This is downtown of Beirut, you are close to everything, a lot of shopping places, cafes, restaurants, transportation, the street is clean and always busy so you can live the Lebanese life. People in the street are polite.

A must see visit while in Lebanon. Want great views of the sea ? Try the view from the AUB Campus. Like to try different kinds of food? You wont be disappointed; there are many restaurants in the area offering all types of cuisine. Shopping on Hamra Street is very good. Higher education is well represented with major Lebanese Universities... More

Hamra is the social hub of Beirut, a good place to stay if you are food lover and a bar goer, the night bars especially during the weekend are the best places to mingle and blend in with the locals.

Hamra street is THE place to go for visitors and locals. The street offers, restaurants, theater, art exhibitions, shops, cafes, libraries,... and the list goes on. It also harbors both cheap and high-end hotels.

Nice shops and variability of restaurants, very welcoming area and cozy streets, but sometimes dirty streets and a lot of cars.
