“Wonderful and Friendly Staff”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Had a great stay at the Saifi suites.
I had a lot of last minute travel changes and the hotel was more than accomodating. They even lowered my arte since I was now staying as one person in the room and not two.
Check in was fast and smooth and the room is quite spacious, modern and clean. There is some construction happening across from the hotel, however with the windows closed you can't hear a thing. The only problem I faced was that the air conditioning in the hotel doesn't turn on until the end of February which made it extremely hot and forced me to sleep with the windows open - not very secure - and wake up with the construction. Maybe the hotel can have the option of fans??
I never made it down to breakfast since it ended quite early at 1030am but the Society bistro seems very popular drawing a young crowd.
Overall a great hotel with a great location - just 5 minutes walking from downtown and at the top of Gemmayze (steps away from Fauchon and Paul's).
Very friendly staff. I hope they can manage to maintain the service at the great prices since this gem really is great value for money!

Room Tip: Higher floor means you have no obstruction of your view.

Great location for walking to Gemayzeh, Downtown and very central. No pool but rooms are spacious and clean. The hotel is new, 2012, and have a feel of a smaller hip boutique without being one. You have a microwave, free bottled water and kettle and coffee. I have a massive room with a walk in shower. My friends had a smaller room with a bath - so best to ask if you have a preference. Staff are one and friendly. Has a very European feel to it. Breakfast are turns into a cool loung bar at night. Highly recommend it if you are not bothered about having a pool or beach front.

Room Tip: My room was on the 8th floor and had a bigger floor space then the ones on the 10th which had a bigg...

Dear RKNTravels,

It is a great pleasure for us to know that you enjoyed your stay at our hotel.

We are lucky to have such a convenient location and spacious rooms.
As for our 10th floor rooms, the greenery on their balconies unfortunately took out a very small space from the room size.

Awaiting to have you again at SAIFI Suites.

Best Regards,
Rolana Habchy

Saifi Suites has a good standard of rooms, and service. The location is extremely good, walking distance to downtown and Gemmayzeh an area full of life and night attractions. Very low noise in the room despite the central area in the middle of very good restaurants and pubs.

Room Tip: Higher floors are better positioned versus noise and view on the sea

First of all this is a personal experience in a certain time it-cod be wrong
The hotel location is very good between the solider shopping attraction very close to saifai Villegas brand attraction and gemayze st. were is the food attraction
The rooms and excellent suites it nice with new furniture and the perfect size whith free good wi fi but need moor attention to clean les of the floors
The bad reception staff u feel that they bay u money more than u are guest of the hotel
The concierge staff is the best in all staff of hotel they are only staff may apologize if any thing go wrong like when you discover that they don't have standard room service and you have to order from the ristorante belong to some body-els so you have to stick with their menu no mor no les
I visit the hotel twice so far and certainly I'll be back again regardless the little things I notes and recommend these hotel to others travelers to Beirut

Room Tip: The location more nice view from sixth floor above direct to see side

Hotel is brand new. It opened in mid October (2012). Stayed there over a weekend. The furniture and fit out are modern and practical. Room was well sized and had a great view of the beach. The bed and pillows were fantastic and the walk in shower was a bliss. The staff were exceptionally helpful and willing to serve to their max potential. Jessy was very helpful and supportive during my booking process. Wifi is free and so is the valet. The hotel is centrally located within walking minutes from Gemayze and Centre Ville. I highly recommend this new gem in Beirut !!

Relatively new hotel. Staff were great, especially Jessy. Breakfast pastries very yummy. Wish I could have stayed longer. Local business partner said the restaurant was also excellent, unfortunately we didn´t have the time to try it.
