I stayed here from 20 till 29 March 2015. I got a suite on the third floor and paid only $55 a night, including breakfast. Yes, it is old and worn down, you have a tiny TV, bathroom is mini, the breakfast is really nothing at all, but I did have a huge room, a balcony with a sea view...

This hotel looks okay from the outside but don't be fooled - it is terrible. Fitments are broken in the rooms, the showers are tiny so using them floods the bathroom floor, toilet seats slip sideways, there are no bedside lamps, no drawers for clothing, and only one power point available. I had hot water (after running it for five...

We ended up here after not reserving a budget room in Beirut in high season. We stayed in a junior suite (there were 3 of us) with airconn. I think it was around $140.00. The wi-fi was broken, and any extras (water, soda) are very expensive. The front desk was very helpful however and the hotel was clean enough. Location...

Disregard anything positive about this hotel. The only reason why you would stay here if you can not afford anything better. I filled out their online booking and stated I am coming at 1am 31st night. This means I will be staying on the night that turns from 30th to 31st. The receptionist who could barely speak English told me...

Beirut was cold and the rooms seemed colder, had to change rooms for the second night and the hot water was luke warm. Might be better during the...

The Private Hotel is great for the price. I was first booked at another hotel and decided to leave because it was dirty. I was fortunate enough to get in at the Private Hotel for the same price. And the room was so much better! Plenty of room and a fridge. The hotel was also very quiet at night. The...
