This is not a 5 star hotel and does not claim to be, the costs per night are accordingly lower than in some of the up-market hotels in Beirut. The location is a key aspect, it's right on the main street in Mar Mikhael where the party is happening and therefore also walking distance to Geitawi, Mar Mitr (Spinneys!), Sassine... More

Stayed two nights at this hotel and have mixed feelings. Really liked the staff, room was clean and we had an amazing balcony onto Gouraud st. Location is also fantastic, walking distance to all the excellent offerings in gemmayze and mar mikhael. On the downside, it feels like a hostel - can hear your neighbors perfectly through thin walls, have... More

I stayed here after Saifi ran out of rooms for me. It's a very basic hotel, but very clean. I was really hesitant after reading mixed reviews online, but I'm so glad I stayed. I took a really small room that had working AC and a TV. It was quiet, the bed was comfy, and I had a great night's... More

The Port View is located right on the edge of Gemmayze (Gourard) street with lots of restaurants and bars, but is just far enough away from them that means you will still get a good sleep. It is a pleasant 15-20 minute walk to downtown. My room was simply appointed, but clean and comfortable, the bed was cumpfy and the... More

I stayed at Port View hotel for 10 days on a business trip for an NGO. This hotel is a great price in a great location, and while the other reviews are right to some extent (it's in a trendy part of town so Friday and Saturday night is loud for light sleepers), the hotel has really stepped up its...
