Casa D'or Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 14 May 2012

Casa D'Or is an excellent hotel, super-helpful staff and a home-away-from home.
For scholars and others staying longer periods, the big rooms, cooking facilities and proximity the AUB and LAU universities are an additional bonus. But - Casa D'Or should consider making WiFi free for its customers, making an even more attractive package.

Room Tip: The Junior Business Suites are especially attractive (for those who can afford it)

One of the nicest hotels I've stopped in. We had a junior suite, which was very spacious and very good value for money. Very clean, just perhaps the decor was a bit dated, but that's really the only complaint. The staff were very friendly - we arrived at around 9am due to an early flight, but the staff quickly got the room ready for us so we didn't have to wait all day to check in. Breakfast buffet was nice, plenty to choose from (fruit, toast, meats, yoghurt, cereal, pizza!). The hotel arranged a taxi pick-up and drop-off to and from the airport, and their driver was very safe, which seemed to be a rarity! Bars, shops and restaurants just round the corner. I would definitely stop here again.

Good location in bustling Hamra neighborhood, with good shopping, people-watching. Walking distance to AUB. Staff very cordial, polite, helpful. 24 hour front desk. Most staff spoke English. Very good breakfast buffet included. Room comfortable, adequately appointed, fairly quiet. No view. Internet access near lobby for a fee. Do not miss Kabab-Ji for Lebanese fast food or Mojo music club nearby!

The hotel is located in the busy Hamra district, with plenty of ships and restaurants nearby. My room was large, clean and well maintained, and then hotel staff were very attentive. Breakfast was good (as long as you want a Lebanese breakfast), though there is no fitness room, pool etc. If you want a decent hotel without paying the rates of the expensive chains that have moved in to the new business district, then this is a good choice. WiFi is available, though you have to pay extra for it.

Room Tip: Choose a high floor to be well away form street noise, as this is a busy area.

Sarah A,

My friend and I stayed 6 nights at CASA D'OR on Hamra street
check in process and staff were pleasent and very friendly.
As I walked into my room I was very surprised, it was spacious & nice
with very bright big window.
comfy big bed, plasma TV, small kitchen and clean bathroom.
the cleanliness was generally very good, the room's furniture was a bit
dated though but i didn't care about it. The hotel offered a good quality
buffet breakfast and decent value meals.
I was very happy with the location it is in the middle of hamra just 2 min
walk to shopping areas and restaurants alike.
would i go back to the same hotel? BIG YES & I do recommend it.

In a city where many hotels can be expensive, Casa D’Or offers excellent value for money.

Transfer from the airport: all very smooth and easy, exactly as arranged via email beforehand. US$33 for a 15 minute journey.

Location: perfect for Hamra, with the American University less than 5 minutes walk away and the Corniche 5 to 10 minutes. The central business district with the re-constructed French buildings, the new souk and the delightful Zaintunay Bay is about 25 minutes walk; the bar/restaurant area of Gemmayzeh about 35 to 45 minutes (or under 10 minutes in a taxi). Whilst Hamra is certainly one of the more authentic and vibrant districts in the city, I would probably stay in the re-built central business district area on a subsequent visit, as the centre of gravity of Beirut continues to move eastwards.

Check-in/front desk: everyone was delightful and very helpful. However, they could provide better maps of the city (in general, there are very few street signs and names in Beirut).

Room: very clean, with fridge and hot plates (not used by me), clean bathroom with decent pressure for the shower. The hotel might want to consider offering hair conditioner as an amenity. They gave me a kettle for my stay. Very comfortable bed. Room was a decent size. There was continual, low level noise from the large air conditioning units in the back courtyard (I had requested a room at the back, to avoid the noise of the traffic/frequentl taxi honking at the front); in addition the in-room air conditioner was somewhat noisy, plus there was a light hum from the fridge – so this is not the quietest of hotels. The room curtains were very thin, so if your sleeping pattern is sensitive to bright morning sunlight from pre 6 am, remember to take eye shades. Internet access worked very well, but cost $22 for around 24 hours of access spread over 6 days (but remember to log out when done otherwise the meter keeps clocking).

Breakfast: very good – cereals, breads and pastries, cold cuts, cheese, eggs, fruits. You can request an omelette. The waiter was a bit grumpy. The breakfast room was calm and tastefully furnished (indeed all the communal areas were well appointed and felt calm compared to the frenetic pace of Hamra outside). Potentially the hotel could offer an espresso/cappuccino machine, rather than just filter coffee. Wi-fi worked smoothly in all the communal areas.

Other: there is a food supermarket (Co-Op) less than 5 minutes away (turn right out of the hotel, then immediately left and it is about a block away on the left hand side). To buy drinks, there is a shop called 24/7 on Hamra (turn left out of the hotel, left on Hamra – about 5 minutes away on the left hand side near Starbucks). There are innumerable coffee shops and restaurants very close to the hotel.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Casa D’Or

I have spent 7 days at this hotel and my experience is really great. It is very well located in the heart of Hamra and next to the American University of Beirut. The room was very clean and comfortable, provided with all the necessary things to be well, also a small kitchen. The restaurant is very interesting and has good prices. But what I really appreciate most is the friendly staff at the reception, rooms and restaurant. All of them are very nice and happy to help. Definitely, I recommend this hotel for families, couples, tourists and business. It is extemely clean and comfortable.
