“Central to lots of great shops”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014

This Hotel is in an ideal location in the heart of Hamra, a nice easy stroll to Hamra St where all of the shopping can be done and then relax and have lunch in the Hotel restaurant or up in the rooftop pool, great views and very relaxing. The Hotel staff are very friendly and helpful, well presented and speak English as well as a few other languages.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front are quieter as there is a building going up behind the Hotel.

Being one of the lowest priced hotels in Beirut, I expected something really basic, but I was surprised. Apart from the nearly perfect location in the heart of Hamra, the hotel is very well maintained, and the medium size reception area is elegantly decorated. We stayed in a double room, which was reasonably sized, with a comfortable bed, big wardrobe, and a nice balcony. I loved the fresh smell of the room and the towels every time the room was done.

The restaurant was nothing special, but the breakfast was okay. WIFI was weak, and we were not able to get an iron/ironing board, despite the booklet in the room saying it is available upon request. Our room was facing the street side, and it can be noisy. Air-conditioning was slight weak.

Booking on-line is usually slightly cheaper than booking directly with the hotel.

Unless you like paying more money for the same service, don't use the taxis parked outside the hotel, and definitely don't ask the hotel to get you a taxi. Just walk for 10 yards and you won't even need to waive a taxi, they will waive you!

Room Tip: Double rooms face the street, but twin rooms are on the back.

Mixed thoughts on Midtown Hotel and Suites, Beirut.

Stayed for six nights, and while some aspects of the hotel are very good, others are sub-par. If you're traveling on a tight budget and get a low rate, this could be a perfect choice, but if you're accustomed to any little extras, or super conscientious service, or expect a hotel that provides all the amenities listed and looks like its pictures, this may not be the place for you.

Overall, the location is excellent - right in the heart of the Hamra district.

The staff is friendly and - when not forgetting to address an issue or call you back - quite helpful. I generally liked every employee I came in contact with. The hotel feels secure. And while the rooms are clean - housekeeping is excellent - and the beds and linens very comfortable - the furniture is dated and there are some very rough edges in terms of general upkeep - a firm shutting of the door sent a strip of moulding flying into the hallway - things like that. Easy fixes if the hotel were so inclined.

The breakfast consists of two traditional hot dishes, hard boiled eggs, a large variety of meats, cheeses, yogurt, fresh fruits and vegetables, a traditional salad, two types of bread, three cereal options, preserves, several juices, milk, coffee and tea. Yes, it was the same thing every day, but it was ample, varied enough, and everything was well presented, fresh and delicious.

During my stay, the pool was closed, the bar was closed, the restaurant was only open "if the cook shows up," and the entire room service menu consisted of a burger and fries, or a chicken or beef fajita sandwich. And then again - only available - if the cook shows up. To Midtown's credit - when the cook was there - the sandwich was pretty good.

Some reviewers mentioned an odd smell in the rooms - and I found this too - a bit sewer-gassy. I solved the issue by blocking a drain - when not in use - with a damp towel. This prevented the smell from coming into the room. I believe there are some general plumbing issues with the hotel. One day while showering, the bathroom floor drain backed-up, flooding the bathroom and part of the bedroom. Engineering and housekeeping took care of the issue quickly - no biggie.

There were also numerous power outages during my stay, some lasting several minutes. This caused some inconvenience - a friend was stuck in the elevator for a little while - but besides that incident, the outages were not too much of a hassle. On a note regarding safety though, the door to the electrical room on my floor was left open throughout my stay - not only were exposed wires within reach, the floor to the room was an open grate that dropped the entire height of the building - wide enough for a guest to fall-through if he or she inadvertently stepped into the room.

I can't say I disliked or regret my stay here. In fact, I found the overall experience rather pleasant, though the hotel was certainly not what I expected. And while I might stay here again - having gained an understanding of the place - I'm still not sure if I would recommend it to others, as some things that I found relaxed and even comical, might prove very frustrating to other travelers.

I've stayed for 6 nights with my husband at this hotel in the beginning of Jan 2014. The location is just perfect! U're in Hamra, in the middle of everything!Good value for money.The breakfast is simple with no variety but it doesn't matter much when you came to explore a country not a hotel breakfast))The room was just perfect,cleaning was ok.The reception staff is smiling and helpful.In general,am pretty satisfied with this hotel and will recommend!! No noise by the way!

Room Tip: 806 with a balcony!

Look, this place is far from perfect. There is a construction site nextdoors so expect some level of noise during the day. Rooms are a bit sparse and smell funny. Breakfast is relatively mediocre.
However, the location is spot-on, service laidback and the rooms appeared clean enough. The main advantage is the price. Compared to other Hamra hotels, at least here you don't get the impression of being completely ripped off. So for a short stay, I would definitely keep this hotel in mind as an option.

I stated for four nights at mid town hotel to enjoy the New Year's Eve on Beirut and i did enjoy Everything in Beirut but that hotel : mini bar is empty - hotel is not a 4 stars hotel it should be max 3 stars as the building is very poor inside and outside . The location was good and safe but the staff was not that helpful for a tourist one of them actually helped a taxi driver to abuse us by paying a way a lot from what he deserved for a pick up which made me very angry of the whole staff , room service is very poor , bathroom very small and inconvenient - I do recommend the hotel for a quick short stay but not for a tourist .

Stayed December 2013
