“Good business hotel”
Reviewed 12 October 2012 via mobile

Never stayed at a Holiday Inn but Was upgraded to a business room on arrival which is always nice. The room was really nice with a comfortable bed, large flat screen tv and a really effective but quiet A/C. The bathroom is compact but still comfortable and has Azzore bath amenities which is a nice touch. Quiet room so had a very good sleep. Not the most exciting location but a few nice restaurants nearby not to mention a really nice cafe down the road which has excellent and good atmosphere. Bar was closed during my stay but there is nice bar just outside the hotel. Breakfast was good as was lunch. In all a very good hotel for a business trip.

Stayed September 2012, travelled on business

I stayed in this hotel for 3 days whilst on a business trip to Beirut, the staff are very friendly and welcoming and the rooms were spacious and clean. The hotel itself is within close proximity from downtown (10 minute taxi ride) and there is a coffee shop underneath.

Room Tip: Go for an Executive room, they are much bigger.

The hotel itself is a good choise for business trips, location in Verdun is beautiful with shops and restaurants nearby although it might not be same as in Hamra. Rooms are spacious, comfortable and clean, only the breakfast is a little poor. Also the price for wireless internet are a little crazy, wlan should be free as per international standard.
the staff is very helpful and friendly and the overall experience was good.

I stayed in Holiday in Beirut for work for 2 nights. The location is excellent with lots of restaurants and cafes. It was very close to my office in Beirut so the commute was very easy (just 5 min walk).

The breakfast was basic(breads and coffee) and closed due to Ramadan and you had to order beforehand. They didn't communicate this, thus I found an empty buffet and no time to order and eat.

The rooms are good sized and clean and internet is for free. The in-room dining is average so I recommend walking down to the street as there are some excellent restaurants adjacent to the hotel.

There are better and more expensive choices of hotels in Beirut for holiday travelers but surely Holiday in Beirut is a good hotel for the price you pay for the stay.

I stayed at Holiday Inn Dunes several times between October 2011 and June 2012 while on business trips and it has become one of my favourites in Beirut and Lebanon.

The location is quite convenient as it is part of the Dunes shopping centre which contains a few cinema screens, cafes and shops, and it is surrounded by restaurants, cafes and shopping centres along the trendy Verdun street. It is also close to the sea side and the "corniche" so you can take a stroll along the seaside street at nights (this street is packed with eateries and cafes).

The hotel staff are all very friendly and welcoming, the rooms are lovely, clean, quiet and cozy, and the beds are soooo comfortable. I especially enjoyed the buffet breakfast and the wide variety it offered.

I recommend this hotel for both business or pleasure.

Stayed at this hotel for a short vacation, it wasn't bad at all.

Its located in a very nice street which is considered upscale in Beirut, you have pretty much everything around you. The hotel is also part of a shopping complex, with cinemas, arcade and a bowling alley.

The breakfast was average i my opinion, and prices can be a little better.

The rooms like all Holiday Inn rooms were nicely designed and spacious, checking in and out took a little more time than expected but overall I would definitely go for this hotel again.

it's my second stay in Holiday Inn Dunes and can shout loud that the hotel performance / services provided in comparison to its rate is amazing.
Staff welcoming, classy lobby / suite rooms wide and neat with wonderful pillows.
I enjoyed with my wife the delicious breakfast.
The most of all the manager comes himself and welcome you and gives you his business card for any complain.
i will strongly recommend the hotel.

Room Tip: Excellent captain suites
