Seaside Furnished Apartments
Ranked #13 of 40 Specialty Lodging in Beirut
Reviewed July 18, 2012

There was a group of 8 of us staying at these apartments (2 rooms of 3 and one room of 2) and for a big group who basically just went there to party, enjoy the sun and spend time eating gorgeous Lebanese food by the coast, it was perfect for us.
The apartments are very basic, there is no real 5* comfort in these rooms just basic beds, a good kitchenette, bathroom and a good sized balcony. It was equipped well and I would say is great for a family on a budget or a large group of young people.

The location was brilliant, a few minutes from the coast walk, Hamra and Downtown. We walked to Riviera during the day for the pool party, this was 10 mins away.

Alex, the manager is very friendly. Even giving us a lift one morning :) They also let us keep our room for a late check out with no issues.

In summary, i wouldn't recommend if you're looking for glamour, but if you're looking for somewhere to lay your head and shower only, then this is perfect and fantastic value for money.

Room Tip: Get a sea view room - great view!

We were in Beirut during a festival and found it quite hard to find a place to stay. Budget accommodation is hard to find in Beirut at the best of times. After much searching we found Seaside Flats. The location is excellent - about 10mins walk to down town and staff are very friendly and helpful. Our room was huge and serviced daily. There is a sea view (but new buildings block some of it). They have wifi (not free though) and satellite television. Its an old building and the furnishings are also quite old, but its comfortable for a reasonable price.

Although the furniture is modest comparing to other hotels in the same area... but these flats has a wonderful location, it's like 100m away from the sea, and less than 5 min walk from AUB... quite, clean and very good value
the staff are very friendly... especially Alex, the manager, he was very kind and a gentleman.
I would highly recommand it, as I would definately go back to it.

Room Tip: sea view, and wi-fi,

We stayed at the Seaside Furnished flats for four nights at the beginning of a one month trip to the Middle East in September 2010. Mohammed at the front desk was very helpful and kind. The room was big, with a beautiful sea view (somewhat obstructed by new high rises, but definitely a "sea view" nonetheless). The room was clean, but the carpets were old (the sort you don't want to walk on in bare feet on) and the shower curtain was a bit grungy. The bed was big, comfortable and clean. The location is fantastic, with walking distance to Hamra and AUB less than 5 min, and less than 2 min to Corniche. We paid $121 USD per night which we felt was a bit much for the room, even with the great location. Would have felt more comfortable spending $75 or so for a room like this. If you can find something better I would go for it, but after extensive research we weren't able a better location within the same price range.

We didn't know that Beirut would be jam packed with people in the middle of the summer- in my opinion, the worst time to visit as it is hot and humid beyond belief. Hotels fill up fast. There are few budget options, and the two we looked at were DISGUSTING. Seaside flats was a godsend. Located in a great part of town- 5 minutes to AUB and 2 mins to the ocean promenade. (Note: you will have to taxi it to the nightlife spots) The rooms were clean and equipped with airconn. Wi fi is available, although coverage is spotty. The management is very nice and helpful. Highly recommended.
