A city as frenetic as Beirut calls for all your energy. And for that, you need a nest of your own, a place to recharge – some good accommodation, basically. In Beirut, hotels come in all shapes and sizes, and span the price range from the blush-inducingly opulent (one pool not enough? How about four?) to the eyebrow-raisingly affordable. While it remains the case that those with full wallets are better catered for than those on a shoestring, the choice of backpacker-friendly accommodation has improved a great deal in recent years, and visitors can increasingly opt for good beds at bargain prices – all the better to splurge on cocktails in Mar Mikhael. Here, then, are our 15 favourite hotels, hostels and apartments in the capital, from cut-rate to classy. And it's good night from us.
