Had to stay there during more than a week, no cleaning was done, the owners were very intrusive and asked a lot of personal questions, no breakfast, no internet during many days because they did not pay for it and they did not even try to solve the issue, even saw a huge cockroach in the kitchen. Will never go... More

Had a terrible stay. It was impossible to sleep with all the noise outside and the super thin walls. When we wanted to check out early we had to pay for what we booked. Don't be fooled to stat at this guest house.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights and it was definitely worth it! At $100 a night, it is not a budget option but the breakfast was good and the room (North) very comfortable. The owner Carina, was exceptionally helpful when I rang to book (I could not get the website to work for the booking) and we... More

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
