Only three days so whirlwind visit. Perfect location for walking to my meetings at AUB as well as exploring neighborhood. Super friendly staff. Proactively helped me with arrangements, including walking advice. Clean room, great pillows ( trust me- this is important) and luxurious towels.

The hotel itself is modest, but the location of the hotel is excellent for anyone who wants to visit Hamra street and downtown or American Univeristy Hotspital. Transportation available from the hotel to anywhere you want to go. On the side there is a nice book store and coffee shop which is a plus.

This is the fourth time I have stayed at Rotanna hotel in Beirut. Always for business. Nice spacious rooms. Clean and comfortable. Excellent location in the city center. Great breakfast buffet. Power cuts are common in Beirut and hotel is no exception. I recommend it and would personally go back again.

I had a very romantic stay in this hotel around Valentine's time. I never knew this hotel has such a stunning and exceptional view of beirut. Another pleasant surprise was their seafood night at the Olive Garden Restauraunt and the staff across the hotel who really go out of the way to make you happy. They are always smiling!
