Place of rest, relaxation, open for a safe and profound study of Lebanese culture, the host and neighbors are nice, open-minded people, sympathetic, always ready to help, to prompt and take care of. The apartment located in the old historic house with good local design, high ceilings and Arabic ornament on the floor. The balcony on which it seems pleasant to spend the whole vacation with an ambiguous view of the ambiguous Beirut. The entire period I was thinking about how lucky I am to get to Sam's place. In short, do not doubt!

The appartment is exactly what you dream about when arriving to Beirut. Although the city has changed a lot in the recents years, some traditional buildings still resist, and Sam's apartment is in one of then. You can enjoy the very high ceiling, the huge rooms, the two balcony or the rooftop, while watching the view through the three ottoman style windows, that i love ! More importantly, Sam has been an amazing host even if it was a short stay ! He was very welcoming and happy to show me the city, and take me out with his friends !! I instantly felt at home and wanted to stay more...

The apartment is nice, but I found it too loud for my style. People who live there love to party at night and thus the atmosphere of an open house. So if you are looking for young people to hang out with and have a good time rather than a peaceful and private place, then it is a good choice.

I don't think that anything stands in your way for having a great time in this appartment. Whether you read your book and chill on the balcony with the lovely cat, explore the vibrant neighbourhood or dive into Beirut's nightlife - anything can happen! Sam and his little purring partner on four legs have been helpful and charming hosts. My time here definitely leaves nothing to be desired :)

I felt instantly at home from the moment I set foot in Sam's apartment! While spacious rooms with traditional high ceilings, tiled floors bearing arabesques and quaint pieces of furniture convey an enchanting old-fashioned charm, Sam has managed to add a decidedly funky atmosphere by adorning his apartment with a set of eclectic and vivid decorations. It's a fabulous place to prepare one's daily excursions, whether sipping infused homegrown mint on the shady balcony, which offers an amazing view of the Beirut skyline and the sea, or lingering in the cosy living room with prime funk and soul music in the background. Sam is an incredible host: cheerful, laid-back, welcoming and available, effortlessly switching from French to English, he never missed an opportunity to give me an insight into Lebanese customs, culture and history, and always had plenty of helpful tips and (URL HIDDEN) at hand. He really contributed to making my stay special, and I am extremely grateful to him for that. I will undoubtedly go back to his place if I have the chance to visit Lebanon again!

Dés mon arrivé, cet appartement calme avec une vue incroyable donnant sur la mer a donné le ton à mon séjour. Tout y est adapté pour qu'on se sente à l'aise et comme chez nous. La terrasse avec ses grands fauteuils pour profiter des derniers rayons de soleil le soir, les très hauts plafonds qui donnent l'impression d'être d'un autre temps, la décoration funky et cosy, le séjour plein de vie, la musique qui résonne en fond... C'est un délice. Le quartier est très bien situé, on y trouve beaucoup de restaurants, bars et lieux charmants. Les hôtes sont de loin les personnes les plus accueillantes que j'ai rencontré jusque là via air bnb : ils sont à notre écoute, toujours là pour donner quelques conseils, des histoires sur la ville, et pour nous faire gouter des plats d'ici. Sam est discret mais d'une gentillesse sans borne et les personnes qui vivent avec lui le sont tout autant. Ils ont enchanté mon séjour et l'ont rendu palpitant. Je conseille à quiconque cet endroit de rêve et de charme, tant pour le lieu que pour les personnes qui y donnent vie.
