We stayed here based on Trip Advisor reviews and loved it. This is a fabulous guesthouse. Service was excellent. Room was great. We really enjoyed breakfast on the patio talking with others from all over Europe and Lebanon.

I stayed here because a friend visiting with me wanted a "more authentic Beirut experience" than a hotel. I wasn't overly impressed. This is 1930's period apartment building of which one of the apartments has been converted into a guesthouse. The bathrooms feel a little worn and unclean. The rooms with a private bathroom need updating as the bathrooms look... More

Difficult to review. Located in a hip area of Beirut in a quaint, pretty old building Hayete is a relatively peaceful place to stay compared with downtown and Hamra hotels. However, I think it's probably a bit overpriced for what you get. We were given keys via the driver who collected us from the airport and only saw the owner/manager... More

Spent a fantastic 6 nights in Hayete over the 2012/2013 new year period. Our room, the south room, was perfect for a couple, with a very chic bed and a cute little balcony overlooking the two restaurants below. Despite the fact that we did not see the owner once during our 6 nights, we were in email and sms contact... More

The guesthouse is situated above two restaurants in a very nice building. The four rooms are situated around a common sittingroom. Being the only guests at the time, we had everything to ourselves - only shared with the housekeeper and an angry bird in a nice voliere. Every morning a simple but delicious breakfast was made ready for us. This... More

The 2nd B of B+B is often very simple indeed - coffee/tea, fruit, starchy component. But at this lovely B+B in the Ashrafiyya neighborhood of Beirut it is so so much more: several kinds of bread, some mornings fresh baked mana'ish, others kunafa (still warm!), croissants, Arabic bread; fruit and jam and orange juice; laban (youghurt); olives and fresh vegetables;...

My friend and I stayed at Hayete for 10 nights this summer. We loved touring beautiful Lebanon during the day and coming back to relaxing Hayete in the late afternoon/evening. The porch is a nice place to eat breakfast and read books during the warm days. The breakfast was light and enjoyable...I enjoyed the fresh croissants. Probably the best part... More

This was my first trip to Beirut, travelling solo to do a course; stayed here for 4 nights. I felt at home here from the first minute, it has a very homey atmosphere. I kept phoning Robert with questions and requests and he was always really really helpful, from lending me a travel adaptor to helping me to order take-away... More

As several of the other reviews have stated, if you are looking for luxury, this is not the place, but if you are looking for a destination with a neighborhood feel in an architecturally historic guesthouse, that helps you envision what Beirut was during the “Paris of the middle east days”, than this is the place for you. Beirut has... More

This is a guesthouse/B&B in a period building, not a bland highrise 4* hotel. As such, it has tonnes of character, every room is different, but if you need double glazing, concierge service, hairdryers and sterile surroundings this place isn't for you. What is is a place with friendly hosts, who are very helpful. They serve great breakfasts on the... More
