Celynn est une hôtesse très disponible, arrangeante, serviable et surtout très amicale.
Les travaux qu'elle prévoit de faire dans son appartement/atelier rendront celui-ci encore plus agréable à vivre... N'hésitez pas à passer vos soirées sur le toit-terrasse, c'est extraordinaire.
Le quartier est l'un des derniers véritables quartiers populaires de Beyrouth Est, que la folie du marché immobilier libanais n'a pas (encore?) frappé de plein fouet. C'est un quartier très vivant (amateur de grasse matinée s'abstenir!) : petits commerces de toute sorte, vielles dames curieuses et bavardes au pied des immeubles et gamins dans les ruelles en fin d'après-midi! Une face de Beyrouth que j'ai été ravi de découvrir.
Celynn est plus qu'un hôte. C'est mon deuxième séjour chez elle et elle vous fait vraiment vous sentir bien à Beyrouth. Elle adore sa ville et partage tout ce qu'il y a de bien de Beyrouth. N'hésitez pas à lui poser des questions sur son activité artistique. Elle fait vraiment des choses merveilleuses. Merci à toi Celynn.
The house is quite big and comfortable and the neighbourhood is friendly and quiet. Celynn is very nice and helpful, a great hostess.
In October 2013, I stayed at Celynn's flat in Beirut, Karm az-Zaytoun for the second time for several weeks. I like the place for
1. the relatively quiet and airy surrounding, compared to most other places so central in Beirut
2. the aesthetic value of living in an old house (mid 20th century building I guess) in a hilly, Christian neighborhood with a view to the mountains and the see.
The facilities are appropriate for the price, i. e. simple and sometimes a bit tricky, but working. The bed is not for the princess on the pea, since the matress lies on a plank let into the bed frame.
Celynn is a committed landlord trying to take care as fast as possible of everything that's not in order. She also knows to recommend places in Beirut and Lebanon that are worth visiting.
Celynn was the ideal host--everything was in perfect order for my stay. The flat was clean, and is located in a quiet, calm location with everything you need still close by. Highly recommended.
Celine was great in having the room ready to go, showing me around the neighborhood, and it was really fantastic that she was at the apartment awaiting my arrival. Beirut was quite confusing in the beginning :).
She answered all questions promptly and was available at all times via text or email.
I would stay at Celine's place again in a heartbeat. She is a great host and really wants her guests to enjoy Beirut.
I stayed for five weeks at Celynn's apartment and had a great time there. Celynn was very hospitable, helpful and answered messages immediately whenever there were questions.
The apartment is huge and nice and especially the balcony is amazing. We spent so much time there!
The Ashrafieh neighborhood is very calm and especially the street were the apartment is located is not noisy at all. Shops where you can get everything you need are close by and I particularly recommend the Egyptian Falafel-Shop, which offers really good food.
Thank you very much Celynn! I will definitively stay again in your apartment during my next trip to lovely Beirut!

About the Host, Celynn
Looking Forward to receiving guests from around the world to share the apartment where I plan on working on my Design and art.
still setting up an office/ work/studio space, taking forever, meanwhile renting the rooms :)
I would like to make this space vibrant by having every kind of inspiring people come in.
I love Beirut, Design and public space discourse :)
