Regis Hotel
Ranked #26 of 46 Beirut B&B and Inns
Reviewed 9 February 2010

I spent two months living here and this place made my stay. The location is fantastic, just off the Corniche and 10mins walk from Downtown, Hamra and AUB. While spartan, the rooms are large and never cold. The place is well equipped, with all the basic amenities and decent bathrooms. Bearing in mind that it is a 2 star hotel, it measures up very well and from what I saw around Beirut, it is the best value.

It is run by a family, and the two young brothers who manage it day-to-day are incredibly hospitable and friendly. They have become some of my best friends in Lebanon, and I was not suprised to realise how many of their local friends are ex-guests. They can organise just about anything, and give advice about everything from tours, to solo trips, to nights out and shopping. Both speak excellent English, and there is at least one Spanish speaker at the hotel, as well as some French spoken. I never had any sort of inconvenience that couldn't be helped, and a number of female travellers I spoke to commented that the hotel feels very safe.

I will never stay at another hotel in Beirut, and I'm not alone in this view.

P.S. For the person who is upset about not being permitted to bring someone upstairs, you will find that it is the law in Lebanon, aimed at preventing crime. The hotel can be fined or closed for permitting non-guests in rooms.

We stayed at the Regis Hotel for two nights. The guy working there was really helpful, and the location is great. There`s free internet for 15 minutes and our room had AC. It was really noisy all night though. The bedsheets were clean, but the rest of the room was not. I`ve seen worse and for 40 $ for a double it`s not so bad.

Dear Mazen

I just want to take this opportunity to say thank you so much for your hospitality during our stay at Regis Hotel.

We are very grateful of having a lovely room and the views from the balcony were amazing.

When we come to Beirut again, we will be sure to stay at your hotel.

Thank you again

I wasn't expecting much, but the Regis is a gem! I arranged an airport pick up through the hotel and was met promptly by a smiling driver who spent the short journey extolling how great Lebanon is! Hotel reception was equally friendly. Reception has answered all my email queries prior to arrival.

The room was simple but more than adequate - two single beds, an efficient aircon and a tv with scores of channels. The bathroom was clean and relatively large. Granted, the shower was a little low, but there was plenty of hot water.

The hotel has hot and cold drinks on a honour system in the lobby; there are cafes and a McDonald's near by too.

If you're not that bothered by decor and soft furnishings and want a cheap room (I believe $35/night is cheap by Lebanese standards), then this hotel is a great option.

Been in this hotel for a week. It was $30 for double room occupancy and $25 for single (same room). Room was clean, with tv and ac unit (both quite new and with remote) There is no restaurant in the hotel, you can have some hot and soft drinks in recepcion. Couple of food stalls and restaurants are near by. Hotel staff is very fine. Hotel is located in coastal area of Hamra (half of the hotel has sea view rooms, see attached image). Excelent budget hotel, will go again.
