You can find almost everything from local specialities to international offer on this street. Hamra is very busy and you shouldn't avoid it once visiting Beirut.

Nice hotel, nice central area, but traffic makes things very difficult and taxi drivers even more difficult to go around. Beirut is not what I remember since 2005...and the prices of everything are very high...especially taxis, restaurants and drinks.

I love Hamra. Although it is quite dirty and full of poverty, the area has a charm to it. There are great places to shop and eat as well
