The Space

Achrafieh is home to some of the most established as well as trendiest boutiques, restaurants & local hangouts, many public gardens and grand palaces and is within walking distance to Downtown with its historic buildings and souks, the National Museum, and just a 95-step historic staircase to the buzzing nightlife of Gemmazyeh and Mar Mikhael areas. Taxis/Servees are easily available at every street corner, and airport is only a 15 minute drive away. Highways leading to other parts of Lebanon are easily accessible from here too.

The building is of typical 1950s nostalgic Beirut architecture which has retained the style when Beirut was the Paris of the Middle East, with original tiling, open common parts and green wood shutters. There is no lift but a porter can help with your luggage upon arrival. It is in a fantastic spot to relax in with views across Beirut, enjoy a sunset drink from the terrace, and easily the best location for seeing art, culture and shopping or experiencing the culinary variety of contemporary Beirut and the its nightlife.

Like everywhere in Beirut, Achrafieh has 3 hours of power cut every day, the hours following a set schedule between 6am and 6pm, and never outside those hours.

  • Bahi was very attentive to all my needs.

    Beautiful apartment. Perfect elite location in Beruit. Apartment had everything we needed. Very clean; tidy; has all amenities.

    Loved staying here. Would come back year after year.

    Ashrafieh is full of the best restaurants & cafe. Walking distance to downtown; abc mall & the best night life the citys got to offer.

    Stayed here in Winter. Felt very safe & warm. Loved the comport of the A/C. Loved to be able to make this feel like home for the month on my vaction.

    My family & friends that came by to visit me loved it & were full of complements.

    Thank you Bahi for your beautiful home. This is a experience I will never forget.

    It is 1000% better than any hotel.

    This is luxury at another level.

  • My boyfriend and I had a great time in Beirut.

    We stayed for 10 nights, the apartments was is clean, in a great location, nice and modern yet homely.

    The place had all the essentials if we wanted to stay in for the day, with the kitchen fully equipped to cook at home, wifi and a great selection of books to read. Also close to trendy bars and cafes if you wanted to head out.

    Bahi is lovely and make us feel welcome. He was out traveling while we were there, though still made sure we were ok.

    Thanks for a great stay Bahi!

  • Great place, great location and great facilities.

    I've seen a lot of apartments in Beirut, and this one is so far the best renovated and modern one yet - but without loosing its touch of personality.

    The kitchen is of high standards and has everything you need to cook for an entire family. The beds are comfortable, the toilets are clean and the rooftop with flowers, trees, candlelights and a great view is the perfect place to enjoy a beer.

    Bahi is very friendly and helpful. He was out traveling while we were there, but he still texted us too hear how everything was.

    I would recommend this place to anyone.

  • It was such a pleasant stay! The place is very well designed and furnished, the location is in the heart of Ashrafieh with everything around, Bahi is such a generous and amazing host, he made everything easy for us and I was so touched by his kindness, we have now an amazing friend and we definitely know where to stay next time because we enjoyed the beautiful terrace and all that comes with it :) I recommend this place to everyone who appreciates art, design, city, and friendship :) Thanks again Bahi!
