Did you first hear of Hamra Street because of “Homeland”? Don’t believe that crap. Lively, charming, buzzing, restaurants, boutiques, nightlife, it has it all.

Good place to go in the evenings. Plenty of small shops and restaurants with a variety of food. Two good places to eat are, Mado which serves Lebanese food and Dar Alsultani which does Lebanese as well as Italian.

This street is disgusting with garbage all over and stench of sewage makes you want to vomit. I don’t understand how people can eat or drink at a cafe there when it smells like that.

Unfortunately I never stayed at that hotel. But as far as my understanding goes, most of the hotels serve it.

I changed U.S and AUD. Check hotel for rates. I found the local shops do better rates. I changed money in a mobile phone shop and jewelers and they were very good rates.
