The flat has the 1940's caracteristics of a Beiruty flat, spacious with high ceilings and airy with lots of light. It has a large communal space, a cozy kitchen, 3 bedrooms, one bathroom and an extra toilet. It has two very pleasant verandas, one of them is above a busy street, the other faces the morning sun and the quieter neighborhood.
I'm a set designer so the flat is full of objects bought here and there with their particular stories. It sometimes changes its aspect depending on a new coup de coeur found in a market in Argentina, India, or other travel destination, a props returning from a shoot or theatre play, or a beautiful designer piece.
The flat is situated in Gemayzeh, one of the few remaining street in Beirut with a traditional architecture. This said, it comes with a few anachronisms. Please don't expect a modern flat. It has all amenities provided, but it can happen as in all this neighbourhood, that you'd get a water cut, that we would resolve in a couple of hours by filling up water from private cisterns. This happens very rarely but it can occur.
The charm and great architecture of this flat comes with a bit of a downside.
It is quite an ideal location for someone on holiday wanting to explore the city. You are at the doorstep of a very large choice of restaurants in the street, a stroll away from the bars and hip area of Mar Mikhael, and very close to the highway that takes you South or North.

Jane, who takes care of the flat when i'm not in Beirut will let you in. Check in is after 3pm and check out at 11 am, but this is flexible depending on the previous or next guests.
