saifi urban gardens, has free breakfeast, and a very good small restasurant attached to it serving excellent home made food at reasonable prices ,, it it also has a rooftop bar open at night, and is part of an arabic language school and has very good views of the port of beirut, so if a person is looking for a budget hotel avg. 20.00 night per person this is an excellent hotel

Pension Home Vallery 3rd flr: Beirut's New Cheapest Favorite

This Hostel in known for Backpackers but but there are 2 of them now 2nd and 3rd floor with different managers , the 3rd floor is renovated and is better than all the other Pensions in the building and the location is very good in the middle of Beirut near the Beach .

The small staff of 3 persons are very kind and helpful , the main Manager speaks fluent English and Russian , the rooms are neat and clean all have fans ,some with tv's and the shared toilets are also fine , you get free internet access also ! for such a low price 10$ per person it does"nt get any better anywhere , i'd definitely recommend this place for budget travelers .

Elysee Residence Suites: DO NOT stay here

We had booked this accommodation through a travel agency and because it was Eid celebrations and the francophne festival week we could not find any other hotel that is affordable ( what I mean by affordable is less than 200$ by Beirut standerds).

Reasons I don't recommend you to stay here is:

-Tap water is SALTY...I dont usually drink tap water,but this is even salty to brush your teeth with.

-Taps & shower heads are rusty ( although we moved from the small room to a bigger suite.)

-Staff members are not flexible ...almost anything we ask not possible to do.

-house keeper NEVER re-placed towls unless we ask for it ( alough the towels looked yucky and we never used it). Thankfully we brought our own.

-each time you take a shower, water fluds from the floor drain!

-you have to leave your key each time you leave the hotel.
( they still use keys with a LARGE key chain ).

-you can only use the internet at the lobby with the slowest speed you can ever image..maybe it was dail up connection..i'm not sure though.

-house keeper always forgets to do a task ( it's either dusting , collecting the garbage or placing clean towels).

-AC was not cold enough for the junior suite,which was 140$ per night.

P.S. I usually not a complaing person..but when I means something really wrong!

The ONLY good thing about this accommodation is it's location. (just off of Al Hamra street).

UH: University Hotel, Hamraa'

A place with a nice view of the American University of Beirut (AUB). The facilities are fairly acceptable even though the place is quite small.

The receptionist, an old man doesn't speak much English though. I had to speak Syrian/Lebanese Arabic to make him understand things.

Easy access to shopping places, eateries, money changers, AUB,taxis

West House Residence: student apartments

West House Residence is a block of furnished, airconditioned apartments, used mainly by AUB students, but the apartments are also available by the day and offer a cheap alternative to local hotels. There is small bedroom, kitchen and sitting room with satellite TV. The apartments are very cheaply furnished and a bit gloomy, but OK for a couple of nights, if you need somewhere reasonably cheap to stay.

Mayfair Residence: Nothing fancy

I found this place online and only went for it because the single rooms are fairly inexpensive. Technically it is a furnished apartment and it is nothing beyond the basics. The room has a small kitchenette to use. This place is located close to American University of Beirut, so I think a lot of students live here. If you use AUB as an indicator of where you are, it is not too hard to find.

Pension home Valery: The cheapest single room ın Beirut

1 block up the Regis is a place called Pension home Valerie, next to a car hanging stuck in the wall. There, a single room cost only 8$. I talked to a (scarce) traveler outside the building one day and so I ended up hanging out with them one evening, it’s also very homely. The night prior, the other guests had been out to some restaurant and show—prices were 50% all over Beirut at that time—with he owner, also a young guy.

However the room I saw, the very cheapest, was very small and I think didn’t have a window. The other travelers, a couple showed me theirs—full of laundry hung up, food as if they robbed a supermarket—I liked that nobody would make a face because I’m having my own food in my room, even though they were cool with that at the Regis too. This place has also been recommended by women travelers.

Lebanon has a good hotel capacity, including a number of outstanding luxury establishments. In Beirut, there are also many small, well-run hostels. Furnished apartments, which offer self-service facilities, are found throughout Greater Beirut and in other populated centers.

Talal's New Hotel

The hostel owner has been very hospitable. I received welcome drink. The toilet and shower room are in general, clean.

In addition, the owner allowed me to take shower, which was FOC, in the evening before I took my long haul flight back to Singapore. It really made my day, you know, especially after a long day in Sidon and Tyre.

Furthermore, the owner directed me to take a minibus which is not far from the hostel, to airport. I was surprised that the minibus (which cost 500LL or US$0.3) went right in front of the departure hall (apparently this information was not provided by Lonely Planet guide book issued in August 2004!). A usual taxi will cost around US$10.

Rented home in mountains

People who religiously go to Beirut at least once a year tend to purchase property there - you can get a nice house in the mountains (10 min drive from beirut) for around US100K or even less

Others opt to rent these houses when their owners arent there..or rent rooms in detached or semi detached parts of Lebanese family owned property.

A friend of mine is there right now with family, in a 4 room semi detached villa for US$100 per day

Great view, clean air, company of lebanese neighbours, maybe even try home cooked local food, close to the city

Of course if your someone who preffers professional service of a hotel, then this isnt for you.

Important note: Look @ my BARGAIN EVERYTHING tip ;-) (specially dedicated to my good friend Jemm)

Lords Hotel: West Beirut, near the lighthouse

We liked the location of the hotel very much.
From the Lords Hotel it was easy to walk to the Hamra street, the heart of the city for shopping and entertainment.
Coming out the door, just turn right and we were in the right street.
The Lords Hotel is also just near the western end of the Corniche, the Avenue Charles the Gaulle. Coming out the door, just turn left and there we are.
At the Corniche turning right, and we could start our stroll along the Corniche in the direction of downtown. If you turning left at the Corniche, it was a short walk to the beach and the Pigeon Rocks.
