I found here when I was exploring the downtown Beirut, there are beautiful renewed buildings in narrow streets. And some cafes. I think it's worth a visit if you are around,and definitely it won't take much of your time.

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.
