“Absolutely the best hotel in Beirut!”
Reviewed 2 October 2013

I love staying at the Gefinor Rotana because I can always count on everything being absolutely perfect. I have been staying at the Gefinor Rotana for 7 years and nothing has ever gone wrong. The staff is absolutely can do and without a doubt, the best at any hotel I've ever stayed at....anywhere in the world. The hotel definitely is 5 Star...the rooms are spacious and immaculate. There is a swimming pool on the top floor which provides a beautiful view over Beirut and to the sea. The Gefinor has a lovely restaurant and the breakfast buffet is amazing! I can't say enough about how wonderful the Gefinor Rotana. I simply love the staff and if you want to stay at a hotel where you can count on everything being absolutely perfect, I would highly recommend the Gefinor Rotana.

Room Tip: All the rooms are lovely but ask for one with a sea view

Great stay for 2 nights only. Valet parking was very helpful an friendly. Had breakfast in the patio of the all day dining in the lobby...I think the name of the restaurant is Olive Garden...very pleasant outdoor venue in the middle of the city.
Rooms are comfortable and internet speed was great, although they are charging for it....
Would definitely return for my next stay in Beirut.

Our family loves styling at Rotana nd this time my five year old daughter wanted to celebrate her birthday by the pool at Rotana, and she did. Thanks to the wonderful staff, especially Khalil, who made her wish come true. It is always good to come back to Rotana. It always feels like home away from home. Great place but even better, fantastic staff from the doorman to everyone else!

Room Tip: Club rooms are worth the extra money and rooms in the upper floors win sea view.

The service was most welcoming, the location is great and the gym and swimming pool were superb, food was very good.
The entrance of the hotel is one of the nicest I have ever been to, the fresh orkeda was all around and the smile was on all staffs faces.
A draw back though, the room was had a slight wet carpet smell
