day Card secured elevator The indoor Swimming pool and jacuzzi are well kept and maintained. Good water pressure and air conditioning system. Qibla for Muslims was referred to in every room The dislikes: Location was meaningless, in a narrow street far from see, far from downtown and from Hamra! No room views Breakfast was not that of Radisson Blu, not even of a 5 star one, plain and with no varieties. I did not like it at all. To my shock that one day in the morning swimming pool was occupied by training children with their coaches, their nanies are sitting on the pool waiting for them, hotel guests were allowed to use just a lane of the pool! Hotel personnel seem unhappy and have no patience!
We spent 4 nights here beginning of October and overall had a very good experience. The reception being very helpful at check in and with any questions that we had, room was a good size as we opted for the upgrade to a business room although the view was not good. The staff in the executive lounge were very friendly and welcoming, the wine provided was acceptable although the snacks provided were limited. We had breakfast each morning which had an okay selection but was busy if you happened to be there when the business travellers were down for breakfast. The location is excellent, just a few minutes walk to the Corniche. It also has a very good indoor swimming pool, we did not use the gym so cant comment here. It is not top class but is very good value for money and we would stay here again when we are back in Beirut.
5 night stay, Hotel rooms need overhaul, very poor lighting and no master switch from bedside light switch for lights which was pain. The room was not fully serviced (bins not emptied) I am a carlton member...whatever that meas. Catering, the restaurant evening menu is too heavy not enough light options. Take my advice for better value, experience and service for a light supper walk down the road to the Phoenicia Hotel..Brilliant omelettes etc.
Here are my main concerns with this hotel; I would expect some of these problems at small hotels, but an international brand should have these things sorted to ensure guests get a good night's sleep: 1) No remote control for the AC. Every night I had to get out of bed a few times in the middle of the night to change the temperature. 2) Curtains don't close completely - there is a stopper at the top, leaving a 3 inch gap between the curtains even when "closed," so I was awakened by sunlight at 6:30 am. 3) They turn on elevator music in the hallways starting at around 7 am, which is audible in the rooms and kept me awake when I wanted to sleep in. Otherwise, it's a nice enough hotel. My room did not have any view at all; perhaps some rooms have better. The breakfast was excellent, and the food all around was very good. Staff were friendly and helpful. Wifi was great, which is not a given in Beirut.
I spent 3 days in this hotel. The room was fine but it was not worth what we paid. Breakfast was rich and good, location is fine if you want to walk to down town or to Zaitunay Bay. The staff is friendly and very helpful. It is definitely a hotel for business travellers. As a tourist I would rather go to other nice and lively areas of Beirut such as Gemmayzeh, Mar Mikhael and Hamra.
. I wish there is more big place for breakfast and night life And more possibility for visitors to your guest to have visitors with cars. so they can park with more facilities. And i wish ı can have more discounts for my next visites to your hotel. And more towels always. And a refrigerator in each floor for waterh
