Reviewed 23 June 2014

By far my favourite hotel to stay at in Beirut. This is more of a boutique hotel so I would not advise it to anyone wanting large and blingy lobbys...
The service at the front desk is very personal and welcoming which starts your stay off on the right tone. The hotel has recently been refurbished somewhat and I was so happy to see that they had kept their style and charm intact.
the rooms are very comfortable and very clean which is always high on my list of priorities.
My only sad surprise came when I went to the rooftop bar, the very well known SYDNEY'S bar that has existsed since before the war to see that it too had been renovated... but also redecorated.... and has unfortunately lost its charm and joined the ranks of the non-refined rather brash interiors that could be anywhere and have no history. A sad discovery. ignoring the rooftop bar, this hotel is a home away from home.

Dear Chantal S,

Thank you for choosing to stay at Le Vendome Hotel Beirut and for sharing your feedback with regards to the hotel’s renovation.
We are delighted to read that, overall, you enjoyed your time at our boutique hotel and refer to it as your “home away from home.” We are also pleased that you found that our personalized service and facilities met your expectations and that the hotel’s charm and style is still intact after its renovation.
We are sorry to read that you were disappointed with Sydney’s renovation. After a long period of time it was a must to do this renovation and we did our best to maintain the charm and spirit of the place. We hope to welcome you back soon to Sydney’s so you get to experience the service, new menu, and charm that you are looking for to the fullest.
Thank you once again for choosing Le Vendome Hotel and we hope to see you soon on your next visit to Beirut.

Best regards,
Gaby Salameh

I've stayed in so many hotels, Le Vendome was one of my best experiences ever. The breakfast venue on the rooftop overlooking the Mediterranean was sublime. The super friendly staff are always ready to help you. Their little gestures in leaving chocolates, carefully wrapped small gifts every night made my stay in Lebanon and in that hotel one of the best. Lovely boutique hotel that is run by a large corporate but feels like a little family.

Room Tip: Ask for the sea view rooms (not the city side), not so much to see there.

Stayed 2 times already in this hotel, and it was in 1 word: Great!

Upon arrival it feels really warm, not how big chain hotels normally feel. Lobby is small and cosy, with nice decoration.

Stayed 1 time in their Executive Suite, and 1 time in Executive Room. Both rooms are well decorated, with lots of amenities and a balcony with a lovely view of the Mediterranean.

During summer time possibility to swim at either Phoenicia or St. Georges Yacht Club, which is also a nice extra.

Breakfast buffet is of good quality, but as it is a small boutique hotel, the buffet is not a huge one. Enough for me though.

Location is also a good point, on the promenade, close to downtown shopping.

Will stay again in a couple of weeks, the hotel is thát good!

Thumbs up!!

Room Tip: Try to take a room on high floor

I had this hotel recommended by some local friends and it turned to be a good choice. It has a unique Lebanese style with Arabic influence. Breakfast is not good enough and even told the staff it has to be improved. Overall a good experience but wouldn't go there again. I would try something else.

Le Vendome is officially my go-to hotel in Lebanon, followed by Phoenicia Hotel Beirut, also part of Intercontinental Hotel Groups.
The room i stayed in for just two nights was beautiful and charming, fully equipped and perfectly clean. I loved the flowers which added a warm touch to the room. The beds are the most comfortable i've experienced at a hotel so far and although there is construction close by to the hotel, i did not hear anything as i'm guessing the windows are sound proof.
The staff are fantastic and make you feel like they're there only to serve you, like you;re the VIP of the hotel! As for the food.... I COULD LIVE JUST EATING FROM THE BREAKFAST BUFFET EVERYDAY! it had absolutely everything from fresh eggs benedict to spanish jamon to all kinds of grains and cereals and danish pastries and croissants, jams, honey, halawa, a big selection of arabic and french breads.. It really is more than a royal breakfast.
I also had the chance to dine at La petite Maison, which was a wonderful experience. I've tried the original one in south of France and the one in Le Vendome is just as good! I loved the creamy burrata and the shrimp starters, the fillet de bar grillé was perfectly cooked and juicy, and the the rigatoni pasta with a creamy sauce and mushrooms was superb! The desserts are also delicious, especially the creme brulee!

Room Tip: Sea Viwe rooms have the best view!

We spent our first 2 nights of honeymoon in this hotel. The staff are very helpful and friendly. Rooms and bed are very comfortable, clean and the decoration gives the experience a real charm. Breakfast is of a top quality at the roof with sea view, in the sydney's restaurant. You get an access to the best spa and fitness center in town, plus a free professional massage. Centrally located in Beirut, with 2 of the best restaurants in town, our experience was lovely. The hotel has a certain charm that is somehow unique in Beirut.

Room Tip: Try to take a room with a sea view, it's worth it.
