In itself the stairs are maybe not a destination. However it is definitely worthwhile to plan this in a route through this part of town. We met some wonderful people whilst descending the stairs. Just a coincidental meeting that helped bridge the big gap between...More

I really don’t understand the hype about these stairs. I’ve been told there were sometimes concerts on the stairs. Then it might be fun. But otherwise, there is nothing special about these stairs

For once a place in Beirut where there are no cars passing by, but only pedestrians. Pleasant ambiance with some green and Meshmosh hotel with prices as steep as the stairs.
