Saifi is located near downtown in a more residential area near restaurants and away from businesses/government bldgs. The hotel is fairly new and has a very modern design. The rooms and facilities are very clean. Free valet parking is quite useful in a city like Beirut. The gym facility is located in the building next door and shared with the residents of said building, so that may be a deterrent for some, but it was not for me.
The frontdesk was serviceable, but none of the employees I encountered from concierge to waiter in the week that I stayed there were friendly or warm, which was a huge contrast given I had just come from Istanbul, where hospitality was king.
All factors considered, I got a good deal last minute and the hotel suited my needs, though had I paid "full price", I would likely be less satisfied.More
