I have come many times in this Hostel during the last 5 years. The place is getting better and better. It was a bit crowded in summer 2009. But, ho boy, during the last trip I did in Lebanon (mostly in winter), Talal Hotel was THE place to be! I reallz hope other people will go there as well and... More

Talal is a barebones hostel; we stayed in a private room with bathroom. The hotel is well located Down Town and a short walk to Hamra and Gemmayzeh Streets, Souk, central mosque and churches. The owner of the hotel is very friendly and prepared to help with getting local information and seeing parts of Beiruit and Lebanon. Accommodation is expensive... More

That was the most disgusting place I ever stayed in..I'm a experienced traveler which stayed in many hostels and guest houses around the world, but nothing compare with this one..the owner was at the desk when we arrived, and he assigned me a bed next to the reception( maybe he was afraid that I will run away, or something)..the level...

The staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms were basic but comfortable. We had a balcony, which we enjoyed. The hotel is off a main road down a side street so it was quiet and we slept well. The location was excellent. I wouldn't bother staying anywhere else in Beirut. The best value for money in town. Reasonably priced airport... More

we had our penthouse with roof terrace, ok no elevator. the owner served tea or coffee the whole day, thus creating a multicultural center. Rooms and bathroom are clean. Between a Syrian refugee, an iranian spy and some Southamericain tourists + the lebanese people spending time there we had a great time and I learned much more about the country... More

I stayed at this hotel for 7 nights and it quickly became my home in Beirut. From the first moment we arrived, the staff made us feel safe and welcome, and made sure that we enjoyed our time there. For 20 USD, they can arrange an airport pick up. I highly recommend taking this option because southern Beirut isn’t very... More
