About this listing
Quiet and spacious 200 meter square historic apartment with a central location in the heart of Beirut.
The apartment is located in Geitawi (the area above Mar Michael) and is accessed by a large set of rainbow colored stairs.
Huge rooms with tons of natural light, high ceilings and fresh breezes. There is a shared balcony overlooking the port, large communal dining table with view, comfortable living room and full kitchen with laundry and one and a half baths. The bedroom has a private balcony.
You'll be sharing the flat with me (photographer) and another flatmate/airbnb guest. I am very quiet and hospitable and like meeting new people.
Our house cat, Ashta, usually lives in the space, but not anymore, he is on holidays in Spain.
Kitchen is well stocked, has a fridge, oven, toaster, and water cooler.
Interaction with guests
I love traveling and meeting new people, so rest assured that I will assist you, and will give you an insider's tip on some cool places that you should visit.
The apartment is very unique for its space and location. It's ideal for those who like to work from home, and those who are looking into exploring the city, and enjoying the nightlife. I
Within walking distance from the flat you can check out Radio Beirut (an excellent pub and music venue), Saifi Urban Gardens (language school and cafe), and Tartine Bakery (best bread/pastries in Beirut) not to mention plenty of other shops, a supermarket, 2 hospitals, 2 pharmacies and many restaurants and pubs.
Gemayzeh is 5 minutes away by foot and another 10 minutes of walking will get you to Downtown. You can also easily fetch a cab or the bus from down the street which can take you anywhere you want.
