About this listing
Cosy 37sqm 1BD located in a heritage 1930's art deco building in the heart of Achrafieh at the door of Saifi Village, Gemayzeh and Monot neighborhoods. The best of Beirut nightlife is only steps away, yet the apartment is in a quiet spot of town.
The space is warm and wonderfully located to enjoy Beirut's best day and night life at walking distance. The flat is part of a charming old art deco 1930's building. It can comfortably fit 2 people and a 3rd person can also be lodged on a folding bed.
I provide my guests with books, guides and maps of Beirut and Lebanon. Some coffee, tea and bottled mineral water are offered upon arrival.
Interaction with Guests
I take great pleasure in guiding my guests through the best places to visit in Lebanon, according to the time frame they have. From restaurants, pubs, art galleries, historical sites, beach clubs, hiking paths, skiing/snow shoeing, etc.
My neighborhood still has what Beirut is slowly but surely loosing: traditional architectural character and green space! We are blessed with the Tabet property immense garden and the Jesuits old school and church. The street also lodges the Monot theater and the Oriental public library that abounds with 16th century manuscripts.
The apartment is very well located as everything can be found in the neighborhood on foot! Buses and taxis stops are at 50 meters. Nearest beach clubs are only 1.5km away. Moreover, nightlife in the Gemayzeh and Monot pubs and restaurants is only 5 minutes walking distance.
Airport is at a 10 minute drive when traffic is fluid. In order to facilitate my guests arrival, I offer a safe and reliable taxi service to the apartment for $25.
Other Things to Note
The apartment is located on ground floor, so light is not one of its assets. Therefore, I kindly ask you to keep your light expectations low, thank you.
We have another studio located right next door that you can check on: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/2185129?s=2Pdj
The apartment is strictly NON-smoking. I love animals but some guests are allergic to animals fur, so unfortunately no pets are allowed. Apart from those 2 rules, please feel at home.
Everything went perfectly. Fabienne is a gracious and attentive host, and this apartment is fully equipped, nicely designed and well-located in the cool Ashrafiyeh neighborhood, near many restaurants, cafes, etc. I would stay here again very happily.
A great location , I really enjoyed my stay here. Fabienne is very friendly, welcoming and helpful.
Fabienne is a charming and gracious host and a delightful person, and it was my pleasure to stay with her again in Beirut. She is kind and patient and accommodating. When my brother came to visit, she even arranged an extra bed to be brought into the flat. The flat itself is in a perfect location and everything is in excellent condition. Cannot recommend highly enough and hope to be back again soon. Thank you, Fabienne!
Fabienne was great. Very friendly and always responsive to any questions I had. The room was great. Comfortable and well-located to explore Beirut. The ceilings can get low because it's in the bottom floor, but the room description mentioned that - so no surprise. The neighborhood was great. Lots of restaurants, theaters and shops nearby. Easy walks to see and to experience many things in Beirut. I recommend.
The location of the house is really good for the people who dont want to pay a lot of money to taxi. Also there is a lot of charming bars around the home location. And in the house we found everything we want and we need. Also Fabienne is a great and very sweet host. Definetly we will stay at same place if we come again this beatiful city(:
My stay at Fabienne's apartment was delightful. Fabienne is a welcoming and responsive host--she was there after midnight to greet me and talk me through everything related to the apartment. She remained so responsive throughout my stay--whenever I had a question, she was there.
The apartment was in a perfect location for me, halfway between all the great restaurants and bars in Gemmayze and Sodecco. It was in a quiet neighborhood, even though it was only a block away from one of the main boulevards. That is difficult to find in Beirut!
The apartment itself is really lovely. It's also kept very clean and comfortable. It's in a nice older style building, which I loved.
Definitely will want to stay again, as my experience with Fabienne and the apartment were first rate. I felt very much at home!
