Accomodation in Beirut without reservation

by Dienekes

What are my chances of finding (reasonably quickly) budget accomodation in Beirut around the end of June if I make no prior reservations?
Thanks in advance.

Your chances are GOOD :-)

You'll love Beirut.

Ah, yes, I overlooked the 'budget' part. Sorry!

Re: Accomodation in Beirut without reservation

by Dienekes

Thanks for the answers; I will only probably stay in Beirut for one night (unfortunately), so I'll manage with less than budget option. What is the range of not-quite-budget prices in Beirut? Or are there only high-end hotels?

And, a luxury property run by the Relais et Chateaux chain (like the Esplanade in Zagreb!): www.albergobeirut.com

I'll be in Zagreb this Sept, btw..

Travel Tips for Beirut

Rebuilding the city

by sachara

The first morning in Beirut we started our walk in West Beirut in the Hamra district.
A nice area with a lot of shops, cafes and restaurants. The most buildings were undestroyed, but sometimes we saw a destroyed building along the street.
How further we walked downtown, the more traces we saw of the civil war, but more striking was the activity we saw everywhere around, like removal of ruins and building activities.

Holiday Inn

by sachara

From the Hamra area we walked in the direction of the St Georgs Bay for a drink at the Georgs Yachtclub and a stroll along the Corniche afterwards.
On our way we couldn't miss the Holiday Inn Hotel, an icon of the war, with many holes in the walls.

Money--feel free to use USD!

by travelmad478

The Lebanese economy is extremely dollarized, with the Lebanese pound pegged to the US dollar at a rate of 1500:1. I was not too surprised to see many prices marked in dollars, but I was surprised to learn that many merchants and taxi drivers are just as happy to take US dollars as Lebanese pounds. For instance the Virgin Megastore sold me my Beirut map for eight dollars, not the 12,000 LBP also marked on it, and taxi drivers tended to quote me fares in dollars (although I paid in LBP). I took 75,000 LBP from the ATM machine when I arrived in Beirut, and had a hard time getting rid of it!

Haigazian University/Armenian Evangelical Church

by mikey_e

Sometimes it seems like the Armenians have a dizzying number of denominations for such a small community resident in Lebanon. They make up about 3% of the population and are split between Orthodox, Catholic and Evangelicals, and possibly other sects. The Armenians have long been present in Lebanon, but their numbers grew after the events of 1915-16, as many refugees from the Ottoman Empire were resettled by the French in Lebanon. There are a number of Armenian institutions in the country now, including Haigazian University and the Armenian Evangelical Church, located in Kantari, about a 15-20 minute walk from the centre of the city. The University was founded in 1955 and is a well-established and respected school in the Middle East, having been the first institution to launch a rocket into space (this is information I'm getting from another source). It is named after an Armenian scholar, Dr. Haigazian, who received his PhD from Yale and led an Apostolic Institute in Konya, Turkey. He died while being deported to the Syrian desert in 1922, but his name lives on in this institution. The church connected to the University is also very interesting, as it is completed in neo-Gothic style but using white bricks - a unique combination of the dark, brooding style of Gothic with very light building materials. The choice of style should make obvious the influence of Western sources on this particular group.
