Is a residential upscale neighbourhood in Beirut, Lebanon. Saifi Village is located at the southeastern periphery of Centre Ville. The village is bordered by Rue Charles Debbas to the south, Rue George Haddad to the east, Rue Gouraud to the north, and Rue Ariss & Kanaani to the west.

Our hotel was nearby and we visited this cozy neighborhood on our last day in Beirut. It looks like recently refurbished and it is home of some art galleries and jewelry shops. Not really impressive, but nice for a stroll.

Saifi is a popular and central district but you have to walk along the narrow streets and just look for the old buildings. Nothing very special for the huge expectations but so enjoying visiting little magazins and to look graffiti.

One of the nicest and most compact areas to wander around in Beirut, although not the easiest to get to given the mad traffic on the roads around it. Worth a visit though for the sympathetic and considered design, nice shops et al.
