The neighborhood is a quiet one since its street is an internal one with several grocery stores and mini-markets and coffee shops near by. There are also several near by places with laundry cleaning services. A small police station is also 5 blocks away (to make this area a more secure place).
House Rules are very flexible since the whole apartment is yours with one exception of no pets. Loud music is discouraged after midnight since you have neighbors close to you. Visitors are allowed any time in the day till 2 AM. The place is secure to keep your belongings, and for extra security, you can put them in a safety box for the building.
Great place and a great view on Beyrouth. Close to all the great place of the city. The owner was waiting us lately for the key. I recommand that place for your stay
Mohamad was an excellent host. We didn't actually meet due to my hectic schedule while I was in Beirut, but he contacted me regularly and was very keen to provide with 4 whatever assistance he could to help with my travels in the area. I couldn't ask for more.
The apparent itself was excellent.
Centrally located in the bustling tourist district of Hamra, it was close to the waterfront, restaurants and shops etc.
The place itself was the penthouse of the building, with 4 large balconies and a double spa in the master bedroom, which was awesome! (the second bedroom with 2 smaller beds had it's own lavatory and shower but was a little more spartan)
I hope to return in 2015 to run the Beirut Marathon again and would love to stay here again.
There are wonderful views in all directions of the Mediterranean, the mountains and the city.
My only regret is that "Mo's Gangster Pad", as we invariably referred to it was ideally set up for socializing, with multiple balconies and generous living areas, but we didn't end up spending much time at home!
I suspect that in summer, this place would be pretty much perfect.
I really enjoyed the location (2 blocks from Hamra St's restaurants and shopping) and the staff (everyone was super helpful especially Mohamad who coaxed our fears about visiting after the recent bombing and worked hard to get us a discount when one couple was unable to travel). The view was amazing- you can see the water from two directions. There was plenty of space, AC, and hot water. Unfortunately it rained while we were there and some of the windows leaked- resulting in some mustiness and mold. And the apartment is better suited for a family of four than two couples since there is only one bath/shower (the other bathroom is a half-bath).
Appartement extrêmement agréable à occuper: 1 chambre lit double avec grande salle de bain / 1 chambre 2 lits simples avec petite salle de bain / 1 cuisine / 1 grand salon + superbe terrasse(s).
La terrasse avec vue Nord Est Sud sur Beyrouth et les montagne à l'est est très appréciable pour profiter du soleil la matin et du frais dès le coucher du soleil! Un point qui selon moi fait une grande partie de la différence avec les autres appartements de l'immeuble Diana Tower.
Quelques petits soucis "techniques" du style fuite de douche, toilettes bouchées (heureusement il y en a 3!), verrou bloqué. Le personnel sur place est très disponible, réception ouverte 24/24h. Il faut juste s'adresser à la bonne personne pour obtenir ce que l'on veut! Mais le service au client est une priorité.
Nettoyage de l'appartement quotidien + changement des serviettes.
Le petit déjeuner est servi dans l'appartement directement, à commander 30 minutes en avance.
Très bien situé dans le quartier animé de Hamra avec des possibilités de resto & de sorties nombreuses!
Une très très bonne expérience, pour un très bon rapport qualité prix à Beyrouth. J'y retourne pour mon prochain séjour à Beyrouth!
Had a great time staying in Beirut... Location was absolutely perfect... In and amongst all the best shopping, bars, pubs and clubs with everything else only a short cab ride away.. All the staff were very helpful and friendly and the place was always kept nice, clean and tidy...
My only criticism would be the wireless internet connection, but from what i understand, this is a citywide issue..
Would definitely recommend and would definitely stay there again!
