I love Saifi village, it feels like you left Lebanon and entered a different country. Beautiful colorful buildings and narrow streets. Take a stroll or sit in one of the cafes and enjoy the calmness.

This is a very attractive area for a stroll. There are lots of vacant store fronts but some restaurants seem to be opening.

Nice authentic old building very calm and reflects the real beauty of old Beirut. If you are interested in visiting hidden places you must have a walk with your cam and discover the ultimate silence and calmness in the middle of the crazy city...

Modelled on old building designs Saifi Village is a rather twee enclave of quiet calm where ladies that lunch go - for an expensive lunch! Clean, up-market but not very authentic.

Write ups suggested an active restaurant and art scene, and while there is some of that there, not really enough to warrant a trip.

It’s a pretty new development near the center of Beirut. Not much to see but it gives you a flavour of the historical architecture of the city.
