The SpaceFunky one-bedroom ideal for traveling businesswomen, exchange students, curious visitors to foreign lands, someone who just decided to study Arabic abroad, reporters who miss a hot meal instead of a cold hotel bed.
In addition to a glassed-balcony offering private living space with Wifi, TV, Cable and a roster of books and DVD’s, as you sit serenely, seven stories high, over the bustling streets of Beirut.
Guest AccessShared living room and kitchen (all fully updated) in addition to your very own private bathroom. Interaction with GuestsA charming, insightful, mother of four…three of which have left the nest. If you wake up early enough, you might get to enjoy a power walk with her down the seafront. You can also partake in the company of her one remaining, hilariously funny daughter. Hot meals and airport services can also be arranged.
And if you’d prefer to just unwind, your privacy will be respected. The NeighborhoodZarif (which means “cute” in Arabic) sits at the crossroads of Hamra, Downtown, Achrafieh, and the Airport. It’s a short ten-minute walk to Hamra, where you’ll find universities like AUB and LAU, and a lively array of stores, cafés, pubs, and theatres.
The area is no more than a twenty-minute drive to most areas of Beirut. And depending on traffic, walking will probably be faster. Getting AroundFor public transportation, just walk down the street and yell "Service!" (Pronounced sir'veese).
Private transportation can also easily be arranged. Other Things to Note24/7 electricity with generator, hot water, AC & Heat, (overly) dedicated doorman, parking nearby + street parking in off hours. Super close to any amenities you might need, including minimarkets (aka dekanneh), big markets, salons, and fresh produce. Plus a huge filling of true Beiruti character.
Side note, the building’s called Paradise.
