I've booked a non refundable room and was charged for the stay at the day of reservation.

Upon arrival the guy at the reception was so rude and did not believed that I've booked non refundable room. He was so lazy that he did not even check my reservation from the booking.com and charged me once again.

Next day I showed a statement from my bank with 2 payments for the room. I asked several times for the refund or cancellation but nothing happened. I returned home and still nothing. They did nothing to return money.

Avoid this hotel.

Room Tip: Do not stay there

I stayed with a group of friends for four nights. The staff running the place were very friendly, and answered a ton of questions for us about things to do, etc. We also used the hotel bus to go to the airport and it was very convienient, though a bit expensive.

The rooms were clean and they had several options for rooms that slept 4-5 people, which was perfect for our group. Additionally we enjoyed the small kitchen area for storing leftovers, etc.

The breakfast was mostly traditional Lebanese and featured fresh juices.

The location was within walking distance to all of the restaurants and activities on Hamra street. Overall a good, affordable place to stay with a group.

Stayed in this hotel for one night in May 2013
small hotel, not much stuff, got free breakfast and good internet

However the room they gave me was quite small contrary to my expectation but didnt matter since i was there just for a night. Breakfast was average next day. could've been better as many hotels nearby offer better breakfast in same or even less price.

I asked for a coffee maker which they brought but it just burnt out when i tried to make coffee

but still nice. The staff at check in are not so good in other languages but there was a guy Ali who helped

Room Tip: The location maybe a bit difficult to know especially the entrance is on the inside so keep in midn...

Its a family run hotel so there are little issues but very friendly staff who will go the extra mile for their guests. The transportation was expensive if used the hotels limo: food is average but again good location in the heart of hamra

My family and I stayed at Lavender for a week in June 2013. We rented a suite the size and quality were excellent. The hotel is small and cosy and great for families travelling with kids. The location was ideal and we saved a lot of money on transportation. Restaurants, cafes, shopping, the sea, AUB were all walking distance!
Staff are super friendly and in all had a wonderful experience there! Thanks Lavender!

Room Tip: Ask for extra pillows and blankets!

This hotel is ideally placed for life in Beirut . In the Hamra district it is easy walking to shops, nightlife and the Corniche. It is a friendly quiet hotel away from the Main Street. Excellent breakfast included in room rate. Staff can't do enough.

Room Tip: Ask for a free upgrade.
