Great place to stay in one of the nicest neighborhoods of Beirut. Hayete is in a beautiful Beirut apartment building: high ceilings, original floors, decorated brilliantly by the fantastic Swiss owner (check out the photography on the walls). The West room is brilliant - its huge and decorated in a cool mid-century vibe (the furniture was found in antique stores in Syria). Staying at Hayete is a very different Beirut experience - its like having your own little home to come back to at the end of a day in brilliant Beirut. Its not the Four Seasons, and it doesnt pretend to be, but you'll probably find that it is much more special.
The neighborhood has some great restaurants and Germmayze - a strip full of bars and restaurants - is an easy 10 minute walk away. People have mentioned that people dont walk in Beirut and you have to get a taxi everywhere - thats not exactly true but if you do need a taxi the office of a local taxi company is about 50 metres away from Hayete - they always have cars on hand and the rates are cheap.
