Super friendly staff, perfect location, but the bar at the base of the Port View building - currently called "Plan B 18" - make this hotel a place to avoid. Almost weekly, a violent, loud street fight breaks out at this bar and spills out to the street - drawing crowds of dozens armed with broken bottles, fists, rocks and...

Not the flashiest of places but if all you're after is a cheap bed near the town centre action, you're in the right place! Rooms may have originally offered a view of the port but most of the port view is now blocked by the Lebanon Electricity building.

Sales, not polite, no service, dirty lines, line feels maivais, broken mattresses, WC dirty, cockroaches, moisisures, blood stain on the sheets ... It is a place that does not deserve to have a second! Refuses give the money back and accept their mistakes! No way! There is for this price way better place....

The Port View is a centrally located hotel in Beirut where you can walk or grab a taxi to most relevant places. While the rooms are a bit old and the breakfast isn't great, especially for the prices, the hotel overall is clean and the owner and staff are very friendly and accommodating. And most importantly, the AC works! Additionally,...

Located in one of the best streets in Beirut, Port View hotel offers a good slightly low-budget friendly kind of services. The hotel is right in front the Lebanon Electricity building which is well known to everyone in terms of riding a cab or a service car, it's a bit old but it's still functioning well. The staff is very...

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...

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...
