Ramada Beirut Downtown

Reviewed 18 August 2013

My husband and I spent 5 nights in August at the Ramada Downtown. Our room was spacious; the bed comfy; and the bathroom new and well-designed. Most of the staff spoke English and were very helpful.

We were visiting a family member who works in Beirut and the downtown location was central for all that we did. The hotel is difficult to find because it's stacked behind a construction site. But once you locate it, it's easy walking distance to most downtown attractions.

My husband and I stayed at the Ramada Downtown last week. We were absolutely delighted with the hotel. Our room was beautifully clean and very comfortable. I had read the comments about it being noisy and was a bit nervous but it was very quiet with no more noise than you would expect in a large city. There is construction work surrounding the hotel but it did not disturb us at all.
Every member of staff we came in contact with was friendly,polite and very efficient. The location is wonderful.
Very good value for money. We will definitely choose to stay here again.

Stayed: July 2013, travelled as a couple

we spent a week there from 28th of June 2013.
The hotel is very weel located walking distance from Downtown solidaire 10 mins and zeituna bay (15 mins) also it's near to kidz mondo if you have a kid and want to spend day for kids activities.

The staff is very helpful and informative, we once asked them about the touristic places and they advised us with a special agency that gave us a very good price for the tour Jeitta, Byblos and Harissa.

The staff is very keen for your satisfaction and very much customer oriented.

We faced a bit difficulty with the room keys since it didn't work couple of times but as soon as we inform the reception they quickly came top open it for us

When we arrived we found complimentary brownies and the day before our departure we found a huge dish of fruits and biscuits, that was really a nice gesture.

If we are to go Lebanon again, we will probably stay there

Just came back from a nightmare at Ramada, absolute lack of sleep!! They are building a hotel literally two meters away from the rooms, from 7 am onwards!!! Not only don’t they tell you about it, when you ask for a quiet room, they assure you it is!! They should notify customers in advance, and if there is no other option, offer earplugs and free wifi or other compliment as an apology. Some investment in sun blocking blinds would also be advisable. The service was a disgrace, couldn’t get a smile out of a single employee... Avoid eating in the restaurant, sandwiches take 40 minutes to arrive. And to make things even better, my bathroom stank 24/7. Only stay at Ramada if you have absolutely no other option, complete waste of money.

Room Tip: Just try not to stay here...

I regret to notice that your overall rating was not satisfactory and that our services were not up to your expectations.

I have read your remarks with regards to the noise coming from the construction sites around us; I do apologize and I have taken into consideration the ear-plug service. We have already advised our purchasing department to buy them; it will available in rooms in rooms in a few weeks.

I am also pleased to advise you that we will be launching free internet in rooms in few months, we are under process of testing the speed and technical issues.

With regards to your comment on the services in our restaurants and the bathroom, I would be grateful if you could send me a mail with some more details [ room number, date of stay, ect..] that I can go through a full investigation- on my following address: ymaalouf@ramadalebanon.com

The hotel is a walking distance from downtown Beirut and the area developed by Solidere project, yet it is in a quiet neighborhood. It lacks view as most of the rooms face a building which looks being under construction for some time. The rooms are comfortable but not wide enough. Personnel helpful but sometimes forgetful. Special taxi is available outside almost all the time.
