“Welcoming!”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

My husband and I had a sweet stay at Le Commodore's suite! Staff was more than welcoming, friendly and helpful. Clean and fresh room with plenty of sunlight at day..delicious breakfast and a variety at the buffet. My husband enjoyed the pool while I went walking to Hamra street for shopping!
A positive note could be taken for safety there as after checkout my husband forgot his shoulder bag that had our passports and an expensive watch..we went the next day and found it there safe!
Overall, comfortable stay,great location, and trustworthy.

One of the old 5 star hotels in central Hamra street.
Rooms are good in size and well serviced. Staff was relativelly friendly. We did not try their food as we preferred to eat out in many of the restaurant available in the area.
Lounge and corridors have no AC (or very little).
As expected in Beirut electricity failures are a common thing so hotel uses its own generator that switches on automatically , a bit annoying when you are in the lift on the 10th floor and you wait for electricity to come back for more than 2 minutes!
Nice small swimming pool and fitness center.
For what we paid it was worth while.

Dear Cameltamer,

Many thanks for sharing with us your feedback regarding your recent stay at Le Commodore Hotel.

We are delighted to hear your positive feedback concerning the rooms and our services. We are also glad to know that you found our staff friendly and helpful; However, some other stuff like electricity is out of control but we did our best to minimize the duration of power cut to 30 seconds for our generators to operate.

Hope in your next visit to Lebanon to try our restaurants and get the opportunity to taste our Japanese Cuisine Benihana.

Look forward to accommodating you in the very near future.

Best regards,

This hotel may have been the go-to hotel in earlier decades, but it sure isn't now. The customer service is pretty terrible. The breakfast restaurant had plenty of waiters, however they were more interested in chatting among themselves than actually providing any service. They seemed genuinely surprised when I asked for coffee every morning with my meal. A lot of times there was no receptionist at the front desk, just a conceirge who didn't speak English. So it was impossible to get questions answered. Finally, the room walls are paper thin. I could hear my neighbor's phone conversations and TV shows loud and clear. On the plus side, its in a good location.

I am usually quite skeptical about Beirut hotels but my last stay at the Commodore with my family was a very pleasant one, exceeding my expectations. the hotel has all the basics needed for a short stay in good quality. it was clean despite the old tiles and carpeting. i must admit that the staff is remarkably much more courteous, friendly and helpful than many more expensive hotels. i wish here to express a special gratitude to the coach at the pool who befriended my son without any hesitation or reservations.Thank you Muhammad. My family has been recommending the Commodore for many of our friends who are still attached to the down town area of Beirut. Value for money the Commodore has it.

The staff was very nice and met us with hospitality. All we needed could be produced in just minutes. The gym and pool were very good! We even got even tickets to train at Lifestyles Gym for free. Around the corner of the hotell is Salon de Maya and does hair, nails, cheeks, lips and much more. They have everything within beauty. In front of the hotel is a very nice fruit trade and down the street is also a large supermarket. Location of the hotel is perfect. The entire stay was a 10 out of 10! :)

I have been staying at the Commodore since 2006. It has always been a great experience. The restaurants are nice. The rooms are good and the staff are very helpful. The hotel rates are considerably lower than comparable hotels in the area. The location is wonderful within walking distance of stores and restaurants.

I stayed about 3 weeks in the Le Commodore Hotel at the summer of 2012 during attending a training course in Beirut.
I shared a single room with one of my coworkers in that hotel and till this very day whenever we remember those days we cant stop ourselves from smiling due to the good memories we had there.
The beds, the bath and other room facilities were clean and the room itself was friendly decorated. The pool was wonderful and always available for the guest of the hotel.
The stuff were helpful and always face us with a shining smile. I wish I can remember them names to show my regards to them for being professional during our stay there.
The Location of the hotel is so close to the famous AlHammra Street and as far as I remember it is about 15 or 20 minutes from the Airport.
Finally, I highly recommended this hotel for the above reasons.

Room Tip: ensure that your reservation include the breakfast, it worth it
