Renting someone else’s apartment with Airbnb is a fun alternative to the traditional hotel business. You can learn a lot from other people’s different cultures by their places. And you also get to travel and be independent in your own home at the same time, all while travelling to and visiting amazing countries and cities. That is why I am making this list with the best Airbnbs in Beirut!
I absolutely love Airbnb. I use it almost every time I travel (unless I can stay with friends). I have stayed in amazing apartments with great panoramic views, on the site of a thousand year old church in Italy or in a great cabin on top of a beautiful cliff in Ireland.
When we traveled to Beirut, we decided to book an Airbnb for obvious reasons – it is cheaper than a hotel and we were able to find great places very cheaply – even over New Year’s Eve.
Here are our 10 favorite cheap Airbnb’s in Beirut
Modern and Spacious Mar Mikhael apartment
This great, modern Mar Mikael apartment is an absolute steal at less than $50 a night. This Airbnb has 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom and can house 3 guests as one can sleep on the sofa.
The large living room is very light and airy and has a nice sofa to lounge on. You can use the flat screen TV to watch some series and films.
The kitchen is fully equipped with a gas hob and all the pots and pans you might need to use!
I absolutely love the view from the balcony – on one side you can see the sea while on the other side you get that typical Lebanese view of houses built up against the hill. A great cheap place to stay at in Beirut!
Luxurious Lebanese heritage apartment
I want to live in this beautiful, cheap Beirut Airbnb! No – seriously… it is so incredibly beautiful!
From the light and airy decor to the plants everywhere, and even the beautiful bath with silver lion paws! I am in love with this Airbnb!
At a mere $39 a night this is probably one of the best and most amazing cheap Airbnbs you can rent in Beirut!
The kitchen is absolutely beautiful and there is a great kitchen for you to use and cook in. Next time I am going to Beirut! I will definitely try to stay here!
Modern Spacious 1 bedroom Airbnb in the heart of Beirut
This great modern Airbnb in the centre of Beirut is very modern and probably one of the best Airbnbs to get in the Lebanese capital under $50. I love the decoration of the apartment and there is a little garden you can sit in.
If you are heading to Beirut by car you can also park your car in the underground parking of the apartment.
The apartment is located near Mar Mitr – maybe a bit out of the way of Hamra, but not too far either. You can easily get a taxi or a ‘service’.
There are loads or restaurants, bars and shops around and the Sioufi park is very close as well!
Poolside and Deck Studio - Charming
I always love an Airbnb with a pool. They are not always cheap – but this one in Beirut is!
This cosy serviced apartment is only a stone’s throw away from the American university and the beautiful Beirut beaches.
Although the apartment itself might not be as nice or as impressive as the other two, I do find that the pool makes up for a lot! The pool itself has a nice and cosy seating area and you have a great view over the area.
I can totally see myself drinking a cup of coffee or Lebanese wine up there!
Hamra calm and cousy apartment airbnb in Beirut
Looking to stay in Hamra? Then this apartment will be a great fit. This two bedroom apartment is for rent for $28 a night and can sleep 4. Yes you are reading this correctly! You will pay $7 per person when staying here! Pretty amazing, no?
The bedrooms are pretty spacious and although the apartment is not very modern, the price really does make up for this!
You can park for free in the street if you are planning to rent a car in Beirut or drive up to the capital. The kitchen is fully equipped which means you can save on restaurants and cook your own food!
Mina Hoson 443 - 10th C
One of the things I love is a great view. This cute little studio on the 10th floor will give you exactly that.
For $40 a night you can stay in this little studio near Mina Hoson. You will be in the centre of things of Beirut and getting to the beaches and museums is incredibly easy.
The little kitchen is fully equipped and there is a gas stove which will help you cook up a feast. This Airbnb is great if you want to stay in the centre of the city with great transport links to the best parts of Beirut.

There is a nice bathroom with a shower and a toilet.
The studio is located in a very nice neighbourhood close to the National Museum of Beirut.

I personally love Hamra and found it a great area for shopping, drinking and eating and I can understand why you would like to stay here.

On Airbnb you can sometimes also rent out a hotel room for a great price. This beautiful and modern serviced hotel room.
This hotel room has a beautiful little open kitchen with bar and a big bathroom with shower. It is located in Mar Maroun which means it is easily reachable by taxi and ‘Sevice’ and in a great spot if you want to explore a bit of the city!
