Port View is centrally located near downtown, in Gemmayze, and the place is wonderful. Our room had a great view and the staff is so incredibly friendly. It was convenient to have wifi access, and the continental breakfasts were greatly appreciated! Overall a really wonderful stay -- I felt very welcomed and the staff seemed genuinely interested in making sure... More

This hotel is really in a great area in Beirut - the centre of Gemayze. I found the staff incredibly friendly and helpful throughout my stay. I did find it frustrating that the hotel does not support online booking - having to send a deposit by Western Union seemed a little dated and totally not convenient. My room was a... More

After booking this hotel I read the reviews on here and was a bit concerned. However I found the hotel to be a good choice in the end. The location is excellent (and not hard to find at all, opposite a key landmark, Electricite du Liban building), just a stone's throw from lots of restaurants and nightlife. We were offered... More

This hotel could be described as a step up from a youth hostel, nothing more. We were very dissapointed with our stay. The room was extremely basic, and most of things in it didn't work well. For example, the toilet didn't flush properly, if at all and the smell in our bathroom was awful after not being able to flush... More

This hotel was such a disappointment. You can do better... don't book here unless there are no other options! Plus points 1 - Port View Hotel was well located for the hip Gemmayze neighbourhood and close to plenty of decent bars and restaurants. 2 - Front desk staff gave free wifi access (which apparently they normally charge for). Bad points... More

This was a real find in a city where hotel prices tend to be extortionate! The location really is great. Gemmayze is the hip district at night with amazing bars, restaurants, rooftops! :) And it was only a 10 minute walk to downtown. The thing that impressed us most was the friendly staff! They could not have been more helpful!... More

We stayed at this hotel because it was recommended in the Lonely Planet as being clean. We were unlucky as the room they gave us had a sewage smell and the bathroom really stank too, it would make me wretch every time I had to use it. The room was not clean, hairs on the bedding and the windows had... More

There are not many budget options for hotels in Beirut. Port View Hotel is fairly basic, but a better standard than the very basic hostel-type hotels available, generally costing $80/night, but when we stayed the price had gone up to $99 for Easter. The hotel is slightly further along Rue Gouraud than you expect, opposite the electricity building, and almost... More
