  • Worst four star hotel ever


    Worst four star hotel I visited ever! The bathroom was full of dump stains plus there were bugs. No pool or restaurant as promised either. We were made to pay on arrival for our three nights stay and we were then charged $30 for using the phone with a prepaid calling card ($15 worth by the way). Some of the staff was friendly but in general they were unprofessional and the manager was arrogant and unhelpful. There are plenty of good hotels in Beirut and Hamra district for similar or lower prices so I would strongly recommend you not to choose this one.

    Just about acceptable


    The staff on the desk were very nice, shame about the hotel. Having no hot water for 48 hours didn't exactly help but even leaving that aside, the rating has to be "Could do better".

    The location was good, easy walking distance to lots of places -but then so are most hotels in Beirut. The rooms were OK, a bit tired but a reasonable size and, once it came on again, there was plenty of hot water. Breakfast was very, very ordinary though they did seem to make more of an effort on our last day.

    I wouldn't stay here again, and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

    Unique Quality: The best thing about the Grand was the pigeon shop across the road - walking in to buy a bottle of water (at 11pm) and being confronted by a wall of cages full of pigeons and what looked like the Mafia chapter of the Beyrouth Pigeon Fancier's Club was one of the more surreal experiences of our time in Beirut.
