There are many reasons to recommend Hayete Guesthouse. The location, which is an easy ten-minute walk from Gemmayzeh. The price. The photo-shoot calibre decor (I'm not overstating it: there was actually a photo shoot while I was there.). The feast of a breakfast they whipped up for me one morning that kept me going until dinner. The main reason I'd...

I stayed at Hayete for 10 days while I had a job conference in Beirut. The hotel is perfectly located in the heart of Ashrafieh, Beirut. It is just a 15 min walking distance from ABC mall, very close to downtown, and jemayze street where you can find plenty of restaurants/pubs. The apartment looks better than it does in the...

Already when entering we felt the warmth of this unique and perfectly located hotel. The staff was very responsive and was always trying to fulfill our requests. Especially the owners (Elias) friendliness, openness and care for detail needs to be mentioned as it made our stay even more memorable. Thank you and definitely till next time very soon!

We stayed for a couple of nights at Hayete Guest house and it was simply amazing. The house is a typical Lebanese house, well decorated with a lot of taste, simplicity and character. It is very well located in the center of Achrafieh, close to great restaurants, pubs and a nice shopping mall. The manager was very nice and helpful...

We went to Beirut and rented out the entire place for a week, which was excellent for our group. The apartment is super stylish and nicely embraces Beirut's golden 60ies with modern charme and details. The staff was super friendly and helpful and the owner Elias and his sister Carolina clearly went the extra mile to make our stay truly...

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...

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.

“The East Room has its own bath room, but no balcony. The windows open out to a very narrow courtyard with a sheeting roof below, which can make some noise in the event of rain.”
