“Quiet place in Beirut”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2013

I loved the place. It's a quiet area in the middle of downtown Beirut in spite of all the hustle and bustle around.
The shops are good, especially Cream. Loved it!

“Nice but no soul”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2013

This is a small area, very central, beautifully rehabilitated. Hence superb buildings, for the super rich.
There are a few galleries and restaurants but this is it.
Nothing really happens there. And there is no life.

“Luxury &Elegance in the heart of Beirut”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2013

Saifi Village is at the central district of Beirut, where welcomes you with its antique shops, luxurious boutiques, lovely cafes and old but well kept buildings. If you like shopping (antiques, textile products, significant souvenirs etc.) and afterwards a small rest by eating a cheesecake and drinking an espresso or a glass of wine, i can assure you that, Saifi Village is definitely your No.1

“Nothing to do..”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013

The village is at the heart of Beirut; but it's far more interesting to go see other nearby places than to check out this one. It's boring with not much or nothing to do at all - except for some OVER priced restaurants
