L'appartement est bien situé dans un quartier animé et agréable Joli terrasse Celynn est une hôte accueillante et attentive et à la fois qui sait être discrète Je conseille cet appartement
Ich habe den Aufenthalt in der Wohnung von Celynn sehr genossen, schöne Wohnung, toller Blick, relativ ruhig, nette Nachbarschaft. Einziger Knackpunkt: Während meines Aufenthalts fiel das Wlan aus, aber das soll wohl wieder gefixt werden. Aber auch hier war Celynn super hilfsbereit und flexibel und hat einen Stick besorgt. Danke!
très bon accueil au sein du quartier vivant d'Achrafieh et à 2 pas de la place Sassine.
J'ai été très bien accueillie par Celynn, disponible et à l'écoute. Appartement situé dans un quartier très vivant de Beyrouth, avec une très belle vue sur la ville et la montagne. Je recommande l'appartement de Celynn aux voyageurs qui veulent découvrir Beyrouth authentique et populaire, chaleureuse et communicative.
My boyfriend and I had a very very nice stay in Celynn's room. We were also lucky enough for having the full flat for us for 5 days over 7. the flat is nice and tidy and it is a good deal with respect to the price. the room is pretty comfortable and the nice balcony hosted us in our coffee-beers-cigarettes poses. the neighborhood is very nice, definitely the part in Beirut we liked the most. around the flat, there are many shops and small restaurants and bars with any sort of food and drinks for a wide range of prices. therefore, overall our experience was very positive and Celynn is a very nice girl, always available to help and advice. just a tiny negative note is the level of cleanness of the house, which was not over the top. the bed lines are clean and fresh but the house was pretty dusty. I would advice a (serious) cleaning lady to come before new guests arrive! but, considering the price, as I said the experience was very positive and we definitely recommend Celynn's flat even for a long term stay in Beirut. thank you Celynn!
Celynn is a very nice and kind host, always available for advices concerning the city or anithing you might need in Lebanon.
Celine's place is unarguably the most wonderful view you'll get in Beirut at the best price. But what you get is also Celine: This wonderful, smart and amazingly helpful smiling creature! My trip wouldn't have been the same without her. The flat has all the basics you need and this area of Ashrafieh is both peaceful, lively and charming. Remember a big woolen sweater for when the sun sets, as it gets cold inside in the evening in winter. Remember to go on the roof top sometime too. Wouldn't trade this place for the world.
